Menu Plan Monday - 2/1

This week, I'm trying to simply things a little. I realized last week that I've been to ambitious when it comes to cooking and juggling everything else that's happening in my life. I thought I would feel like spending more time in the kitchen, and I also thought I'd have more time to relax and cook - I don't. By the time I work and go to school, then get home to studying and housework, I just don't have the energy to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

I've been using my slow cooker once a week - now I'm moving up to twice a week with it. I'm also picking up some emergency quick fix meals for the nights when dinner plans fall through or leftovers don't go as far as expected - chicken nuggets and canned ravioli may not be the healthiest choices, but it'll be better than fast food.

Monday Lunch: eat out
Monday Dinner: slow cooker beef stroganoff

Tuesday Lunch: sandwiches
Tuesday Dinner: easy Italian chicken

Wednesday Lunch: slow cooker beef stroganoff
Wednesday Dinner: chicken and orzo frittata

Friday Lunch: sandwiches

Saturday Lunch: slow cooker baked potato soup
Saturday Dinner: breakfast casserole

Sunday Lunch: tacos
Sunday Dinner: chicken ricotta bowls

Looks like you have a great menu this week! I saw the Baked Potato Soup recipe on that blog, haven't tried it though but it sounds tasty!
