Cook Monday-Breakfast All Week

Easy Breakfast Casserole. Cut into servings and take with each morning.


Green Curry Chicken with cauliflower rice. Used 5 small zucchini instead of 3 and 2 medium sweet potatoes instead of 1 large. Squeeze of lime was a nice finishing touch.



Instant Pot Butter Chicken. New favorite. Perfectly balanced dish. Used remainder of chicken thighs (from large 3lb-package) from Tuesday night. Had already diced into bite-sized pieces, which saved time. Used 2 bell peppers instead of 1. Last minute, decided to try Easy Paleo Naan (with coconut flour). I had super old baking soda, but these still turned out exceptionally–little savory pancake/corncake type things with a hint of coconut sweetness. Quick to cook.


Salsa Chicken lettuce wraps and salad bowls. Dinner ready in 20 mins: with the Instant Pot heating up/cooking, shredding the chicken/preparing toppings. Romaine lettuce for wraps. Serve with fresh jalapeno slices, radishes, olives, cilantro, sauteed bell pepper and onion, green and red onion, chopped tomatoes, salsa and Greek yogurt. Our version of taco night. Chips and tortillas are not missed. Can use smaller romaine leaves to make “nachos.”

Asian Chicken Thighs (only cook for 30 mins or less because using boneless skinless) with a simple spinach salad. Great flavor and smell. Would definitely be better with skin-on thighs, but this was still tasty.


Bubble and Squeak. Didn’t love it.


Vegetable Soup. Moving to Tuesday of next week.
