Menu Plan Monday ~ May 28/18 Weekly Dinner Inspiration

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday!

Menu Plan Monday for the week of May 28, 2018 - weekly dinner inspiration to help you get dinner on the table with less stress and less chaos

Hi everyone! I know many of my US friends have today off for Memorial Day. I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

Are you feeling excited to make some yummy meals this week? Do you find you get too ambitious with your menu planning and then are too tired to make what you planned? It’s actually the reason so many people give up with creating a menu plan. But here’s the thing. Why not plan your meals assuming you’ll always be tired? Because let’s face it, we usually are especially when it comes to dinner time. So lower your expectations and keep things simple. There are many easy recipes with few ingredients out there that still taste great. Believe me, you’ll thank yourself later!

Recipe Highlight:

Yesterday I had some ripe bananas to use up and decided to make some Paleo muffins. These Pineapple Banana Muffins were absolutely delicious. So so good. They weren’t dry at all and had such a great flavor. No refined sugar either, yay! There is a glaze recipe you can make to drizzle over top but I didn’t bother. I highly recommend this recipe whether you eat Paleo or not. Yum!

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

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: The Best Slow Cooker Pulled Pork served with tossed salad

Tuesday: Baked Chicken Legs with Garlic & Dijon served with rice and broccoli

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night with 5 minute homemade pizza dough and for me Simple Smoked Salmon Scramble

    Laura – why do you make such elaborate meals? We go with much simpler meals and repeat them week to week. Like you we have limitations on what we can eat for medical reasons, as well as a rather tight budget. The only meal that might fit into what we can eat is the pork and vegetables and pork is much too expensive for us.

    Just so you know, while people do say happy Memorial Day here – it really is not an appropriate thing when one thinks of the purpose of the day – remembering our war dead.

      Thank you Mary for the clarification. As for our meals, it really doesn’t get any easier than a sheet pan dinner. They are the best. Thankfully pork isn’t expensive for us here. I absolutely love trying new recipes (even though I’m a terrible cook lol) and I like to keep things fresh for my readers who come here looking for new recipe ideas. They’d get pretty bored if I shared the same recipes week after week. Thankfully it’s a win win! I hope you have a great week ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thank you for your response. I looked back at the recipe. It is only about the same 20 min to half hour that what I cook takes. But we cannot have the potatoes,salt, the seasonings or the oil. I am guessing it would not cook well without the oil.
