Weekly Meal Plan

Monday- We ate out since it was a holiday!

These turned out so yummy! I used pita pockets and this cucumber dill dip for the sauce. I served it with a Greek salad!
 Wednesday- I had planned to make Doritos Taco Salads, but I didn't have enough lettuce. So, I improvised and just kind of made something up! It ended up being pretty good and was filling. 

I cooked ground beef and added black beans and a jar of salsa. I layered Doritos on the bottom of the casserole dish. Then, I added the meat mixtures. Topped with shredded cheese and then more crushed Doritos. Bake for about 20 minutes. I served it with brown rice, so it ended up being kind of like a burrito bowl.
 Thursday- I made Crockpot Broccoli Cheddar Soup. This was pretty good! It was my first time making this. I did have to add about 1/2 cup of flour at the end to thicken it up a bit. I didn't serve anything with this and I think if I made it again I would make a panini or baked potato with it!
Friday-Like usual, was pizza night! Again, we had Papa Murphy's deLite pizza.

Saturday- We love going out to eat on Saturdays!

Weekly Meal Plan

I'm going to try to start posting the meals we've eaten each week in an effort to help me with meal planning! So, here's what we ate last week!

This was SOOO good! Definitely will make this again! We topped it with sour cream, cheese, and a few Fritos! It made great leftovers, too!


Wednesday- I had Bunco! So, no cooking for me!

Thursday- Shrimp and Grits
This has been a new dish that I've made the last two weeks and it's delicious and easy!
I just use the Five Minute grits. I cook them in the microwave and when they are finished I add a tablespoon of butter and 1 cup of cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted and combined. Then, I use frozen precooked shrimp that I've thawed. I heat up a little butter and garlic in the skillet on medium. Then, I toss the shrimp for a bit. Not too long, since they're already cooked. Then, top the grits with the shrimp! That's it! It's so yummy!

Friday- Pretty much always pizza night! Lately, we've been getting Papa Murphy's deLite cheese pizza because it's so much healthier and it's really yummy!

Saturday- Out

I made chocolate chip banana muffins, omelets, and bacon.

 I even had a cute sous chef for these! :)

I try to use the same pattern each week. This makes planning a lot easier!

Monday-Thursday: cook, leftovers at least one day
Friday- Pizza
Saturday- out
Sunday- some type of breakfast for dinner
