Weekly Food Plan

I figured out why I hardly ever post our menu plan.  We go grocery shopping on Friday, and by the time I get home, I don't want to write a post.  I also spend the weekend blogging about our homeschool.  I would like to make a habit of posting our menu plan, but I guess I will just have to figure out a good day to be consistent posting day.  But, here is what we have been eating this past week.

Friday:  I made hamburgers from ground beef.  I add Riley's seasoning and Worcestershire sauce.  We also had french fries.

Saturday:  Baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, and shredded cheese.  We haven't had these in so long!!  So yummy!!

Sunday:  We had meatloaf and mashed potatoes.  I use the meatloaf recipe from Confessions of a Homeschooler-yummy!!!

Monday:  I tried out a new recipe this week:  Baked Tortellini Casserole from No. 2 Pencil.  It was good!  I would personally drain the meat and tomatoes next time, as it was a bit on the saucy side.  But, everyone ate it and Charger even asked for seconds.  I have been eating the leftovers for lunch, too.  Very good!

Tuesday:  Pork roast with potatoes and carrots.  I just added a Lipton Tea onion soup packet and a couple cups of water and put it in the slow cooker.  I love having dinner just ready for me at the end of school!

Wednesday:  Tonight we were supposed to have AWANA, so mac and cheese was on the list.  Well, it was snowed out, so I still made the mac and cheese.  But, I added ham, carrots, parsley, and sour cream.  Much better.

Thursday:  Tomorrow night will be spaghetti with meat sauce.  I add the Riley's seasoning to the spaghetti meat, too.

Friday night:  This week we will have lots of leftovers to eat up, which will save us on groceries for next week :).

Oh, you probably noticed that we had a lot of potatoes this week.  My husband requested them, so I used them a lot.  Always good for filling bellies on cold nights.

I have a Pinterest page of recipes if you have any interested in stalking it :).

So, what are you eating this week?  I'm going to need some ideas for my list tomorrow.

God Bless,

yum! I always do a terrible job posting our meal plan! I need to start doing a better job. Tonight we are having Garlic Caesar Chicken.. I have it cooking in the crockpot with extra sauce so I can serve it over rice and steamed broccoli. Tomorrow night is our bible study night and I just need to bring a veggie so I am bringing a salad. Tomorrow at some point I will plan for the rest of the week. This is a no grocery buying week. I need to use up some stuff we have so it will probably be very random meals!!
