Menu Plan Monday - Getting settled

Every time we move, it takes me so long to get back into a routine. Especially when I have to mix starting a new school year, new job schedule for my husband, and all the other 'new' things that come with a move. We have had company more weekends than we haven't, and it doesn't look like that is going to slow down any time soon. ( Not that I mind that part!) Oh yeah...a hurricane also blew through! I'm just sad that I wsan't able to keep up with my weekly menu plan. I was doing so good! I thought this would for sure be the year that I made it through the whole year! I guess there's always next year. We have no moves and no babies planned! :D
BUT - I have a menu plan this week. The one thing that tends to stay on track. I just can't walk into a grocery store without a plan, or we end up with a bunch of junk and no meals! >.<
 So, let's get to it, shall we?

Eggplant parmesan

(The only reason this is being made today is because my sister is visiting and requested it! I'm very excited because I love it, but nobody else in my house will eat it!)
Tacos with all the works!

( I am still sticking closely to my 21 day fix meal plan, so I will be having more salsa, lettuce, and tomato than cheese and sour cream!)

I came across this recipe on Pinterest yesterday, and I have all of the ingredients already. BONUS: It's a diet-friendly soup!)
Potato & Corn chowder

(Totally appropriate to have the day after a diet-friendly soup, right??)


(As you know, we have pizza every Friday. I haven't decided yet if I will make it, or we will order)
Fish sticks
Mac & Cheese

(Sometimes you just have to give in to the kid's requests!)

(Yep, more soup. It's cold here this week.I have a lot going on, and it's already made and in the freezer, just waiting to be put in the crock pot! Don't judge :) )

Breakfasts are pretty much the same here daily: eggs and toast
Sometimes I switch it up with oatmeal. On the weekends we have more time, and therefore, bigger breakfasts. The kids like sausage biscuits, home made egg mcmuffins, or bacon and eggs.

Lunches: My two oldest are in school, and usually request ham & Cheese. I have leftovers from the night before, and sometimes the littles have mac & Cheese. This week we have chicken salad!

Snacks: granola bars
              yogurt & fruit with cinnamon
              veggies & hummus
              celery or apples with peanut butter

I hope you all have an amazing week! I will be posting throughout the week on Instagram and I am always finding something new on Pinterest
This week, I am linking back up with I'm an Organizing Junkie!
See you soon!
