Classic-Healthy-One Pot Meals

When my poor kids return to school on Monday, they are going to be the ones to not have any stories of fun excursions over spring break.  Luckily for them, their grandma at least took them to the movies and the batting cages.  Otherwise, the whole week was pretty boring for them.  It did force them out to get creative though.  Our house borders some great exploring property, and Erica and her little friend Heather decided to make a Tee Pee with sticks and dried leaves they found.

So, as we ease back into a more structured routine, here is our meal plan for the week, including some healthy one pot dinners that will save on some of the dishes!

Breakfast Lunch Snack Dinner
Monday Whole Wheat Chex with milk and bananas Ham rolled in whole wheat tortilla with Baja coleslaw Pistachios and dried apricots Beef and Portobello Stroganoff
Tuesday Coconut berry oatmeal Gluten free mini pizzas with broccoli slaw Graham crackers with almond butter and bananas Chicken Enchilada Casserole
Wednesday Baked Omelets Tabbouleh and fruit Cottage cheese with blueberries Turkey Chili Pot Pie
Thursday Carrot Muffins alfalfa sushi sandwiches Carrot sticks with Laughing Cow Cheese Butternut Squash Gratin
Friday Egg sandwiches with strawberries Turkey Sandwich on dinner rolls with lettuce and tomatoes Apples with Peanut Butter dip Potato-Crusted Quiche

I have a HUGE week planned! I’ve got:

All before next Saturday.  You won’t want to miss a thing!


I’ll bet that they will have fonder memories of exploring and making up games than they would of any vacation. I so wish we lived someplace like this. We are in Phoenix, az. Not much for exploring in the hot desert.


I love your menu for the week. Thanks for some one pot dinner ideas,that is always helpful. Tell your daughter great job on the tee pee looks great. We start our spring break tomorrow and don’t have any exciting plans either. Have a good week.
