Menu Plan Monday - 4/23 - 4/29



What a crazy week we just finished!  Lots of meals on the go (but we behaved and only ate out once, unless you count eating at my sister's).  Thankfully I had planned ahead and that I had planned simple meals throughout the week. I did make one adjustment to last week's plan.  I decided that for this week's picnic (our weekly picnic at the soccer field just before practice) I wanted to have Pioneer Woman's Beef Noodle Bowl (I'll be sharing about our experience with that recipe tomorrow).  But I had to have a cooked steak for that.  So Sunday night instead of hamburgers on the grill, we grilled some steaks after Church.  I put some potatoes in the crockpot before Church so it was simple to put together.

This week is looking to be a bit calmer.  Here's what my husband and I came up with for our dinner plans.

Monday - Beef Noodle Bowl with zucchini chips

     The zucchini chips is a new recipe to see if my kids will eat zucchini

Tuesday - Grilled Chicken with Quinoa and Black Bean Salad
     We grilled the chicken right after the steaks on Sunday night - cooking ahead saves time later!  I ordered Quinoa with my latest Shelf Reliance Q shipment.  It is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday and I can't wait to try this new grain!

Wednesday - Fettucini Alfredo with Sauteed Yellow Squash


Thursday - Italian Pork Chops with Oven Roasted Potatoes


Friday - Tacos

Saturday - French Toast (Morgan's request)

Sunday - Tator Tot Casserole

What's on your menu?  Are you using any THRIVE this week?
