Meal Planning Monday #195


Meal Planning Monday

Hello last week of summer.

This time next week, it’s our first day of school.

I better get all of my lazy mornings and late night in this week…because it’s almost over.  So sad!!!!!!!!

Annnnnnd because I was on QVC yesterday (woohoo!) and got home last night, I am home spending the day with my kiddos today, so I only have one post for you.  I’ll be back tomorrow though with two!

In the meantime, here is a simple meal plan to help my end of summer blues.  Easy, delicious, family-friendly meals everyone will love.

Happy Monday, friends!

BBQ Ranch Chicken Sandwiches

BBQ Ranch Chicken Sandwiches for the win this Monday.  This slow cooker supper is going to knock your socks off!

Spinach & Swiss Meatballs

We love us some meatballs at our house.  These Spinach and Swiss Meatballs over Quinoa just cannot be topped!

Teriyaki Shrimp Pasta

Teriyaki Shrimp Pasta.  Noodles and shrimp…my kids’ favorite things!

Mexi Beef over Rice

Ahhhh…Mexi Beef over Rice.  We serve it over rice but you can serve it over whatever you like (quinoa, polenta, pasta, lettuce…whatever makes you happy!).

BLAT Burgers

My B.L.A.T. Burgers for your Friday.  These yummy turkey burgers have all of the flavors of a BLT but with my avocado mash on top…because let’s face it, avocado makes everything better.

Autumn Applesauce

If you’re looking for something a little sweet…my Autumn Applesauce in the Slow Cooker makes an excellent snack, dessert or even breakfast.

And speaking of breakfast…

Bacon & Tot Casserole

I don’t know if I’ve ever made a breakfast casserole for my taste-testers (a.k.a. the people in my Sunday school class) that was a bigger hit than this one (and they’ve tried approximately 4 billion).  My Bacon & Tot Casserole is FANTASTIC!  You must make it this weekend.  Promise me you will 😉 .

Here’s hoping you have a fantastic start to your week!
