Menu Plan, March 14-20

After all the grocery shopping I did this week, our pantry and fridge are bursting at the seams. :) Here's what we'll be eating this week:

Breakfasts: Quiche, Breakfast Casserole, Bacon & eggs, cold cereal with bananas, whole wheat banana bread

Lunches: Salad with grilled chicken breast, chicken salad sandwiches with carrot sticks and apples, grilled cheese and tomato soup, leftovers

Snacks: whole milk yogurt with real maple syrup and fruit, True North snacks, granola bars, raw fruit and veggies, and Ben will probably have some Chex Mix (as I've said before, we keep the vast majority of our food very healthy--because of that, we're comfortable with an occasional unhealthy treat when it is purchased almost-free).

Sunday~at the farm
Monday~Fiesta Taco Casserole, steamed veggies
Wednesday~Chili with cornbread
Friday~homemade pizza, salad

Since we have a little family, making three dinners each week and having leftovers from each meal is working really well for us right now, so that's what I'm doing. I try to make sure to plan ahead and reheat things in the oven or on the stove to avoid microwaving our food all the time, though.

What are y'all eating this week? And, just out of curiosity, how many dinners do you make every week? Do you ever eat leftovers for dinner?

This post is linked to Menu Plan Monday.


  1. We're a family of six and usually make 6 or 7 meals each week. If we have enough leftovers, then we'll cook six times and try to do a night of leftovers - but often we do leftovers at lunch. Well, the children and I do the leftovers at lunch. My husband will rarely take leftovers to the office (he just doesn't like to for some reason). I think the plan you have right now sounds great!

  2. Just found your site at OrgJunkie - your menu looks great! I have a small family too - myself, hubby, 2-year-old and 1-year-old. I usually cook 4-5 meals a week and we have at least nights of leftovers each week.

  3. I tried the Fiesta Taco Caserole this week and Steve LOVED it. It is going to be a family favorite, I am sure. Thanks Mary Jo!!

    So glad y'all enjoyed it! We enjoy it. Plus, it's really easy, and depending on what ingredients you use, it can be really healthy!
