One week of summer vacation is already come and gone! Although we’re taking it slower with kids activities and commitments this time of year, I’m still making sure to plan out my menu each week to make meal time easier.
I searched Pinterest this week for a new recipe to try out, as I had run out of dinner ideas, and I ran across a casserole that sounded really good: Bacon Ranch Chicken Casserole from JoyFilledEats.com. It’s a simple dish that comes together quickly and my whole family loved it! We ate half for dinner one night, and the other half for lunch the next day. It’s definitely going into the meal rotation from now on, it’s that good.
I lost one pound last week and even managed to get in three workouts with the kids home from school (and driving one back and forth to Cub Scout camp all week). My oldest somehow caught a stomach bug late last week, however, so I’m not sure if we’ll be able to get to the gym much this week, so I’ll have to workout from home.
Here’s what’s on the menu this week:
Eggs, berries (S)
Strawberry Big Boy Smoothie (FP)
Trim Healthy Pancakes, cottage cheese, banana (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, sausage, berries (S)
Leftovers most days
Tuna salad on low-carb pita (S)
Cowboy Grub, brussels sprouts (E)
Bacon Ranch Chicken Casserole, green beans(S)
Spaghetti (zucchini noodles for hubby and me) with Italian sausage, salad (S)
Taco Night (taco-seasoned ground beef, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, on low-carb tortillas) (S)
Swedish Meatballs on riced cauliflower, broccoli (S)
Bangin’ Ranch Drumsticks, salad (S)
Eat Out (S)
I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook (affiliate link). We’ve been using this cookbook for practically all our meals for the past few months and we love everything we’ve tried so far.
