Weekly Meal Plan with Grocery List #17 | Life as MOM

And so it begins: the dog days of summer. Things have adequately heated up. The kids are ravenous. All. the. time. And it seems like you just cleaned up lunch and it’s time to make supper.

This week’s meal plan makes it fresh and easy. There’s plenty of protein, a meatless meal, and a hearty portion of cool, refreshing salads.

One of the things that I love about these recipes is that one meal leads into another. You can grill up marinated chicken and veggies to eat one night and to stuff into quesadillas later in the week. Leftover slow cooked chicken can be made into chicken salad sandwiches or tossed into a bean and rice taco salad.

All the leftover salads can join forces for one big salad party near the end of the week.

You’ll eat well and keep a smile on your face. I like the sound of that. Don’t you?

  1. Having a hard time with the “6 onion rolls” in the ingredient list…which recipe does that correspond with? And what is an onion roll?


    • An onion roll is a sandwich roll/hamburger bun with caramelized onions on it. Feel free to use a different type of roll or sandwich bread. Originally it was on the list to go with the chicken salad, but since I posted this meal plan, I updated that recipe to use sandwich bread. I’m sorry for the confusion! I will go add a note to that recipe right now.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
