Meal Planning Sunday

Another successful week of meal planning last week.  Was able to stick to the menu the entire week and had some new and tasty dinners.  I'm excited to plan this week's menu because hubby has a new work schedule with some days off during the week!  He has agreed to do the cooking on his days off so that I don't have to worry about it after work.  He'll even be going and picking up the kids early so I have one less thing to worry about.  I love that man!

Sunday - Leftovers - we have so much in fridge right now and it needs to be cleaned out
Monday - Doc's chili & baked potato
Tuesday - 3 packet pot roast, egg noodles and steamed broccoli
Wednesday - Hubby's delicious chicken rolls, mashed potatoes, & steamed asparagus
Thursday - Steak, rice & green beans
Friday - Going to order something for delivery or pick up...possibly Chinese food
Saturday - Asian Meatballs, steamed rice & broccoli

I'm on the lookout for a tasty and flavorful recipe for beef if anyone has a good one please send my way...


  1. Yummy! I just meal planned yesterday and went grocery shopping for the week. It sure makes dinner easier.

  2. Meal planning is so important with my busy schedule. I plan all the meals on Saturday and try to use what I already have on hand in the freezer and pantry and then work from there. We have what we call "Poor Man's Beef Stroganoff" and it's super easy.

    1 package egg noodles
    1 lb ground beef
    2 pkgs dry brown gravy mix

    Brown the ground beef and drain. Add the gravy mixes and two cups cold water. Stir until thickened and pour over the cooked egg noodles. It's so easy and delicious!
