Weekly Menu: February 22

meal plan feb 22

The weekend got away from me a bit, and today (Monday) was full of errands, so I barely got the meal plan written out and shopped for in time for dinner tonight, much less in time for a blog post this morning. But I did get it done, and we’ll be right on track this week. This will make 4 consecutive weeks of weekly shopping, and I must say: I am loving it!

I think I’d like to do a report on how we did last week, too, since I mentioned that posting this here is as much for my own accountability as it is for something you might find helpful.

Last week, we ate out (unplanned) once. We had some errands to take care of, and since the boys had Pizza Hut Book-It coupons, we went there for lunch. But we went on Tuesday, which is the day Pizza Hut has two pans of pasta and five breadsticks for $10, so it was a fairly painless dining out excursion. On top of that, I had a last minute change late in the week to what I’d planned. Nothing that caused us to eat out, thank goodness, just a shift from the planned meal.

Now, on to the next meal plan.

Monday, lunch: We ate out today because we were busy doing errands all day

               Dinner: Chicken and potatoes (from Supermarket Healthy)

Tuesday, lunch: Vegetarian Quiche

               Dinner: Chicken Fried Steak, mashed potatoes, corn

Wednesday, lunch: Sandwiches and fruit

               Dinner: Salmon Cakes with roasted vegetables (from Supermarket Healthy)

Thursday, lunch: Sandwiches and fruit

               Dinner: Taco Rice with tortilla chips

Friday, lunch: Sandwiches and fruit

               Dinner: Chicken with fennel and orange-dill sauce (from Supermarket Healthy) with angel hair pasta

Saturday, lunch: Sandwiches and fruit

               Dinner: Chicken Pot Pie

Sunday, lunch: Spaghetti (crock pot meal)

               Dinner: TBD

As you can see, we’ll be eating a lot of sandwiches this week; that’s because Will is going to be working away from home, and it’s just easier to have a simple lunch when it’s just me and the kids. I have a variety of things to make sandwiches out of (ham and Swiss, tuna for tuna melts, eggs for egg salad, peanut butter and jelly), so it won’t be too monotonous for us.

What’s on your menu this week?

  1. Looks great! Our lunches are sandwiches and fruit MOST of the time 🙂 🙂 I’ve found lunch is one of those meals that just happen, lol. Your dinner choices for the week look great! I have to be honest, we’ve been doing a lot of leftovers, cooking a mega meal, that lasts a couple days, I like how you change it up daily!

      Hi Nicole! Thanks for coming back :). Sandwiches and fruit are a great, easy lunch. Problem in my house is that no one likes the same kind, lol. My husband isn’t really a “leftovers” kind of guy, so I have to plan something new each night. Sometimes the kids and I will eat dinner leftovers for lunch, but unless I disguise it (leftover roasted chicken becomes quesadillas, for example) he prefers “new” food.

      I must admit, it’s easy to get tired of sandwiches, even if you have a different kind every day. But it’s still a cheap, easy lunch for when it’s just me and the kids. It’s not worth it to me to prepare a full meal unless we’re all here. Is that bad? LOL.
