My Weekly Meal Plan
Since I have been shopping the sales and using coupons a while, many of the items here may not match up perfectly with current sales. That’s because I have a lot already stocked in my freezer and pantry. If you are just starting out, you might want to checkout one of the meal plans below to help you out this week.
This is my TRUE meal plan, so I am going to show you how our week changed and how I adapt. Last week we had lots of leftovers from all the cooking I had done the week before, so it was mostly using what I had in the refrigerator to recreate meal ideas.
This week I also have some items on hand but I am going to scale back and only do one or two big meals, and then use all the extra from those meals this week. This will make my week easier. I’ll start with browning up two pounds of ground beef for the spaghetti, which will go towards making Baked Ziti. Then the extra pound of ground beef will sit in the fridge for our Tacos later in the week.
Now, I don’t have any taco shells on hand, but I do have a ton of corn tortillas in the freezer. So, I am going to shape them like a taco (by letting them sit in the underside of a muffin tin), brush them with a little oil and heat them in the oven for about 6 minutes. I hope to have a tutorial on this soon for you, but it is super simple.
Sunday: Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes (Brunch) , Super Bowl Snacks (ideas HERE): BBQ Chicken Nachos
* I made a double batch of pancakes for another morning this week. Plus, we will grill two batches of chicken to use in the enchiladas later.
Monday: Smoked Turkey Sausage, Spinach and Rice Soup (new recipe!)
* I am just pulling together some different items we have in the fridge and freezer I need to use. Hope it turns out good. If so, I’ll put it up as a recipe for you soon! Anyone have good ideas for this?
Tuesday: Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce
*The leftovers will be turned into Baked Ziti later, or put into the freezer.
Wednesday: Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas with Salsa Verde (My favorite ones!)
* Shredding extra chicken from our Chicken Nachos Sunday.
Thursday: Baked Ziti , salad
* Using the extra spaghetti sauce from Tuesday, I’ll also fold in some fresh spinach to add some more nutrients. We always use whole wheat noodles to make it a more balanced meal.
Friday: Pizza Night! Homemade Pizza Dough with Homemade Pizza Sauce
*Top with whatever is left in fridge, my new favorite is fresh chopped spinach, sliced tomatoes, green olives, peperocinis and artichokes.
