Meal Plan Monday


Woo hoo!  It’s Monday and I’m feeling GREAT!  That’s because my husband finally had 2 days off in a row now that the trial is done.  It was great to have him around again and the kids were thrilled.  We spend the weekend pretty much just chilling at the house catching up on stuff.  Since it’s Monday, I’ve gotta come up with my meal plan!  This week we are actually eating out more than usual because of different things going on.  Here goes:

Monday: Dinner out with church friends

Tuesday: Dinner at a friend’s house

Wednesday: Dinner out on way to see Cirque du Soleil

Thursday: Poppyseed Chicken, salad

Friday: Steak, broccoli with cheese, sweet potatoes

Saturday: Dinner out at the National Night Out

Sunday: Crockpot lasagna

Meal Plan Monday!


This weekend was crazy and busy, yet lots of fun!  We had a picnic to attend and then later Saturday night, my good friend had her baby!  A whopping 10 pounder!  He’s such an adorable and squishy guy!

Another busy week ahead as my husband got picked for a 3 day jury trial!  Given his line of work, we figured he’d be easily dismissed.  Nope!  I was so looking forward to him finally being off today, but instead, I’m back at it with single parenting.  It’s been a long 2 months of this.  There have been candy bribes, TV watching, and banishment to the great outdoors so far today.  I was really surprised he was picked since they also have a huge trial going on that should be finishing any day now that he’s been helping with, requiring lots of overtime.  Never a dull moment around here, but this mama really needs a break, and her husband.

Moving right along, it’s time to check the fridge and see what needs to be used up!  Here’s what we plan to make this week:

Monday: Steak, salad, broccoli

Tuesday: Thai Chicken, brown rice, steamed veggies

Wednesday: Pizza

Thursday: Grilled cheese sandwiches, chips, fruit

Friday: Chicken alfredo with broccoli

Saturday: Grilled Chicken and sweet potatoes

Sunday: Steak stir fry

What are you making this week?

Meal Plan Monday

It’s Monday again!  Last week ended up getting a little hectic so we didn’t have a few meals that I had planned on having.  Since I still have the ingredients on hand, I’m going ahead and adding those meals to my planner.  My meal plans may fluctuate again this week as I wait for my bestie to have her baby boy.  Time will tell!

Monday: Meatloaf, salad

Tuesday: Chicken from my Crockpot Quesadilla recipe over brown rice

Wednesday: Sour Cream Beef Enchiladas

Thursday: 3 Cheese Chicken Casserole

Friday: Crockpot Egg Casserole

Saturday: Hamburgers, cheesy broccoli, salad

Sunday: Breakfast for dinner!  Eggs, bacon, biscuits

Meal Plan Monday!


Whew!  After last week’s chaos, I’m hoping this week turns out to be much smoother.  I’m starting the weak out right by making my meal plan for the week so I can go grocery shopping!  Nothing worse than wasting food that we worked hard to purchase.  We recently bought 40 lbs of chicken for $1.69/lb through Zaycon Foods, so you’ll see lots of  chicken recipes now :-)  Here’s what we plan to make this week:

Monday: Crock Pot Chicken Quesadillas – Kids will have the quesadillas.  I’ll make mine lower carb by eating the chicken filling over salad.  YUM!

Tuesday: Homemade pizzas

Wednesday: Steak, sweet potatoes, salad

Thursday: BBQ Chicken, veggies

Friday: Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

Saturday: Taco Pie.  This was a huge hit with the family and they are requesting it again.

Sunday: Leftovers

What do you plan to make this week?  I’d love to see your recipes, too, so we can try some new stuff!
