Meal Planning Monday #21

It’s Monday!  Whew…what a weekend!  I might be recovering from it all week.  No joke.  If you’re looking for me this week, I will be home in my sweats lying down.  Mama needs a big nap after this weekend’s festivities.  
Sigh.  No matter how exhausted I might be…there are these 3 people that live in my house that kind of like to eat from time to time, so alas…I must feed them.  This week is about simple.  It’s going to be cold…so we need cozy, comforting and simple suppers each night.  Happy Monday!
Enchilada Chili is simple, hearty and so flavorful!  I made mine with ground turkey but ground beef would be just as delicious.  The perfect meal for this week!
All of the flavor of yummy meatloaf but in Sloppy Joe form…my Meatloaf Joes.
My Fiesta Chicken with Rice will be on the table in minutes.  This is a busy mama’s solution to the week day supper.
Smith’s favorite supper is my Baked Pizza Pasta Casserole.  A pasta that tastes like pizza?  I don’t blame the kid!
My Italian Risotto is a yummy vegetarian option or you can add sliced turkey sausage for a meatier version (like pictured above).  No matter which way you make it, you’ll love it!
My featured bundt cake this week…Sticky Toffee.  Oh.my.goodness.  You will love this!
And I love these Strawberry Lemon Oatmeal Bars for both breakfast and dessert…yes, I can find a way to justify this for breakfast!
OK…so if you can’t justify the bars for breakfast…what about my Fresh Strawberry Muffins?  Simple and delicious.  And so pretty too :).
Come back tomorrow for the cutest Valentine’s Day recipe!
Happy Monday!

    I can attest to the enchilada chili…so delicious. I'm going to try the chili chicken and give the kids the option to eat it on rice or with tortillas as a taco. Thanks for the recipes!

    Ok, tried the enchilada chili last night, and it was to die for! My 3 year old, who can be very picky, ate ALL of it, and it was easy to make – a win, win. I was skeptical about sauteing the onion in the browned beef, but it was great – loved how they kept a bit of the onion flavor. I subbed a can of chopped green chiles and a can of chopped tomatoes since Rotel is hard to come by in Scotland, and it worked great. This recipe is definitely a keeper – thank you!
