Menu Plan Monday–Week of April 15

I don’t know what happened to my earlier post.  If you stopped by earlier to a ‘page not found’, I apologize.

Last week my menu got turned upside down.  I can’t pinpoint everything that went wrong but I did learn one lesson.  While I’m solo-parenting, my meals have to be nearly ready to go or I will opt for something requiring less work like frozen popcorn chicken or picking up fast-food on our way home from a day out.  So I spent this weekend doing some prep work–cooking & dicing a couple chicken breasts, making & rolling meatballs (which I froze), making barbecue sauce for the kids’ favorite barbecue chicken.

Popcorn chicken, salad, applesauce
Friend’s house for dinner

Leftovers or sandwiches
Chick-Fil-A Kids’ Night

Packed lunch (sandwiches, carrots, pretzels)
Crockpot marinara & meatballs (new recipe from Cook’s Country)

Grilled pizzas
BBQ chicken sliders

Hamburgers on the grill, potato packet, fruit & veggie tray

Lime chicken burritos
Steaks on the grill, baked potatoes, salad

Garlic chicken pasta salad

    • We had the spaghetti sauce but, until I started putting it together, I didn’t realize I didn’t have any onions! Ooops. So the sauce was eh…but I want to try it again WITH the onions this time! LOL
