Menu Plan Monday 3/21-4/4

Last week I did menu plan but didn’t post it. I do not have a reason for not posting other than just do not have the motivation to do a lot of anything lately.  Last week was a pretty good week!  We had several of our favorite meals like saucy chicken, smothered chicken, and crockpot roast, carrots and potatoes. The hubby was doing a lot of late nights at work so that made for a hectic week last week. Hopefully this week will be more of a normal week, despite having something planned for each day.

Last week I did a big trip of grocery shopping I shopped all on one day and now my freezer and pantry shelves are full!  I will still need to go to the store for milk and eggs but that should be the extent of the shopping I do for the next couple of weeks!


I have taken the time to do an inventory of what I have and actually planned out TWO weeks of meals rather than just one.  It should be very interesting if I can stick to the full two weeks of meals or if we get sidetracked.  I wrote them down on the different days in pencil so we can adjust things if we need to should a day not go as planned. My reasoning behind doing the two week plan is so that I can use up several items in my freezer by doing some baking rather than shopping.

This week’s meals are simple and using what I have on hand in the freezer and pantry.   I am hopefully going to empty things out of my freezer enough to be able to refill it with “baking goodness”.  I have 4 lbs of blueberries, 8 cups shredded zucchini, and like 20 mashed bananas that I need to use up in the next couple of months so that I can restock those items for the winter months.


This week’s lunches that are listed below are for the kids and me! Unless we are having leftovers, our lunches are served with apple slices or carrot sticks along with fruit juice or water.  Hubby usually takes a dinner leftover along with various snacks for his work lunch so I don’t take the time to really plan his lunches. I just take the next container of leftovers in the stack in the fridge that I have prepared ahead of time.
