Meal Plan Monday: 1/13-1/19/14

Wondering why or how to meal plan? Read this first.

This week is a special week for our family as our youngest daughter is turning 7 on Sunday. Our house in is full birthday mode as we anticipate her special day. She changes her mind daily as to which type of cake she wants, the birthday meal she wants and what activities we will do on "her day". She helped to create the menu this week, hence the reason we're having a pizza dish twice.

Here is what we'll be eating this week:

Monday - Pizza Casserole

Tuesday - Skinny Orange Chicken over brown rice and broccoli

Wednesday - Easy Slow Cooker Chili (minus the ground beef)

Thursday - Fajita Chicken Burrito Bowls over Spanish rice

Friday - Chicken Stir-fry over brown rice and broccoli, cauliflower, onion and green peas

Saturday - Homemade pizza with fresh veggies

Sunday -   My daughter's birthday - meal yet to be determined :)

Grocery list:
  • 6 chicken breasts
  • 3 c. dry white or brown rice
  • 10.5 oz. can of Rotel
  • chili powder
