Menu Plan Monday ~ April 17/17 Weekly Dinner Inspiration

Menu Plan Monday - weekly dinner inspiration for the week of April 17/17 at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

Hello there, we meet again! I hope you all had a nice relaxing Easter weekend with friends and family. Now it’s time to get ready for another organized week with a simple menu plan. I don’t know about you but after a big holiday meal I definitely want to eat lighter meals over the next couple of days.

Our big meal, made by my hubby, included a huge farm fresh chicken (so good!), mashed potatoes and tomatoes for me. The rest of my family had corn on the cob but I can’t eat corn.

I made Paleo Strawberry Apple Crisp for dessert but it was just okay, a little too sweet for me. Still trying to find the perfect Paleo recipe for my favorite dessert.

We’ve also had three days of snow over the weekend so just forget about what I said last week about spring being here. I should know better πŸ™

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

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: Homemade Chicken Soup (made using the leftover chicken carcass)

Tuesday: Continuing with chicken leftovers: Paleo Chicken Bacon Strawberry Salad

Wednesday: Pineapple Bacon Burgers (because bacon!)

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night with 5 minute homemade pizza dough and for me Shrimp Scampi

Saturday: Herb Pan Fried Pork Chops (I’ll sub the flour for something else) served with rice and broccoli

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

    What will you sub for flour in the pork chops? I love me some friend chops but have avoided it for this very reason! LOL Panko is out too and that was my favorite way to coat them. Have a great week!

      Hi Kim, I’m thinking I would try tapioca starch or arrowroot flour. I’ll keep you posted as to how it turns out!

      Hi Diana, I’m sorry about that. I was having site problems on Monday. It is there but you have to click on it and it opens into a new window. Should be all fixed by next Monday πŸ™‚

    We had a 10 lb. ham for Easter so my plans for Tue and Wed are a Ham Noodle Casserole and Navy Bean Soup made with the bone of the ham. Haven’t gotten any further than Wed.

      I love stretching out one meal and turning it into many!
