Menu Plan Monday, Family Picks

Menu plan with recipe links


This week I’ll be making a couple of new family favorites, glazed pork chops and easy sesame chicken. Both of these recipes are easy to make and our family loves them. I’m so glad I found them over at Budget Bytes.

My daughter requested enchilada shells and chili cornbread for dinner this week.

My son wanted mini calzones, so those are on the menu too.

We will be having all of those dinner this week. It’s really nice to have the kids help me pick out ideas for our meals. 

If you are having a hard time coming up with ideas for your meal plan, try asking your family what they would like to have for dinner. When everyone in the family picks a meal to make, it’s easy to fill the meal plan for the week. 

I know each person in our family thinks of something different so it helps us to have more variety in our meal plans. 

Hopefully you can get your family to help with the meal planning too. Although sometimes I do get, I don’t know for an answer.

This whole wheat pancake recipe is easy to make and healthy too. It doesn’t contain eggs or oil. You can make it dairy free by using almond milk or another non dairy milk. It’s a great weekend breakfast but fast enough to be made on a weekday too. Even though these pancakes are made with whole wheat, they are light and fluffy. Come see what the secret is to making them fluffy instead of heavy and dense.
