Menu Plan Monday ~ March 19/18 Weekly Dinner Inspiration

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday!

Menu Plan Monday for the week of March 19/18 - weekly dinner inspiration to help you get dinner on the table with less stress and chaos

Hi friends and happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? Sunny I hope! Last week I hit it out of the park menu wise. I totally feel okay bragging about it cause we all know that’s not always the case around here πŸ™‚ The honey mustard chicken thighs were easy to prepare and so delicious.

Then there was the Dairy-free Spaghetti Squash Alfredo. I simplified the recipe by using leftover chicken and cooking the spaghetti squash in the microwave. The Alfredo sauce was made out of cashews and you’d never even know. So good!

The Sheet Pan Pesto Pork Tenderloin, Potatoes and Asparagus was also pretty yummy. The pesto sauce had such a great flavor especially considering it didn’t have any Parmesan cheese in it. I just blended it up in the mini food processor that I have. Worked perfectly. I just love sheet pan dinners so much! They are the easiest thing to prepare because it only takes one pan and you don’t have to babysit the dish while it cooks. My kind of meal!

You can find all the recipes on last week’s Menu Plan Monday post.Β 

Here’s what we’ll be eating this week and of course I had to include yet another sheet pan recipe.

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: Pineapple Ham Sheet Pan Dinner

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Coconut Lime Chicken served with asparagus

Wednesday: Grilled Pineapple Burgers with Spicy Avocado Cream

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night with 5 minute homemade pizza dough and for me Chili Lime Baked Salmon (using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce)

Saturday: I’m going to another birthday party and everyone is bringing a snack to share. I can’t decide between these two recipes: Paleo Caramel Sauce over popcorn or Pineapple Salsa served with tortilla chips. Help a girl out, which one do you think?Β  I might have to do some taste testing ahead of time just to see. Oh and I should point out that corn is not Paleo.

Update: I did a test run and the caramel sauce was amazing!! It was not amazing on the popcorn however as it made it a soggy mess. It’s not a caramel sauce that hardens unfortunately so that didn’t work out very well πŸ™

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

    I know I’m not going to the party, but I’d vote for the Paleo Caramel Popcorn. That caramel looks delicious!

      Haha, well I did a test run tonight and the sauce was AMAZING! However it just made the popcorn a soggy mess when poured on. I think the sauce would be delicious with apples though instead πŸ™‚

    Your suggestions always sound interesting, but would not work here either due to foods that either of us will not (mostly me – I have always been a picky eater), one or both of us cannot eat for health reasons – or they are too expensive for us – we live on rather limited budget.

    I have never heard of anything called a “sheet pan dinner” – they seem to be baked dinners? My dinners tend to be cast iron frying pan dinners – to the point where I don’t put same away from day to day.
