Menu Plan Monday {Week of 9/16}

I haven’t menu planned in a while but I need to get back into the swing of things. If I don’t plan I have found that we eat fast food, something we eat for other meals (ie cereal, sandwiches, or waffles), or leftovers. Our current non-menu plan is just not working for me and I’m quite embarrassed to admit how often we currently eat one of the above items.

One thing I realized though is if I have activities in the evening I need something simple or something I can start during the day to have ready for the night. If Sinisa is not working that day I can put something more complicated on the menu for him to make. Here are the meals we will have this week:

Menu Plan {May 14th-20th}

Last week was so busy that we didn’t make anything on our menu plan but breakfast for dinner. Our week mostly consisted of eating out, which I’m embarrassed to say, but it was the only way that we were going to get any food. The week was just that crazy busy. I did get to go out to breakfast one day with my Mom and one day with my Grandma though so that was a nice treat.

Monday: Homemade Pizza Rolls from Tidy Mom

Tuesday: Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas from $5 Dinners

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Steak fajitas with mango salsa

Friday: Pasta with shrimp

Saturday: Chicken & veggie kabobs

Sunday: Leftovers

Menu Plan {10/31- 11/6}

My goal for this week’s menu was to use what we already had in our pantry and freezer to make the meals so we have to buy as little as possible. The only meat we have to use is chicken, ground turkey, and hamburger patties. {Click on pictures to be taken to the post they come from.}

Monday- Chili

(To warm us up after we come in from Trick Or Treating)


Tuesday- Leftovers

(For Daddy and the boys)


Wednesday- Burgers on the George Foreman


Thursday- Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken (w/ noodles and green beans)


Friday- Stuffed Peppers (w/ turkey meat)


Saturday- Penne Rigate With Broccoli


Sunday- Cream Cheese Crockpot Chicken

The only items I need to purchase for dinners this week are: a bottle of BBQ sauce, a block of cream cheese, 2 cans of corn, 2 peppers, and fresh broccoli. It took a while to put this week’s menu plan together but I think I did pretty good! :)
