Happy Monday! Since we are back to school meal planning has to be done ahead of time, so I’m back on the search for those quick and easy dinners that can fit the weekday demands. Insert being healthy and fitting for a picky kid whether by adapting the recipe I find or just making it as is. Today I thought I’d share a few recipes that caught my eye and are on my weekly meal plan list.

These are recipes I haven’t tried. I’ll be sure to report back to you if I adapted it, how I thought it fit into our meal plan and if we gave it a thumbs up or shrug. I came across a few recipes and this is how I am going to use them this week. Save the recipes for yourself, add the recipes to a meal plan, mix and match to your meal plans, substitute items or just save/print meal plan to use later. Any way you use it I hope it saves you the stress of searching out recipes and leaves you more time for helping with homework, crafting or other activities!

Meal Plan Monday Recipe List Week

To make things easier I am numbering the meal plans in order to keep some as-semblance to them. I will make a page for them to be easily found. If you are new here I typically have a Meal Plan or Meal Plan Recipe each Monday. You can use the search for previous Meal Plan Recipes! Be sure to subscribe or follow on Facebook so you don’t miss out!

If you have recipes you love that are easy and think I would enjoy leave me a link in the comments, if you are a blogger share your link to a specific recipe in my weekly link-up on Friday’s Inspiration Spotlight posts.
