Menu Plan Monday!


 Gosh, it has been a while since I posted my weekly menu plan! I took the summer off from blogging, both here and on my photography blog. We were so busy, I just didn't have time for it. Now that school is back in session, I am playing catch up!
          Our menu for this week is pretty easy. With soccer, boy scouts, youth group, homegroups, birthday parties, and the ClickinWalk this weekend, we have a pretty full schedule in the evenings.

          Today, we are having Crock Pot Mexican Chicken.
I start with THIS super easy recipe from Pinterest. I add some Tupperware Chipotle seasoning (you can use taco seasoning, too!) And sometimes serve it with rice. The chicken shreds so nice when it is time to eat. We usually just pile it on to tortilla chips and have nachos. It is also good in burrito/taco form!

          Breakfast for dinner tonight!

I love breakfast for dinner! I don't always want to make a big meal in the morning, but by the afternoon, it is so much easier!

          We will be having eggs, bacon or sausage (or both!), pancakes or waffles, and biscuits. I also have a bunch of fruit we could eat, too. I am definitely looking forward to tonight's dinner!

          Pasta night!

Penne with homemade tomato sauce, and garlic bread. Super easy!

          Chicken Alfred on the Crock Pot.

Another Pinterest find, and a favorite of my oldest! Crock pot cooking is my favorite. I love how I can throw it all in, and have dinner whenever we are ready! All this recipe needs is chicken (you can even put it in frozen!) a jar of alfredo sauce and some broccoli!

We will be having this over rice tonight, since we had pasta last night!

          Pizza night!

Nothing new on Friday! We will be having some sort of pizza. Whatever we can find to throw on top! Maybe some fresh popped popcorn, then off to soccer practice and home group where we will enjoy this awesome dessert!

          This is the busiest day! We have a soccer game in the morning, a birthday party after lunch, and I will be going to the ClickinWalk in the evening! Who knows what is going to happen for dinner?!

On another note, if you love taking pictures and have some free time this weekend, you should try and join your local ClickinWalk!! It is going to be so fun!

          We are going to end this busy week with sloppy joes and fries. Maybe a salad to add some healthiness to it!

I will be linking up with I'm an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday! I'm hoping to find some new ideas for our menu!

What are you cooking this week?
