Menu Plan Monday

Ok so school starts tomorrow.  I tried to just ignore it but denial did not work.  Tomorrow is it!  So Divas, in my best Tommy from the Rugrats voice….”a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do”.

Cough, gag, kick scream…….key the horror music….MENU PLAN.


I found this really neat FREE printable meal planner on Crystal and Comp!  Our weeks go so much smoother and my jeans sure fit better in the waist when we eat at home.  I am soooooo busy, grabbing something while I am out SEEMS easier. Well, it is easier but easy has a price…late nights and elevated BMIs (body mass index).

So, I am being intentional.  Preparation in advance!  Please don’t roll your eyes and think I am Mrs. Goody two shoes…I have not cooked multiple nights in a row in over two months.

Here is my plan this week!

Sunday- Bacon Penne Alfredo, Salad, mixed Fruit Salad

Monday-LEFT OVERS (whoo hoo)

Tuesday-Chicken Sliders, Microwave steamable (so not a word but you get my drift) broccoli, Green Grapes **I will prepare my chicken breasts in advance in the crock pot (For frozen chicken breasts, arrange in crock pot, add 1/2 cup chicken broth or water, cover, and cook on low for 8-9 hours, rearranging once during cooking time.)

Wednesday-Slow Cooker Tex Mex Round Steak


Friday-Barbecue Chicken Pizza (Using the same pre made Chicken from Tuesday)

Saturday–Mama Needs a break!

So this is the plan and I am standing firm in faith that God will give me the “want to” to follow through!

“Spectacular achievement is always preceded by spectacular preparation.”-Robert Schuller

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17
