Weekly Meal Plan August 5-11, 2012

Weekly Meal Planning requires a small investment of time, but can reap great rewards.

We’re on week two of our cooking from the pantry challenge. I’ve created a lot of from scratch recipes using simple pantry staples like flour, sugar, and miscellaneous baking spices to make some really delicious breakfasts and fruit butters.

This week’s menu is focusing not only on ingredients on hand but fast and frugal weeknight meals. This week, we plan on starting the family exercises back up. Yes, with summer we tend to slack off a bit. In the early evening after dinner, we’ll do our family walk. A family walk after dinner not only aids your digestion, it’s quality time and slips in some exercise at the end of a busy day.

My weekly meal plan and shopping list is completed and posted on our fridge:

Suppers Your Family Will Love

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.

Dinner (recipes will post throughout the week)

Sunday: Vegetable Chow Mein

Monday: Grilled Chicken Pesto Pasta, Garlic Bread

Tuesday: Turkey burgers with brown rice and veggies

Wednesday: Chila Quiles (traditional Mexican dish, new recipe)

Thursday: Cobb Salad, Bread

Friday: Pizza Night! Homemade Pizza on Homemade Pizza Dough, Breadsticks and Salad.

Saturday: Hot August Nights, Reno- Dinner out with family
