Weekly Meal Plan – Week of 10/7/10

I have really fallen off the meal planning wagon.  It has really made for a stressful evening, which would usually end in getting something delivered or cereal.  Not good.  Last month was a bit of a whirlwind, with all the sports, school, and Little E in the hospital for 4 days (he had pneumonia, he’s ok now).

I’m determined to get it together and have some sort of plan.  This week is a no frills, basic meal plan.  It’s going to take me a bit to get back in the swing of things and come up with more exciting dinners.  I have also discovered that I should do the plan before lunch instead of after.  I don’t plan food well on a full stomach!

Thursday – Sandwiches of some sort with apple wedges

Friday – Homemade pizza with salad

Saturday – BBQ chicken with rice and salad

Sunday – Fend for yourself

Monday – Lasagna with salad (I need to explore different sides, lol!)

Tuesday – Taco’s

Wednesday – Pancakes, sausage, hash browns (?)

Meal Plan Monday – July 12

This week is a bit of a short one as far as a meal plan goes.  We are camping this weekend, so I’m not planning those meals yet.  We are getting together with friends tonight to go over what everyone is going to bring.  This is going to be our first official camping trip with the boys, so I am very excited!  It’s been years since I have been, but it is something that I enjoyed very much.   Actually, Mr. D and I met on a camping trip!

Monday: Lasagna with salad

Tuesday: Black Bean Quesadillas

Wednesday: Honey Mustard Glazed Chicken

Thursday: Leftovers

I’ll try to post our plan for camping later (probably tomorrow) after it gets set.

Have a great week!!

Meal Plan Monday – May 17, 2010

While looking at the calendar to plan our meals this morning, I realized that there are only three weeks left of school.  I can’t believe it.  Big I just started Kindergarten last month, didn’t he?  Has it really been 9 months??  Next year is first grade.  Where did my baby go?? 

Oh, sorry, I’m getting a little off subject here!

OK, this week we have a baseball game on Wednesday.  Then Big I’s friend party on Friday evening, Saturday is a family friends 6th birthday party, and Sunday is the PTA end of year barbeque.  As far as cooking goes, I decided to make it an easy-peasy week.

Monday – Spaghetti with salad

Tuesday – Black Bean Quesadillas (If I finally remember to buy the cheese!)

Wednesday – Pulled pork sandwiches – a carry over from last week

Thursday – Tacos in Pasta shells

Friday – Homemade pizza

Saturday – Fend for yourself

Sunday – Breakfast or Fend for yourself

Monday Meal Plan – Week of 5.10.10

What a crazy weekend we ended up having!  Friday night was a fundraiser (that we were able to thankfully get away with not spending any money on over the tickets.)  Saturday was Little E’s birthday and we went to Chuck E Cheeses for the afternoon.  The boys had a blast!  Sunday, you might remember, I couldn’t decide what I wanted for dinner.  We ended up getting pizza, again!  That’s ok, I really do love it!

This week should be much quieter, with just a baseball game for Big I and a softball game for Mr. D. 

Monday – Lasagna

Tuesday – Oven Fried Mustard Chicken

Wednesday – Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Thursday – Tortellini

Friday – Hot dogs

Saturday – Black Bean Quesadillas

Sunday – Breakfast for dinner

Meal Plan – Week of 5/3

I hope I’m not speaking too soon, but I think that Spring is finally here to stay in our neck of the woods!  After some rain last week we enjoyed temps well into the 70’s over the weekend.  We got a lot of the yard work done and this week I just have to find a little time to plant our veggies.

It seems like we have a lot going on this week.  Saturday is Little E’s 4th birthday.  Both boys share May as there birthday month, so we have a combined family party for them usually around Big I’s birthday on Memorial Day Weekend.  Little E has a special day tomorrow at preschool and then on Saturday we will be taking him and a friend as well as Big I and another friend to Chuck E Cheese’s for an early dinner.  Tuesday is baseball practice.  Friday we have a fundraiser to go to for the preschool and Sunday is Mother’s Day.  I haven’t decided what I want for dinner on Mother’s Day yet, but I do know I will not be coooking it!  😉

Monday – Tacos

Tuesday – Fend for yourself (usually ends up some kind of breakfast for dinner)

Wednesday – Cinco de Mayo – Nachos

Thursday – Lasagna

Friday – Kids will have pizza with babysitter, Mr D and I will be at the fundraiser

Saturday – Chuck E Cheese’s

Sunday – To be determined!

Hope you all have a great week!
