Weekly Menu ~ Meal Plan

chocolate cheesecake stuffed strawberries

Another week down… HOW ARE YOU?? Even amongst a crazy busy weekend, I still managed to make a few treats and to prep a few meals for the week… Biggest hit this weekend was my Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries! I am still fine tuning the presentation and may play with the delicious center but I basically made a chocolate cheesecake filling from melted chocolate chips (with a bit of butter) and cream cheese and sugar and then filled some hollowed out strawberries. Easy, delicious and a huge hit with kids and adults alike!

I also made a cookie platter featuring my famous “Peanut Butter No-Bakes” (HERE) and the MONSTER COOKIES that I will share the recipe of this week…. Just say finding peanut butter M&Ms was a wonderful surprise!!

Today, after taking my oldest shoe shopping – OMG – who knew the 14 year BOY would be so much trouble/drama… although we really did have some GREAT quality time together which does not happen near enough because he is a 14 year old boy! Back home, I started by making a batch of “SAUCE” (HERE) and then we grilled a bunch of chicken breast and dinner was BBQ chicken (grilled with garlic powder and season salt – then basted with a honey BBQ sauce) and a large salad. We had a rousing game of whiffle ball and Nestle Drumsticks for dessert! WHY does the weekend ever have to end??? Wasn’t it just Friday?? It was like a Countrytime Commercial kind of afternoon/evening!

Also noting that after not being able to put my pre-grilled chicken away tonight because my fridge is too full and thereby cleaning out all the previous leftovers and having a sink full of dirty dishes at 11 pm… I realize I either cook too much or too often and we need to be better about using what we have… anyone else have this problem? Such a waste – UGH!!!

So – our week ahead entails a softball party, week long football camp, baseball practices, 1 game, a year end – and FINAL- Girl Scout party, and then for me, a lunch with some amazing blogging buddies! Needless to say the food needs to be ready and easy!

So this week I pulled a couple freezer meals and with the extra grilled chicken and the premade “sauce”, our weekly dinners include:

  • Chicken and Veggie Stir Fry (using the grilled chicken we premade, a bag of stir fry veggies and a bottle of stir fry sauce…. Easy, quick and YUMMMM)

 

  • Spaghetti and Meatballs (SSSHHHH – I bought a big bag of frozen meatballs…. I am POSITIVE the convenience will be worth it here!)

 

  • Balsamic Pork Roast – a freezer meal, perfect for the crockpot

 

  • Dorito Taco Salad – just a make your own taco on top of doritos (taco meat already premade)

Angel Chicken - MY Kicken' Chicken!!

 

So – what are you eating this week? DO TELL!!!
