Meal Pinning Monday

[What is Meal Pinning Monday?]

MPM is how I meal plan for our little family. I once spent a lot of time searching the web and my recipe books hunting for new recipes and ideas for what to cook every week. Then, Pinterest came along and made meal planning much easier for me. Every weekend I look over what I have pinned the prior week and decide what I would like to cook and make my grocery list from these recipes. MPM came about as a way to share what I am cooking, and to also see what others are cooking every week to hopefully get even more dinner ideas from other bloggers. If you don't pin your recipes feel free to just share what you are cooking.

Monday -  Stuffed Sausage Boats

Tuesday - Leftovers

Wednesday - Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Sweet Potatoes, and Bacon (with grilled chicken)

Thursday- Leftovers

Friday- Sweet Potato Gnocchi (with a parmesan sauce and sausage)

Saturday- PW Sloppy Joes with chips

Sunday- Eating Out
I've come to the conclusion that once a week I need to cook good ole unhealthy food. Last week was Irish Nachos, this week it's PW Sloppy Joes. It's a lot easier to get your hubby to eat well if once in a blue moon you make something less than clean eating. 

What are y'all cooking this week? Link up and share your menu on your own blog or write it out in the comments! I love getting new ideas for our weekly meals.
