What's for dinner Tuesday & weekly meal plan

Posted July 9, 2013



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 for what to make with all the great deals you have bought on sale recently.

What's on your menu tonight?

Here's our menu for the rest of the week:


Sesame chicken in the slow cooker (chicken breast was $1.99/lb recently on sale)

Stir fry noodles and veggies (zucchini, squash, onion, mushrooms)

Veggie egg rolls



Spaghetti and marinara (spaghetti is my daughter's favorite meal and we usually have it at least once a week for lunch or dinner)


Ceasar salad



Salmon burgers on pita bread with lettuce, tomatoes, light mayo and provolone cheese (Ocean Beauty Sea Choice - Herb Encrusted Salmon Burgers are on sale at HT for $3.99 through 7/9)

Sweet potato fries

Tomato and cucumber salad with Italian dressing



Smoked turkey, cheese and avocado quesadillas

You can see the quesadilla recipe link from in the box above. I am not using mangoes, though, as the recipe calls for. Instead, I'll top them with fresh avocado slices, chopped fresh tomatoes and a little salsa and light sour cream.

Sweet corn

Tomato and cucumber salad with Italian dressing

    Italian Bake using the chicken tenderloins on sale at HT (B2g3) a while back, homemade spaghetti sauce, diced onions and peppers from Aldi sales, 1# pasta and shredded cheese from HT (b2g3). Maybe with a spinach salad if I get by the store on the way home. If not I may just toss the frozen spinach in the bake.
