Wednesday- Pasta with meatball sauce
Thursday- Tacos or other ground beef dish
Friday- Leftover Night
Saturday-Breakfast for Dinner- Pancakes, Waffles, Eggs and/or Hash Browns

Last week actually went really well according to plan.  We got Little Caesars Pizza on Saturday for lunch and we had meatball sliders for dinner.  I made extra sauce and meatballs so we will have that with our pasta on Wednesday.  I was trying to work out a plan for the weekend again but I again don't have a clue what is going on.  My mother in law is coming into town so I am not sure what our schedule is going to be for the next few weeks.  I am working on trying to be flexible and going with whatever happens but I know there will be a lot of changes so hoping for a smooth few weeks with enough food on hand to handle the changes in plans and people.

Do you have any fun plans this week??


  1. It sounds like a delicious week, I wish I had checked Feedly before sweating over making my own menu, I would have just copied yours. I need to stock up on ground beef because I think I'm out. I hope a sale comes soon!

    I'm so over cooking... and I barely even cooked all week last week because Greg was out and we might have eaten out more than we should have. I defrosted a big seasoned pork shoulder roast this morning, along with chicken breasts. I plan on cooking the roast and the chicken breasts in the crockpot (separately) throughout the week so that should give me 3 to 4 meals. Tonight we'll have tuna patties, I make a frittata on Saturday. Nothing exciting I'm afraid. I cheated and didn't even look in my fridge so I have no idea of what I should be using up and I don't even care. Ugh.

    Enjoy your MIL's visit. When is school out for you guys? Youngest Son has his final day of school Wednesday next week.

    1. I am so over cooking every night too!!! I don't have a lot of other choices to stay under budget but I have been very tempted to just say order out!! I have barely been keeping up but my simple menu is helping. Here is hoping that I make it through a family visit with ups and downs. I need to stay out of the store for the rest of the month or the budget is blown out of the water too!!! Post coming on that tomorrow!

      I wish that I was better at using the crock pot but if I don't get the chicken cooked for dinner then it is totally going in the crock pot because we need shredded chicken in the freezer...maybe I should take two out of the chickens and get to work on that!!

      School ends for my preschool kids the Friday before Memorial Day but public school isn't out until June 23rd! We only have 9 weeks of summer because they are going to start back earlier next year too :(
