Meal Planning Week 1 & 2

I am so proud of myself! I’m finally doing some intentional meal planning! I have one full day home with no kids, and teach the other four days. I really need to make that one day count, so my plan is to plan/cook for the whole week on that day off. I did it for one week already and it was lovely.

The best part about a meal plan, is that if you keep track of what you do, you can go back after 6 or 8 weeks and just repeat your entire meal plan! Your work is done for you!! That’s one of the main reason I’m sharing this with you – to give me a reference point in a month or two!

My biggest issue is planning for busy week nights. Weekends tend to be more laid-back and simpler meals, so I don’t need to plan for those as much. I do like to cook meat ahead of time (BBQ or slow cooker) so it’s ready to work with on my cooking day.


Week One:

Monday: Leftover burgers from a weekend BBQ (bonus!!)

Tuesday: Sausage & Potato Bake

Wednesday: Sausage & Potato Bake again – everyone loves it, so I make enough for two meals

Thursday: Lasagna

Friday: Leftovers – a great time to clean out the fridge and use up what needs to be used up. I often make a package of Knorr Sidekicks to go with the leftovers.

Week Two:

Monday: BBQ Beef & Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

Tuesday: Sweet & Sour Pork

Wednesday: Peanut Chicken on Rice

Thursday: Chicken & Broccoli Shells

Friday: Leftovers


Happy Planning!

I live in Bowmanville, and am a mom to four young boys - it can get a little loud in my house. I am a Christian, a part-time French teacher, a piano teacher and former homeschooler. I love finding the best deals, which will come in handy when our boys become hungry teenagers! We just moved to a house with more outdoor space, and I'm still getting used to life in the country (a walk around the block is a lot longer here!).
