Monday Meal Plans



SO thrilled with the response to this weekend's giveaway! Clearly this was right up your alley. Thanks again to Jay at Life Without Plastic for the generous giveaway. The lucky winner is Crystal who said:

phasing out our plastic storage containers. We're reusing glass storage
jars (everything from tiny baby food jars to massive pickle jars) and
I'm slowly collecting other non-plastic storage containers at yard
sales and thrift stores. This week I'm picking up oilcloth and will be
making some cloth snack bags — hopefully I can stop buying ziplock

Congratulations, Crystal!

This is a wild week for us at LuSa and Clean. We head to the Midwest
Renewable Energy Fair
in a few days, so my meal plan this week reflects
travel and festivities. I decided to share it just them same. You can edit out my travel meals and plug in your favorites. Do let me know if you're into this as a weekly post so I know if its worth continuing!

This week we'll be eating:

Another chilaquile

Our week shifted and we didn't actually make this last week. So very fast, easy, and delicious!

Beef Stir Fry

Shitake mushrooms, thinly sliced beef, and lots of bok choy on soaked rice cooked in coconut milk.

Slowcooker chili

A double batch of black bean chili with lots of fresh veggies thrown in the mix.

More tacos

This is a weekly standard around here. Homemade cumin black beans and seasoned ground bison, venison, or beef are what they're all about.

Grill out

Venison hamburgers, grilled baby zucchini, and jojos (grilled parboiled potato wedges seasoned with olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, and chili powder)

    i’m loving the meal plans! yes!

    i thought of a few more non-plastic things i’ve been looking for and working towards. first and foremost – ice pops. is there any any any non-plastic option? i’ve almost just bitten my lip and purchased them but yuck.

    the other thing – canning jars. did you know the red seal on ball jars has bpa? there’s a plastic non-bpa lid you can buy called tattler. and there’s an all glass and rubber expensive german canning jar called weck. i can send links on those if you’re interested, but they should be fairly easy to find online. crazy, isn’t it?

    I like meal plans just because I’m always super curious about what other people are eating. I also like reading others’ to-do lists and daily schedules. I am fascinated by the seemingly mundane. 🙂

    Thanks for mentioning the MREA fair. My husband didn’t know about this and he is operations manager for a company that builds and maintains wind turbines and wind farms. I’m hoping that he can send someone from the company to attend. We would, but our daughter turns 18 this weekend.

    I guess my approach to plastic it 1. Dont buy it new. 2. Use it as rarely as is reasonable. I dont fret about freezer pops. They dont last long around here and we dont eat many, so I roll with it. I think Id put the canning jar lid in the same category. It sucks for certain, but I still feel the almost all metal lids are a better choice than the white plastic ones because of the amount of plastic in contact with the food. What do you think?

    I’m loving the meal plans. I’m always happy for ideas in an area I struggle so with. Have a great time at the Energy Fair. Not sure we’re going to make it this year. My mom told me months back after I sent her your toothpaste recipe, that she actually met you there a number of years ago. Small world.
