Easy Family Meal Plan Week 33

This week's menu is planned for you! We have family pleasing recipes that include plenty of pasta, some fun salads, pizza dippers and more!

      I have some really fun things headed your way this week!  Tomorrow I'm sharing some fun fall cookies with you.  I even dressed a few of them up for Halloween in case you are starting to get in the spirit already.  Plus they are for a great cause, so I'd love it if you could come back by and check those out.  I've also got some fun ideas to add a few more veggies to your Labor Day and football watching menus, so look for that on Wednesday.  Then we'll round out the week with some fun no-bake treats.  So this week is going to be fun and delicious!

    Of course we are going to need to make some dinners along the way.  Here is some great dinner inspiration for you and there are a couple of salads in here that are hearty enough to be main dishes or would be a fun pot luck side for your Labor Day BBQ!  Without further ado, here is this week's menu:

     These Lower Fat Pepperoni Pizza Crescent Roll Ups from Joyful Homemaking look fun to make and eat! 

     This BBQ Chicken Pasta Salad from Jonesin' for Taste looks amazing! She has so many fun flavors and textures in there.  It could be a side or a main dish. 

    This One Pot Creamy Chicken Mushroom Florentine from Recipe Treasures looks like a hearty and easy dinner as well. 


     You know we love breakfast any time of day.  So I can't wait to try these Make Ahead Breakfast Calzones from New South Charm.

      This Portillo's Inspired Chopped Salad is perfect for feeding your Labor Day crowd.  It has enough meat and cheese to be a main dish but is also a really fun take and share side.

    This Crumbly Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread from Tastefully Eclectic is calling my name.  The cooler evenings already have me dreaming of fall and this is a great way to enjoy the flavor as well!



  1. Thanks for all the great ideas! The cream cheese pumpkin bread is calling my name :)

    1. Doesn't that look so good? It's calling mine too!

  2. Hi Carlee, it still feels like autumn is a long way off, but I am getting the urge to start to cook food again (until I get in the kitchen that is!). I wouldn't turn my nose up at any of these meals, particularly the pepperoni pizza crescents.


    1. It is still pretty warm here, but the evenings are starting to get cooler so there is hope! I'd happily eat them all as well!

  3. Thanks for all of these great recipe ideas. The chicken florentine looks so good. I will be pinning these.

  4. Hi Carlee! I haven't stopped by your blog in a while and am so glad I re-found it! These all look amazing; especially those breakfast calzones =)
