6/26-7/2 Menu Plan

Here is this next week's menu plan... we were finally able to hit our local Farmers Market so I made the majority of my menu plan based off of our finds there (=

This coming week I am also going to be making Chinese Food for the first time (and not just the pre-made sauce over chicken and rice...).  I am not going to go nuts but I am going to try to make some yummy chicken chow mien.  We shall all see how that goes! 

Homemade Pizza, green beans
Chicken/Brocc/Rice/cheese casserole, Corn 
Chicken Chow Mien
Turkey burgers, cucumber salad, BBQ squash
Taco Ring, Avocado, Beans
Chicken Chili & Cornbread
Friday Dinner w/ my Parents

Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

Hope everyone has a great week!

6/4-6/9 Meal Plan

I am back and 100% back to meal planning.  I hope to pick up my grocery shopping/meal videos again too- the computer that I assembled them on has decided to work again so yay to that!  I did not expect this pregnancy to take such a toll on my meal plans, then with a vacation away, people coming and staying with us for a week and my son's birthday/party it's just been downright nuts! 
So with that said here is my meal plan for next week.  I am actually excited to go grocery shopping tomorrow and to get things back on track!  It has been way too long!

  • Homemade Chicken Gnocchi Soup & Salad
  • Cheese & Green Chili Tamales, Rice & Beans
  • BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Pasta & Artichokes
  • Big Salads (the works- with eggs, chicken, cheese, tons of veggies, etc.)
  • 2- Frozen Meals (from the freezer cooking days- look back at previous posts for what it may be)
  • Airport Food- blah!  But we leave right after work and will be cutting it close so it may be more like airplane food

I am so excited to get back to saving money and knowing what we will be eating each night (I HATE the "what's for dinner?" question!).  Over the last few months I have not at all stopped with our normal at home, homemade, meals and my standards have stayed the same… just the way I do it all has changed and I have noticed the effects with our dinner time and our bank account.

So I MUST get back to normal and stay on track!
