Monday meal planning

Meal planning can be daunting but I have to do it. I need to have a plan so I am not scrambling around at 4:00 when both kids start to have melt downs and decide on dinner.
I meal plan on Sunday morning and try to shop in the afternoon. 

I look through the ad and see what's on sale and try to plan around that. Then I make a list for snacks and pantry essentials that we might be out of. 

So this week the menu looks like this:

Turkey chirizo tacos
Marinated chicken and roasted broccoli
Pioneer woman meatballs 
Sante fe bowls with chipotle cream dressing 
Pita pizzas 

We always have a salad with dinner too. For lunches this week we will make spaghetti, cheese with lunch meat and peanut butter sandwiches. We have 2 lunch play dates this week so we will be eating out. 

How do you plan for the week?  I'd love to hear some tips to make thing easier.
