Keeping Up With...Food (Menu Plan 3/7 - 3/13)

So last week started off amazing and then on Thursday I went to cook dinner and realized that I didn't have a few key ingredients for the planned meal.  And I also didn't want anything to do with the chicken I had thawed out.  So we made Greek salads for dinner that night.  Then on Friday I forgot to set up and start my crock pot meal and didn't feel like cooking at all so Adrian picked up Firehouse subs on his way home.  Saturday we had to use the thawed chicken so we decided to try this Thai Chicken Pizza - it was amazing!  Sometimes things don't go as planned and end up working out better in the end.  Today we're back on our schedule.
This week I'm trying to start using up some of the things that are in our fridge and freezer in preparation for our upcoming trip.  I also need to make the two meals that I didn't make last week and have everything bought for.  It's a fairly light week for us, at least as of right now.  We're in between sports, hockey has ended and baseball hasn't started yet so we have some downtime.  Baseball will pick up very soon for all 3 boys and we'll be running like crazy.

Here's what we're eating this week:
Monday - Chicken Pot Pie - didn't get to this last week
Tuesday - Taco Tuesday!
Wednesday - Squash Stew - didn't get to this last week
Thursday - Pepperoni Eggs
Friday - Pasta to finish up some leftover sauce in the freezer
Saturday - Sausage for Adrian, AJ & Daniel.  Zak & I have a birthday party for one of his friends
Sunday - Turkey Reubens and Salads - I will be at training all afternoon and don't want to have a complex dinner to prepare.

Water flavor - Orange/Lemon - I have a few lemons left over from my free bag and I got a great deal on oranges this week.

Meal prep - I am making this quiche today for our breakfasts for the week.  I will actually make two and freeze one for later.  I am also making the chicken pot pie today so that just has to be popped in the oven tomorrow.

As always, I'm linking up with Laura at Mommy, Run Fast.  Go check out the other blogs on the link up for some more yummy recipes!  Have a great week!!


  1. We definitely have weeks like that when things don't go as planned or neither of us feels like cooking! Hope this one is a good week!

  2. I hate that feeling when I realize I forgot a key ingredient for a meal! Sounds like everything worked out anywhere. Your meal plan for this week sounds great!

    1. Thanks! So far everything has been really good. And I'm on track to make everything, which doesn't always happen.
