Menu Planning Monday #61

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.

I feel like we’ve got a good variety of meals this week and two out of the three we have personally tried and loved, so at least you know you can count on those ones as good recommendations!


Foil Baked Salmon with Basil Pesto and Tomatoes 

I still have half a container of Costco’s Basil Pesto to use, and this recipe looks like the perfect thing to use it on.  Gwyn wasn’t always a fan of salmon, but I have continued to make it and now she loves it! Cal will tolerate it, but isn’t begging for me to make it. Maybe one day!

Kalyn’s Kitchen



Baked Balsamic Chicken

When I first made this I thought, “Aww, I bet that’s going to leave a tough pan to scrub,” but it didn’t! And it was delicious.

Creme de la Crumb





The husband and I are off to Vegas for a few days which means some good eats for us! But because I felt rude leaving you with only two recipes this week, I will suggest this one as well:

Chicken Avocado Burritos 

These. Are. Everything.  And to save a few calories try subbing greek yogurt for the sour cream. You won’t notice the difference. I’m drooling.

Oh My Goodness… Chocolate Desserts



Hmmmmm…… pizza?


  1. Oh yum! This looks delicious, my kids will love trying these! At least, 2 out of 3 will, haha!

  2. That balsamic chicken looks amazing! Will have to try that one this week.

  3. Balsamic chicken is one of my absolute dishes! Also, going to try the avocado chicken wraps!

  4. Looks yummy!! Have fun in Vegas!!

  5. All of those recipes look so yummy! I’ll have to add those chicken avocado burritos to my meal plan next week 😉 Thanks for sharing!

  6. I’m definitely gonna have to try that pesto salmon!
