Welcome to Menu Plan Monday!
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!
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
Wednesday: Whole 30 Sloppy Joe Bowls
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)
Have a wonderful week everyone!!
