Menu Plan Monday: Week of April 27, 2015
Link love and this week’s Menu Plan Monday including baked falafel, rosemary-roasted cauliflower, chicken burgers, and salmon sticks!
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! We spent ours visiting friends in Baltimore, which was tons of fun for the kids. We visited the national aquarium, saw a wedding in the inner harbor, and the girls had their first sleepover with friends!
In case you missed it, last week was the April Recipe ReDux reveal, which was all about spring cleaning our pantries. I shared my recipe for Peanut Soba Noodles, which is by far one of my family’s favorite recipes and appeared to be a fan fave as well!
Don’t forget to check out the other ReDux recipes, as well as some I share below in my Link Love for the week. I even have some of them in this week’s menu plan!

Yes yes! You will love my chicken burgers!
Thank you Rebecca! I’m excited to try them! I have a bunch of zucchini leftover from last week, so figured i could sub it for the spinach. Hope it turns out just as good as your original recipe!
I should give those peanut noodles a try. My kids will happily eat lots of veggies when they’re in a stir fry or noodle dish. Looks like a great recipe!
If your kids are anything like mine, they will love it!! Hope you give it a try and everyone enjoys it!
Thanks for sharing my breastfeeding post!! Your weekly menu looks delicious as always!
You’re most welcome – it’s such an important topic and you provided great tips! Thank you!!
Your weekly menus always look so delicious! Anxious to try the Fennel, Beet and Parsnip Puree!!
Thanks so much Erin! I’ll let you know how it is!
This is a great idea, Love your weekly menu!
Thanks so much for stopping by Mary!
I want those peanut soba noodles! Thx so much for including my black rice & radish salad in your menu this week – hope you and your family enjoy!
🙂 make them!! I’m excited to try your salad. Subbing brown rice, but hopeful it will come out just as good!
Even though I’m a beef gal all the way you have me convinced with those chicken burgers. I’ve been craving a non-beef burger! And NO, I’m not pregnant… [that’s what I told my husband lol].
haha…I get cravings for things all the time and am definitely not pregnant!! i haven’t tried the chicken burgers before, but they look good. I’ll let you know how they are!
Great menu plan for the week! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Great meals! Cauliflower and raisins in a favorite duo in this house, and I love your addition of the rosemary. That’ll definitely be happening next time the cauliflower goes on sale (it’s obnoxiously expensive here)! Cheers.
Thanks Heather! I totally agree with you to wait until it’s on sale. I only buy it if it is, or at Trader Joe’s!! Hope you enjoy it when you get a chance!
Can’t wait to try those falafels as well! Love your menu plans 🙂
thank you!!! You should definitely try them – they were quite a hit!
Loving your menu this week! I’m going to have to take a peek at that falafel recipe 🙂
Thanks so much Alyssa! Enjoy!
