Meal Plan: December 14- December 20

Every week we make a meal plan for the week ahead. The plan accounts for 5 breakfasts, 4 lunches (plus fruit), 4 snacks, and 5 dinners each for the two of us. Lunches are typically a double batch of whatever the recipe calls for. We make the lunches and do other prep work on Sunday. Nearly all items are purchased from either our local farmers market or Whole Foods. We live in Cincinnati, OH.

December 14- December 20

It feels odd writing this post on a Tuesday, but we spent the weekend in Denver watching my sister get married! Hooray! It was so much fun and involved some killer food and drinks. Pretty much perfect.

Since Christmas is quickly approaching (!), we’ve included some more splurge type of meals, and I’m sure we’ll do the same next week as well. The holidays are made for enjoying great meals.

I’ve been wanting to try the pho recipe below for a while, so I’m hoping it’s as good as I imagine! If anyone knows of a foolproof pho recipe (chicken or beef), please pass it along. I’m willing to try as many recipes as it takes to find the perfect one.

Total cost: Roughly $155 (we had to restock a lot of basics too. Blast)

Average cost per meal per person, with snacks tucked into the mix: $5.53
