Menu Planning Monday: Quick fixes for busy nights!

menu plan monday

Football season has started for us, which means that my son has football price for almost 2 hours three nights a week.  My daughter also has swimming practice 4 nights a week for an hour, so it’s some crazy times around our house! Since it’s 100 degrees outside, we don’t want “heavy” dinners, and I don’t want to wait until after practice and feed my kids at 9 pm either, so here are some quick fixes for busy nights!

SUNDAY: Spaghetti – Sometimes easy is best, but sometimes I forget that!  My family devoured the spaghetti last night, and as an added bonus, my husband cooked 🙂


MONDAY:  Slow Cooker Black Bean & Chicken Burritos – A SUPER EASY Dump & Go Slow Cooker Recipe your family will LOVE!

TUESDAY:  Pasta Salad – Perfect for a busy night.  It’s got veggies, protein, and more!  Plus, it’s easy to throw together!  Recipe to come!

WEDNESDAY:  Chicken Wraps – I grab some Spinach wrap size tortillas plus the pre-grilled chicken and a bag of Caesar salad mix.  I mix the chicken and Caesar salad mix together and fill the tortillas.  Super easy, not overly filling (it’s a football night) and the kids love it!


THURSDAY:  Slow Cooker Chicken Ranch Tacos – In case you haven’t noticed, I’m all about keeping it simple!  This is another “dump and go” slow cooker recipe!  We always have leftover chicken that I can use for taco salads or other things throughout the week, too!


FRIDAY:  Easy Cashew Chicken – We haven’t had this one in awhile, but it’s a great way to save some cash when you’re craving take-out!

SATURDAY:  Date Night – My mother in law is in town, which means my husband and I actually get a rare date night!  We will probably order kids for her and the kids!
