What’s Cooking and Meal Prep

I did a little mid week meal prepping last night.


Salad in a jar with cucumber, tomato, mushroom, dried cranberries, romaine lettuce, sunflower seeds and a tiny bit of sharp cheddar.  The dressing is homemade vinaigrette.

Salad in a jar is all about layering the ingredients to help them stay fresh and keep them from getting soggy.

Salad dressing on the bottom, then layer ingredients that are more tolerant to the dressing like cucumber and cherry tomatoes, then layer the more tender ingredients as you go up the jar like the lettuce and cheese.

Salad in a jar will stay fresh in the fridge for a good five days which makes it a great choice for weekly meal prepping.

This was last nights dinner.


Our farm raised roasted pork loin with roasted carrots and salad with apples, walnuts and the homemade vinaigrette.

It was delicious.

What’s cooking for you?  Are you doing any weekly meal planning and prepping?

Till next time,
