The big hits from last week’s menu were Swedish Meatballs and Chicken Marsala. If you’d like links to those recipes, head over to last week’s post and click on through – they were really delicious and I’ve got two bags of Swedish Meatballs in my freezer I can’t wait to eat up! This week, my mom is here taking care of my kids.

Dan and I have our spring meeting with our remodeling peer group, The Rhinos, in Nashville this week. Joining this peer group, organized by the National Association of Home Builders, has been the the number one best decision we’ve made as small business owners.  We head to our group members’ home cities and learn all about their businesses, best building practices, and the behind the scenes mumbo jumbo of owning a remodeling / home building business.

Our twice a year meetings are fabulous for helping us grow our own business and I really enjoy the opportunities to travel without the kids. {I love my kids, but…} We always head to fun destinations {last spring we went to the Thermador Test Kitchens in Irvine, Ca}, eat wonderful food, drink lots of wine, and come back both overwhelmed and refreshed at the same time. I count my lucky stars that my mom takes care of my kids each time we’re gone.

This menu is for her. She’ll be cooking from Tuesday to Saturday while I enjoy food cooked by someone else at the most delicious restaurants in Nashville. 😀

Here’s my weekly menu / freezer cooking plan:

Breakfasts – 

Lunches – 

  • Hard boiled eggs, fruit, and veggies
  • Oven sandwiches {recipe coming}
  • Egg Salad
  • Left  overs

Dinners – 

  • Tacos – I normally cook up a huge mess of meat and stretch it with a bunch of beans. I make a lot extra to freeze and hope I can talk her into doing that,  too.
  • Ground Beef Stroganoff – I also normally make a huge batch of this too, and freeze it as well. It freezes just fine if you omit the sour cream and noodles.
  • Rotisserie Chicken
  • Wine Mushroom Pasta with Bacon by My Family Mealtime
  • Feta Cheese Quiche by Culinary Flavors
  • Pizza out

And that’s what I {hope} will be cooking in my kitchen this week. How about you? Got your Meal Plan Monday game plan on?
