Meal Plan Week #47

It's Thanksgiving week! I'll be cooking/hosting a small Thanksgiving dinner this year and afterwards I will head out Black Friday shopping. This week's meal plan is pretty basic as I didn't want anything too complex.

MONDAY: Mini Pizzas
I'll make the dough on Sunday night, then we can assemble personal sized pizzas for dinner.

TUESDAY: Dinner Out or Order In
The girls are going to do a sleepover with cousins because they are off school the rest of the week so the husband and I are going to have a little mid-week date night :)

WEDNESDAY: Spaghetti w/Garlic Bread
I actually have a crock pot sauce with meatballs that will make this super easy! And J still has swimming tonight so quick and easy is always good.

THURSDAY: Turkey and all the trimmings!
I'll be making turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls and a cranberry pound cake dessert. The rest of the meal will come from my MIL and SIL.

FRIDAY: Leftovers
What's better than turkey leftovers?!

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Shopping to everyone!

Meal Plan Week #46

I pulled together a last minute meal plan. Sunday was too nice to not be outside. 60* in Indiana in the middle of November is like crazy talk. We went to the park, walked the dog and didn't think about that this week will probably be cold, rainy and miserable. But you didn't come for the weather report, so here's our meal plan for the week.

MONDAY: Baked Potatoes
Since I did two slower cooker meals last week that involved meat we have lots of leftovers to top our potatoes with. My favorite is BBQ pulled pork or chicken over your potato with cheese and ranch. Yum!

TUESDAY: Chicken Taquitos
I've made these previously, they were pretty easy to whip up and are yummy!

WEDNESDAY: Paninis with veggies and fruit
It's swimming night so quick and easy is the plan here!

You're On Your Own. Mama is off duty, find some food and eat it. :)

FRIDAY: Pizza Pasta Bake
A pizza and a pasta bake all in one! You pretty much take anything you'd top your pizza with and put it in with the pasta. We like green peppers and onions and top it with pepperoni.

Meal Plan Week #45

We've got 2 crock pot meals and a meal that will be made ahead of time. It will make for an easy week of dinners! So let's get right to it ...

MONDAY: Vegetable soup with crusty bread
I made this Sunday so all I will have to do is heat it up for dinner.

TUESDAY: Pulled Pork Tacos
We'll use half the pork loin in the crock pot with a jar of salsa tonight. Then tomorrow use the other half for a completely different meal.

WEDNESDAY: Shredded BBQ Sandwiches
Take the other half of your pork loin with a bottle of BBQ sauce and put in the crock pot. Super easy way to use up some meat that was on sale and gives you some variety in your meals.

THURSDAY: Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup
This is easy enough for the husband to make while I'm having girls night with the ladies at work :) Beer & tacos - great way to break in the new girl at work!

FRIDAY: French Toast & Fruit Salad
I'm not a huge syrup fan, so I always serve our french toast with fresh fruit so I can top mine with fruit instead of syrup. Yum!

What's for dinner this week at your house?
