Meet the Sullivans: Menu Monday 3/26

Menu Monday 3/26

Happy Monday morning! We had what I would now call an eventful weekend for us. We took Owen to my mom's to be babysat while we went out to celebrate our friend's 30th Birthday at her fancy hat themed party (I really wish I had taken more pictures!) and made it out to see The Hunger Games while Owen stayed home with Keith's mom Barbara. Anytime we make it out of the house with or without the little guy there is a whole big production and a lot of planning that goes into it.
After all that fun we are happy to not have much on our schedule for today. We're going to enjoy hanging out at home with the little guy and catch up on some things around the house. I have the week's menu all planned out with four reoccurring favorites and two new recipes this week, so the big event of my day will be doing the grocery shopping for the week!

Kevin's Healthy Caesar Dressing {Meet the Sullivans} - So simple and so good! I'm going to use the blender to make enough to last us through 2-3 side salads this week. When I have the time I prefer to make my own dressing because it just has so much more flavor!
Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches {Meet the Sullivans} - I love making these sandwiches in the slow cooker because all you need to do it put the chicken in directly from the freezer, no need to trouble yourself with defrosting, and add BBQ sauce. I'm going to use the extra chicken the next night for the pizza I have planned.
BBQ Chicken Pizza - I've made a BBQ chicken pizza before inspired by the Pioneer Woman and CPK and this time I'm going to try making it with the chicken from the slow cooker and a few other extras. We'll see how it goes!
Pasta with Shrimp and Herbed Cream Sauce - I'm taking two recipes and combining them. The first one I've tried and loved (please check it out here: Keeping Up with the Joneses) and the other is a Giada De Laurentiis recipe.
Beef and Cheese Foldover {Keeping Up with the Joneses} - We really enjoy this easy dinner recipe. Its really just another way to eat tex mex tacos! I've been craving it for a while, but I have gotten around to putting in on our menu again until this week.
Slow Cooker Beef Stew with Potato Dumplings {Meet the Sullivans} - A fun twist on your standard beef stew. The gnocchi makes this absolutely delicious!
I hope you all have a great start to your week! If you'd like to see how some of last week's recipes turned out click here.
