Menu Planning Monday #121

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.

This week is full of fun, festive activities, so I want to keep it simple, yet tasty!


It’s my birthday this day and I’ve decided to don’t want to cook! Ha! So…. I am going to hope for the best that someone else takes the lead here.. 😉


Hearty Country-Style Minestrone Soup

31 Daily



Gwyn has her Christmas concert this night and we are all going out beforehand.


Lemon Butter Chicken

While this isn’t the absolute healthiest dish, I DO already have most of the ingredients and I’m really not opposed to a savory, full-fat meal once in a while!

Easy Peazy Mealz




But! For those looking for one more delicious meal for the week, this one is tried and true!
