Menu Planning Monday: recipe ideas for a busy week!

menu plan monday

My kids have activities EVERY single week night (including Fridays), which means I have limited time at home to cook before we start running around for the night!  For our menu plan, I’ve picked some favorites and some recipes that are perfect for throwing together on busy days.

SUNDAY:  Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup – Even though it was almost 100 degrees outside, I still made this family favorite because we love it!  And that’s what AC is for, right?

MONDAY:  My parents are taking me out for an early birthday dinner tonight!


TUESDAY:  Tasty Baked Tacos – This is always a favorite and you can throw it together really quickly!


WEDNESDAY:  Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken – We NEVER have leftovers when I make this one!

THURSDAY:  Quesadillas – I will be using canned chicken for these to make it quick and easy!


FRIDAY:  Baked Chicken Chimichangas – This is one of those recipes my kids BEG for…a perfect way to round out a busy week!


SATURDAY:  Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches – Another family favorite and you just throw all of the ingredients in the crock pot and go!
