Week of 8/7 Meal Planning

2 Flares Filament.io 2 Flares ×

Well as you saw by all of my corrections last week, I am still working on figuring out exactly how much/often I need to cook, how much will be leftover, and how much we’ll use during the week for lunches. We’ll see how I do this week!

Sunday: “Brenner” aka breakfast for dinner – scrambled egg and bacon sandwiches, berries.

Monday: King Ranch Chicken Casserole (You’ll notice I did not make this last week.)

Tuesday: Leftovers or egg sandwich for me. Hubby working late.

Wednesday: Pasta with meatballs and tomato sauce. (Two notes: 1. The recipe link is to BBQ meatballs, so I’m just making the meatballs from it. No BBQ sauce. 2. I’m hoping hubby will have a few meatballs leftover for lunch.)

Thursday: Black bean soup. (I’m hoping my hubby will want to take this for lunch as well.)

Friday: Hubby cooks! Pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, salad or a veggie.

Saturday: BLTs, sweet potato fries (baked, not fried). This will now be our lunch! Lunch was leftovers. Just so many! For dinner, we are having several families over and grilling fajitas!

I’m working on expanding our menu options, so I’ve been reading a few of my favorite foodie blogs: 5 Dollar Dinners, Elizabeth Ann’s Recipe Box, and The Pioneer Woman.

What’s your favorite cooking blog?

Also if you are a foodie blogger, leave your link as a comment! I need more ideas, and I’d love to check it out! (Cooking blogger friends – If I left you out, I didn’t mean to! Remind me of your foodie blog! I’m just starting to get into the food blog world!)
