Week 4 of the Just In Time Family Meal Planning Challenge

Posted on 20 February 2012 by noelskitchen

Having already stocked my freezer with main dish ingredients, I can prepare my weekly meal plan when I’m pressed for time.

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? This week, for my Just In Time Family Meal Planning Challenge, I’m sharing my make-ahead cooking strategy which is guaranteed to save me time in the kitchen and add some tasty dishes to our dinner menu. When you’re especially pressed for time or when you just want to get in and out of the kitchen extra fast, the meals I’ve got planned for this week will have recipes that take no more than 15 to 30 minutes to prepare.  I’ve replenished my pantry and I”m ready to add more meals to my freezer. Let me know if you like this and if it helps you out with planning your meals this week.

My Weekly Meal Plan

Here’s a look at the week ahead with recipes posting throughout the week:

Sunday: Taco Chili, leftovers will be used for the hubby’s lunch. (recipe posting soon) I also made a batch of Quick Minestrone Soup for lunch this week.

Monday: Crock Pot Roasted Chicken, Bacon, Lettuce, Artichoke Salad with Homemade Buttermilk dressing and Homemade Croutons.

Tuesday: Skillet Macaroni and Beef (using make-ahead ground beef)

Wednesday: Chicken and Dumplings (recipe posting during the week)

Thursday: Spaghetti Florentine

Friday: Pizza Night!  We’ll have pepperoni pizza for the kids and a specialty pizza for the hubby and I with the traditional Homemade Pizza Dough with Homemade Pizza Sauce.

Saturday: Country Supper Omelet
