Easy Dinner Meals for the Week

We’re still waiting for spring to appear here in Maryland, so I’m continuing to add some warm comfort food to our menu plan each week.

This comfort food isn’t complicated, however. It’s perfect for busy moms that don’t have a ton of time to cook every night.

If you’re a busy mom (who isn’t??), feeling like a hamster in a wheel, menu planning each week does help take some of the pressure off of your schedule.

But oftentimes, we moms need more, and we neglect to give ourselves a real break, mostly because we’ll feel guilty when we do.

That’s why I’m so excited about the free webinar tonight entitled How Busy Moms Make Time for Themselves (4 strategies for ditching the guilt and making it happen) with Rachel Norman.

Rachel is going to teach us now to start off our mornings in a calm way (not frenzied!), discover personal limits and boundaries we ignore, understand why we feel guilty for taking care of ourselves, and much more.

You’ll want to sign up in advance for this webinar…it’s tonight at 7 p.m. ET.

Oh, and did I mention that it’s free??

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.

  1. Oh, Erin, I’m sorry to hear about all the things that have been happening lately. It really can wear you down. We had a few things come up recently that has been a little overwhelming to me too. I really feel for you.

    But like you I’m thankful to have easy dinners, so at least dinner is easy to get done. I hope this week is a better one for you and your family.

  2. Your menu looks good, Erin! I know what you mean about spring taking longer this year. We had snow accumulate yesterday. LOL – In April, that’s not common for our area. The good news is that it’s already gone and we’re supposed to finally have springlike weather starting tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it! I hope you and your family have a great week!!
