Meal Planning Monday ~ Girls Night In!


This week’s post is by Leah Kelley.

            I have an easy week as far as dinners go.  My husband, Derrick, will be out of town this week.  So it’s poptarts and chicken nuggets for dinner all week!  Ha ha – I’m kidding!  This week I’m going for easy meals.  My husband rarely goes out of town so this will be an adventure for me and the kids.  I stocked up on frozen pizzas a few ago and I’m so glad I did.  I’m also hosting Girls Night In on Friday!  I will probably need some girl time after several days of handling the kids solo.  Here’s what my week of meals look like:

Monday ~ No cooking!  We’re heading to my mom’s house for Halloween Trick or Treating and staying the night.

Tuesday ~ Parmesan Panko Crusted Chicken Nuggets.  These are so easy!  Cut chicken tenders into 1 inch pieces, dip in egg then roll in parmesan/panko mixture.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.  My kids love these.  I’ll serve them with sliced cucumbers and strawberries.

Wednesday ~ Crabby Patties.  My kids are huge Spongebob fans so I thought it would be cute to make them crabby patties.  I picked up some slider buns and will just make mini hamburgers and top them with cheese, lettuce, and tomato.

Thursday ~ Frozen Pizza Night.  My Father in Law is coming over to watch the kids for a few hours so I can get a little alone time.  My alone time is going to the store to pick up supplies for my Girls Night In on Friday.  What can I say – I love grocery shopping!

Friday ~ Girls Night In!  I’m having a few friends over for appetizers and cocktails.  I have no clue what I’m making.  I’ve picked out a few recipes but have to narrow them down.  Buffalo Chicken Bites, Blue Cheese Dip, and Bruschetta are a few on my list.

Saturday ~ 3-Ways and Cheese Coneys.
