Weekly meal plan #5 (Feb. 13-19)

Between the chowder and spaghetti squash I made last week and the lentil soup I made the weekend before, my fridge has been overflowing with leftovers. I even froze some of the soup for future lunches so it wouldn’t go to waste. This week, I don’t want to make anything that will produce leftovers, so that’s how I designed my meal plan. The only thing that should give me leftovers is the pizza. I may have some chicken tikka masala left, but that won’t last long around here since it was on my husband’s request list.

Bonus: This week’s meal plan also has a mini-recipe for quick, easy steak tacos with garlic cream sauce!
