30 Minute Meals - Menu Plan Monday #7

Monday, November 2, 2015

Do you have a hard time getting dinner on the table after a long day of work or school?  Or maybe you spend a lot of time running the kids to all their after-school programs and when you get home everyone is hungry and wanting something to eat right away?  I have plenty of days like that and that's why this week's Menu Plan is all about 30 minute meals.

This week I'm concentrating on getting dinner on the table QUICK. I'm sure we all have busy schedules with school, work and especially after school programs.  This is why I'm so happy we have our menu plan to help every week to make sure we have good meals on the table every night for our families.

Here are my selections for this week that will help you have dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less...

I hope you all had a great weekend.  We did something different this weekend and went to our very first tailgating party at the university where my hubby works with the ROTC department.  We also did a little shopping and then home just in time for the trick or treaters to start arriving.
If you're struggling with getting meals together and on the table every night, I suggest you start planning out your meals.  Get the kids involved with the planning also!  Have them pick a meal one night a week.  And make sure they know they need to pick a healthy meal that includes vegetables. Make it fun for them!

We don't eat a lot of pork in our family, but this recipe looks really good
and it's ready quick.  Add some buttered noodles and a vegetable and dinner is ready...

Cheesy Chicken Stuffed Peppers from Creative Juice 

I love using leftover chicken to create a completely different meal.
That's what this recipe does!  AND it looks amazing.  All you need is a 
tossed salad and dinner is served...

Easy Chicken Enchiladas from Walking on Sunshine

My contribution to our weekly menu this week is this recipe for 
Easy Chicken Enchiladas.  Key word, EASY.  Just pick up a rotisserie chicken
from the grocery store on the way home from work and dinner will be ready in 
30 minutes or less.  My family loves this meal...

Beef Noodle Stir Fry from Damn Delicious

The easiest stir fry ever! Add your favorite veggies if you don't like 
the ones the recipe suggests.  Either way, dinner is ready again in under 30 minutes...

Mini Margherita Pizzas from Happy Food Healthy Life

This is a really quick meal to put together and it's healthy for you.
We love pizza and have it weekly...usually every Saturday night.
Pizza is a great meal.  You can add tons of vegies on top of the pizza and 
then add a tossed salad on the side...

Don't forget to follow along on Pinterest!

I have a board just for Menu Plan Monday for you to check out
and get great ideas from every week.
