Easy Meal Planning {Week of June 1}

Easy Meal Planning. Easy and healhty dinner inspiration for the whole family.

It’s easy meal planning Sunday!

Summer finally decided to show up this weekend.  So far it’s been gorgeous, cloud free and warm.  My fingers and toes are crossed that it’s sticking around for good.  Although I must say 80 degrees feels a lot warmer when you are coming off of temps only in the 50s.  A gradual warmer would have been a lot easier to acclimate to!

My kids have a week and a half of school left.  They go super late into the summer which has positive and negatives.  On the positive side, it means that’s less weeks of having to send them to camp.  On the negative, they are so ready for a summer vacation.  I swear it’s like the kids have an internal clock that immediately goes off when the end of the school year is near.

Alright, on to meal planning for the week.  Time to figure out what’s for dinner this week.

Sunday: Birthday party

Monday: Grilled Chicken + Veggies

Tuesday: Grilled Cedar Plank Honey Chiptole Salmon

Wednesday: Big Burger Bowl

Thursday: Sweet Potato Quinoa Fiesta Bake

Friday: Ron’s homemade pizza

Saturday: Date night?

Meal Planning - What's for dinner this week

Hey there!

I’m so ready to get my meal planning on today.  After a week of vacation and not eating my “usual” food followed up with playing nonstop catch up since we’ve got home, I’m looking forward to the usual routine.  It’s nice to vary from the norm but routine is good too.

Even though the weather hasn’t been feeling too summer like, I’m feeling the need to use the grill more often.  Side note – yesterday totally felt like a really nice fall day in late September or October rather than June.  WTF?!?! This week, I have 3 nights of meals planned for the grill.  I love grilling a boatload of veggies to have on hand for the whole week too. If the grill’s on, why not?

Here’s what’s for dinner this week in my house.

Sunday: Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon + veggies

Monday: Green Pancakes (late baseball practice)

Tuesday:  Easy Chicken Fajita Power Bowl

Wednesday: Grilled Haddock + Pesto Zoodles

Thursday: Southwest BBQ Chicken Salad

Friday: Ron’s homemade pizza

Saturday: Dinner out

What’s for Dinner? { Week of May 14 }

What's for dinner now

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mama’s out there!

I realized last night that I did not do a Mother’s Day themed post this past week at all.  It was a crazy week of appointments, baseball practices/games and late nights in addition to the other daily usual stuff.  I had to prioritize and a blog post was not high on the list.

This week is looking a little less nutzo thankfully.

But today, it’s my day off.

I think that’s the best Mother’s Day gift ever.  A day off from laundry, cooking, cleaning, refereeing, and being Super Mom.

I hope you have a lovely day planned full of everything you want to do.  I have no idea what we are doing because I told my family that they need to plan it.

That being said, it’s Sunday and it’s time to find out what’s for dinner this week.

Sunday: Whatever Ron and the kids serve me 🙂

Monday: Pick your egg sandwiches

Tuesday: Sesame Crusted Chicken with Roasted Potatoes from Sun Basket

Wednesday: Grilled Salmon + 4 Ingredient Pesto Zoodle Bowl

Thursday: Tamale Pie

Friday: Date night/Candlelight Yoga Class

Saturday: Ron’s homemade pizza

What are your Mother’s Day plans?
