Monday's Meal Plan- Starting the Year Off Right

Back to the ol' meal plan!!  December was meal planning chaos, LOL!  Its always the month for last minute get togethers, dinners out, family in town, etc... so I was definitely ok with being flexible.  There is something so comfortable about that meal plan though- Not to mention, its definitely one of the things that will help me save a lot of money and time.  Here's what I'm thinking for this week.  What are you cooking up?

Monday: Chicken Pot Pie
Tuesday: Artichokes, Chicken Rice
Turkey Feta Burgers, sweet potato fries
Thursday: Tacos, homemade salsa and guacamole
Friday: dinner with friends

Breakfasts: French Toast (made with
homemade french bread), circle waffles (pancakes to my 3 year old :), cold cereal
Lunches: Leftovers from tonight (baked chicken, mashed taters), pb&j, cut up veggies, taco pizzas (pizza made on tortillas)


  1. hello Monday weekly meal plan, oh how I have missed thee! haha
    is it sad I get giddy when I see a fb post that you have posted these on your blog?? I did mine last night and went shopping @ 9pm! yikes
    heres mine for the week
    Pasta roll ups
    venison taco's on flat bread (never made them with this flat bread thing but it sounded interesting thought I would try it)
    slowcooked orange chicken and rice
    taco soup
    friday I left open cause I think Justin has friends staying the night and I couldn't decide what to serve ;)

  2. I read this and have, for the last 5 minutes, been obsessing over homemade french bread! I bookmarked the recipe. I have yet to try to knead my own bread. (I have a bread machine.) This recipe is incentive enough. Thanks!

  3. I've got to get over to your blog and get that recipe for pasta rollups, Mary- they looked so good!!!! Thanks for sharing your menu!! I wish chris would hurry up and get a deer before hunting season is over so I can try some venison tacos ;) @ Robin- have you done it yet? I don't have a bread machine, but I like to let my kitchenaid knead it for me.. lot easier :) Let me know what you think when you make it!

  4. yes tell him to get on it! lol we wouldn't have any if it werent for my BIL and SIL. My SIL"s was actually given to her, she just had to hang it and have it butchered. we are almost out and I am sad. Lots of sausage left but I don't like it. I couldn't spit it out fast enough when I tried it lol. I can email you that recipe too if you want, just let me know.
