We’re starting another busy fall week! Please allow me to take some of the stress off by sharing with you my Quick, Easy, and Kid-Approved Meal Plan for the week! As always, it includes a breakfast suggestion, lunch suggestion, appetizer suggestion {this one is perfect if you have a fall party coming up!}, and then a dinner recipe for each evening, along with two side dish suggestions and a yummy dessert!

Let’s get to this week’s meal plan!!

Breakfast​ ​Suggestion

French Toast – French Toast is always a winner- plus it is easy to make a big batch at the beginning of the week and eat on it all week long!

Lunch​ ​Suggestions

English Muffin Pizza Lunchbox Idea Again, these lunchbox ideas are a homeschool mom’s sanity saver on those busy homeschooling days! Plus- kids think they are so fun!

Appetizer​ ​Suggestion

Frito Corn Salad  AKA- Heather’s favorite appetizer ever!

Main​ ​Dish

Monday – Chili Tater Tot Casserole.   It doesn’t get easier than this…and your kids will love it! Sometimes I even slice up some hotdogs and add to it. Yeah, not the most healthy thing in the world, but it’s tasty every now and then.

Tuesday – Orange Ginger Cornish Hens. This one is one that can be used as a “fancy” dinner option when having guests over, but it’s also quick and easy enough to do on a weeknight!

Wednesday – Slow Cooker Creamy Buffalo Ranch Shredded Chicken – This easily tops the list of one of our family’s favorite recipes. I like to double the recipe and use the leftovers to make Buffalo Chicken Nachos for lunch!

Thursday – Crock Pot Taco Pasta This slow cooker meal combines everything you love about pasta with everything you love about tacos! Double score!

Friday – Beef Casserole. My husband’s grandmother is English and this is a recipe we learned about from her. We like to serve it over white rice.

Saturday – Crockpot French Onion Chicken  If you love French Onion Soup on a chilly fall evening, you’ll love this filling dinner recipe even more!

Sunday – Taco Pie –This is a fun family meal that everyone is sure to enjoy!

Side​ ​Suggestions

Herbed cheese tomato flatbread

Popa’s Mashed Potatoes

Dessert​ ​Suggestion

Strawberry and Cream Cake Recipe
