It is week 5 of meal planning, I am such a pro now! 😉 Last week was Spring break, so I kept it pretty simple… You can see the meal plan for week 5 by clicking HERE. It was so nice to have a week to play with the kids and everyone was healthy too! Usually there is one kid sick during Spring break, but we lucked out this year! We had playdates three out of the 5 week days and Brian took off to spend Friday with us and it was a gorgeous 70 degree day. The weekend and next week will bring chilly weather again, boo!
I have included some photos from last weeks meals at the bottom of this post, but I wanted to mention that the Cilantro Lime Baked Shrimp, recipe HERE was AWESOME, AWESOME and AWESOME!
Menu Plan for Week of March 23, 2014:
Sunday – Imo’s Pizza
Every other week we order Imo’s Pizza for our movie night. I think we are going to watch Logan’s Run this week, it came out in 1976 and I remember watching it with my Dad and brother… I hope the kids enjoy it, I know I am looking forward to seeing it again! Brian has never seen it! Have any of you???
Monday – Pancakes, Eggs & Bacon
I love doing breakfast one day of the week! Brian is really good with breakfast, so he may head this one up!
Tuesday – Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings with Salad, recipe HERE
I made this the FIRST week as a sahm and we all LOVED it and Brian has asked for me to make it again… so, it is definitely on the list for this week!
Wednesday – Tacos
Since both kids LOVE tacos, I make these every other week, no questions asked.
Thursday – Grilled Cheese with Salad
Brian has a happy hour this night and the kids will be with their Dad for a couple of hours, so I am cooking for one and I want a grilled cheese! I am going to make it with 1 slice of Velveeta and 1 slice of American cheese… yum! And, with a small salad with maters and cucumbers!
Friday – Easy Pasta Bake (from freezer stash), recipe HERE
I have one easy pasta bake left in my freezer stash and it is the one with the Vodka sauce, should be tasty! I am sure I can talk Brian into making some homemade rolls to go with it!
Saturday – Eat Out (going to see Divergent, Five Star tickets!)
Have you seen Divergent yet? I can not wait to see it! We are planning to get Five Star tickets, so we’ll eat at the theater with our feet up in the heated seats! Oh, yeah!
Dessert of the Week: Box Brownies

SO, the winning meal from last week that I thought was totally and completely over the top delicious was the Cilantro Lime Baked Shrimp, recipe HERE! This photo pretty much sums up how delicious it was:
