Weekly meal plans and Monday dinners

Posted October 19, 2015

Here's the place to share your meal ideas for the evening, post where you bought the ingredients frugally and even share a recipe if you would like. If you need some inspiration for your own dinner tonight, this may give you some helpful ideas.

What's on your menu tonight?

Our meals this week include:

Monday: Baked salmon, garlic bread, homemade veggie soup

Tuesday: Cheese ravioli alfredo, broccoli florets

Wednesday: BBQ chicken in the slow cooker, rolls, corn and salad

Thursday: Homemade pizza with HT pizza dough (on sale through Tuesday), mushrooms, red peppers and black olives (and maybe some leftover chicken), salad

Friday: Not sure yet. My brother and niece will be visiting from out of town this weekend and I'm not sure what the dinner plans are for Friday - Sunday. But I am sure that it will be wonderful to see them and to spoil my precious niece!

    Ascherer, I hope you have a wonderful time with your Momma! :)

    Everyone's menus sound good! Raesmom, I will never think of Walmart the same way again after hearing Rae's plan LOL ;)

    Here's what I'm thinking might (or might not) appear on the menu this week:

    Shrimp fried rice made with the leftover white rice from having Chinese the other night
    Homemade sausage pizza
    Homemade chicken soup with the leftover roast chicken
    A last real tomato salad with arugula from the garden if the frost didn't kill the arugula
    Something baked - maybe Shrewsbury drop cookies (similar to snickerdoodles but better)

    That's all I've got for now.

    Mon- tonight we're doing steak fried rice from leftover sirloin steak. I bought a large one on sale at Publix for $10 and it lasted for 3 meals (2 people each)... very impressed with the quality and first time buying beef there.

    Tues & Wed- Roast Chicken Thighs with Grape Tomatoes and Thyme. Baby Potatoes on the side the first night. And the second, Orzo Pasta w/Chickpeas, Dill and Lemon.

    Thurs & Fri- Slow Cooker Apple and Onion Pulled Pork in lettuce wraps or on a sweet potato. Leftover orzo salad on the side.

    Sat & Sun- Herby Green Chicken Veggie Soup

    Ascherer- have fun at SD!

    Tonight is chili out of the freezer. No meal plan this week because I am going down to Momma's for most of the week and DH will have to feed himself.

    I am finally going to do my HT SD trip today. I missed out on the snickers deal but should be able to get everything else I want because we won't eat/use most of the good deals.

    Happy Monday everyone.
