Meal Plan Monday ...

It's time for Meal Plan Monday! Don't worry- Casey's NICU Journey blog post will be up later today. We haven't forgotten, we've just been out of town this weekend and didn't have a chance to post on Friday.

Harris Teeter had amazing deals this week so most of the ingredients for this week's menu came from there or Trader Joe's. Also, like I said, we were out of town from Friday to Sunday night, so we ate out once and had dinners with family on Saturday and Sunday.

Anyway, let's get down to it...
Friday: Five Guy's Hamburgers (for free thanks to coupons Casey picked up at a charity golf tournament)
Saturday: Surprise birthday party for my mother- BBQ sandwiches, yum!
Sunday: Bakes spaghetti at Mom's (and a Starbuck's coffee on the road back home!)
Monday: Spicy beef stir-fry with carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, bell peppers and onion. We had this two weeks ago- but after all the non-veggies we had this weekend, Hubs and I both were craving something veggie-centric.
Tuesday: Oven-roasted whole chicken with veggies from the freezer (cooked of course). We were supposed to have this last week; but in the mayhem of making a three tiered birthday cake it got lost in the chocolate butter creme. So, we'll have it this week.
Wednesday: Chili (Cold nights just beg for a good pot of chili, don't they?)
Thursday: Homemade pizza with leftover veggies, pepperoni and whatever else we feel like adding in the moment.

That's it! Of course, for better other ideas, you can visit Org Junkie for a giant list of other Meal Plans. And, like I said earlier, Casey's version of our Labor and Delivery part of the NICU story should be up later today or tonight.


  1. I've been looking for some ideas for meals to cook and then put extra in my freezer. When I read "BBQ sandwiches" it occurred to me thats what I can do with the leftover roast beef from this week. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This coming Saturday, I'm planning to cook several meals and put them away for later. I'll share ideas and recipes next week!!

  3. Spicy beef stir fry sounds good..we are having homemade pizza too! and you can't go wrong with 5 Guys.. I'm glad there isn't one by my house I'd be there way too often. lol
