Meal Planning Monday #167

Meal Planning Monday

It’s Monday.


If you have no idea what your family is going to eat this week…have no fear, I am here 🙂 .  Five simple suppers, a sweet treat and breakfast too.  xo

Mushroom Risotto

Mmmmmm.  We have risotto at our house all the time!  I don’t call it risotto (because my kids would never eat anything with a weird name like that!), so I call it fancy rice 🙂 .  And they all love fancy rice.  This Mushroom Risotto comes together in 30 minutes.  That’s it!  So simple, so good and it’s meatless.  A little Meatless Monday for you.

Crispy Chicken with Poblano Sauce

Speaking of things my kids love, my Crispy Chicken with Poblano Sauce.  Now, really only two of the kids eat the poblano sauce (and Andrew and me!), but all of the kids adore the crispy chicken (two like it with ketchup)…so make the chicken and the sauce and try it out on your peeps too!

Taco Chili

Just say yes to my Taco Chili.  You’ll have zero regrets.

Chicken & Dumplings

There are a handful of recipes that just scream January to me…and Chicken and Dumplings is one of them.

Mexican Meatballs

Mexican Meatballs to round out your week!  Loads of flavor in your supper (without a lot of heat!).

Berry Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler

My Berry Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler blows my mind every single time!  Oh friends…this is so good!  All you need are cozy sweats, a great show to binge on Netflix and a bowl of this and you have the perfect evening.

Quick & Easy French Toast

And your weekend needs my Quick & Easy French Toast.  So. Darn. Delicious!

That’s it!  Happy Monday!

    This will be for Sunday for me, because I always meal prep on Sundays instead. Thank you.

    Your taco chili and chicken and dumplings are soooo good! Everyone in my family is a big fan!

    This meal plan sounds amazing! particularly that taco chilli and cobbler. I love you plan desserts too, I think it’s important to allow treats as well 🙂

    I make that Taco Chili every other week in the winter. It is probably one of my favorite recipes and so easy too.

    Which of your cookbooks are these receipes from? The mushroom risotto & chicken & dumplimgs sound wonderful! Would like to check out more too!

    Got to try the cobbler! Question–the mushroom risotto looks SO GOOD! If we DID want to add a meat, do you have a suggestion? Toss in some chopped cooked chicken breast at the end? Ground beef?

      I would either brown up some sausage before you begin and leave it in the skillet and proceed with the rest of the recipe or I would add some already cooked and chopped chicken to the skillet toward the end of the recipe just to heat it through. You could do ground beef…but I think sausage would be better.

      I would add in some sausage (or ground beef) before you did the first step and then just proceed with the recipe with the browned meat in the pan or add in chopped, cooked chicken when you add in the mushrooms.

    Shay… I JUST saw that you have a slow cooker cookbook coming out!!! Goodness, I can’t keep up with all your cookbooks! 🙂 Will this have recipes solely from your website or new ones, too? Love my crockpot!

    • Mix and Match Mama January 9, 2017 at 1:08 pm

      Almost all new ones :). It’s my fave!!

    • Mix and Match Mama January 11, 2017 at 5:39 am
