Menu Plan Monday ~ Nov 28/16

Menu Plan Monday for the week of Nov 28/16 - recipe links and menu planning inspiration at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

Hi friends! How are you? Ready to get your menu plan done for the week? Trust me, you’ll be so happy you did! Don’t do things the hard way by stressing out every day about what you’re going to eat for dinner. That’s silly, a menu plan makes all the stress go away. Okay maybe not all the stress, the kids will still melt down at 4:00 but with a menu plan in place at least you’ll be able to hide in a corner and still get dinner on the table. Ha!

Recipe Highlight:

So last week I mentioned my friends and I were doing a Gilmore Girls viewing party and one of the things I brought was super easy two ingredient Paleo Bacon-Wrapped Pears. Oh my goodness, they were so delicious, I made more the next day for dinner. Yep dinner. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised because hello bacon. But the combination of the salty and sweet just felt like such a yummy treat!


8 Easy Sheet Plan Dinners:

While I was on Pinterest last night, scrolling away as I usually do on Sunday nights looking for dinner recipes, I came across something I thought could help you with the whole getting dinner on the table fast thing. Check out these 8 Easy Sheet Pan Dinner Recipes from Eat at Home. Basically you throw everything onto a pan, pop it in the oven and go watch Netflix for awhile while you wait for it to cook. You’re welcome πŸ™‚
