Menu Planning Monday #30

Welcome to Menu Planning Monday!

For some, one of the worst parts about menu planning is actually deciding on what to make. I find myself stressed out once the late afternoon hits and I have no idea what we are having for dinner, so if I want to prevent that and stay on top of things, menu planning it is. Each week I try to plan for healthy meals that currently do not include any dairy or that can easily be adapted (baby is intolerant), that don’t include a bunch of crazy ingredients and that will get me in and out of that kitchen as quickly as possible.

Here is what we are having this week. Most of these we have yet to try out, except for the blue cheese smothered steaks at the bottom. They are seriously so good, and while I will have to adapt mine due to the dairy this year, I am excited to make these for the husband for Valentines day for the third year in a row.

If you have any recipes you think we should try, let me know!


Spaghetti Squash with Mushrooms and Parmesan 

Yum. This looks good. Since my guy is a meat guy, though, I will also be adding some sort of meat to this. Beef maybe?

Pickled Plum



Date night = Leftovers


Kielbasa Pepper, Onion and Potato Hash 

This is good. Really good. And my friend recently made this with sweet potatoes, which I will be trying this time, too. We have something going on this night and since this is quick to make and a family fave, it’s the clear answer.

Zucchini Noodles with Cilantro Lime Chicken

My husband bought one of those zoodle things that strings veggies into the shapes of spagehtti noodles, so I thought we would try it out with this recipe.

Spicy Fish Taco Bowls 

And I didn’t get to this recipe when I posted it last week, and since I still have all the ingredients we will be having it this week instead.
