Meal Plan Week of 3/23-3/29

Wow! This week flew by in our house. I can't believe it is already time to post my meal plan. Since I started working at the end of 2013, it has definitely been a learning process as to what meals work best on days I work in the office. I try to do make-ahead meals, crockpot, or quick and easy dinners, but I don't always have time on the weekends to prep everything for the week.  I did a bit better sticking to last week's plan than the previous week, but did veer from my planned lentil soup... I didn't have time to make it the night before, so I quickly sautéed up some chicken sausage, shallots, and collards. It was sooo good! Here is the recipe:

Sausage and Collards

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1lb chicken sausage in casing, cut into bite size pieces (I used cheese and garlic flavored)
2 shallots sliced thin or 1/2 a red onion diced
1 large bunch collard greens, sliced into thick ribbons

1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat
2. Add shallots and sausage to skillet
3. Cook for 10 minutes, until sausage is almost cooked thru, stirring frequently
4. Add collards to skillet and cook an additional 3-5 minutes until collards are wilted and sausage is fully cooked.

I served with sweet potato fries, but rice or egg noodles would also work well with this dish.

Here you go, this week's meal plan:

Sunday: The Pioneer Woman's Artichocke and Spinach Pasta
*Making this for a pot-luck dinner tonight!

Monday: P.F. Changs copycat Chicken Lettuce Wraps
*This is Colin's pick for this week. My kids LOVED these the last time I made them, we did serve it over angel hair pasta, as my kids found the lettuce wrapping a bit tedious and messy. This week I will add some kale to the meat mixture and double the sauce.

Tuesday: Caramelized Onion and Swiss Chard Quiche, salad

Wednesday: Spaghetti with Kale and Lemon

Thursday: Roast Chicken and vegetables

Friday: leftovers

Saturday: Dinner Out

So there you go, I hope you find some inspiration in this week's meal plan. Make sure to scroll over the meal plan, as everything except the Roast Chicken are linked to the recipe. What are your favorite "go-to" dinners on a weeknight? I'm always looking for new and fresh ideas!
