Meal Plan Monday!
This post was supposed to go up yesterday but didn't make it. I decided I would start posting my weekly meal plans in hopes of inspiring/helping other moms with the daily chore of making meals. For me with a baby and a toddler it has to be something quick, usually 30 min or less, and something the toddler will eat. I do usually have something for him though on night where we're having steak or something he can't/won't eat but he's usually pretty good. I don't assign a meal to each day I just like to pick as I go along and I also don't cook something new every night. If I know I'm making something that'll last 2 days then we'll eat it the next day for dinner. I'll include the recipes or the sources where possible. I also don't plan breakfasts/lunches ahead of time though I probably should. So here's this weeks dinners:
Tacos - using Old El Paso taco kit
One Pot Beef and Rice Skillet
Chicken Nuggets - from a box and with veggies and pasta side dish
Pasta with homemade sauce from the freezer
Chili Sauced Pineapple Pork - from a cookbook I have
Tortellini with jarred pasta sauce
I also love using my crock pot because hubby is home on the mornings and can help out or watch the kids while I start dinner.
