>Menu Plan – Week of May 22

>It’s the last week of preschool for us and the first week with DH working his new job from our home every day. So, I am working harder to restock the freezer and pantry with quick, healthy, yummy meals and snacks. Since all 3 of us will be home now, it’s essential to plan ahead to avoid the 12:00 rush for fast food and the even more costly 5:30 take out orders. We will be heading to the pool nearly every day starting next week and I am on the lookout for nutritious meal options that can be easily packed into a cooler.

Weeknight Dinners:

Lunches:

  • My two biggest time savers when it comes to lunch are to prepare a batch of basic pasta salad and a huge green salad early in the week. Then, I can use leftover meat and add a yogurt to have a complete lunch in less than 5 minutes.
  • Baked Chicken Fingers over green salad with homemade croutons
  • BBQ Chicken over pasta salad
  • Quesadillas using leftover grilled steak
  • Steak sandwiches with horseradish cream and chips

Snacks:
