It’s Monday–time to share our dinner-time game plans for the week! A little effort with meal planning at the beginning of the week helps me to provide my family with nutritious, budget-friendly meals, and also allows me to get my act together when our family’s headed in several different directions.
We’ve got a few nights at home this week, and a few more on the run, so on the days we’ll be home I’m trying to do a little more freezer cooking for when things get busy again in a few weeks. I did that with a few meals last week, and the freezer is already starting to look pretty good!
Here’s my plan for this week:
Monday: Pot roast in the crock pot, mashed potatoes & gravy, broccoli (making two roasts so the leftovers can go in the freezer for Pulled Roast Beef Sliders –this got bumped from last week!)
Tuesday: Tacos–making double and freezing half of the taco meat for later
Wednesday: Dinner out with family who’s visiting from out of town
Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie (one of my favorites–yummo! If I get really ambitious, I might double this recipe too!)
Friday: Homemade pizza, apple slices, carrots & dip
Saturday: Grilled hamburgers, baked french fries, green beans
Sunday: Grilled chicken, oven roasted redskin potatoes, corn on the cob
