Menu Planning Monday #140

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.

So much has happened in less than a week! Last Monday I shared how we were heading to San Diego, and that night we canceled the trip! Ha! Instead, we decided to stay home and give our master bathroom a little makeover. Well, it is 10:00 pm on Sunday night and I think I just sat down for the first time since Friday. My back is KILLING me, but oh my goodness, I cannot WAIT to show you how it turned out! (I am sharing sneak peeks on my Instagram stories if interested.) We are still working on some small details, so I will work on getting the reveal post up asap! In the meantime, here is this week’s menu! Can you tell I just don’t have the energy to do anything right now?! Ha!


Rotisserie chicken,  canned green beans, and Hawaiian rolls


Rack of ribs from Costco and a bagged salad


Eating out


Pulled pork from Costco, Hawaiian rolls, and corn on the cob


Who knows!

I will apologize now to those of you who come here weekly for recipe inspiration! I just do not have it in me to make any more decisions tonight, or even this week, so there you have it. If you’re having a busy/tiring/whatever week, know you are not alone! And this week, we will be eating on the easy.

Have a great week!


  1. Sounds like you had a productive weekend! And Thank goodness for Costco! They have so many great options to grab for a quick and easy dinner when you are too tired to make a meal from scratch at home!

  2. This is the first time Ive visited your blog and I have to say, this is so refreshing!! I do weekly meal planning for our family and sometimes I legitimately have no energy to think of anything beyond a steak and potatoes kind of set up. So glad I found someone keeping it real and not telling me about 5 course meals they are prepping for their toddlers!

    • Awww that is just so heart-warming! Thank you so very much, I appreciate the kind words! And yes, sometimes it’s just NOT going to happen!

  3. One of my favorite easy go-to dinners during those crazy weeks is actually eggs. I can either use whatever fresh veggies are on hand or some frozen veg from the freezer, sautee them up, crack a couple eggs over it, scramble it together, and have some roasted sweet potato on the side. Easy peasy and so delicious!

  4. Great menu choices! I definitely struggle thinking of meals each night!

  5. Some weeks are just tough to figure out. Hawaiian rolls are always a good decision though.

  6. Can you come cook for me

  7. I love Costco so much and I cannot tell you how much meal planning has saved my life! Seriously, I started a few years ago and it’s a huge time and money saver for my family!

  8. This is great b/c my Monday started out as a stereotypical Monday! Glad I’m not the only one who gets some easy options together when called for!

  9. Can’t wait to see the Master Bedroom makeover! This week full of meals sounds great! I hope your back feels better!
