Weekly Meal Plan: 1/15/12 – 1/21/12

15 Jan

I did pretty well with last week’s meal plan.  I didn’t make the Spinach Bacon Macaroni and Cheese because I didn’t have bacon and forgot to get it at the store.  I made a bag of frozen tortellini in it’s place.  I also didn’t make pizza, I got Papa Murphy’s Take ‘N’ Bake pizza.  Close to homemade, but not quite.

Here is what I have planned for the upcoming week:

Moussaka (Eggplant Casserole)

Chicken Pesto Pizza with Spinach Basil Pesto

Kotopoulo Lemonato (Lemon Chicken)

Chicken Enchilada Soup

Fish Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce and Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Sausage Florentine Pizza, possibly with homemade pizza sauce

Garlic Herb Chicken with Broccoli and Cauliflower

Weekly Meal Plan: 1/8/12 – 1/14/12

9 Jan

I had wanted to get this posted yesterday, but didn’t get a chance.  I don’t have specific days for everything yet, but here is a list of what I will be making this week:

Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup and crescent rolls (this is what I made last night)

Copycat Fiesta Lime Chicken, rice, and refried black beans

Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff over egg noodles, salad

Greek night with a friend, I think we’re having Pastitsio and Dolmathes

Spinach Mushroom Quiche

Spinach-Bacon Macaroni and Cheese (recipe coming soon)

Pizza night, either homemade or carry-out from somewhere

Weekly Meal Planning

9 Jan

One thing I found helpful when I started getting serious about saving money at the grocery store was meal planning.  Since there generally aren’t coupons for every part of a meal, namely produce and meat, it becomes important to watch prices and stock up when there are good sales on these items.  I used to be really good about writing out a weekly meal list based on the sales, and on my local mom’s group forum, we would share our weekly meal plans to get ideas for dinner.  I have more recently not been real good about planning, so I figured it was time to start it up again.  I typically do a meal plan Sunday through Saturday, because I get a new Bountiful Basket on Saturday, then shop Sunday morning for ingredients I need for meals with the items in my basket.  Please feel free to share your weekly meal plans too!
