Meal Plan – April 23-27

Not that I’ve been forgetting to post a meal plan weekly, its just that I haven’t really been making one! With 2 weeks off for Spring Break, I admit, I got a little lazy with making meals for my family. Don’t worry, they still ate!

Monday: Chicken and Noodles with Vegetables. Simple. Crock-pot. That is all.

Tuesday: Enchiladas. I’ve made another kind of her enchiladas before and they were delicious! So, these should be to!

Wednesday: Eat at church night!

Thursday: This is a meal that you need to wear your elastic waist pants to the dinner table! Salisbury steak with comforting sides of mashed potatoes and peas.

Friday: It’s the start of the weekend. You’ve worked hard all week. Let’s simplify with the love and ease of homemade pizza, heck, let’s make it a Deep Dish pizza!

There you go my friends. Enjoy!

What’s on your dinner table this week?

It’s Just Another Site

I am sure you’ve heard of Pinterest, right? If not, then you’re either still in Winter hibernation or just in denial. I love this site because it helps me figure out meal plans, crafts for the kids, how I want to organize/clean/decorate my house and play dress up in my virtual closet. Fun and fancy, right?! But, now, I’ve been lingering at similar sites.

This first one is foodgawker. Where you can find bajillions of recipes in every category you can imagine. We all need to eat, right?

Second; craftgawker. Where you can explore and excel in the possibilities of becoming the craftiest person ever!

Third; dwellinggawker. Need to spice up the bedroom? Add some flare to your kitchen? This site will help you get fabulous ideas that you want to decorate your house.

And finally, if you are planning your wedding or a wedding, or maybe you want to renew your vows with you beloved. This site is for you! Weddinggawker

You’re welcome.

Whatever you find at each of these sites you can always pin them to your boards on Pinterest.

P.S. Gawker means; to gape or stare stupidly. Well, yeah…..

So, get on gaping!

Meal Plan – March 12-16

This comic made me laugh! Sometimes I want to charge the princess and 3 jesters for what they don’t eat or don’t finish eating! But, with this weeks’ meal plan, they might just eat what I make every night!

Monday: Penne chicken with veggies. Using zucchini and broccoli as the veggies and a sprinkle or two of Parmesan cheese on top. Simple.

Tuesday: Homemade pizza. I’m going to try Emeril’s basic pizza dough. I have never made pizza dough before, and this recipe looked real basic and simple!

Wednesday: Eat at church night!

Thursday: Tacos. We need something real quick. The princess has a Chorus concert!

Friday: Creamy Chicken TaquitosI’ve always wanted to make taquitos and these look yummy!

What’s on your meal plan this week?

Meal Plan: March 5-9

It’s been eons since I last posted a meal plan on here, actually any kind of post. There are various reasons that I can give you, but, let’s just cut to the chase and tell you what our dinner plans are for this week!

Monday: Baked Ravioli. This dish looks so easy and delicious, plus ravioli is one of my favorites!

Tuesday: Good ole’ Roast with potatoes and carrots simmering in a crock-pot all day….need I say more?

Wednesday: Eat at church night! Yay! A night off!

Thursday: Poppy Seed Chicken Pitas This is a quick, simple dinner to put together. Toss a fruit salad together and you have a well-rounded, balanced meal.

Friday: Sesame Chicken I’ve been kind of on a “Martha” kick, and since my kids love this type of Chinese food, this recipe looked like one they would enjoy made at home.

I hope these meals can be useful to you and your family! If you have a meal plan for this week, I would love to hear what you are cooking up in your kitchen for your family!

Meal Plan: October 24-28

I am pretty excited about this week’s meals that we are going to have! With Fall in full swing that means two things; crock-pot and soup. I have a very healthy relationship with my crock-pot and I love the comfort that soup gives you at the end of the day!

Monday: Taco Soup. This needs no introduction or explanation. It is what it is. Delicious.

Tuesday: Making a homemade pizza for the family. I’ll be attending the Women’s Fall dinner at our church. Simple and not so time consuming so I can dart out the door!

Wednesday: I usually don’t make a meal on Wednesday, but I am this week. Mexican Chicken. Can’t get enough of Paula!

Thursday: Simple, light and tasty; BLT.

Friday: Beginning the week with soup and ending it with this soup; Broccoli and Cheese.

While you are here, there is still time for you to comment over here and win a coupon for a free pizza AND a pretty in pink set of earphones!

Meal Plan: October 3-7

Nothing fancy this week for our dinner plans, just tasty!

Monday: Tacos – a family favorite for all to enjoy!

Tuesday: Sweet and Sour Chicken – this recipe calls to make it all in the crock-pot, which I have never done it this way and I’m all about a meal thrown together in a big pot!

Wednesday: church night!

Thursday: Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake – this should be a hit for the kids. (crossing my fingers)

Friday: French Toast – I will always have a deep love for breakfast for dinner! I like the bread option for this recipe. And really, this could be a dessert! Maybe a side of eggs and bacon for a balanced meal, eh!?

I hope you can enjoy these yummy recipes just like we will!
