So Sunday night, as we were winding down for the night, I sat down, browsed my Pinterest "Yummy" board for some inspiration for meal ideas and away I went!! I literally clicked on one recipe, which led me to a whole bunch of other ideas for the week...don't you love when that happens?? It's like hitting the Pinterest Jackpot! I am now addicted to this website: Spry Living. So many great, healthy, yet easy recipes. I will definitely be going back for more!
I really wanted to change things up, but also keep them light and easy since the last thing I want this time of year is to be cooped up, slaving over the stove or oven when it is too beautiful to not be outside! I also wanted meals that wouldn't weigh me down, leaving me feeling like a stuffed chicken, when I know I will have to be chasing my son around the yard or the park afterwards!
So, here is what I came up with, and I must admit, if last night's meal is any indication as to how good the rest of the week is going to be, we are in for a real treat!
*Note, I am making these recipes as simple as possible by using pre-minced items when possible, just to save on time!
Monday: Beef Lettuce Wraps
|These were literally so easy to whip up, and the hubs absolutely LOVED them!|
Tuesday: Mojito Grilled Fish Tacos
Wednesday: Summer Vegetable Stew (I'm doing this in the crockpot because Wednesdays are our crazy busy days)
Thursday: Ginger Turkey Stir Fry
Friday: Mango Chicken Lettuce Wraps
So that's what's on the menu for this week! I hope that I may have inspired you to do a little meal planning as well, to take the stress of "what's for dinner?" off your plate!
Do you have any recipes that are your family's faves? I am always looking for new and easy meals to whip up for my guys, and I would love to hear what you and your family love!
Until next time...
