Meal Planning Monday

I am going to start doing these a week late (if at all) so that I can make notes and remember what worked and what didn't. 

This week I tried 2 new recipes and  both were hits. So much so that I wanted to make sure that they were here instead of lost in all my pins on pinterest so that I can find them easier. 

Pioneer Womans Chicken & Noodle We have made this before and it is always good. We ended up having leftovers from the week before so we ate this for lunch all week. It was nice to warm up and enjoy some comfort food every day. 


Baked Ravioli This actually surprised me at how delicious it was.  I used Publix frozen Beef Ravioli. JJ & I both agree that ravioli is our favorite that we have tried so far. This recipe is really easy to make and with crispy cheese on top is A-MAZING! I had some for leftovers this week. I just put some more mozzarella on top and put it in the oven. Just as good reheated as it was the night of. 

Chicken Alfredo Roll Ups - The easiest, no-fuss chicken alfredo you will ever make, conveniently stuffed in the butteriest roll ever!
Chicken Alfredo Rollups  This was another surprise.  It is no secret that I am not the biggest fan of chicken. I have to have a lot of sauce or have it hidden in a bunch of ingredients to really like it. This one fits both of those bills. The recipe makes 8 and we at all of them up. I served these with sweet potatoes cut like fries. This is the first meal I have ever made that both kids ate everything on their plates and asked for more. JJ & I loved these as well. I think that next time I will double to recipe and have some for lunch for the week.  I don't think they will be good reheated in the microwave but in the oven should be great. 

Ham & Cheese Biscuit Sliders  I have made these before and they are great and easy. The kids love them because the honey adds a nice sweet touch. I am going to serve these with butter beans on the side for a nice well-sounded-ish meal. 

So, great meals this week. all that I want to make again!

Breakfast Egg Muffins

I saw this on a blog a few months ago and finally decided to make them for JJ & I to have during the week. This recipe is great because it can be personalized to each persons tastes. Mine can have more veggies and his can have more meat. 

These are just as good leftover. All you do is pop them in the microwave. They will last in the refrigerator up to 10 days. 

Healthy Egg Muffins filled with cheese, sausage and veggies - YUM! { }

Healthy Egg Muffins
Cuisine: Breakfast
A healthy and delicious breakfast option - Egg Muffins filled with cheese, sausage and delicious veggies.
  • 10 eggs
  • 1-2 tsp. seasoning of your choice. I use garlic pepper
  • 1-2 cups grated low fat cheese. I use co-jack
  • ½ cup lean meat, turkey sausage, ham, etc. We like turkey sausage
  • Optional ingredients: 2 green onions diced small, ¼ cup diced spinach. Any chopped veggies would be a good addition.
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. A silicone muffin pan or cups will work best for this recipe, but a standard muffin tin will work too. Just double your paper liners and spray well.
  2. Mix all ingredients together, whisking your eggs first.
  3. Pour into sprayed cups filling almost to the top.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, checking often. Some muffins might take longer, depending on how many additional ingredients you add. Eggs will puff up and look like they are over flowing. Dont be alarmed, they will set back down to normal size.
  5. These will hold up well in the refrigerator for 7-10 days. I put two muffins in a snack sized bag for the hubs to pop in the microwave each morning for a quick breakfast. YUMMY and a great start to the day!
