Menu Plan Monday ~ Jan 16/17

Menu Plan Monday for the week of Jan 16/17 - weekly menu plan dinner inspiration plus recipe links including Paleo

Hi friends, welcome to Menu Plan Monday! In a matter of days we went from the -30C (-22F) weather we had been experiencing for weeks to 3C (37F). I was able to go for a walk today with no toque, no scarf and no parka! Woohoo!! I’m hoping the warm weather sticks around for awhile, that would sure be nice.

Also in case you missed it, last week I shared two commitments I’m making this year and one of them looks a little something like this:

2L of water a day, whew!

I do hope you take a few minutes today to create a menu plan for your week to set yourself up for success. Nothing makes life easier than not stressing come 4:00 about what’s for dinner. It makes such a HUGE difference!

Here’s what we’ll be eating this week.

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: Paleo Taco Stuffed Zucchini

Tuesday: One Pan Lemon Chicken with Veggies (I’ll use carrots instead of beans)

Wednesday: Pork Chops and Apple Sheet Pan Dinner

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night with 5 minute homemade pizza dough and for me Paleo Steak Salad with Creamy Garlic Vinaigrette

Saturday: Paleo Fish Tacos w/ a Spicy Slaw (a favorite!)

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

    Our forecast here in upstate NY is calling for a 10-day stretch of highs in the 30s and 40s, and I’m SO excited about it!! (And we don’t get temps nearly as cold as you do!) Enjoy the heat wave! πŸ™‚

    Thank you for your meal planning tips! I’ve learned that with a family of 7 planning meals is best for our budget, our health, and my sanity.

      Yes to all those things! I’d be so lost without my weekly menu plan that is for sure πŸ™‚

    Wow! Both of those temps are too cold for me! We have had some nice, unusually warm, weather as well, and I am loving it!

    Thanks so much for hosting!

      I love sheet pan dinners too, one pan that you don’t have to babysit in the oven. Easy clean up too!
