Menu Plan Monday!

This is my first time on Menu Plan Monday. Thanks for stopping by! I don’t have links this week because our menu is pretty basic. I’ve explained a bit about my method for planning/cooking below. Hope to see you again next week!

Monday—BBQ chicken
Tuesday—Chicken pasta with vegetables
Wednesday—Sloppy Joes
Thursday—Spaghetti and meatballs
Friday—Meatball sandwiches

Since Emdee and I both work, we try and do most of our cooking or at least the bulk of the prep work for our menus over the weekend. Planning meals that use similar main ingredients is a big help. This week we will be cooking a lot of chicken in the oven, one casserole dish of BBQ chicken and another of “plain” for the pasta dish. We will cook extra pasta and make cold pasta salad to pack as lunch for the week. I will make a double batch of meatballs so there are leftovers from the first night’s spaghetti to make sandwiches. Sloppy Joes is an easy go to filler meal. Over the weekend we tend to finish up any leftovers or cook a meal that we might have skipped for the week. Breakfasts will be fresh fruit, cold cereal and yogurt. (likely with lots of coffee!!)

Have a great week!
