Menu Plan Monday ~ October 17/16

Menu Plan Monday for the week of October 17/16 - recipe links and menu planning inspiration to make dinner time stress and chaos free at I'm an Organizing Junkie

Hi everyone! Time to get organized for the week by taking 20 minutes to create a menu plan. Or just copy mine below and it’ll only take you 5 minutes to print the recipes and create a shopping list. So easy!

Weeknight One Skillet Meals:

If you are looking for some more dinner inspiration check out this post with 15 Weeknight One Skillet Meals from Bless This Mess. I love one pot meals and easy clean up.


Also I have many more dinner recipe ideas on my Pinterest Boards:

Quick and Easy Recipes
Slow Cooker Recipes
Paleo Recipes

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when menu planning is selecting recipes that require more work than they have the time to prepare. My goal is always to get in and out of the kitchen fast. Some weeks I’m more excited about the recipes I’ve chosen than others. But this week I’m feeling pretty good about my picks πŸ™‚

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday:Β  Open-Faced Avocado BLT Sandwich (no bread for me)

Tuesday: Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Wednesday:Β  Slow Cooker Ham served with rice and broccoli

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night! with this Quick & Easy 5 Minute Homemade Pizza Dough and for me Apple Tuna Bites

Saturday:Β  Enchilada Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

    I actually made the enchilada sweet potatoes tonight, and they were simple & delicious. I added some beans to make the meat go further, & served it with corn & roast carrots. Really tasty, thanks for the recipe!
