My husband does all the dishes in our house. Which is fantastic, except for when he's out of town and then not only do I have to make dinner, but I also have to do the dishes too.
So when he occasionally travels for work, you better believe I pick meals that use as few dishes as possible so that when dinner is done, I can get everything cleaned up as quickly as possible.
He probably wonders why I don't do the same when he's doing the dishes.
Welcome to This Week's Meal Plan
Planning my weekly meals is a habit I enjoy. Since I'm frequently asked by friends and family what I'm cooking for dinner each week, I thought it'd be useful to share my weekly meal plan here. Whether you're just learning to meal plan and looking for a real-life example of how this works or you're an old pro on the hunt for inspiration, here's a peek at how I'm feeding my family this week.
New to meal planning? Start here.
Monday: Green Chile Quiche
This is the easiest little quiche on the planet and, as someone who doesn't even really love quiche, I could eat this every day. Sauté the onions, whisk in the other ingredients, and pour it in the crust. Done and done!
Tuesday: Cream Cheese and Chicken Orzo Pasta
This one is a crowd-pleaser every time, although my girls prefer it when I leave out the mushrooms. And because I'm a nice mom, I sometimes do.
Wednesday: Creamy Green Enchilada Slow Cooker Soup
The house smells amazing and dinner is served in 30 seconds — all you need is to shred some cheese and you're ready to go!
Friday: Skillet Lasagna
Lasagna can be a huge involved pain. Or it can be as easy as this one-pan recipe. Plus, it's perfect for lunch leftovers on Saturday.
