Keeping Up With...Food (Menu Plan 4/13 - 4/19)

Wow last week went by in a blur of workouts and sick kids.  It was a crazy week where I was either running like crazy or cuddling my sick boys on the couch.  Not a bad way to spend a week.  I managed to keep up with most of my healthy cooking and eating, although on Friday I waved the white flag and had Adrian pick up dinner.  That was actually more because I wasn't able to go to the grocery store & didn't have everything I needed to cook dinner.  It was nice to give myself a night off.

The next few weeks are super busy as we wrap up the school year.  Pretty much every week there is a week long event going on in school (book fair, kindergarten registration, teacher appreciation, etc) and since I'm on the PTO board I'm either volunteering in the school or watching my friend's son so she can volunteer.  I'm thankful to have someone to trade off childcare so we can both be in the school so often. 

Expect lots of crockpot meals, salads or easy casseroles that I can make earlier in the day or week and just pop in the oven for the next few weeks.  I'm sure I'll be digging into my freezer meals as well.  I'm also hoping to cook/prep some today for this week.  I need to get back in the habit of cooking more on the weekends so we have stuff ready to eat all week.  I got out of the habit when we got busy on our weekends as well.  We have a few slower weekends coming up this month so I'd like to stock up now!

Here's what we're eating this week:
Monday - Pork Chops & Sauerkraut in the crockpot
Tuesday - Kale & White Bean Skillet
Wednesday - Leftovers or Freezer Meal for the guys, I'm going to a volunteer appreciation dinner at school
Thursday - Black Bean & Quinoa Salad
Friday - Crock Pot Sesame Honey Chicken over cauliflower rice
Saturday - Chinese Chicken & Asparagus Salad
Sunday - Parmesan Shrimp over Zoodles

Water Infuser Flavor - Strawberry, Raspberry & Blackberry

As always, I'm linking up with Laura at Mommy, Run Fast & Jill at Fitness, Health and Happiness.  Go check them out for some more yummy recipes!  Have a great week!


  1. Good for you for mostly keeping up with things when life got crazy! The end of the year always gets so busy here too. We're not quite there yet, but May will be insane!

  2. I know what you mean about life being crazy. Love the idea of slower weekends :)

  3. It's so hard to keep on top of healthy and yummy meals when things get crazy, this looks like a great menu to make it do-able! I definitely want to try the Chinese Chicken & Asparagus Salad- my husband refuses to eat salads but I can sneak in things like this that don't look like salads :)
