It is a crazy time with the holidays and all of the activities we have on our calendar. As a busy on-the-go Mom that means that it is time for me to get creative with quick and easy menu plans. We spend several school nights each week on the soccer field and every weekend at games. I am a true soccer Mom. I don’t miss a single game if possible and one of us is at every single practice which means menu planning is so important for me. I always include one of Peyton’s favorites each week. There is nothing he likes better than Spaghetti and Meat Sauce. It is so affordable so it is a go-to for easy menu planning.
My goal during soccer season is to prepare quick and easy weeknight meals that my family will love. With the holidays and soccer season easy is the name of the game. I utilize my slow cooker and look for meals that can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. By menu planning and prepping meals in advance I can save money and time in the kitchen. Every day I make a to-do list and try to look for the most convenient way to go about completing each item. I take the worry about what is for dinner by sitting down each Sunday and planning our menu for the week.
Easy Weeknight Meals for Busy On The Go Moms
Carb loading before a soccer game is important and Peyton’s meal of choice is spaghetti with sauce. I love that I can prepare gluten free noodles and it is a meal my entire family can enjoy. We also like to enjoy it over zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash too to incorporate more veggies!
