Thrive at Five Meal Plan – Week #12 ~ A weekly meal plan for busy parents. This week’s meal plan features chicken chili tacos, a homemade Philly sandwich, a, easy cream of mushroom soup made from scratch, a 15-minute flatbread pizza, lobster mac and cheese bites and a yummy caramel apple cheesecake trifle.
Another Friday. Another meal plan. Yay!
I have to say that sharing these weekly meal plan posts has helped me immensely in keeping up with my own meal planning. It is easy to sometimes get caught up in other life things and meal planning is usually one of those other things we tend to set aside when life happens. Well, I’ve found (the hard way) that when that happens and I can’t plan my meals ahead of time, more often than not, my week becomes a train wreck.
It makes a great difference knowing exactly what to cook, when I’m going to cook it and that I have all of the ingredients at home to do so. Meal planning has exponentially improved my time management, patience and sanity.
My only hope is that these weekly meal plan posts are doing the same for you.
If you are new to meal planning or are looking to start meal planning, it can feel a bit intimidating. But, trust me when I say it’s not hard. It just takes time to adjust.

Now, on to this week’s meal plan.
I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of bloggers to share the weekly Thrive at Five Meal Plan. Our goal is to help you get a homemade dinner on the table quickly and easily without the daily battle of deciding what to cook for dinner. Every Friday, we will be doing a round up of recipes to help you plan out your meal for the week and also include a little treat or two.
