Common steps to avoid when meal planning
- Before going to the grocery store be sure to take stock in the items you have on-hand. Don't waste money purchasing things you already have! Copy off the list and make a quick check to be sure before shopping.
- Making multiple trips to the grocery store - If you're like me, every time I walk in the store I spend anywhere from $25-$50 on stuff I didn't even know I wanted or needed. Stick to the list and shop once!
- Choosing meals that work for your family. Incorporate the plan below and if it doesn't work out to make Turkey Meatballs on Monday, switch it around. Allow yourself flexibility!
- Not using your leftovers. Each week we'll make meals and use those leftovers.
Have questions? Don't fret, just pop me an email and I'll walk you through the process! You'll can email me at email@example.com.
Weekly Meal Plan 2
January 9 - Turkey Meatballs
Packed with flavor, these baked meatballs in a cast iron skillet are tasty! This is another recipe that freezes great as well. Broil the meatballs so they get nice and browned, then simmer them in your favorite red sauce.
If you're looking for a more substantial meal, top spaghetti or linguine with the sauce and meatballs. Save half the meatballs for dinner Wednesday night.
Serve your homemade meatballs with a lovely side salad!
This fresh garden salad includes a lovely homemade vinaigrette. If you don't want to make your own salad dressing, no problem, use your favorite. That works too!
January 10 - BBQ Shredded Chicken
Quesadillas are for dinner tonight using Pressure Cooker Shredded Chicken Recipe No pressure cooker? No problem! Add all of the ingredients to your crockpot, and cook on low for 8 hours. It's just as easy and delicious!
Add an extra chicken breast so so there will be plenty of leftovers for later this week. I always double this recipe and freeze leftovers in batches. It freezes great!
For the quesadillas, pile shredded Monterey Jack cheese on the tortilla, top with shredded chicken and more cheese. Add a tortilla to the top. Grill in a dry skillet over medium heat until golden brown, flip and grill on side two.
Serve with these yummy quesadillas with salsa, bbq sauce or pollo tropical cilantro garlic sauce for dipping - YUM! We love this meal.
January 11 - Slow Cooker Pork Chops
January 12 - Meatball Sliders
Now it's time to make use of your leftover Turkey Meatballs! Sliders are for dinner tonight! If you don't have leftovers, just pick up some frozen meatballs. Follow this recipe for step-by-step instructions for this meal!
A BLT Pasta Salad would go great with these sliders.
January 13 - Homemade Pizza
After you've made the crust (best if made the day before), top the pizza with ¾ cup bbq sauce, then 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese, 2 cups of leftover shredded chicken and thinly sliced red onions. That's it! Bake at 400 degrees until the pizza crust is golden brown and the cheese bubbly and melted.
This pizza is EXCELLENT and tastes like a pie from California Pizza Kitchen. Enjoy!
January 14 - Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin
I love this meal! It's got great flavor and a complete meal all in one! Pork Tenderloin, sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts tossed with an easy brown sugar dry rub.
Serve with Cheesy Pizza Hut Breadsticks - easy to make and delicious!
January 15 - Homemade Chili
Dessert - Lemon Bars
This family recipe for Lemon Bars is tried and true!
Make this on Sunday and you'll enjoy snacking on these little gems all week long.
This makes a big sheet pan, so if you have a smaller family (like us!) just pop half in the freezer for another week.
