Menu Plan Monday 3/26 - New Mom Dinners

Wow, last week was such a crazy and amazing week! My newphew, Elliott William, was born on Saturday -- 4 weeks early! He is perfect and healthy, the cutest 5lb 10oz peanut you'd ever see! I was able to be there to witness his birth and the miracle of life God has given us. I have to admit, it was very strange for me not to be the one laying in the bed!! I am so excited to be an Aunt and I know my sister and brother in law will be amazing parents.

That being said, I offered to make dinners for them this week. So, I logged into Pinterest and made a New Mom Dinners board and repinned several meals that I thought would work good. I was looking for meals 1) I've made before and 2) that fit 9x13 pans so that I could split the recipe between two smaller baking dishes instead - one meal for them and one meal for us. I'm hoping this way I'm not making double dinners all week!

Bubble Up Enchiladas



Chicken Salad Sammies/Italian Pasta Salad (from a mix)
I'm omitting the pecans and cranberries and adding sliced grapes instead




Two Timin' Pasta Bake/Garlic Butter Rolls


Overnight French Toast Casserole/Breakfast Sausage



YOYO (You're On Your Own!)


Hotdogs on the grill/Leftover Pasta Salad



Slow Cooker Orange Chicken



I hope you have as great a week as I just had! God bless!

  1. Kelly,
    I'm so glad you found my blog so I could find yours. I don't know anyone having a baby at the moment but this is such a great idea, I'm storing it away for when I do. Love your blog! I'll be back for more. Have a great week.

  2. i bookmarked the orange chicken
    i am totally making it next month. i think i will use boneless thighs so it stays moist. and serve over rice of course with either snow peas/sugar snap peas or broccoli
