Meal Planning Monday - Week 1

Well, here it is! A little bit later than I would have liked, but I blame that on Hubs. He spent the entire weekend hogging the computer to write a paper for class. I'll be heading to the grocery store in just a bit so I'll be sure to come back and update with the cost of everything.

This week, like every other, I try to make a medley of dishes using a variety of ingredients, while not letting anything go to waste. I cook for four which give us enough for dinner and a little extra for lunch the next day. On my busy days there is more than likely a crockpot meal, but I figure just about any dish can be adjusted to be a crockpot meal.

I don't normally follow the recipe exactly, but these are the exact recipes that I'll be basing each meal off of.

Week 1 Menu:
Monday: Greek Pasta Salad
Tuesday: Chicken Tortilla Soup sprinkled with Fritos
Wednesday: Baked Spaghetti in Garlic Bread with meat sauce
Thursday: Burgundy Pork Tenderloin with roasted vegetables
Friday: Fish Tacos (self explanatory? with the usual toppings)
Saturday: Bruschetta Chicken on pasta
Sunday: Pork Fried Rice with store bought eggrolls

Although we might eat out once a week, I like to plan for all seven days just in case. If a certain meal doesn't get eaten, it can always be rolled over to the next week.

  1. I always plan for 7 days...much easier that way. If you go out once than you an shuffle that meal to the next week. :)

  2. I am coming over Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday!
    See you soon :)
