Menu Planning Monday #40

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!


We will be coming home from Portland, and I am sure will just pick something up. Actually, I am certain of it, because I have nothing planned!


Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Cashew Chicken 

This looks SO good!

Creme de la Crumb



Sweet Potato Taco Bowls

These are easy and delish!

Baked Lemon Chicken

Simply Home Cooked


Saturday and Sunday

It’s time to celebrate our Cal turning 4 and our Gwyn turning 6, so that is what we will be doing with family this weekend. Fun!


  1. Mmm I love lemon chicken! A classic favorite of mine! Looks like a good lineup for the week!

  2. Thanks for sharing! That coconut curry cashew chicken looks uh-maze-ing! I think I’ll have to edit my grocery list.

  3. Lemon chicken..I might have to try that! you are such a rock star. I can barely meal plan right now and it’s just the two of us!! I need to stop making excuses because when we have kids, it’s only going to get more complicated.

  4. Oh, the sweet potato meal looks so good! I haven’t had sweet potatoes in far too long!

  5. Those taco bowls look like a game changer! I love sweet potatoes and I love taco bowls. This may be a match made in heaven for me!

  6. Yum those recipes look so good! I love the taco bowl idea, and I need to try that coconut curry cashew chicken. Looks like something my husband would LOVE! Thanks for sharing.

  7. All of these look so delicious! Especially the baked potato and chicken! I have some chicken that needs to be baked!
