Menu Plan Monday: Tired of Being Tired

I am officially tired of winter. More than that, my SAD is kicking in hard, despite 8-12,000 IU of Vitamin D nightly. I started writing this post on Sunday, had the draft, found the links to the pretty recipes (need to remember to do that again for next week), and here it is Wednesday, and I am dragging ass. You can check out my Fitbit stats if you don't believe me.


That sloth from Zootopia is moving faster than me this week. Not only am I moving slowly, but I'm also thinking slowly. I have enough energy to do the bare minimum, and even that's a stretch.

But anyways, here are the beautiful things I shall be cooking and inhaling before passing out each night this week.

Menu Plan Monday

Cherry Tomato Chicken Parmesan with Zucchini and Basil 

Cherry Tomato Chicken Parmesan
From the Plated site for this recipe

Cod en Papillote with Broccoli, Quinoa, and Chimichurri 

(so much more elegant than calling it Packet Fish with Chimichurri Sauce)

There was some quinoa left over, excellent breakfast mixed with blueberries and coconut cream. I was too tired to post on Instagram, so you dear blog reader, get the SOOC, unedited food picture.

Skillet Roast Chicken with Caramelized Fennel and Potatoes

Apparently, I tweeted while cooking, inhaled dinner, cleaned up, and passed out. Sorry, no #Platedpic of this meal.

Steak Bulgogi with Pickled Radish and Cheesy Corn

I am so very grateful that Plated is delivered on Sunday. We would be eating so much takeout this week, or not eating at all if I wasn't using this service. And hey, I have 3 4 more free weeks to give away.
