Busy Mom Menu Plan

Happy Monday! The weather is starting to feel like spring might finally be here to stay, so I’m excited to try some lighter meals on my menu plan this week.

Wooden table set with fork, knife and plate.

I’ve also opted for some super easy dinners this week in order to save some time in the kitchen.

Dinnertime is going to be early all week long, since my husband is working nights this week, so I’ll be cooking at the same time the school bus gets home and homework time starts.

With the easy skillet dinners I’ve planned for the week, everything should go a bit smoother (plus, the kids will be happy to have some of their favorites!).

As usual, my menu plan is Trim Healthy Mama-friendly. If you aren’t familiar with Trim Healthy Mama, head over to read all about how I became a Trim Healthy Mama and lost 35 pounds in 7 months.

Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

Breakfasts
Sprouted wheat pancakes, 1/2 banana, collagen coffee (E)
Fried eggs, sausage, berries (S)
Yuck Yum Bitty (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, sauteed zucchini and mushrooms or spinach (S)

Lunches
Leftovers most days
Big salad with tuna or cooked ground beef (S)
Sweetie on Steroids (E)

Dinners
Taco Night (ground beef, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, salsa…and tortilla chips for the kids) (S)
Hubby Lovin’ Chicken, broccoli (S)
Cabb and Saus Skillet, deviled eggs (S)
Sweet and Sour Chicken, brown rice (E)
Homemade Pizza with Gwen’s crust, salad (XO)
Spaghetti with Italian sausage (spaghetti squash for me and hubby, pasta for the kids), salad (S)
Eat Out

I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Table Cookbook and the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook. (affiliate link).

  1. Our family like tuna casserole, I make a cheesy version that is dairy-free for my family and it goes over well. Sorry to hear your family doesn’t love it as much as you do.

    I’ve made blender waffles before but totally forgot about them until I saw them on your menu. I’ll have to make them soon.
