Kids out of school + Hot summer days = Express Meal Planning
This summer when I sit down to make my weekly or monthly meal plans I will use my new list of 9 theme nights to assist me in creating an express meal plan. Quick and simple.
I will rotate these 9 theme nights over the summer choosing a variety of meals from each theme to feed my family without a lot of work.
You too can create a Summer Express meal plan with these 9 themed nights.
Pasta night – Raviolis, Spaghetti, Lasagna, Pesto sauce, Chicken Fettuccine Alfred, Macaroni and Cheese, Tortellini.
BBQ night – Hamburgers, hot dogs, steak , chicken, rib. Be Sure to also roast your veggies and potatoes over the BBQ for quick easy cleanup.
Build it yourself night – Pizza, tacos, burritos, baked potatoes, hamburgers, salad, camp stew, waffle.
Salad night – Cobb salad, taco salad, grilled steak salad, chicken Cesar salad, layered salad, spinach salad – Use left over meats to create your own salad.
Dinner on a stick – Kabobs, hot dogs, roasted veggies and you can even serve your fruit on a stick.
Slow Cooker night – Toss it in the AM and forget about it all day. Use one the many recipes found on the 24/7 MOMS web site or google new Slow cooker recipes that your family will enjoy
Left Over night – Empty out the fridge and create a left over night this can also include the items in your freezer. 1/2 opened bag of chicken fingers etc.
