Menu Plan Monday ~ April 30/18 Weekly Dinner Inspiration

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday!

Menu Plan Monday for the week of April 30, 2018 - weekly dinner inspiration to help you get dinner on the table each night with less stress and chaos

Hi friends! How are you today? We went to pick up my son from college this past weekend and move him out of his dorm room. What a job that was! A lot of boxing to do and a whole lot of cleaning. All this plus the two days of back to back driving and my body is so not happy with me. I have RA and travel exhausts me in the worst way. I’m moving pretty slowly but it’s all good because I have my boy home for the next four months. Yay! That makes this momma very happy πŸ™‚

Menu planning gets a little trickier though because of all his food allergies but we’ll make it work. It’ll just take me a hot minute to get back into the routine of it all.

Also I’m so excited to get back into grilling on the BBQ. We finally have some beautifully delightful weather ahead of us and it feels so good and warm. Gosh I love being warm. Of course I’d prefer to be warm in Florida or Hawaii but hey this Canadian girl will take what she can get πŸ™‚

If you missed my tea cabinet organization post I did last week, I’d love it if you’d pop over and check it out. You know I just had to use my beloved teas to share some fantastic organizing wisdom with you. Every opportunity I can find to share this crazy passion of mine with you and get others hooked on organizing. Ha!

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

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: Slow Cooker Ham with mashed potatoes and broccoli

Tuesday: Grilled Steak with Roasted Asparagus and Baked Sweet Potatoes

Wednesday: Baked Chicken Breasts with Greek Souvlaki Marinade served with tossed salad

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night with 5 minute homemade pizza dough and for me Paleo Flatbread Pizza (didn’t get a chance to try last week)

Saturday: BLT Salad with Avocado

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

    I missed the tea organization post so I’m heading there to read it after I link up my menu for the week. I’m a tea lover and have SO many teas. Can’t wait to read it.

    Sorry to hear about your RA and the problems traveling.

    Does college end this early these days? I know when I graduated we did finish until June. I did keep my parents from having to do the moving with me – I lived at home until I got married some years after college and grad school were finished.

      Yes college here goes September to April with four months off in the summer months. Lots of time to work and save up for the next year πŸ™‚

        Amazing the differences – we went from the start of September into early June with 3 months off – although I went then also so I could finish a year early.

        How they fit it all into a month less these days amazes me.

          Just thought to mention – colleges here just started having graduations last weekend. They are ongoing at this time for the various colleges (lots of them) here.

    I am in love with this website! And the meal planning just pushed me over the edge. Love it! In the past week I have told all my lady friends about this website.

    I also have RA and I am sorry to read about another mom having it to, but I was excited to see someone else trying to keep life going.

    Thank you for all you do and for sharing!!

      Hi Joyce, thanks for your sweet words. RA is not a nice disease but certainly manageable. One day at a time, right?!
