Welcome back to another week in June and another weekly menu plan! We’re serving up some of our favorite comfort food and trying out a new simple chicken fingers recipe.
I’m often asked about these meal plans. Specifically, why do I bother to take the time to make them? Well, it’s simple. They save me time, they save me money, and they save me aggravation!
Now that I’ve been making these menu plans for a while, I’ve found that they take me very little time to put together. If I’m feeling a little “stale” or uninspired, I simply look back through previous meal plans for ideas.
The amount of time it takes me each week (anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes depending on how much time I want to spend on it) is far less than the amount of time we would spend every afternoon trying to figure it out day by day!
WEEKLY MENU PLAN
If you’re ready to embrace meal planning, but unsure of where to start, simply use my menu plans as inspiration.
Spaghetti with chicken parm meatballs, garlic bread, Caesar salad
Applesauce meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans
Chicken fingers (Cut up chicken into strips, dip into combination of 1/2 cup orange marmalade, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp garlic, and 2 T soy sauce, then into crushed Rice Krispies. Bake at 400 F for about half an hour). Oven fries (I don’t peel the potatoes. Wash, cut into strips. Dip in egg white and bake until golden and crispy.). Broccoli and carrots with Ranch dip.
Pork chops with rice. Roasted Brussels sprouts and squash.
Make your own mini pizzas. Can use regular mini pizza crusts or English muffins or bagels. Add favorite toppings. Side salad.
Chicken quesadillas with favorite toppings. Guacamole and chips.
Dr. Pepper pulled pork in the slow cooker. Served on buns with coleslaw and potato salad.
