Monday Menu Planning & Recap


I made 4 out of 7 things this week. The fish, the sandwiches, the tacos & the soup and sandwiches.  Thursday was leftovers, Saturday we went out dinner & Sunday ended up being sandwiches & snacks while watching the Super Bowl.

Hoping to do better this month

Week 1

Chicken Fried Steak w/carrots & potatoes

Salmon w/lentils & spinach (I’m really going to make it this time I swear)

Chicken & Dumplings w/salad

Sage Pork Tenderloin w/cran apple relish

Sweet Pea Soup w/parmesan toast

London Broil w/cheesy quinoa broccoli bites

Stuffed Chicken (another long term carryover) w/roasted cauliflower

Week 2

Crunchy fish w/mixed frozen veggies

Chicken & rice soup (slow cooker)

Pot Roast

Pork chops w/golden applesauce

Shrimp penne positano w/endive salad

Monte Cristo sandwiches w/salad

Herb & garlic tagliata w/roasted beets

Week 3

Chicken w/mushroom sauce (slow cooker)

Garlic pork roast w/carrot, turnip & parsnips

Chicken, shrimp & broccoli stir fry

Beef & cider pot (yet another carryover)

Rib eye & cream sauce w/potato & spinach salad

Baked potato soup w/endive salad

Buffalo chicken mac & cheese w spinach salad

Plus there will be 3 take out or eat out meals which will displace meals in the menu, spaghetti or lasagna, leftover soup & grilled sandwiches & two random or leftover meals to displace 2 more menu items to round out the month.

I’m not going to fool myself this month.  I will not be making all 7 meals any week this month. But this way I have a whole month of meals planned.

  • I used to plan my meals for a month when my children were small. Now I’m an empty-nester and I just don’t cook that much—maybe twice a week tops. That gives me leftovers for two more nights. Add a night out and a couple of Lean Cuisines, and that’s the week! I think if I started planning it out again, I wouldn’t be in such a rut. I tend to cook the same things over and over. I made a resolution to try two new recipes a month. So far, I’ve managed to make three new things in January. We’ll see how that goes!

  • I’m putting my menu up for this week. It’s almost all brand new things I’ve never made. Kind of nervous.

  • I think the sage pork sounds particularly delicious!

  • Rib eye with cream sauce, plus potato and spinach salad sound lovely. I like hot salads.

  • I love that you have gone to two week menu planning with arrows!
