Meal Planning for the week

I am usually one who likes the task of making a list but then never following through.  However, meal planning is where I almost always follow through.  I may change a day up as the week goes, but the meal usually stays the same unless it turns into meal out.  The precious 30 minutes I have before the toddler meltdown WILL begin has made me a quicker/simpler week night cook.  I also like anything that can almost be done by the time I'm home from work.  Crock pot, I love you.

Here is the plan for this week...

Breakfasts - Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins that I will be making later today (along with fruit, yogurt or eggs and I am going to try to make overnight oats one night this week as well)

Lunches -  Salads.. I have cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, beans, lettuce, cheese, almonds, yellow peppers, fruits, chicken and dressing ready to go..

What is your favorite salad?  I need to change it up on the daily or I get bored.  Anyone ever use laughing cow cheese in a salad? It's tempting me..

Dinners

Monday  - Veggie Stir fry and then chicken sausages (w/sun dried tomatoes and mozzarella) on the side

Tuesday - Crock pot Pot roast with mashed potatoes and gravy (carrots and onions will be cooked with the roast)

Wednesday - leftovers (another week night must have haha)

Thursday - Stuffed chicken breasts w/ asparagus and cheese for the fam while I am out to book club

Friday - Spaghetti & Meatballs w/ garlic bread, steamed green beans

Snacks will be - almonds, string cheese, apples, clementines, blueberries ..

What is on your menu this week?

I haven't tried laugjing cow cheese in a salad but it sounds pretty good, especially the garlic kind. I haven't followed through on the weekly menu for obvious reasons but I look forward to getting back to it.

Also, I always add sunflower seeds to my salads and use greek dressing - Target brand. Mmmmmmm!!!
