Welcome to Meal Planning Sunday! I am so excited to bring this new series to my blog! This is a new way for me to keep myself accountable in the meal planning each week! And I hope it will help you plan your meals out as well! Copy my menu each week or create your own! Each Sunday I will be posting healthy and EASY meals that will get us all in and out of that kitchen as quickly as possible. As a busy Mom of two, I want to make these plans as kid-friendly as possibly! If you are on my email list I will be emailing you as well to let you know the new menu is up!
Not on my list yet!?
One thing I get anxious over is that 4:00 PM hour when I don’t have a clue what we are having for dinner. Have you been there too?
In the past, I would meal plan on Sundays, but lately, I haven’t been doing any meal planning. So I’m bringing it back!
Why not share that with you? Give you a little mental break from that sometimes daunting question, “What are we going to have for dinner?”
And my hope is that you too will share your favorite recipes and we will all be rock stars in the kitchen!!
Here we go!
Steak, Quinoa and Green Beans
I recommend cooking your steak to your liking everyone has a different preference. Are you a Rare – Well Done? I simply season once side of the steak with salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, and McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning. I put onto a hot skillet seasoning facing down then season the other side. Cook until your liking. I love the quinoa/brown rice from Costco. Perfect for any side. You simply partly open the package and microwave for 90 seconds. Easy peasy!! Green beans I like to steam and then saute the green beans with a bit of butter, onions, and garlic.
So after this week, I will probably leave Tuesday off the meal plan because we have Tacos’s every Tuesday and have since the Lego Movie cames out! My son said he can each taco’s every day of his life if I would let him. I’ve been making homemade tortillas here is the recipe I’ve been using. For the taco’s super easy. I basically just brown meat add garlic, chopped onions pepper, and taco seasoning. Top with your favorite taco toppings. Lettuce, Salsa, Sour Cream, Avocado, Cheese. get creative!
I’m excited to try this recipe! I have tried a few recipes like this but this will be the first time I will be making this recipe. I will be serving with baked broccoli and a side salad.
Thursday is supposed to be chilly here in Colorado so I thought soup would be perfect! I love potato soup! This is a super easy recipe and can be made in a Crock-Pot or instant pot! Do you call it a slow cooker or crockpot? I personally call it a Crock-Pot.
We usually have a frozen pizza or leftovers.
Saturday & Sunday
We usually do free range on the weekends. SO I never plan a meal.
I hope you enjoyed my first Meal Planning Sunday!
Have a great day!!

Great ideas! I love planning out all of my weekly meals – it’s such a time saver, & I find that it helps cut down on food wasted!

Thanks! =) I totally agree, it for sure cuts down on the food waste! Have a great day!
I’m all in on the slow cooker potato soup! Great meal plan!
Yay! Kris let me know what you think of the potato soup!! Have a great day!
This looks like a lovely dish for dinner! I need to start preparing dinners like this more often.
Thanks! If you need more ideas I have more recipes on my blog https://livesimplywithkristin.com/category/recipes/ and I will be doing new meal plans each Sunday! =) Have a great day!
I would like to be the type of mom that meal plans on Sundays but I just can’t bring myself to do it. With my work I just don’t have the time or bandwidth, but kudos to those that do! I agree it is a better method to combat the 4 pm what are we having for dinner? question. We do dinnerly food delivery service and that has worked pretty well for my family- all the food arrives with a recipe and all the ingredients. That has helped us do a lot more cooking at home.
I always try to meal prep whenever I can! These meals all sound super appetizing, and I cannot wait to try them out!

WOW these are look so delicious! Thank you so much for planning out simple meals – my week just got a whole lot easier LOL! I’ve got a huge bag of potatoes just waiting to be made into that soup 😉 And you’ve made me realize I need to eat more tacos!!
Sometimes I find it difficult to think about what I might want for dinner 4-5 days from now, but making sure I have staple items that can go many different recipe directions helps as well. Meal planning is a really great habit for both time saving and healthy eating.
What a great new week of delicious meals! My favorites here are your tacos for Taco Tuesday, and your warm and comforting potato soup recipe. Yum. Yum.
I always love seeing what others are cooking up!! I agree, always tacos on Tuesday 🙂 That slow cooker soup sounds amazing right about now too though
Great meal prep ideas! It can be so hard to figure out what to make for food throughout the week, so this is pretty helpful!
