Weekly Meal Plan December 9-15, 2012

Happy Monday Tuesday Friends!  This week I didn’t quite get the meal plan up like I intended to for Monday. I ended up finishing some last minute decorating and shopping with my little girl. My goal however this week, is to re-stock the freezer again with more comfort foods. I scored big time at Raley’s with their BOGO sale in the meat department this past Saturday and I’ll be using this to my advantage to create some ready made freezer meals for my family and squeeze in some extra meals for my sister-n-law when she comes to visit/house-sit after Christmas.  

Here’s our plan for the week.

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

Breakfast options: 

(served with fruit)

French toast casserole
Biscuits and Sausage Gravy
Scrambled, Fried, or Hard-Boiled Eggs
Breakfast Burritos
English Muffins
Homemade Bread
Breakfast Cookies
Mini Apple Pies or Turnovers

Lunch options:

Sandwiches or Wraps (Tuna salad, egg saladchicken salad, turkey salad, leftover meats, grilled cheese, blt, pb&j)
Leftovers from dinner
Baked Potato
Homemade Pizza Pockets

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.
