Menu Plan Monday

We have a fairly busy week so I am glad I took the time to sit down and come up with a meal plan to limit the chaos of meal time at least! As usual when I make a meal plan I have linked up over at Organizing Junkie as part of Menu Plan Monday

Monday - Normally I take the time to cook us a nice meal without convenience items but on busy nights like tonight we need something fast and easy. We found Johnny's potato/cheddar powder soup mix at Costco recently and really liked it.  Grilled cheese will be made for the picky child eater. 

Tuesday- Taco night

Wednesday- My go to slow cooker dinner is putting a chicken in to cook all day. I plan to serve some lemon roasted microwave potatoes, cooked carrots and leftover buns with it. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/151802/lauras-lemon-roasted-potatoes/

Thursday- We will use the leftover chicken from Wednesday night to make salads. We have spinach in the fridge and in addition to the chicken will add in cucumbers, peppers, dried cranberries. I like adding some mushrooms to mine and have some feta cheese in the fridge so will throw some of that in too. I like that each member of the family can customize their salad as I simply put the spinach out with bowls of cut up vegetables/toppings. 

Friday- Like I mentioned above we usually eat mostly home cooked meals.  Sure we at times rely on things like Annie's boxed Mac and Cheese for lunch but I am very happy to have found this kid pleasing homemade mac and cheese recipe from Living Well Mom. It is definitely a keeper! http://livingwellmom.com/2012/05/easy-kid-friendly-macaroni-n-cheese-recipe/
