I am joining Menu Plan Monday hosted by Org Junkie and What’s for Dinner? Menu Planning Linkup hosted by Jill Conyers and Mommy Run Fast this week to share what we’re eating. The only topic I like to chat about as much as books is food!
Last week I made the Butternut Squash pasta without the bacon to make it meat free and apparently that was a huge mistake. My boys did not enjoy the healthified mac and cheese and it was a running joke all week how much they did NOT like it. Ugh, note to self, NEVER omit the bacon. I didn’t get to about half of last week’s menu plan so it appears again this week. Sometimes my best-laid plans are foiled like that but that’s ok, meal plans are flexible.
This Week’s Menu Plan:
This week my youngest is off getting spoiled by grandparents which leaves my days free to concentrate on house to-dos until the big kids come home from school. I’ll be undertaking clearing out the garage so easy crockpot meals will be the way to help me get dinner on the table without too much time in the kitchen.
We were doing clutter clearing today so just had leftovers and ordered pizza.
Soft tacos, taco salad, rice and beans
Crockpot Tortellini Soup and grilled sandwiches
Bhel Puri – one of my favorite Indian dishes which is really just a snack in India. With puffed rice, crunchy sev, boiled potatoes, tomato, onion and sweet or mint chutney, it’s a delicious, light vegetarian meal. I have not made it before but all that’s needed is to boil potatoes and chop veggies and it’s easy to toss together and eat cold.
Easy Sausage Burritos from Raining Hot Coupons. I have yet to find a method for reheating frozen egg that my boys like. I am going to try Sarah’s method of wrapping in plastic wrap then aluminum foil and see if it heats up well. I’d love to make ahead burritos or egg muffins for quick breakfasts. If you’ve been around my blog or social media, you know I am NOT a morning person.
I created a couple weekly planner printables to incorporate my menu plans into my week. Check them out and download for free if it will help you with your weekly goal and menu planning.
What’s on your menu plan for this week? What freeze ahead or crockpot meals does your family enjoy?
