Below is my weekly meal plan for this week for you to use next week. Let me know if you try any of these, if you loved them, loathed them or changed them. **note-there are two templates at the bottom of this blog for you to use as well. A weekly menu chart that you can print out and stick on your fridge and a grocery store template that you can print and check off what you need.
Sunday –Lemon, Herb & Parmesan Crusted Fish – Delicious recipe from BBC’s goodfood. Here is a handy conversion site to change the metrics to US standards. Serving with Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Quinoa Salad.
Monday – 4-Ingredient Crockpot Chicken Tacos: Excellent recipe that I found on Cooking Light’s website. I do, however, make a few adjustments to make it a bit more kid friendly (i.e. not scream inducing spicy). I increase the salsa 1/2 cup and reduce the chili sauce by 1/2 cup. I also squeeze juice from 1/2 a lime and add 1Tbs of Adobo Seasoning. (click for the recipe that I use to make a big batch of adobo seasoning). Serve with corn/flour tortillas and black beans.
Tuesday–Tuna Pasta Salad with Dill & Peas. This wonderful recipe is from Lauren’s Latest. The thing that I love most about this recipe is that it is just as good hot as it is cold. I must point out that you have to love dill in order to truly appreciate the deliciousness of this recipe.
Wednesday–Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf. This AllRecipes recipe is a healthier version of the classic comfort food, meatloaf. A few changes: I substitute BBQ sauce for the hot sauce for the kiddos. I used 1/2 the brown sugar (too sweet-yikes). I like to use a muffin pan vs. a loaf pan. Helps portion it out and prevent crumbling. Serve with Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and steamed fresh green beans.
Thursday–Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue. This is our favorite Slow Cooker BBQ and perfect for night when we have evening baseball games. The best scenario is to serve with cole slow on top but tonight we will keep it simple. Serving on bakery rolls and sweet potatoes fries on the side (frozen Trader Joe’s).
Friday– Take a break, will ya?!
and as always, here is your menu planning template to print out, write your menu and stick on your fridge. It is super cute!!
