This week’s dinner menu plan is all about using things up! I’ve got some things in the freezer and refrigerator that are just taking up space and need to be used so I’m incorporating them into our dinners. Plus, I’ve got a few evening meetings this week so between that and the kids’ activities, I need things that will keep dinner time easy but still good for us.
In my never ending quest to find breakfast options my family liked, over the weekend I made some double chocolate banana bread and whole wheat banana bread. These have both long been family favorites but I finally took pictures so they’ll be coming to the blog in the coming weeks. Be sure to SIGN UP HERE so you’ll know when they are there. (Plus, you’ll receive a FREE meal planning printable!) What are some of your favorite breakfast ideas for busy mornings?
Ok, now on to this week’s Weekly Menu Plan for dinner:
Monday: Leftovers–we ended up with a lot of leftovers from the weekend somehow so I just wanted to keep things simple and clean out the refrigerator. No big Labor Day Plans for us.
Tuesday: Chicken Enchiladas and Spanish Rice Skillet (coming to the blog on Sunday). This seems like a lot but I’m making extras so some can be taken to school in lunches. Plus, we’ll have sliced avocados and garden salad.
Wednesday: Slowcooker Brown Sugar Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin plus wild rice pilaf (coming to the blog soon!) and garden salad
Thursday: Old Fashion Meatloaf with twice baked potatoes (from Dream Dinners) plus garden salad
Saturday: Special activity–no cooking for me
Sunday: Creamy Lemon Chicken Piccata (from my Chicken & Poultry Pinterest board–trying a new recipe!)
What’s on your weekly menu plan this week?
