Meal Plan Monday

We used to do this on my other BMB with my first son. Helped plan ahead and keep us making healthy meals. Also was great to get new ideas from one another. Play along if you are interested! I start with Sundays instead of Mondays because I usually grocery shop on Sundays---but start on whatever day works best for you. 

Sunday: Salmon, rice and crescent rolls
Monday: Cheesy Broccoli Orzo with smoke sausage
Tuesday: Burgers and homemade fries
Wednesday: Spaghetti and salad
Thursday: Shrimp (fish sticks for DS1) and mac and cheese or rice again
Friday: Pizza

  • When the hell do you ladies find time to cook?
    Hahaha! I find time to cook because if I didn't cook we would starve.DH can't cook his way out of a paper bag... DH takes DS while I cook dinner. We both like to eat so I make time :)
  • I love this! I'm always looking for new ideas! 

    Sunday: pork chops, corn on the cob, and pretzel rolls
    Monday: beef tacos with homemade pico
    Tuesday: chicken breast with baked sweet potatoes 
    Wednesday: ribs on the grill, with baked beans 
    Thursday: burgers with homemade fries
    Friday: order in or eat out
    Saturday: slow cooker veggie beef stew and french bread
  • When the hell do you ladies find time to cook?
    If I didn't plan meals no one would eat in my house lol. With working I have one shot to grocery shop each week. I don't have time to stop on the way home. I try to cook stuff on the weekends and I do a lot of meal prep (cutting up veggies, laying out pans I will need to cook, etc) the night before or early in the morning.

  • You ladies are impressive! I can barely whip together a pb&j for myself during the day. My babe is a good babe too, loves to lay in his play yard and doesn't cry much, so really...when do you find the time? After the baby goes to bed? I need to get it together! 
  • I just pull her swing into the kitchen with me. She sits and plays with her crinkle book, I talk to her and keep her interactive so she doesn't lose her cool about being alone. 

    Or I'll slowly throw together a casserole throughout the day as I have time, and I'll chuck it in the oven whenever.

    My in-laws are here for a few days, and it's incredible how much we get done with 2 extra sets of baby-watching hands!
  • I usually try to prep while he is napping. Sometimes I put his mammas and pappas chair on the counter with the toy tray on and just pretend I'm in a cooking show telling him everything I am doing. He thinks it's pretty fun! ;)
  • @JanuarysBaby1 here ya go! Delicious, and probably every kind of fattening and unhealthy... but so worth it. Easy, too!

    2 c. shredded cooked chicken1 c. shredded cheese (or more if you are a cheese hound)1 can cream of chicken soup1/2 cup milk1/2 cup sour cream1 can Ro-tel tomatoes (canned tomatoes with jalepenos-mild)1/2 packet taco seasoning (or more- to taste)Bag of regular nacho cheese doritosDirections
    Pre-heat oven to 350-f degrees.In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except doritos.In a greased 2 qt baking dish, put a layer of crushed doritos (about 2 cups), then a layer of the chicken mixture. Repeat once more, ending with a layer of chicken mixture. Top with more shredded cheese, cover, and bake for 30-35 minutes, till bubbling hot.
  • @BarrettJ89 thank you! Can't wait to try it!
