Meal Plan Monday

It seems like every time I write this post I start with "We've got another busy week this week."  I guess the question is when we ever won't have a crazy week.  This week, however, we have enough things going on in the evening that I have finally broken down and written assigned each meal to a specific day of the week.  If you've been following these posts you probably know that I always plan for about 5 meals for the week, and then I just figure it out each night.  I think planning this way, may help me stay better on top of things like remembering to thaw chicken ahead of time.

Here is my plan for this week --

Monday – Spaghetti with Roasted Chicken and Marinara (Host my friends for a "girls night in")
Tuesday – Lemon Roasted Chicken
Wednesday – Single-Serve Spinach Quiche (After we get home from serving at our church that night for Room in the Inn)
Thursday – Take-Out (Soccer Practice runs from 5:30-6:30)
Friday – Vegetarian Fajitas/Quesadillas (Keeping Fridays Vegetarian for Lent)
Saturday – Birthday Party (We are celebrating my nephew's 3rd Birthday Party)
Sunday – Beef Empanadas with corn, black bean, and tomato salad

I’m also planning to make some homemade peanut butter granola bars with my girls.  I am looking for a healthy on-the-go snack for them, and it’s really hard to find something that’s not full of high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, and preservatives.  I am excited to try these out, and I’ll let you know how they go.
