Menu Monday let’s eat clean everybody!

Menu Monday

Unfortunately for us we get to put a new roof on our house. So our money this year will be extra tight. With that in mind I had already made a decision to eat clean this year. That means very little carbs, lots of whole foods and protein. I looked at the difference between paleo and clean eating and think clean eating will work best for me. I’m going on what I already have in my fridge to eat. I have to clean out my fridge! Here’s my menu plan for this week. 

Monday: Vegetarian Goulash This has pasta in it. Before I add the pasta I’m going to pull some out for me and then add the pasta for the family.

Tuesday: Grilled chicken, steamed cabbage, mashed sweet potatoes

Wednesday: Steak fajitas on whole wheat tortillas, guacamole

Thursday: Time to use up those leftovers and clean out the fridge for the weekend.

Friday: Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

I’m going to try my best to not go to the store for the next week or so. I will need bread and milk and veggies soon though. Making do so I can get a roof…gotta have a place to live so got to replace that roof!

Did you happen to see my Easter Egg Nest Sugar Cookies? Or my Lemonade Pie? Great desserts! Don’t forget to download the groovebook app and get your 100 free photos! Have a great week friends!

Menu Monday use it up!

I’ve known for a little while that I have to pick up 40 lbs of fresh chicken today. So we have been eating out of our freezer so that I can hopefully put 40 lbs of chicken in there. It’s made for some interesting meals. It will make for some more interesting meals this week as I’m not going back to the store until this weekend. Here’s what’s on our menu this week. 


Monday: Meatless Monday I’m going to be making a spinach quiche but using kale from my garden instead of spinach.

Tuesday: Grilled Chicken Sandwiches, green beans, applesauce

Wednesday: Wednesday is often crockpot night because I’m out of the house until almost 7 with the kids at gymnastics. I’m going to be making a eggplant lasagna in the slow cooker.

Thursday: Taco Soup and grilled cheese 

Friday: We made it to Friday. We may very well celebrate ! with takeout pizza! Or oven fried chicken…what to do?? πŸ™‚

Menu Monday #menumonday #planyourfood

The day in and day out of making meals for my family gets old. Doesn’t it? Ugh. It’s the same question every night. It’s easier to be able to tell them what I’ve planned if I have already planned it. So here’s my menu list of dinners for the week. Please send me a lifeline with a new recipe or two if you have a special dish you are preparing. I’d love to hear about it in a comment. 

Monday: Meatless Monday as usual. I’m thinking bean burritos, quick and easy.

Tuesday: Grilled Chicken, steamed broccoli and corn on the cob

Wednesday: Crockpot Red Wine Chicken We are out until after 6:30 with gymnastics so it’s got to be a slow cooker evening.

Thursday:  Jambalaya Oh my I love some good jambalaya! 

Friday: It’s Friday, we made it to the weekend! Let’s celebrate by having pizza or simply chicken bites! We deserve a nice break. 

I hope and pray you have a lovely week filled with good news and great times!

My menus of the week #menumonday #dinnermenus

When my hubby gets paid twice a month we go to the store. We purchase as much of the food we can for the next two weeks. I usually spend around $200 so around $100 a week for a family of 5. I try to make sure that we eat meatless at least once and have a meal made around beans or soup once to stretch our money. Here’s some of my meals I’ll be making this week! 

Sunday: Tacos, homemade guacamole with white cheese sauce…YUM!

Monday: Meatless we normally eat a nice big salad but this week I’m going to make pinto beans in the slow cooker and corn bread. This will make my hubby so happy. I’ll post the recipe after we eat it. 

Tuesday: Baked chicken, baked squash and zucchini

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore My girl just got promoted to level 3 in gymnastics so she now goes for 2 hours of training and we don’t get home until late. So every Wednesday it’s going to have to be a slow cooker meal. 

Thursday:  Baked Turkey Breast (using my Turkey recipe from Thanksgiving), steamed asparagus, homegrown tomatoes

Friday: homemade pizza

Planning my meals for the week. More planning equals less chance of eating out. Of course with a family of 5 we do not eat out very often. It’s just too expensive. Our little babies are 16, 10 and 7.  Only the 7 year old eats a kids meal!  So no eating out for us. Here’s our meals for the week. 

 beanitos chips review

Monday: Big salad with lots of veggies, hard boiled eggs, etc. We try to do meatless at least once a week and usually on Monday.

Tuesday: Crockpot Meal BBQ chicken in the crockpot

Wednesday: Hamburgers grilled with french fries

Thursday: Homemade Veggie Pizza

Friday: Red Wine Slow Cooker Chicken 

Saturday: grilled chicken, corn on the cob, baked squash

What’s for dinner at your house? Do you find you cook more with a menu plan or does it ?


Menu Monday #menumonday #menuplan

It’s Monday and this week is VBS at my church. So that means I have to be on top of everything I’m doing. I don’t know about you but doing VBS wears me out! I love it and think it adds great value to the church and the community but it does tend to make me tired.  That means I need quick and easy meals this week. I’m not going to lie they will have to be fast. So, here’s my plan for this week.

Monday- First night should be ok. I plan on making this one pot wonder. It looks to die for!

Tuesday-Sonic…can’t beat half price burgers. Feed my whole family for $13 yes please!

Wednesday- I’m thinking crockpot. Crockpot BBQ chicken it is!

Thursday-Frozen pizza…so quick so easy so nice!

Friday-Sloppy Joes from scratch.  Here is my sloppy joe recipe.

I hope you guys have a wonderful week. What are you eating this week? Any new tips to stretch your budget? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Low Carb menus #menumonday

Today is my second week of eating low carb. I’ve not done perfectly but I’m down over 3 lbs and am ready to lose more. Here’s my dinner menus for the week. 

Monday is always meatless monday.  Asparagus quiche…recipe to come!

Tuesday Chicken Paprika in the crock pot, salad, corn on the cob for the kids. We are always on the go on Tuesday. Our crock pot saves our day!

Wednesday Morrocan Vegetable Soup recipe to come.

Thursday Hamburgers (mine wrapped in lettuce), french fries for the kids, green beans for me

Friday Low carb pizza for me, regular pizza for the kids. I’m not ready to try to make them eat low carb. I will probably make their pizzas on tortillas and let them top them themselves. It’s their own little mini pizza. They love that!
