Easy Family Menu Plan with Recipes

We have another crazy week ahead. Well most of them are with 3 teens and a hubby who has to occasionally travel but I'm still putting out a menu plan and we'll see what I actually cook. Most of these recipes are with items I have on hand most of the time or do not require a lot of fresh ingredients. Do you have any go-to recipes on hand like that?

Most of the time I do not list a full daily menu here on my blog. I leave some of that to be flexible for our schedule and yours. If I list a main course I might not list other items that I will make with it. I always serve fruit and vegetables of some sort with my meals. Sometimes bread is needed. 

New Orleans Mardi Gras

Monday-Quick & Easy Jambalaya which gets served with a salad and bread & butter

Tuesday- Red Beans & Rice and New Orleans Beignets

I've linked up at OrgJunkie's Menu Plan Monday 


  1. I find it so much easier to get through the stress of the week when I have a menu plan in place. Your plan looks great.

  2. It is smart to have a day for leftovers in the plan! I always forget to do this and end up with so much food.

  3. Thanks, always looking for new quick and easy recipes to incorporate during the week!
