So it’s that day again. The day when I must sit down and plan what we are going to eat. We have unusual plans this weekend so this week will stop at Thursday. We will be eating at home every meal and it’s me and 3 kids on spring break. Woot. Here’s our meals.
Monday Lunch fend for yourselves Meatless Monday Vegetable Soup, biscuits
Tuesday Lunch Eat roast or chili out of fridge Dinner Baked BBQ Chicken legs, salad, corn
Wednesday Lunch Eat spare ribs leftovers Dinner Crockpot Pork Roast, green beans from last years garden, broccoli
Thursday Lunch Sandwiches Dinner Spaghetti, salad, corn, bread
The other days we’ll be hanging with friends and having fun with family. Woot. I’m so grateful for Spring Break. My kids played flashlight tag at 8 pm last night in ackets. Thank you for warmer weather! What’s on your menu this week?
Nothing gets my week started off better then writing out what we will be having all week. Planning dinner helps me not eat takeout. Take out is so bad for you. My goal is to really cut back on the amount of take out we eat. I’m doing ok so far but it’s only Monday! lol
Monday Meatless Monday Big Salad with toasted garlic bread
Tuesday Roast, potatoes, carrots, onion in the crockpot
Wednesday Slow cooker taco soup (I’ll substitute ground turkey for ground beef) and artisan bread
Thursday Chicken nuggets, french fries, salad (don’t judge haha)
Friday Homemade veggie pizza
Saturday Pork roast in the smoker for smoked bbq sandwiches, baked beans
Sunday hamburgers on the grill, chips
Getting my menus planned helps my week go so much smoother. It means I don’t have to think about dinner. I’ve already gone through my cabinets and fridge and know what I can and can not make. So let’s get those menus planned.
Monday~Big salad night. We usually eat Meatless on Monday so we’ll be eating a big salad made with spinach, lettuce, carrots, celery, hard boiled eggs and dried cranberries if wanted.
Tuesday~Slow Cooker Potato Soup so yummy!
Wednesday~Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore
Thursday~Tacos Thursdays with guacamole I need to set out my avocados so they are ripe by then.
Friday~Polish Sausage and Cabbage
Sunday~Spaghetti, salad, garlic bread
This one little thing I do all week helps keep me on track so much. Even if no one reads this it helps me to know what I’m making all week. Here’s my list of meals.
Monday~Meatless Monday Cranberry Spinach Salad, apples with peanut butter
Tuesday~Shrimp fried rice with mixed veggies
Wednesday~Sticky chicken in the crockpot, roasted asparagus, corn
Thursday~Spaghetti with ground turkey red sauce, broccoli, toasted bread
Friday~Polish Sausage, Cabbage and Potatoes
Saturday~Hamburgers grilled, french fries, fruit salad
Sunday~ Tacos, guacamole, chips and salsa
