Menu Plan – Week of December 15

My efforts to add some new recipes the last two weeks have really paid off… they have all been a hit! Luckily, my boys are pretty much willing to try anything I make which is always encouraging. I’m really exciting for this week’s new recipe!

Here’s what I have planned for this week:

Monday: Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers… My new recipe for the week! I found it on Pinterest (again) and it hardly even needs any adjustments for my allergies. I’m using a recipe from She’s the Bross to make what looks like it could be one of the best recipes ever. I can’t wait to try them!

Tuesday: Taco chicken bowls

Wednesday: Ham and broccoli pasta

Thursday: Baked spaghetti and JESSE’S BIRTHDAY! I offered to make him any dinner choice and this was his request, which happens to be one of my favorites too.

Friday: Potato soup

Do you menu plan? I’d love to hear what are you planning for this week?

Menu Plan – Week of December 8

It doesn’t quite feel like Christmastime yet, but it must be because Christmas activities are in full swing starting this week. I’m keeping my menu on the simple side to save room for being busy with all the other activities.

Here’s what I have planned for this week:

Monday: Beans and veggies over rice (pile)

Tuesday: Apple Pork Chops with asparagus

Wednesday: Shepherd’s Pie… My new recipe for this week! I found it on Pinterest, of course, and will need to adapt it for my allergies. I’ve actually never made a shepherd’s pie so I’m eager to try it out. I’m using a recipe from Four Generations One Roof.

Thursday: Ham and broccoli pasta

Friday: Chicken parmesan with veggies

Menu Plan – Week of December 1

Welcome back to menu planning posts!

I’ve been feeling bored with menu planning lately. It seems like we keep rotating the same meals over and over, making it hard for me to find motivation for cooking each night. Also, I’m finding it nearly impossible to make time for blogging these crazy busy days. So… I’m hoping combining the two will make time and excitement for both.

Lately, I’ve been working to find a balance between the strict paleo meals that I feel most healthy eating and the almost-paleo meals that are some of our family’s most favorite. I’m finding that as long as my allergy/rotation diet finds a happy balance I stay feeling good, but it’s so easy to drift into all our favorite casseroles if I’m not intentional about planning ahead. Follow me on Instagram if you’re interested in how our meals turn out!

Here’s what I have planned for this week:

Monday: Baked hamburgers with mashed potatoes and veggies

Tuesday: Baked spaghetti

Wednesday: Chicken taco bowl… My new recipe for this week! I found it on Pinterest, of course, and will need to adapt it for my allergies. I’m quite sure my boys will love it. Recipe from Budget Bytes.

Thursday: Baked ham with broccoli salad

Friday: Leftovers… It will be just me and A for dinner this night.
