Menu Plan Monday - January 29

Done early, thankyouverymuch! :-) We needed to do some grocery shopping on Saturday for N2's 1st birthday luncheon with the grandparents and family on Sunday, so I needed to go ahead and plan for the coming week. It feels so good to have this done! :-) There are several new meals on here this time round. I purchased from Saving Dinner two of their Freezer Meal menu mailers to try out. I've not had much success with preparing meals that would freeze well and I want to test out several before baby #3 comes. (I purchased Five for the Freezer Chicken Recipes, Vol 1 and Mega Menu Mailer Vol. 1, which is 22 varied recipes).

Monday: Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti (making one 9x13 and one 8x8 pan so I can take a meal to a friend); bag salad

Tuesday: Son of Manic Meatloaf from Saving Dinner, mashed potatoes, green beans

Wednesday: BBQ Crockpot Chicken from Saving Dinner, with rice, carrots and peas

Thursday: Cowboy Chow from Busy Cooks Lowfat Cookbook, salad

Friday: Pizza

Saturday: Either breakfast dinner or clean-out-the-fridge night

Sunday: Lunch will probably be soup and sandwiches in anticipation of dinner treats while we watch the Superbowl! Snacks that I'm planning to make that this point are personal pizzas on English muffins, party pinwheels, veggies and dip, and chips and dip.


  1. Your menu looks delicious this week! I'm curious about the Chicken Spaghetti dish that you are preparing today and sharing with a friend. IF this is a newbie, let us know how you like it. I'm always looking for great recipes to fix for friends, too!

  2. wow, i didn't realise people actually DID mealplans. that's impressive.

  3. I've never heard of Saving Dinners. How cool!

    Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

  4. Your menu looks great this week. You will have to let us know how you like Saving Dinners, because we have one near us. I thought of doing it a few times, but have heard mixed reviews.

    Have a great Monday!

  5. I need to come up with some good "superbowl food" here. Thanks for your menu.

  6. I want that Chicken Spaghetti recipe....I have Saving Dinner, too! Is it in there? BTW, we all enjoyed your easy crockpot beef thingy. I added carrots and potatoes, too!

  7. Looks like you'll be eating some yummy things this week. I reckon my family needs to sit down and make a weekly menu cos we're always saying 'hmm, what shall we have for dinner?!!' We ended up having a takeaway the other night (our first in ages) because we just felt so uninspired!
