Menu Plan Monday: Week of 1/9-1/15

I did fairly well last week with my menu plan & only had to make a few changes. Sat night we ended up going out for pizza because my daughter had a friend’s birthday party to go to that wasn’t over until 5:30. Right next door to the party place is a yummy brick oven pizzeria that was calling my name. This pregnant mama is weak when it comes to food!!!

The other adjustment we had to make was for Thursday night, where I had planned leftovers. My jambalaya on Wed turned out a little too spicy for the girls so they had leftover tacos that night which left not much for Thursday. Luckily I had ingredients on hand for a quick recipe we have often, Mexican Chicken Casserole. It’s fairly quick and easy and a go-to for our family at least once a month. I will be sure and post this recipe sometime this week!

Here is my plan for this week.

Leftovers/Quick meal- Daddy’s in charge of this one!
I have a Jr. League meeting tonight right after work so I won’t be home to make dinner.

Tasty & Lean Turkey Chili

Tilapia Piccata

Breaded/Baked Chicken Strips
Fried Okra
Mashed potatoes

Leftover Chili/Frito Pie

Dinner out

Whole Wheat Pasta
Spring Salad with Feta Cheese
Garlic Bread

If you haven’t started menu planning, I encourage you to try it. You will find it is such a time saver and sanity saver!
