Meal planning and prepping tips
If you're new here...
Every week, I share a free meal plan for you to use the following week. You'll have seven main dish recipes, along with a few extras and of course dessert.
Typically the weekly meal plans are named by number of the week and date. For example, if the plan is for the first week of January, I'll name it Weekly Meal Plan 1 - Jan 3-9. Next year the plans will be updated for the corresponding dates and tasty new recipes!
Don't forget - if you have a busy day and plan on eating out, just drop a day off the menu and adjust the meal plan to fit YOUR busy life!
Here are some shortcuts and tips for this week's menu!
- Leftovers of broccoli soup and alphabet soup freeze great! The cheesy broccoli soup is also delicious over a baked potato. What a great way to repurpose leftovers!
- The ham and potato casserole is dynamite. It will last in your refrigerator for 3-4, plus it freezes GREAT!!
- Leftover fajitas are perfect for lunch on day two! You can also use them to make a yummy frittata!
- The pot sticker recipe makes a lot. Freeze extras before cooking on a sheet pan. When they are completely frozen, place in a ziplock bag and return to the freezer until you're ready to enjoy them.
- Make a batch of the Chocolate Covered Cashew Recipe and freeze them in snack freezer bags - they will last up to three months frozen!

If you have any leftover roasted broccoli from last nights meal, add it to the soup. It's a great repurpose of leftovers. Plus the roasted broccoli will add even more flavor.

A side of black beans would be fantastic too.
Serving the fajitas topped with red enchilada sauce take them right over the top!

Though this is really a meal in one, if you would like another side, serve roasted asparagus. That would be great with this casserole.
Be sure to thaw and bake some Dinner Rolls or grab a package of Hawaiian Rolls.
November 11 - Homemade Pot Stickers
These are fun to make and eat, you can get the whole family together and how to make homemade pot stickers! They steam quickly and you can gobble them up while watching movies Friday night!
Chicken Fried Rice would be terrific to serve with the potstickers.
