Meal Plans {week of July 18}

Hi guys! Last week was a little bit hectic as we had vacation bible school going on at our church so that meant early or super late dinners.  Also, my oldest son turned 11! So, we celebrated over the weekend and during the week.  However, I still cooked most of the week.  I am trying to remember to take pictures of my meals rather than just dig in because, I’m so hungry! LOL. I hope these meals help give you some ideas of meals for your family and helps make your meal planning a little easier!

Monday

Crockpot Coconut Chicken

This is so easy.  You mix a can of coconut milk, brown sugar, ground cloves, some garlic and soy sauce in a crockpot and leave it.  Make some rice and top with shredded coconut & cilantro and you have an amazing meal.  If you want the exact recipe feel free to comment but, it’s hard to go wrong.

*Served with a side salad (not pictured)

 

Tuesday

This was my son’s birthday so we met daddy for a late lunch at Red Robin and ate some leftovers before heading to VBS! Night off for this mama!

 

Wednesday

Strawberry bacon salad

I love the summer for all of the fresh produce we can get at our local farmers market so, we put them to good use this night! I try to do a fun salad as an entrée in the summer once a week, to make sure the produce doesn’t go to waste.  This salad includes: green leaf lettuce, cucumbers, strawberries, bacon, and candied pecans topped with a red wine vinaigrette dressing.  So yummy and healthy (well except the bacon lol).

Thursday

Italian Sausage & Potatoes

sausage and potatoes

This week Italian sausage was on sale,  so I cut that up, with some red potatoes, onions and peppers and seasoned it well.  The main seasoning I use are Italian, some chicken stock, garlic salt, garlic powder, and pepper.  Top with parsley. Delicious!

 

Friday

Fried Chicken (my healthier version)

For a healthier version, I use boneless, skin-less chicken breast that I cut up and mainly cook the same way I normally fry chicken.  It’s still crispy and juicy on the inside.  I will share the recipe in the future but, the main seasonings that I find make or break fried chicken are: season salt and garlic powder!

*I served this meal with mashed potatoes & green beans (not pictured)

 

Saturday

We met up with some friends and had a big cookout together!

 

Sunday

Leftovers from the cookout the day before…I made some frozen veggies to go with the sausages and potato salad we had left!

 

I cook at least 5 days a week so, I try to take off the weekend if possible so this week worked out better than usual! If you are looking for more ideas for meal planning, check out another post here.

Happy planning! xoxo
