Menu Plan for the Week

Excited as I am for the Meatless Meals Freezer Cooking Challenge, I’ve not done one thing to prepare for it. We’ve been at soccer games all weekend long with not an extra moment to spare in the kitchen. In fact, I’m barely scraping meals together. Sunday lunch today was none other than tuna salad on tortillas (with mixed greens stuffed in), eaten in the five minutes we had between church and a soccer game. Shin guards and cleats were flying, let me tell you.

My goal is to (sleep and) hit the challenge hard on Monday morning, then just do a little at a time throughout the week. Since the plan is to cook for this week’s meals along with making extra for the freezer, you’ll see many of the challenge meals sprinkled throughout my menu plan.

    We’ve used our grill many times already this season! Just yesterday we did roasted potatoes on the grill and some naan to go with our homemade hummus! Yum!

    Mmmm your menu looks yummy!!! I will have to try the Italian Cream Cheese Chicken… it looks and sounds so good! This is probably a silly question with an obvious answer, but when you say cream, what are you referring too? :)
    Thank you!

    Cream is just regular table cream you can buy in the dairy section at your grocery store. :)
