Weekly Meal Plan #39

Hello friends! I hope you are having a great week. We had doctors appointments, veterinary visits and lots of work trips making it a little more stressed then we would like it. Today, I finally feel like things are settling. This weekend is my husband’s birthday so I have been trying to get things done early so we can celebrate his special day. We are planning a trip to a local amusement park to celebrate. It’s weeks like these when meal planning really helps. Check out this week’s dinner planning ideas.


Easy Weeknight Dinner Ideas

Start your day with Desserts Required’s Banana Coconut Chocolate Colada Bread. I know that this is a mouthful to say and believe me, that’s just the beginning. Check it out for a flavor packed way to start your day.

Banana Coconut Chocolate Colada Bread

Kimmi’s Dairyland has a meal that is the perfect way to begin your week. Kimmi’s Chicken Caprese Pasta is packed with sun dried tomatoes, fresh basil and shredded mozzarella which are the icing on top of this wonderful dinner.

My Fearless Kitchen’s Slow Cooker Fajita Rice Bowls are a great way of devouring all of the tastes of fajitas, with less of the mess!. Win/Win!

Chicken Tetrazzini from Organized Island is just what you need as the evenings get cooler. Made with fresh mushrooms, chicken and Parmesan cheese, it is a comforting classic casserole.

The Shirley Journey is sharing her Cheesy Beef Enchiladas. You are going to flip for the easiness of this wonderful dish and do you see all that cheese? Fabulous any night of the week.

The Crumby Kitchen has a terrific idea with her Greek-Style Sausage and Peppers Sandwich. It’s a classic sausage and peppers sandwich that is made in one pan and then taken to foreign places with the use of dill, cucumber, and Feta Cheese!

I have a fabulous dessert option this week; Desserts Required’s Apple Cheesecake with Cinnamon Shortbread Cookies. The combination of baked apples and cream cheese work beautifully on the cookie crust. Say hello to Autumn!

Apple Cheesecake with Cinnamon Shortbread Cookie Crust is a combination of cooked apples, cream cheese, cinnamon sour cream topping and shortbread cookies.

Have a terrific week and feel free to swap the meals around to fit your schedule!
How was your week? Did you have a lot going on?
