We had our last wedding to attend of the year over the weekend, when we got back yesterday we both felt "ugh." I have to admit, I have not been practicing all that I preach with my workouts and portions - and well he never really did, but we decided to take the plunge (again) together. That will make cooking EASY this week :)
I went to the store and shopped like I was shopping for just my self, which was nice, and then also getting him a few "goodies"
Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breasts - about 2.5 lbs (that will be around 10 4oz servings, 5 of those being my lunch)
White Fish - 1lb, 4 servings
Frozen Spinach to heat for meals and add to my eggs in the morning
Two dozen eggs - which Ill prlly have to go back and get more!
Frozen squash to add to meals so he doesn't know hes eating it
Microwaveable Broccoli steamer bags
First, I froze half the fish and two chicken breasts - leaving one part of fish in the fridge for Tuesday and prepping and baking the rest of the chicken. I split the chicken into two baking dishes - one spicy with cayenne pepper and one just peppered with chopped sweet bell peppers.
For the sweet potatoes, I cleaned them up and divided them into 5 separate servings (one for each lunch for me) - wrapped them in foil and baked for an hour on 375.
Now that the chicken and the sweet potatoes are done, lunch is also. I will pre-pack the chicken and potatoes into Tupperware and grab a bag of broccoli when I am on my way out the door. I usually keep three of the meals in the fridge and the last two in the freezer and take them out the night before. :)
Rough Dinner Menu This week:
Monday - 1 Breast of the "spicy" chicken on top of a salad with avocado, lemon, onions and balsamic vinegar - maybe I'll whip up some Veggie soup too!

Wednesday - Thaw frozen chicken, stuffed with tofu-ricotta (see lasagna post) and homemade red sauce, steamed veggies/spinach
Thursday - Bison Burgers
Friday - peppered chicken breasts with salad for me, pasta and red sauce for him
