Menu Plan Monday

Linking up with Menu Plan Monday on Org Junkie
I love the evenings when I can curl up on the couch with my Macbook and blog and watch TV. I rarely actually watch TV, but I am all about the award shows. So I am writing this while enjoying seeing everyones gorgeous dresses and writing down my next movie choice based on who wins. 

This week I will be subbing on Wednesday and Friday. I love subbing Fridays, any day that is jean day is a great day in my book. I'm telling you that Chicken Gloria is not meant to be cooked on the weekend, so I moved it to a Monday night dinner so that I can actually get it cooked and enjoyed. We are always so busy on the weekend. I did however make that pizza dough that I was supposed to make on Wednesday on Saturday for lunch. It was supposed a copy cat of Papa Johns and was fast and delicious!

Breakfast Ideas: 

I'm loving avocados. I literally ate two yesterday for lunch--God help us. They are probably one of my favorite foods. That along with olives, pickles, cheese...and I would probably eat them all together. My breakfast generally always involves a granola yogurt and coffee. Once I lay Bennett down for his morning nap, I heat up a waffle and call it "an extension" of breakfast. I have a few avocados that were going to be made up for Bennett and put in freezer until I realized I have so much food in there, that I should just eat them. Check out my Pinterest for more Breakfast ideas!

My Weekly Meal Plan

As always you can check out all of these meals below through their links, or through my Plan to Eat Recipe Book. This really is a great way to make your list, and meal plan for the next week. 

Monday- Chicken Gloria- Update: Absolutely delicious! Sauce made a bunch, maybe make some more chicken for leftovers? 
Tuesday- One Pot Zucchini Mushroom PastaUpdate: OOPS, making next week!
Wednesday-Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwich Update: Great, but way way too hot for me! I couldn't even finish half of it! I will definitely use a more mild sauce next time!
Thursday- Bacon Cheeseburger Wraps Update: This reminded me a LOT of the chimichangas. They were really good. I actually made them on the stove top like the bean burritos I made a couple weeks ago. The hardest part was unrolling and stuffing with lettuce and other toppings. 
Friday-Slow Cooker Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice Update: Oh boy, this made a bunch. We ended up having so much leftover so we had it as our sides for everything that week. The rice kind of got mushy on the bottom and didn't have very many seasonings to it at all. By the end of the week I couldn't stomach it anymore. 
Saturday- Date Night
Sunday- Melt in Your Mouth Chicken Update: I've had this before, but my little sister loves it so I invited my family over and we enjoyed it together. It was just as great as I remembered!

  1. I love your meal choices. I meal plan on Fridays for the next week, but since having kids my meals have become quite simple. I look forward to cooking more elaborate meals in the future! ;) Have a great day!

  2. Mmmm... Papa John's pizza is my favorite, so I might have to give that dough recipe a try! Olives, pickles, and cheese are pretty much staples in my diet too, haha!
