  • Menu Plan Monday: Easy meals this week

    I am hoping to get a lot done around the house this week, so I’m planning a week of easy meals:

    Monday – Shredded Barbeque Beef (just combine a roast and some BBQ sauce in the slow cooker), sauteed green beans, cream biscuits

    Tuesday – Pizza (using artisan bread dough), Salad

    Wednesday – Roast chicken with pita bread and white bean spread, steamed broccoli

    Thursday – Tuna Pasta Salad (which I didn’t get to last week)

    Friday – Chicken Cobb Salad

    Saturday – Leftovers

    Sunday – Dinner out


    1. Just a quick note to say thanks for sharing your menu plans. It is nice to see what other people are doing, get ideas and inspiration.

      I always feel so overwhelmed trying to menu plan for the week, but when I see your list, it seems more do-able. Thanks!

      Aw, thanks, Heidi! I hope your week is nice and easy!
