These last few weeks of summer have taken a toll on my meal planning routine. The unpredictability of our summer schedule has caused me to lose sight of what works for my family. I NEED a good meal plan to avoid the drive through or pizza delivery man. So today, it’s back to the basics. Here’s what we plan on…what we WILL be eating this week! I’ve noted where our kids will eat something other than what I prepare for my husband and me. Almost always, my children know they are expected to eat what is served to them but occasionally I do make an exception!
Monday: Zucchini “pizzas” with homemade meatballs and salad. Will serve whole wheat pasta for the kids.
Tuesday: Tilapia, roasted red potatoes, green beans
Wednesday: Whole chicken, steamed broccoli and rolls
Thursday: Thai Chicken Salad with Spicy Peanut Sauce from My Kitchen Escapades
Looks like a perfect recipe to use the leftover chicken from Wednesday!
Kids will have chicken, rice and leftover veggies
Friday: Swim Team Party- dinner provided
Saturday: BLTs with corn on the cob
Lunch and Snack Ideas
Quinoa pizza bites – Still trying to get the kiddos on board with some quinoa! Anyone have kid approved recipe?
Peanut butter French toast– Will try out this recipe with some vanilla Shakeology
Homemade granola to use in yogurt & fruit parfaits
Almond butter and jelly rollups on Flatout Breads- These were a sample at Costco and my kids are OBSESSED!
Triple chocolate muffins– a tried and true family favorite!
Lettuce wraps- a quick and easy lunch
3 ingredient Peanut butter/Pumpkin Dog treats– Mama’s got another mouth who needs some wholesome snacks!
What is on your meal plan for this week? I’m always searching for great family friendly recipes!
