Menu Plan Monday: 05.21.12

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
Carrot sticks

Skirt Steak with Chive Butter (from Make It Paleo)
Steamed Broccoli
Green Salad

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?

  1. I made your chicken cacciatore last night, it was amazing! I blended the sauce before adding the chicken as my family doesn’t like “chunky” things. Hubby and 2 of my boys ate it (altho the 5yo said he didn’t like it, yet didn’t complain to eat his required bites). The 3rd boy (oldest) doesn’t like sauce at all so I didn’t even try. What a way to get some great veggies in them. I agree with your hubby…just give me a bowl, the sauce has amazing flavor. Mine was over spaghetti squash and hubby/kids over pasta. Thanks! I can’t wait to try more of your recipes.

  2. Any chance you could share the magic mushroom powder recipe. I am dying to have it and unfortunately dont own an ipad.
