Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday! Got your menu plan ready for the week? If not, then feel free to copy mine ๐Ÿ™‚ Having a menu plan for the week makes meal time so much easier, especially on the days you don’t want to cook.

Get a jump start on your week by making a menu plan!

So last week was the craziest week for us in terms of schedule…we had something to do every night of the week, and most nights, we had two things, with my husband taking one kid to one event, and me taking another kid to a second event. It’s a miracle we made it through, and an even bigger miracle that we made it through without eating out.

This week is much, much less busy, so I’m taking a bit more time with dinners. It’s also a bit cooler this week, so I’m going to use the oven once or twice, since it won’t heat up the kitchen too much.

I’m happy to report that last week I lost those 4 pounds that I had gained the previous week. Getting back to the gym more regularly now that the kids are in school has helped, plus it’s easier to stay on plan when I’m eating by myself ๐Ÿ™‚

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:

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.

  1. Those peachy oatmeal muffins sound good. We had apple scones over the weekend and they were so good. I also bought cottage cheese for myself. The rest of the family can’t eat it but I enjoy it every once in a while.

    I hope you have a great week Erin!
