Weekly meal plans and Monday dinners

Posted January 18, 2016

BBQ chicken on salad

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, read the comments section to see what everyone else is having.

This week we are having the following meals:

Monday: BBQ chicken sandwiches (using the last of the BBQ chicken made this weekend in the slow cooker) and tomato soup.

Tuesday: Cheese ravioli with an alfredo sauce, steamed carrots

Wednesday: Breakfast casserole with eggs, turkey bacon, sauteed mushrooms and swiss cheese with fruit on the side.

Thursday: Up in the air. It's a busy night for everyone so we may have frozen pizza and a side salad.

Friday: Baked salmon, brown rice, roasted veggies.

The Girl Scouts came to visit this weekend so there could be GS cookies for dessert on any given night.

Do you have a favorite Girl Scout cookie variety? I love the Peanut Butter Patties....way too much.

    coupon4me - thank you for posting your menu! I love how you are using the coconut water with the pork loin. Very good idea. Enjoy your ladies night out!

    Stephanie, I love tomato bisque. If you find that healthy recipe, please share it. :-)

    lindabates - I have never made empanadas, What else do you put in yours other than the meat?

    Easy week for me.

    We did IHOP tonight for a free bday stack
    Tuesday - Slow-Cooker Coconut Braised Pork Lion (had a can of coconut water I needed to use up) will serve with scallions and white rice I will probably make BBQ pork for the little guys since this is a new recipe...not sure how it will go over

    Thursday - Ladies night out - I'm off... :-)

    Today feels like a grilled cheese and tomato soup kind of day!

    I had a great cup of Tomato Bisque soup at McAlister's Deli last week, I might look around to see if I can find a points-friendly recipe to try out. :-)

    We are having BBQ chicken sandwiches (using the last of the BBQ chicken made this weekend in the slow cooker) and tomato soup and lots of warm tea on this chilly day!

    ascherer - My oldest loves Thin Mints as well. Have a safe trip to your mom's house. It sounds like she is really having some fun adventures these days. Good for her!

    We love thin mints. And yes, there are three books in the kitchen.

    No clue on a menu plan this week. I am headed down to Momma's today for two weeks. I am house and cat sitting while Momma goes on her next adventure (Israel). I am guessing soup and sammie for tonight. The rest of the week I will figure it out once I have Momma on the plane. DH is on his own for two weeks.

    Happy chilly Monday all.
