I've been talking to a few different people lately about meal planning, menus, and not knowing what to fix for dinners. It's really easy for me to get stuck in a rut of fixing the same meals all the time. I know how to make them, I know my family likes them, we have the right ingredients/spices already on hand, so that's what I plan on making. And then we end up eating out a lot because whatever I have planned doesn't sound good because we eat it ALL the time.
So I decided to share what I have planned out for us this week, maybe if any of you are like me and looking for some new ideas this might help. Most weeks look very similar to this, sometimes I throw in a new recipe or something, but like I said...I'm kinda in a rut. So if you have any awesome recipes to share or family favorites pass them on :)
Lunch - Cobb Salads. The girls will probably have a sweet potato, grapes, and cheese roll ups.
Dinner - Grilled Salmon, Penne with sauteed Green Beans, Cherry Tomatoes and Parmesan Cheese.
Lunch - Tuna Salad Sandwiches, Chips, and Carrots
Dinner - BBQ Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Corn
Lunch - PB and J's, Apple Slices, Broccoli (raw)
Dinner- Enchiladas (we usually do chicken but this time it''' be beef and bean)
Lunch - Toasted Ham and Provolone Sandwiches (we sprinkle Little Caesar's zap pack spices on them, try it! It's very yummy!) with Pretzels and Grapes.
Dinner - Spaghetti and Green Beans
Lunch - Leftover Enchiladas or salads
Dinner - Mediterranean Chicken, Brown Rice and Peas
(I've been making this for a few years, it's a recipe I found on Kraft's website. We really like it and it's easy to make. Here's the link if you want to try it out.
