I get asked a lot how much I stick to the menu I plan each week. Honestly, some weeks we make every single meal. Other weeks, life takes over and a trip out or food ordered in will sneak in at least once. I don’t let those weeks deter me from planning though because, without a plan, I am sure to turn to fast food or take-out much more often!
So, let’s see what is in my plan for the week!
Sunday: I’ve been trying to work in ‘the other white meat’ sometimes to get a little bit of variety from our standard chicken and beef diet. This week, I think I will try Ancho Pork Medallions to meet that goal.
Monday: Commonly referred to as Meatless Monday by so many which makes it the perfect day to try Stuffed Peppers with Quinoa.
Tuesday: Chicken isn’t leaving our diet completely though (we’d starve!) and will make its first appearance this week in a Chicken and Vegetable Bake.
Wednesday: Toddler E absolutely loves chicken apple sausage. When I saw Apple and Sausage Pie, I knew we had to try it!
Thursday: Back to pasta Thursday and this week is made even better by the addition of bacon in Bacon Parmesan Spaghetti.
Friday: Fall is in full swing and so is my soup pot (in some cases my crockpot!). I have it primed and ready for Rice and Pea Soup which I will probably throw some chicken in.
Saturday: Saturday is football day in our house. A Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese seems like an awesome alternative to wings!
Want to take the challenge with me to cook ‘on menu’ for the entire week? Come back in two weeks (come back next week of course for another menu!) and I’ll post exactly what ended up on our table for dinner!
