Ranch Chicken Kabobs

I am a little embarassed to post something so simple but I made these kabobs for dinner Monday night and my mouth is still watering.

So easy. So good. So healthy.

I sliced up some peppers, onions and baby red potatoes and tossed them all in a large bowl with a splash of olive oil and a tablespoon of Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning and salt and pepper.

Then I cubed the chicken and seasoned with fresh cracked pepper, sea salt and some garlic powder. Got everything on a skewer and fired it up.

While the kabobs were on the grill I also got together baggies with grapes, apples and more peppers (I like to dip them in hummus) for healthy snacking for the week.

I put some black beans in a tupperware container and got some cilantro and brown rice ready as well for a good lunch option. Chopped some radish and carrots for my salads and even made some ranch kale chips.

All this time Austin was the perfect little angel in his swing. Love it when that happens.

We have become pro’s at eating dinner on the fly (sometimes before bath time during an early evening nap and sometimes late after Austin is already asleep). It really helps if I have a game plan for the week though and actually saves us money because things don’t go to waste.

Here is this weeks dinner plan:

Monday night: Kabobs
Tuesday night: Burgers, no bun and side salad
Wednesday night: Crustless quiche with spinach, mushroom and zuchinni
Thursday night: Fish and roasted carrots and cauliflower
Friday night: Taco salad

Do you plan your meals for the week?

    We don’t plan it out down to the day but I do make a list of about 5 or 6 meals I will make before I go grocery shopping and only get what I need for those and any pantry fill ins. Sometimes we can get two weeks out of this just running out for fruit. Usually bananas since my girls think they need one with every meal. 😉

    I pick out 5 meals for the week and then decide on the day of what I feel like. Works great and saves soooooo much money!
