It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a menu plan. We were traveling a bit and then I was away for the Philadelphia 3 Day 60 mile walk so things have been a bit crazy around here. We still managed to have family dinners but I felt so unorganized without having a plan. Happy to get back into the swing of things this week. A friend came into town to do the 3 day with me and tonight we are celebrating with a nice dinner at home. The rest of the week is going to be pretty normal and now that the weather is getting cooler I plan on making some soups which are always a hit with the family.
REAL FOOD Menu Plan 10.5.15
Tuesday: Breakfast for dinner! Making my favorite Pumpkin Pancakes and serving it with chicken breakfast sausage. We freeze the extras for those busy mornings. I can just take them out of the freezer and put in the oven to warm up, it’s like I made them that morning.
Wednesday: It’s baseball night so I want to keep it easy, the kids get home so late and I want dinner completely ready so they can quickly eat either before they leave or right when they get home. Making Mushroom Barley Soup and serving with crusty bread. This is a great meatless meal or if you want to add chicken or beef you can do that too.
Thursday: Since I will have risotto left over I plan on making a family favorite - Kale and Sausage Risotto
Friday: I have Pork Ragu left over so we are using it to make sandwiches serving it with fries.
Saturday: We are heading out to go apple picking for the day so I want to start dinner before we leave so if we are running late I don’t have to worry about it once we get back. Making slow cooker Chili and serving it with tortilla chips.
Sunday: Roasting a chicken with root vegetables and quinoa
So that’s my menu plan for this week…hope it’s inspired you to think outside the box when feeding your family. Just remember when you are feeling a bit overwhelmed with “life” a little organization goes a long way. Most of these meals can be prepared in less than 30 minutes and some can even be fully cooked within that time. If you are still looking for inspiration head over to my Menu Plans. On Pinterest?
