Weekly Menu Plan (Week of 3/20/16)


It’s Sunday night and I’m back with a quick menu plan post. Did you miss my menu plan last week? That’s because for the second time in three weeks, I didn’t post one (oops!).

Last week, I had the good fortune of spending five days out in Phoenix, Arizona with my husband, my children and my dad. We took a special trip several years in the planning to enjoy Spring Training.

As you may have picked up along the way, we are a baseball family (even my youngest is already a fan) and we have a super sweet spot in our hearts for the Kansas City Royals.


It was such a treat to not only go to several games, but also to hang out at their morning practices. If you love baseball, it’s so cool to see your sports heroes up close and personal – their personalities really shine!


Of course, when you are in Arizona, you can’t miss out on the state’s amazing outdoor activities. All six of us (three kids, one grandparent and two parents) went on an easier hike on morning, and three of us (two parents, and the oldest kid) took on a more challenging hike another morning. Camelback Mountain is rated as two diamonds — i.e. “extremely difficult” — to the summit and I must say I concur. It was doable, but definitely a challenge!


With all that sunshine to soak up, baseball to cheer on, and mountains to scale, there was no menu planning going on for us!

So this week, we are easing our way back into the meal plan saddle. Here is what is on the plan for our week:

Sunday — Slow cooker chili with corn chips and avocados.

Spicy Cauliflower ready for the oven

Monday — Steamed salmon, roasted cauliflower (or maybe cauliflower rice) and salad. I really want to try this gorgeous vegan caesar salad, but I’m not sure I have the energy this week!

TuesdayAsian lettuce wraps (I’ll use ground turkey rather than chicken).

Wednesday – Build your own salad bar (pick your own veggies, protein and lettuce bed).

Thursday (For the seudah) — Egyptian Red Lentil Soup, grilled chicken thighs (hopefully it will be warm enough to do this outside!), roasted root vegetables, rice pilaf, bread machine dinner rolls.

FridayZoodles and meatballs (after a big seudah on Thursday night, I thought a lighter, more simple meal might be good for Friday night dinner).

What are you eating this week? I’d love to know!


  1. The link to the Lentil Soup doesn’t work. It sends me to the Asian lettuce wraps. Would you mind relinking it? Thanks a lot

  2. Hi can you give details for your salad bar dinner pls :)?
