Meal Plan #10

In celebration of the tenth weekly meal plan here on, I am launching a new “Friends with Recipes” series! I have lined up some of my favourite Instagrammers to share their favourite weeknight meals with you, and would LOVE to hear from the rest of you as well! Check out the “Friends with Recipes” page for more info!

I’m going for an easy week of dinners due to our impending move on Saturday (!!), so I’m taking things easy this week. I have added a yummy pre-made meal on Monday, I’m using up some freezer items on Tuesday and Thursday, and we’ll go out to dinner on Friday given that our entire house will be in boxes by then!

Gruyere Mac and Cheese with Spinach

This mac and cheese is one of our favourites. I like to make it with gruyere and a bit of cheddar, but it would be yummy with any cheese as long as it melts nicely!


[Bonus: I managed to only dirty one pot, a strainer, and a casserole dish to make clean up easier! If you are clever, you could do the entire thing with one oven safe pot and a strainer.]

Weekly Meal Plan #3

I was in a panic last week when I realised that my two dinners from Marley Spoon were coming this week and not last week! I happened to have some frozen fish cakes on hand that saved the day for one night, and we ended up going for dinner at a friend’s house the second night, so it all worked out in the end! Disaster averted. 😉

I am excited to include my most favourite lentil soup in this week’s plan. Even my mom (a notoriously picker eater) loves it! We’re also doing some quick and yummy burrito bowls. I’ll make some fried plantains for them if I get to the Brixton Market before Wednesday!

Bacon, Spinach, and Sautéed Onion Grilled Cheese.

I usually stick to healthier dinners than this, but when I saw this recipe on Cup of Jo last week, I knew I had to give it a go! My version ended up being quite different from the original recipe due to the bacon and a few shortcuts, but I can’t imagine that the original was any tastier because this was out-of-this-world delicious!! Definitely a decadent treat, but it still had spinach in it, so I refuse to feel guilty about it! 😉

Hungermama grilled cheese

While this doesn’t qualify as a one-pot meal, it is technically a one-pan meal! When all was said and done, I had only dirtied a cutting board, knife, two spatulas, and one pan. Oh, and a wine glass . . .
