We are on Spring Break this week. We are keeping it local but planning to do some fun day trips into the city, make plans to hang with some friends and then celebrate Easter with family. The boys have now started baseball so every night is filled with either baseball or lacrosse practice, which make meal time a little more tricky. My plan is to keep it simple and do some crock pot dinners that I can prepare in the morning so I don’t have to worry about making dinner after being gone throughout the day.
How do you handle meal times once your kids are in sports or after school activities every night?
REAL FOOD Weekly Menu Plan
Monday: My son has been dying for burgers on the grill which I will serve with pasta salad.
Tuesday: It’s suppose to rain all day and frankly I am pretty happy about that! Making one of our favorites – Chicken Tortilla Soup made in the crock pot.
Wednesday: Pulled Pork in the crock pot to make sandwiches, served with cole slaw.
Thursday: Trying something new for dinner - Buffalo Chicken Pasta made in the crock pot.
Friday: Getting the kids in the kitchen making homemade Pizzas
Saturday: We are headed into the city for the Phillies game so dinner will be in the city with the kids.
Sunday: It’s Easter Sunday so we will be heading to Nana’s house for dinner.
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?
