  • Menu Plan Monday: Keeping it simple

    I expect this to be a crazy week, so I am looking to keep things really simple, with meals that don’t require a lot of prep work and are very familiar. Is the end of every school year this insane?

    Monday – Chicken Tacos with the fixings

    Tuesday – Meatballs Heroes & Sweet Potato Fries

    Wednesday – Pizza & Salad

    Thursday – Sardine & Cauliflower Pasta

    Friday – Pan Bagnat & Sauteed Green Beans

    Saturday – Breakfast (pancakes/waffles, eggs, sausage, fruit)

    Sunday – Dinner Out

    See more weekly menus at I’m an Organizing Junkie.

      This week I'm trying to go meatless and focus more on raw foods, but chicken tacos sound tempting.

    2. Chief Family Officer says:

      @20 & Engaged – I love your goals. I think my husband would rebel if we went meatless, though I do try to plan one or two meatless meals during the week (cheese pizza is a total standby). Thanks for reminding me that I have to get the chicken in to the slow cooker!
