Last week I shared some ramblings about my weekly chore and challenge of meal planning. I know so many of you are in the same arena, trying to prepare nutritious weeknight meals that already before your kids fill up on after school snacks.
I had some good feedback from my last post, so I am going to continue to share my meal plan for the upcoming week so that you might get some inspirations - or better yet, maybe you can give me some good ideas! (Thank you to those of you who posted comments or sent me an email last week!)
Here we go:
Monday: Steak and Chicken Sheet Pan Fajitas with Spanish Rice
(inspired from Jo's comment on my last post and from this recipe feature that I wrote for Minnesota Parent magazine last April)
need: peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, steak, Spanish rice mix
Tuesday: Meatloaf Muffins, Mashed Potatoes & Garden Green Beans
I am going to try an adaption of this highly rated recipe this week. Using some of the herbs that I have dried and stored from our summer garden and some store bought pork/hamburger grind and some venison
need: carrots, onion, pork/beef grind, saltines, potatoes
Wednesday: Pasta Bar
Twisting a recommendation for "pasta boats" from Jo's comment on my last post to a pasta bar idea.
need: ham, mushrooms, bacon, broccoli, chicken, red sauce, alfredo sauce, broccoli, parmesan cheese, pesto, noodles
Thursday: Crescent Bacon Breakfast Ring
Using up eggs is always a great option when we have laying hens. I am going to try this recipe this week: https://www.jocooks.com/recipes/crescent-bacon-breakfast-ring/
I have a great go-t0 recipe for homemade crescent dough from this book that I will use for the dough.
need: eggs, bacon, green onions, peppers, cheese, crescent dough
Friday: Mini Sub Sandwiches
need: Sarah Lee Center Cut Hoagie Rolls, lunch meat, cheese, lettuce, and extras
I would love to hear what you are cooking too!

Have a great week!
