The play and jazz concert is over so we are done with those practices but now we move onto spring sports! My older son continues with the Philly Boys Choir with practices in the city 2 nights a week and playing on 1 baseball team and my youngest is playing baseball for 2 teams this year. So our weeknights are not staying calm for long. Practices are underway and games will start soon. To save myself time I’ve started using Amazon Fresh. It’s a great service and I can easily get “almost” everything I need on a weekly basis. As a bonus I don’t even need to be home for them to deliver it. Have you ever tried delivery services before? If so which ones are your favorites?
So here is my weekly plan that I hope is super easy to prepare and a few of the recipes I can even make double batches and freeze extras for other meals.
Real Food Menu Plan for Busy Families 3.27.17
Monday: Trying something new for dinner – Chicken Teriyaki Casserole. I have all the ingredients on hand which saves me money at the grocery store.
Tuesday: It’s been awhile since we’ve had Taco Tuesday, so we will have that using venison meat from the freezer along with salad. If you’re not into tacos you can make salads too, that is what I normally do for myself and the rest of the family eats tacos.
Wednesday: I need a easy weeknight meal and Sloppy Joes never disappoint.
Thursday: My husband and I are out for the evening so the boys and babysitter will order out.
Friday: I’m doing carpool for boys choir so we will not get home until at least 7pm, so leftovers it is!
Saturday: Family dinner with one of my comfort favorites – Meatloaf with all the fixings. Then movie and popcorn.
Sunday: Roasted chicken with potatoes and veggies. I saw this idea using a bunt pan in the oven so I thought I’d give that a try, I’ll let you know how it turns out.
