Menu Plan Monday
I would say Menu Plan Monday was a semi-success last week! There were two nights that were impossible to complete the planned dinner, but we rolled with it.
Some notes on last weeks plan:
I ended up making this amazing Meatloaf on Sunday. My dad came to town Sunday evening for work, so it was nice to sit down and have a family meal with him.
I would say the Turkey Nachos were the biggest hit! I made two pans, one for the kids that just consisted of chips, cheese, turkey, and I added beans. Josh and I's had chips, cheese, turkey, tomatoes, black olives, and jalapenos. This was SO easy!
The Green Beans, Chicken & Potatoes was a success also! Again, SO easy and the kids actually ate it. I cut way back on the butter!
This week the menu consists of....
Monday: Josh works late, and seeing as our diets don't like us to eat so late, he is usually on his own, or will take Sunday Leftovers. I let the kids pick Monday Menu since it is just usually them eating. I will sit with them but will make myself a salad.
Crescent Cheese Dogs
Shells and Cheese
Tuesday: Our only evening without an activity!
Bacon Bow Tie Pasta
Garlic Cheese Bread
I am going with the "light" version which uses Turkey Bacon, reduced fat cream cheese, and reduced fat milk.
Wednesday: Soccer AND Curriculum Night = Crockpot Meal!!
Crockpot BBQ Chicken
Corn on the Cob
We will be shredding and eating as sandwiches.
Thursday: Gymnastics and Baseball Night! I plan to have the "Breakfast for Dinner" that I did not get to last week :)
French Toast Bake
Friday: Too much going on for there to be a plan for Friday!
I hope everyone has a great week! If you try any of these recipes, please feel free to share your feedback in the comments section!
