Menu Monday- Week 19

I have to admit that I am not in the mood for casseroles- especially hit-or-miss healthy ones! I'm not really in the mood to cook either. This week I was craving lighter meals, mostly grilled! :) 

Derek seemed to be at the same place, so it was pretty easy to plan our meals! 

Grilled Steak
Squash and Potato Veggie Packs

Chicken Spaghetti (I LOVE Pioneer Woman's version, only I substitute one can cream of mushroom for cream of chicken and I sauté the bell pepper and onion so that it's not too strong for the kids!)

Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts
Grilled Corn
Sweet Potatoes

Tuna Salad Sandwiches (Not my usual dinner, but with Derek's new schedule I wanted to make sure I planned a few very simple meals so we wouldn't get overwhelmed!) 

Grilled Chicken and Veggie Kabobs 
Rustic French Bread

Chicken Fajitas- with whole wheat tortillas

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad (Derek and Anna-Kate can't get enough of this!) 

Tonight we had the grilled chicken kabobs and they were so good!! I made a rub for the chicken, sprayed the chicken with olive oil and then rubbed the chicken down before I put it on the grill. While the chicken was grilling, I glazed it with a mixture I made up! This was actually my first time ever grilling- I even had to fire up the charcoal grill on my own! I also used hickory chips to add some nice flavor. We all loved them so much! I'm pretty sure we will be having these a lot this summer! 

Last Friday I got my first taste of Strawberry Pretzel Salad- which is not really a salad, it's a layered dessert. It was so good, I had to make some for Derek to try! :) 

I plan on using my leftover fajita vegetables for an egg white omelet sometime this week too. 

What's on your menu this week? Comment below and leave your link!
