It’s been a few weeks since I’ve gotten a menu plan together and, as always, we’ve paid for it. In the past 3 weeks, we’ve had three houseguests and enjoyed a short vacation, and have had just a whole lot of running around going on. With only three more weeks until summer break and the start of our No Excuses Summer, I’m working hard to get my own daily schedule in place and some bad habits taken care of before the kids are home all day.
A menu plan is always one of the best places to start.
I’m also working on keeping meals a little simpler – we were able to pick up a new barbecue, which will help immensely, and I’m starting to see farm stands pop up with awesome (and cheap!) vegetables. As I always do at the beginning of summer, I’m craving simple and fresh meals.
Fajitas (just dumped on a big salad for me, with corn tortillas for the kids)
Tossed Green Salad
Grilled Chicken, seasoned with Magic Mushroom powder from the Nom Nom Paleo app (which is brilliant, by the way)
Grilled Squash – I have a bit of a glut already and summer isn’t even here yet!
Grilled Sweet Potatoes
All beef, no weird stuff hot dogs
Skirt Steak with Chive Butter (from Make It Paleo)
Red Curry Glazed Chicken Skewers
Roasted Cauliflower (drizzling with coconut oil and my favorite vadouvan spice mix )
White Rice (for the kiddos)
Easy Chicken Cacciatore
Quinoa pasta for the kids
Spaghetti Squash for me
Mom’s Night Off – leftovers or whatever you’re capable of making on you’re own
What’s your plan for this week?
