Arggg, I’m back from my month at my mom’s house in Florida. We had a great time. We left because of tropical storm Debbie rolling in. The waves there were crazy at the beach.  Now it’s time to get back to cooking and cleaning my house! Here’s what we’re eating this week.


Monday Meatloaf made with ground beef and turkey sausage mix, onions, spices. cooked in a ring so it cooks faster. Carrot sticks, green beans.

Tuesday Zucchini Au Gratin, salad, fresh sliced tomato

Wednesday Dinner at Church (yay for not cooking!)

Thursday Baked Chicken, cucumber dill salad,  peaches

Friday Taco soup using ground turkey

I do love planning…most anything.  I’m most excited about the cucumber dill salad and the zucchini au gratin this week. What’s on your menu for the week?

Last night was my son’s play. He was Johannes Brahms and it was so cute. So on Monday all we did was have clean out the fridge night for dinner. It’s nice to do this so you can get rid of/eat your leftovers.

Tuesday- Spaghetti with ground turkey and parmigiana reggiano, green beans

Wednesday- Big salad from our garden. Kale, butter lettuce, carrots, green onions, hard boiled eggs and some turkey

Thursday- Cajun Bean soup

Friday- Homemade pizza night

Weekly Menu planner

Here’s what we are planning for the week.

Monday Crockpot Pork Reuben Sandwich

Tuesday Ground Turkey Tacos with guacamole

Wednesday Chef’s Salad

Thursday Homemade macncheese, steamed cabbage, carrot sticks

Friday BBQ chicken, broccoli, corn

What do you guys do for the weekends when you have to cook so many meals? We usually do tuna fish sandwiches, grilled cheese, soup, breakfast for dinner, etc. Any new menu ideas for me? Please…I’m begging here. I need some new dinner ideas. Share!

Menus for the Week

Here’s the menu I have decided to cook for the week. I do menu plan because it requires me to go through my pantry and see what I have and what needs to be used. I believe it is a big time saver as well as a money saver.

There are lots of staples that I do keep on hand so that it’s always available for a meal. Things like crushed tomatoes, black beans, fresh garlic, cheeses, ground turkey, chicken, whole wheat noodles and eggs. Then the baking supplies like flour, baking soda, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. For produce I usually have salad, cabbage, fruits, squash, asparagus, avocados, broccoli, green beans and corn. These are the things I always try to have on hand.

If you’ve never planned a menu for the week try it. It will save you so much time and money from not going out to eat and using up items instead of throwing them away. The only day I expect to have left overs are Wednesday and Friday. So I planned another chicken meal on Thursday to use up the rotisserie chicken in another way. Friday’s pizza will end up being breakfast of lunch for the kids over the weekend.

Menu Plan this week:

Monday Meatless Monday Baked ziti, green beans and salad

Tuesday Sloppy Joes, french fries and sliced pears

Wednesday Rotisserie (or baked) whole Chicken, buttered noodles, cabbage

Thursday  Chicken & black beans tacos with guacamole

Friday Cheese and Pepperoni Pizza

This is the meal plan for this week. I’m thinking of making this an every week occurrence so that I will always have my meals planned out. If this helps you plan your meals let me know. If you want a recipe comment below and I’ll try to get it for you! Have a great week!
