Menu Planning Monday #58

Welcome to another Menu Planning Monday! Here I try to plan out healthy, EASY meals that will get me in and out of that kitchen as quickly as possible while still keeping our palettes satisfied.

And here I sit, on a Friday night after a week of solo-parenting and the sound of cooking a meal for anyone sounds hideous. My husband left town very last minute last Monday, after I had already gone grocery shopping, so I still ended up cooking when I normally wouldn’t when he is gone so that the ingredients wouldn’t go bad. So, this week  I am taking it EASY!

Monday

Spaghetti and meatballs

I have some leftover frozen meatballs I can use, so if all I have to do is boil some water and make a simple sauce, I think I can manage.

But if you’re looking for a recipe to try out yourself, then I think this one looks simple, easy and tasty.

Tuesday

Costco Turkey Burgers and Costco Veggie Superfood Burgers

Have you had these? They are good! I really enjoy both of these.

And I couldn’t find a photo of the veggie burgers as I believe they are relatively new to Costco, and I took ours out of the box, but really, check them out. They’re tasty.

Wednesday

Crispy Slow Cooker Carnitas 

This meal consists of just throwing things in a crockpot, so I can probably manage this one, and it is a family-favorite.

Thursday

Leftovers

Friday

Grilled cheese and tomato soup? Pigs in a blanket? Brinner? The possibilities are endless…

If the week is going well, maybe I will even throw in a few extra ingredients and make these Turkey Bacon and Avocado Grilled Cheese, which look really tasty.

Everyone can fend for themselves…
