Weekly Menu Plan, Mar 20 – Mar 26

I skipped posting a menu plan last week because we spent half of the week at my folks’ house for Spring Break. It was great to relax and not worry too much about cooking. I did help out in the kitchen and made a few things while I was there, including strawberry shortcake and blueberry muffins. We ate really well 🙂

This week, I would like to try two new recipes, so we shall see if that happens. If we do get to them, I will be sure to update you all as to what we thought of them!

Dinners
Chicken Noodle Soup
Kielbasa Apple Kabobs, salad
Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta (new recipe to us)
Indian Tacos, chips & salsa
Slow Cooker Pork Chops (new recipe to us), mashed potatoes
Dinner at church
Pizza

It’s my son’s 7th birthday this week… So hard to believe, as these 7 years have flown by. Every day I am amazed at the person he is becoming. And, no big surprise to me, he picked his favorite “meatballs, gravy, & noodles” as his birthday dinner 🙂

Brats on the grill, potato salad
Swedish Meatballs, noodles, peas
Lasagna, garlic bread, salad
Crockpot Korean Beef Tacos

Week 11 menu plan: one year ago, two years ago, three years ago, and four years ago.

Weekly Menu Plan, Feb 28 – Mar 5

I started working on a menu plan last week, and then just totally abandoned posting it for you all. So for a quick review, I tried to make something new (a breakfast quinoa dish, and not for dinner, but for breakfast) but it was not very good and I gave most of it to our chickens! And other than that, we had a mix of food on the go and a few family favorites (tacos!)

This week, I’d like to maybe get to that lasagna soup recipe that I meant to try a few weeks ago. My husband has been craving buffalo wings, and I’ve been craving salt & pepper chicken, so our menu is a little more on the fried side than I’d like, but maybe we can balance that out with some lighter choices like tostadas (baked shells!) and fish 🙂

Dinners
Buffalo Wings, carrots & celery, homemade Blue Cheese dressing
Slow Cooker Chicken Tostadas
Salt & Pepper Chicken
, edamame
Tilapia, steamed broccoli
Best Lasagna Soup (new recipe to us), garlic bread
Dinner out for my son’s birthday!
Dinner at church

Macaroni & Cheese, peas
Chicken Caesar Salad, bread
Steak, asparagus, rolls
Chicken Yakitori (new recipe to us)

Week 7 menu plan: one year ago, two years ago, three years ago, and four years ago.

Weekly Menu Plan, Jan 31 – Feb 6

It’s February already! Supposedly the groundhog did not see his shadow, so we are in for an early spring. It’s spring-like here, today, with temperatures in the 50s and strong wind, but I know that other parts of the country are experiencing blizzards! I think I read somewhere that the groundhog’s predictions are only accurate about 35% of the time, so it’s good that I don’t rely on a rodent for weather forecasts 😉

Last week, we tried two new recipes. We liked both of them! The lemon chicken was a little on the sour side, and I added a little sugar to the sauce. I also didn’t deep fry the chicken, but pan fried the outsides crispy and then baked them in the oven until they were cooked through. The enchilada soup was also very good! It’s a little on the “spicy” side for my kids, but other than that, my husband and I liked it. And it was also so simple! I wasn’t able to get to sloppy joes (a request from my son), so I’ll make those this week.

I also received a number of turnips from some dear friends! I must say that I’ve not much experience cooking turnips… Do any of you have great turnip recipes to share?

Dinners
Sloppy Joes, peas
Tacos, chips & salsa, corn
Sesame Chicken & Noodles (new recipe to us)
Best Lasagna Soup (new recipe to us), garlic bread
Roasted kielbasa & vegetables (some vegetables will be turnips!)
Dinner at our friends’ house
Leftovers

Week 6 menu plan: one year ago, two years ago, three years ago, and four years ago.

Weekly Menu Plan, Jan 24 – Jan 30

Hello again, everyone! I hope your week last week went well. It’s difficult when the weather is yucky to get excited about leaving the house and doing anything other than eating soup and snuggling under warm blankets, and we had a week just like that last week. Thankfully, the weather looks to be much warmer this week, without the hassle of snow and ice!

As far as our menu this week goes, I would like to try out the lemon chicken dish (from two weeks ago!) this week, so I hope that I can get to it! I may end up not breading the chicken and just making it with the sauce, depending on how much time I have. I also really want to try the chicken enchilada soup that I planned on last week, as the slow cooker aspect of it really appeals to me.

Dinners
Sloppy Joes, corn
Takeout pizza 🙂
Cheeseburger Soup
Lemon Chicken (new recipe to us), rice, steamed broccoli
Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup (new recipe to us), cornbread
Dinner with friends
Leftovers

We did not get to the lemon chicken or the mushroom pasta dishes last week. I don’t think I’ll have time to make the chicken dish, but I’ve got to use the mushrooms before they spoil, so I’ll make that early this week. The weather is looking to be up and down as far as temperature goes. Totally normal for this time of year in Kansas!

Dinners
Italian Sausage Stuffed Bread
Chicken Noodle Soup, Coffee Cake Muffins
Fried Rice, egg rolls
Slow Cooked Pot Roast, Fried Noodles, Gravy

Week 4 menu plan: one year ago, two years ago, three years ago, and four years ago.

Weekly Menu Plan, Jan 10 – Jan 16

We are back in the swing of things. Normal school and work schedules have resumed, and it is nice to get back into a routine. For last week’s menu plan, we were able to try the tortellini soup, and it was definitely a hit! This week, my son requested that we make Shepherd’s Pie and my husband requested Quiche Lorraine. It’s always so much easier to menu plan when I have a few suggestions from the family 🙂

Dinners
Shepherd’s Pie
Quiche Lorraine, mixed vegetables
Simple French dip sandwiches, corn
Mushroom Marsala Pasta Bake, peas
Lemon Chicken (new recipe to us), rice, steamed broccoli
Dinner at our friends’ house
Leftovers (our fridge is too full!)
