My weekly meal plan has tons of great dinner ideas for picky eaters and busy weeknights!
Hey, friends! Hey!
I hope that you are enjoying your weekend! My allergies and sinuses have been going absolutely HAYWIRE with the season change, so I’m all hopped up on Sudafed 90% of the time. Sudafed = ALLLL THE EXCLAMATION POINTS (is this how people feel on coffee? No wonder it’s so popular! Wow, I need something to clean!) but I’m going to try to tone it down for the sake of not driving you all crazy.
I’ve got some new-to-me recipes on this week’s plan that I am so excited to try! I’m doing low carb right now, but I save the little bit of carbs I allow myself every day for dinner. So I still cook normal meals for my family, but I always make a large green salad or some roasted veggies for myself. I have a large serving of the salad/veggies and then a small portion of whatever I made. It’s the easiest way and it works for everyone.
Also, can I just say how GREAT I feel whenever I go low carb? So much less bloated and tired. But for whatever reason (probably because they’re easy), I always go back to my carb-loading ways eventually. Someone hide the bread from me, please?
As always, be sure to print out a grocery list! Everything you need for the week is already filled out for you. Just print and head to the store.
Here’s what we are having this week:
Monday: Smothered Baked Chicken Burritos
How good do these look? I love that the meat cooks in the slow cooker all day — it makes for a really easy meal.
Tuesday: Ham and Swiss Stromboli
Such an easy meal that the whole family loves! I can hardly get Lucy to eat dinner EVER, but even she goes for this.
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Deep Dish Pizza
As soon as I saw this recipe on Sommer’s site, I knew I HAD to try it! Pizza in a slow cooker? And the outside of the crust gets crispy! So excited to see how it turns out.
Thursday: Chicken Gnocchi Soup
I love LOVE this soup SO much. Also — it’s the only way any of the kids will eat spinach!
I am dying to try these! Jon David is crazy about bacon and anything spicy, so I’m hoping they will be a hit with him!
That’s it for this week! Have a great weekend!
