Meal Planning Sunday

Meal Planning Sunday #19

This is the week before Spring Break, we have soccer, baseball, and more soccer practices so I am making easy to prep ahead meals to get dinner on the table a little quicker, but still ensuring we are eating healthy.

Sunday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches. I like serving these with homemade jo-jo’s and a big side salad. I also love making some homemade coleslaw to add to the top of the sandwiches. Do you add coleslaw to the top of your pulled pork sandwiches?

Monday: Burrito bowls using the left over pork.

Tuesday: Taco salad. Instead of meat, I will use black beans. For the taco meat I like using ground turkey. My husband doesn’t mind and cannot really tell the difference and either can my kiddos. I love meals like this because you can customize it. Guy only likes the taco meat with a little tomato and cheese while Maddi likes all the veggies.

Wednesday: BLT’s and a chopped brussel sprout salad with lemon vinaigrette.

Thursday:  Grilled chicken and veggie sandwiches. I will just eat mine sans bun. I like sauteing peppers and onions to serve on top of grilled chicken.

Friday: Pizza Night!!! I love using the Pioneer Woman’s pizza crust recipe.

Saturday: Olive Garden fake-out salad and bread sticks. I love making copy-cat recipes of some of our favorite restaurants that we do not have local. #smalltownproblems

To make dinner a little easier this week I will chop all the veggies for the burrito bowls, sandwiches, and salads ahead of time. I will also cook the taco meat on Sunday. Working ahead like this allows for easier dinners. Also, using meat for two different meals is a time saver as well (pulled pork sandwiches and then burrito bowls the next day).

What is on the menu at your house this week? I hope you have a great Sunday!

    1. Stephanie, that was me last week. I usually meal plan but we had such a busy weekend that I wasn’t able to meal plan or grocery shop…it threw my entire week off! What is on your meal plans this week?

    1. Oh Susan, if you look back, last week I didn’t meal plan at all or grocery shop and it was rough! Hahahaha! I felt like our week was completely thrown off!
