Hi!  Welcome back to our menu plan for the week.  I don’t claim to be fancy or a gourmet cook, so if you want that, you are in the wrong place.   I serve simple, healthy meals that our kids will eat (yay!)

A variety of cookbooks and a planner on a table with text above them.

Monday – we ate out (our one day a week dinner out) at our favorite restaurant where kids eat free. 🙂

Tuesday-   Coconut Tilapia & cilantro lime rice … Let me be pretty up front about this one:  I do not eat seafood, except shrimp (and that is only when Mickey has gotten it completely ready to go- no tail, no shell… just ready to be eaten).    I do, however love the cilantro lime rice, so while Mickey and the kids eat the Tilapia, I’ll be eating a baked Chicken Breast.


Wednesday – So tonight is going to be a busy night, so we will be having breakfast for dinner!   What does this mean?
Crazy Pancakes, bacon and smoothies.  

Thursday-   We are making the kids these fun Jack-o-Lantern Grilled Cheese sandwiches and serving it with tomato soup (homemade).

Friday- Chicken Pot Pie.  This is my mom’s recipe.  It is quick and so good.  I could probably eat it every night of the week, seriously!
Ps- I use Simply Sour Cream, by Kraft (it is the best, in my opinion)

Saturday Low calorie Garlic Shrimp  – this one is really good & very light, which you might want on a Saturday if you have given yourself permission to have an extra dish of ice cream.

Sunday-  Baked chicken (just season it with a little salt & pepper & bake it at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until the juices run clear).   Serve it with cooked sweet potatoes and grilled asparagus.  

Did you miss a week?  

Check out week 1, week 2 ,  week 4 (this one), week 3, week 5.

  1. Simple and easy! I’m working on my meal plan for next week. Ready to make it work and save money!

  2. I’m working on my first real meal plan now. Can’t wait to start it and save money. We are literally eating our money up every week buying food without a plan.
