2018 Monday Meal Plan: Week 20 (May 7-13, 2018)

It’s a crazy week after a crazy weekend.  Have you ever read that blog by Jen Hatmaker about being the worst end of year mom ever? She has competition.  And that competition is me.  I’m barely hanging on here surviving the last 3 weeks of 4th grade.  Feeding anyone anything is a challenge, much less 3 healthy meals a day.  We got a taste of summer break early here in Arizona, and frankly, we liked it.  I mean, obviously, ten days into it for real I’ll be ready for school to start, but right now, I’ve deluded myself into believing those slow easy mornings and long days will be amazing (side note: they won’t.  There will be lots of whining, begging for electronics, and forcible removal from the house to attend camp so mom can work, but for now, I’m living in a grass is greener dream land……)

And on that note, here’s what we are eating this week:



Making it easy on myself with Mixed Berry Banana Smoothies  and hard boiled eggs.


Skinnytaste Instant Pot Chipotle Chicken Bowls with Lime Cilantro Quinoa


Monday – Takeout.  What can I say.  I failed to plan over the weekend, and I’m typing this post at 6:02 PM.

Tuesday –  Chicken tacos or salads (build your own) using this Crockpot Chicken For Tacos, Taco Salads, Nachos and more!

WednesdayKorean Rice Bowls.  Yeah, I know.  We eat these too much.  But the point is, everyone actually eats them….

Thursday – Leftovers or takeout.

Friday – Leftovers or takeout.

Saturday – the good news is, in the business of this past weekend, I forgot to cancel my Plated Box this week, so 2 meals!  I didn’t even have to think of them.  Saturday is Cuban Rice Bowls.

Sunday – thank you again to Plated (well, actually thank you to me, for not remembering to cancel, and for paying for it)!  Pan Roasted Chicken with Warm Farro Salad.

I hope your week is amazing and that (if applicable) you are still capable of being a most excellent end of the year school mom!
