Menu Plan Monday ~ April 23/18 Weekly Dinner Inspiration

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday!

Menu Plan Monday for the week of April 23/2018 - weekly dinner inspiration to help you get dinner on the table each night with less stress and chaos

Hey all! Not one of you were freaked out last week when I said I love Mondays. You are kind. So I’m going to step out on another limb and admit this week that I love grocery shopping. Is that weird? Like I really really love it in a really really big way. Ha!

I love the challenge of trying to stay in budget and watching the prices in case their is an error. In Canada at certain stores if you catch an error (an item scanned in at the wrong price) you get it for free (up to $10). No Frills and Walmart both follow this Scanner Price Accuracy Code and I’m not kidding I get something free almost every single week from one of these stores. Last week it was Terra Chips from No Frills. They won’t mention it to you. You have to mention it to them that your item should be free and then they’ll deduct it off your bill. It is sooooo worth it to watch your prices. Do you have anything like this in the US?

I know grocery shopping is hard with little ones but when my kids were younger I’d get them involved in the experience and everything went so much smoother. Believe it or not I actually miss having helpers now.

Speaking of kids, my middle son comes home from college this weekend for the whole summer. I’m just so excited to see him and have him home for awhile.

We have finally started getting some above zero temperatures here. Thankfully the snow has started to melt and as soon as it melts around my shed, I’ll finally be able to get my deck set up again. Sunshine and warmth make me so happy!

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

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: Tortellini Alfredo for the boys and for me Garlic Orange Glazed Salmon

Tuesday: Quick and Easy Taco Salad with Quick Blender Salsa

Wednesday: Roasted Sheet Pan Chicken Thighs with Carrots & Potatoes

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night with 5 minute homemade pizza dough and for me Paleo Pizza Crust

Saturday: Roasted Herbed Beef Tips

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!
