My Weekly Meal Plan
I don’t think I ever got my weekly meal plan up last week! In the middle of getting ready for my trip to Ecuador, I had to deal with a stomach bug! While I’m gone this week, Bradford and the kids will be able to pull lots of meals out of the freezer. (Thanks to National Hot Breakfast Month and last week’s 10/$10 sale on eggs at Kroger, my freezer is full of lots of Freezer Friendly Egg Recipes. Check out the recipes HERE.) I’m doing a Roasted Sticky Chicken in the crock pot on Sunday, and that way they’ll have some leftovers from it too. Here’s what they will be eating:
Monday: BBQ Chicken Nachos (my hubby’s favorite!). Easy, fast, and fun. He can have any left over salad from Sunday and serve up carrot sticks and cucumbers for the kids to dip in ranch as a side.
Tuesday: Chick-fil-A Yay–Free Kids’ Meals on Tuesday nights. Plus there are lots of new, healthy menu options.
Wednesday: Vegetable Beef Soup with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. I store soups in the freezer in zipper bags. They lay flat on the shelf this way and don’t take up as much space. Check out my How to Organize Your Freezer Video HERE.
Thursday: Hashbrown Quiche and a Strawberry Spinach Salad with Sweet Balsamic Dressing. (Using strawberries that were on sale last week.)
Friday: Pizza Night! I’ll be on my way home while my family does our traditional Homemade Pizza Dough with Homemade Pizza Sauce. Bradford can do a BBQ Chicken Pizza with leftovers from Sunday’s Roast Sticky Chicken, or this Pesto Chicken Pizza.
Saturday: Surely we’ll be going out to eat for my “Welcome-Home-Kelly-Longest-Week-of-My-Life-Without-You Dinner” hehe 🙂
What is on your weekly meal plan this week? I’d love to hear your ideas!
Any Store Meal Plan
As you’re putting together your weekly meal plan, remember that there are some items that are always going to be on sale during the month of February, no matter where you shop, so you will see them in recipes here each week, just to give you a variety of ideas for your planning.

It’s National Hot Breakfast Month, so bacon, hot cereals, syrup, and pancake mixes are on sale. February is National Canned Food month too, so you will find great prices on canned goods. This is a great opportunity to help stock local food pantries. Plus, this is the Chinese New Year, so any store will have sales on items like stir fry and ramen noodles.
