Meal Plan Monday – April 2 – 15

By default I penciled in hearty, winter comfort foods for the next couple of weeks. I’m hoping the weather keeps warming and we make the transition to grilling…all.the.time very soon. This meal plan consists of a few recipes I snagged from friends who shared their families liked them, so I’m sure my family will too. They’re not picky, so I mix it up on them often.

My slow cooker is getting it’s workout the next couple of weeks. Those things are amazing. Here’s what we’re eating the next two weeks.

Sunday  – Chicken Quesadillas + black bean & corn salad

Monday  – Parmesan Chicken Roll-Ups from Written Reality + green beans + fruit salad

Tuesday – Chicken Fried Rice from a Pinch of Healthy + applesauce

Wednesday – Southwest Chicken Salad

Ingredients: grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, black beans, corn, tortilla strips, shredded cheddar, ranch + BBQ.

Instructions:

  • Chop up lettuce and top with black beans, corn, tortilla strips, chicken and cheese.
  • Mix together ranch and BBQ sauce and use as dressing
  • To make this really quick, use a bag of pre-grilled chicken breast strips.

Thursday – Grilled cheese + tomato soup + salad

Friday – Kitchen’s Closed 🙂

Saturday – Chicken & Veggie Kabobs + parmesan noodles

I love to marinate our peppers, onions and chicken in balsamic vinaigrette for a few hours before grilling.

  1. Dump all ingredients except noodles into crockpot and mix until combined.
  2. Cook 2 ½ hours on high or 5 hours on low.
  3. 20 minutes before ready to eat, cook noodles according to package. If you want, add frozen peas to boiling noodle water for the last 5 minutes of boiling time.
  4. Drain noodles & peas and dump in crockpot. Combine and serve.
