{365} Challenge: March Meal Plan

Sorry for the delay!  In the past week Baby B has turned 6 months, started crawling, and had her first tooth break through.  Time has been moving quickly and I completely forgot to create the meal plan.  

This month also kicks off baseball season in our home.  That puts us out of the house and at baseball games and practices most nights of the week.  In order to avoid eating out a bunch, relying on my crock pot and fast meals becomes an art form.  My focus with my menu planning this month is to keep it quick!  This coming Sunday I will be working on prepping most of the meals that can be frozen so they are even quicker to make come the night I am serving them.

Go Royal Blue Rangers!

3/1: Buffalo chicken sandwiches (4 chicken breasts, a bottle of Frank's Red Hot Buffalo sauce, and a packet of Ranch dressing seasoning in the crock pot on high for 5 hours, then shred!)
3/2: Oscar Night!  Appetizers for dinner: BBQ meatballs, fresh veggies, hummus and crackers, and of course, "Red Carpet" Red velvet cookies!
3/3: Tonight is Bunco night, which meant that my mom babysat and brought the kids dinner.
3/4: Did you know today is National Pancake day?!  I will be making Potato Pancakes with applesauce
3/5: Slow Cooker Moo Shu Pork with fresh asparagus
3/6: Another rainy day in the forecast, so we will be warming up with Chicken Tortilla Soup, topped with avocado.
3/7: Lemon Pepper chicken with a salad
3/8: We will be super busy with Opening Day Ceremonies and a birthday party today so this recipe is great because I can prep it the night before and let it cook while we are out most of the day.  Slow Cooker Apple BBQ Burgers.
3/9: Breakfast for dinner night!
3/10: Sour Cream and Bacon Chicken.  Bacon is always delicious!
3/11: Taco night!  
3/12: Beef and Barley Stew (I still have some made that needs to be eaten)

3/27: Fried chicken (a Paleo version to keep it healthy with coconut oil and almond flour)
3/28: Chicken bacon sandwiches - an easy to fix to take to the ball fields!
3/29: Ham and Potato pockets - make a bunch and freeze for later!
