Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? It’s time for another weekly menu. I enjoy menu planning because of the simplicity it provides for my life. It enables me to decrease my grocery shopping excursions to twice a month and it allows me to have more free time to focus on my family and home.
For ideas in the weekly meal plan, we’ll be focusing on a variety of family meals. You’ll find the recipes on the weekly meal plan also available on my Recipe Index page with a grocery list included.
My Weekly Meal Plan
This week, I’ll be basing a lot of the recipes based on the Turkey I roasted on Saturday and the Crock Pot Roasted Chicken I’m cooking today. My freezer is well-stocked with frozen veggies that were on sale in last week’s family deals at the grocery store that I’ll be including as well.
My weekly meal plan and shopping list is completed and posted on our fridge:
Will remain the same with some variety: Scrambled or Fried Eggs, Breakfast Burritos, Oatmeal Packets, Green Smoothies, some type of muffins, Homemade Granola Bars, Cold Cereal. New recipe this week: Spiced Raisin Bread
Are usually a bit more flexible, as often times we’ll simply have leftovers from a previous night’s meal, but if not, I always have ingredients on hand in the pantry for: Egg Salad Sandwiches, Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Peanut Butter and Jelly or regular sandwiches like Ham, Turkey and Cheese all served with fresh fruit and veggies.
In addition to our weekly menu, we have a baking day on a weekly basis. Every Sunday afternoon, we will rotate through restocking some nutritious snacks and baked goods, such as granola, protein bars, granola bars, muffins, and/or biscuits for various meals.
