Meal Plan

I am wanting to try to do a meal plan each week...not only for grocery shopping, but so we can know what we're having and not spend 30 minutes going:

'what do you want for dinner?'
'I don't know, what do you want?'

So here is my meal plan for this week.

Chicken and Broccoli Skillet

Tuesday: (we're having guests over for dinner)
White Cheese Chicken Lasagna
White Cheese Chicken Lasagna Recipe

Spaghetti with Wheat Pasta

Chicken Noodle Soup and Grilled Cheese
Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Chicken Broccoli Shells

I'm sure things might change around a bit or there might be a meal I don't end up making, but for the most part this is my plan.

We have gotten into a dinner slump, where we're making the same things over and over. I really love to try new recipes and to cook, so I'm going to try to get back into finding new recipes and making old ones that we love. I want to try to have dinner ready for Nick when he gets home from work. I used to do this all the time. Since Hannah will pretty much eat what we eat, I think I can get back into making fun dinners and she will be able to eat them too! (ok, minus the spaghetti I have down for Wednesday! I'm not going there with Hannah! :oP )

What are you making for dinner this week? Any fun new recipes you're trying out?



  1. We used to do a menu too. I saved A LOT of money!! I have had that particular cheesy chicken skillet recipe but I do use this one it's AMAZING. I have a book of trusted recipes that I use if you're ever interested.

  2. ooops I *haven't* had that recipe.

  3. We did the meal plan thing last week. Saved money going to the store because we actually stuck to the list. Also, I didn't start making a meal and then say 'oops, I don't have everything I need' We actually did a good job sticking to it too, and what I didn't make, I'm making this week.
    I think I'm going to try that chicken lasagna! :o)
    OH and our standby is this Chicken/Bacon/Ranch pasta meal I got from one of your books. :oP

  4. OH and I must be nosey....who are your guests? :oP I can't wait until we have chairs for our table and then can have quests....we have to make friend in OH though....hmmmm

  5. Aww come on! Let Hannah have the spaghetti!! It's so much fun to watch them get messy! OH and I think I'm going to steal that receipe for Chicken broccoli shells-it sounds yummy

  6. Sara- We're having Erin, Rob and Jack over for dinner. If you lived my us we could have dinner nights at each others houses... :o(


I'd love to hear from you!! :o)
