Weekly Menu No. 13

First, I just want to thank you all for sticking with me through this meal-planning project of mine; all the positive feedback has been fantastic.

I have to thank Rick, from the Yak Shak, for helping me stick with the menu. I might write it up, but he does cook the majority of these meals. Wait, does that make it his plan? Nahhhh, still mine right?

Anyways, this week kept me busy, but I made a list and headed to Wal-Mart to gather all the ingredients needed for this week’s dinner menu. Got it all home, unloaded the car and then realized I forgot a bunch of stuff. So I made another list, piled into the car and decided to go to Costco. I do not recommend this if you are on a tight budget. But on the plus side, I now have 212 Advil tablets, 3 giant bags of potato chips and 3 extra pork roasts.

Remember, I post my weekly list to encourage menu planning and to give meal ideas, not as a nutritional standard. You should feed your family based on your priorities and values.

What are we having this week for dinner?

Monday:  Stove Top Italian Chicken with Potatoes
Tuesday:  Beef Tacos with a garden salad
Wednesday: Slow-Cooker Root Beer Pulled Pork
Thursday: Turkey Crunch Casserole
Friday:  Crockpot Lasagna
Saturday: Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans
Sunday: Breakfast for Dinner (eggs, bacon, hash brown, and waffles)

Bonus:  We made 20 Breakfast Wrap.  My kids loved them.
Ingredients: scrambled eggs, tortilla wraps, and shredded cheese.
Directions: Once the eggs and bacon are cooked, spread them across the tortillas, then add the shredded cheese. You can also add salsa for extra flavor.

Bam, breakfast is served. Oh, and you can freeze it. To thaw, pull out the night before and then heat in the microwave for about a minute.

What are some of your favorite breakfast recipes?

  1. This is very useful for family of 3 or more, especially with kids. They need to eat good and healthy foods for their system. On the other hand for couple It’s a good idea to plan ahead about what to prepare for the week It make’s more handy and less stress for parents.

  2. Crockpot lasagna sounds so good. So Im might try it out. For breakfast we usually have pancakes or oatmeal.

  3. Lots of blog post about foods for Christmas. and this is very timely because I am looking for a new recipes that I will try. It makes me really hungry.

  4. I love to read meal plans because I so often run out of ideas and anything that can spark my imagination is gold. Spending today getting ready for the week ahead and may add Lasagna to the list. Sending the husband to costco because when I go I get all these fancy ideas of what we will eat for the week and $300 later I am home with no room in the fridge.
