Happy Monday Friends!!!

Sorry this post is a little late~I usually post the night before and schedule it to go live at 1AM, but I was watching a movie with my hubby :)
You can read how I plan my menu here.

Meal 1:

Veggie Calzones

(since this recipe is full of veggies I just served with some spaghetti sauce on top and some shredded cheese)

*this recipe makes 6 calzones, so this is my big meal to use as leftovers*

Meal 2:

1 lb ground turkey breast (or ground beef if you prefer)
1/4 C minced fresh flat leaf parsley
1 T minced red onion

Brown Rice

combine turkey, parsley, onion, S&P in medium bowl; form 16 (1 1/2 inch) meatballs.
Spray nonstick skillet with nonstick spray; set over med-high heat; add meatballs; brown turning, 6-8 min. Reduce heat. Cover cook until cooked through, shaking pan constantly 3-5 min.. set aside. Add water to skillet; increase heat and cook, scraping up browned bits with spoon, until most of the liquid is evaporated. add tomatoes and cook until softened, about 2 min. stir in meatballs. Serve over brown rice. add some chopped parsley to top for garnish.
