What's For Dinner - This Week

And just like that, we're back from Spring Break!

The hardest part of cooking dinner is coming up with something to eat.  My hope is to help you out here - even if it's only one night!  Below is what I have planned for my family for dinner this week.

I like to plan my weekly dinner menu on Mondays as I grocery shop Tuesday mornings.  So my weekly menu runs from Tuesday to the following Monday.  But of course, do what works best with your schedule!  If you want to see more of how I meal plan, find all the posts in my series HERE.

In addition to what I have planned below, I usually have a simple side dish of steamed green vegetables (broccoli, green beans, Brussel sprouts, etc.) and almost always a green salad.  You can find my salads HERE.

I keep all my recipes on my recipe blog for easy storing and sharing.  When I learn how to use my new camera, I'll one day {maybe} add a fabulous picture to each of my recipes ;)!  Until then, you'll just have to leave it to your imagination as to how good they are :).

Ham & Bean Soup HERE

Spaghetti HERE

Fried Chicken (from the deli!) and Potato Salad HERE

*Maybe you've noticed my trend on Thursdays - a sandwich something - my husband coaches my twins' soccer team and they have practice Thursday nights for the next 2 months.  My little kids love to go play at the park while they practice so I usually pack up a to-go type dinner (cheaper and slightly healthier than the drive-thru) and we eat there.  The whole family enjoys dinner at the park (I enjoy my night off from dishes)!

Pizza night!  Wahoo!

Fridge clean out (aka leftovers!)

Dilled Salmon HERE with Smashed Potatoes (no recipe - mashed red potatoes with skins left on, with shredded cheddar cheese, garlic and onion mixed in)

Creamy Lentils HERE

DISCLAIMER:  This menu is always subject to change to the closest fast food joint on any given day ;).
