Well its Monday again so that means its time for another installment of our Family Meal Plan for the week! How many of you have been joining in and planning your meals for the week? Are you finding it is making our days easier and making dinnertime less stressful?
For those of you who haven’t been making a meal plan, why not? I know that I was resistance to a meal plan for far too long but it really does make my life easier! Plus, it has made me realize that we (meaning me) tend to get in a food rut and I need to branch out a bit AND my kids really like it simple so here we go!
My Family Meal Plan for the week:
Monday: This is a swim night for us so we will be having Tacos–always a family favorite and a hit.
Tuesday: Tuesday afternoons are busy for us so I need a meal that is quick and easy and everyone loves. I have all the ingredients for Chicken Soup in my freezer already so I think I will make the soup in the morning and let it sit during the afternoon while we are out. It should be PERFECT once we get home! I like to keep homemade chicken stock and shredded chicken in the freezer just for soup, do you?
Wednesday: My kids have been asking for Chinese takeout so since this is a swim night for us I think I will just keep it simple and get takeout tonight. My entire family except one kid loves Chinese so this is always a hit and it gives us lots of leftovers for lunch over the next few days.
Thursday: For the past three weeks I have put Cheesy Chicken Roll Ups on the meal plan and I haven’t gotten a chance to make them yet–something has always come up and I haven’t had time. This week I really am going to do it! I’ll share the recipe for this family favorite once I get it made 🙂
Friday: Pizza, Pizza, Pizza…the only question is round or square?
Saturday: I was inspired by a friends meal plan last week so I am planning on doing Sausage and Peppers in the Crockpot. We will be out at a Fall event all day so this will be a great meal to come home to.
