Meal Prep To Match This Week's Meal Plan

I have decided to start a separate weekly Meal Prep post with pics and details, here is the list of what I did. If you want to see my Meal Plan, CLICK HERE. I spend roughly 3 to 4 hours on Sunday prepping food for the week. This makes meals during the week so quick and easy. It is worth it to have everything ready.

  • Boil 6 eggs, cool & store in fridge.
  • Brown ground beef for Big Mac Salad, then store in container in fridge.
  • Mix up homemade Thousand Island Dressing 
  • Mix up and bake Meatballs. Divide into 2 freezer bags for 2 family meals.
  • Make 1 dozen Banana Muffins. Freeze 4. I had a helper making the muffins this week 🙂
  • Cook Chicken in crock pot. For supper with rice, and use bones and remaining chicken for soup, to be made later that evening.
  • Cook and freeze pasta for spaghetti and a box of penne for later use.
  • Make up 4 jars of Overnight Oatmeal.
  • Season and wrap pork tenderloin and freeze. Ready to cook later in the week.
  • Thaw 2 chicken breast in fridge for use in lunches this week.
  • Bake sub buns for lunches.
  • Make and freeze Pizza Dough.
  • Cut up celery and carrots into snack bags
  • Bake biscuits to have with soup and extra for lunches or snacks for the kids.

Timing

  • Boil eggs for 2 minutes, then remove from heat and let sit covered for 10 minutes.
  • While eggs are boiling I browned 1 lb of the ground beef. This takes about 10 minutes.
  • Next, I mixed up Meatballs and got them ready to bake in the oven. This takes about 15 minutes to prepare. Then they bake for 25 minutes. TIP: when cooking meatballs, line baking pan (with sides) with tinfoil and place a cooling wrack over the pan. Place Meatballs on cooling rack so fat drips off as they bake.
  • While meatballs are cooking, the chicken went into the slow cooker for supper.
  • Next, I set up my bread machine to make my dough for the sub buns. Once set up it works for alost 2 hours mixing, raising and kneed in the dough.
  • After that I whipped up a batch of banana muffins, while letting Clayton (4yr old) help with these. 10 minutes prep.
  • After removing meatballs from oven, I placed muffins in to bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • My next task was to cook pasta, I did a box of spaghetti and a box of penne. They took about 20 minutes.
  • Once cooked and drained, I rinse the pasta in cold water and then place in freezer bags with a little olive oil.
  • Muffins are removed from oven and placed on a cooling rack.
  • Now meatballs are cooled enough to divide into one freezer bag and a container in the fridge (they will be used for Spaghetti and Meatballs meal)
  • Veggies for snacks are peeled and chopped before put in snack bags for storing in the fridge.
  • I removed dough from bread machine and formed 4 subs and 3 buns (hamburger size). They bake for 25 minutes.
  • There were a couple red peppers and some grape tomatoes in the fridge that were starting to get old. So I put them in the oven on lower and they take a few hours to roast.
  • I then seasoned and wrapped the pork tenderloin with bacon and put in freezer. Ready to cook later in the week.
  • Took 2 cooked chicken breast out of freezer to thaw for use in lunches this week.

Once the chicken was cooked for supper, I carved it and then made soup with the bones. It is still cooking.

I still have biscuits and spaghetti sauce to make.(I will use the roasted peppers and tomatoes in my sauce).

I spent about 3 hours to complete all this and clean up. There are a few things now in the freezer for future weeks as well (meatballs, pasta and muffins).
