Menu Plan for the Week 8/7 – 8/13


Since we spent all last week at the lake with my family, the kids and I didn’t do our summer travel plan. What does that mean? It means you get my menu plan this week.

I’m planning to go back to posting my menu each week anyway as soon as the kids get back into school. I figured I might as well get a head start this week.

Even after being away from home all last week and needing to do some grocery shopping, I’m hoping to pull off these meals this week. Also a couple of recipes this week are experimental. I’m trying to make a few of our favorites a little more healthy. I guess we’ll see how that goes 🙂

Here’s whats cooking this week:



  • Sunday No real plan (Just got back into town….snacks & fruit)
  • MondaySlow-cooker Beef Stew
  • Tuesday – Chicken & Dumplings
  • WednesdayLasagna Casserole
  • ThursdayWaffle Sandwiches (I’m using homemade waffles.)
  • Friday – Greek Gyros (I’m still looking for a good recipe. You got one?)
  • Saturday – Homemade Macaroni & Cheese, Mini Meat Loaves, Corn

Lunches usually consist of leftovers from the night before, or grilled cheese quesadillas on whole wheat tortillas, fruit, and other quick fix foods.

I’m so glad to be back home and to get back into a normal routine again, even if it’s for only one week. My babies are going back to school next week, so we’ll be having to find a new normal and a new routine all over again.

What’s on your menu this week?

    I also menu plan- but not for breakfast-I will have to think about that! I want to try your recipe for cinnamon swirl bread. I cook mostly from scratch- but have not found my breadmaking groove yet. But every time I go to Costco and stock up on bread, I think, “we could save a ton of money if I made all our bread from scratch”.

    School starts in 2 weeks for us- I hate to see the summer end.
