Meal plan for April 9th-15th
Happy Easter everyone! I hope today brings you lovely time with your family and/or friends. Jack and I are anxiously awaiting a morning phone call from one of his godmothers who will be calling from South Africa!
If you’re able to get out a Peep induced coma long enough to meal plan, here is what we’ll be having this week. Hope it brings you some inspiration.
Just a reminder, breakfasts for Troy and myself are either eggs, oatmeal, or smoothies. Jack eats breakfast at my aunt’s house. Lunches for Troy and myself are leftovers from the night before and a big container of carrots. Jack has the same thing: AB&J (homemade almond butter and jam), cheese, a little ham, a few bunny crackers, and maybe some dried fruit.
Monday:: Cast iron skillet frittata and home canned fruit.
Tuesday:: Crockpot Buffalo chicken sandwiches on homemade rolls, coleslaw, and home canned fruit.
Wednesday:: Home canned tomato soup from last year’s garden, paninis, salad, and sectioned grapefruits.
Thursday:: Homemade pizza, leftover coleslaw, and sectioned grapefruits.
Friday:: Popcorn and fruit on the couch while watching a movie from the library. I’ve given up on planning meals for Fridays.
Saturday:: Homemade gnocchi (maybe), salad, and fruit. My friend Anne is coming in for Jack’s birthday party and I’m going to try to make gnocchi for her. It is a good thing I did so many kegals while pregnant, or I would literally be peeing my pants in excitement for her to get here!
Sunday:: Jack’s birthday party! We’ll be serving homemade pizza, salad, some dips with chips, punch, and chocolate cake.
This week we spent $43.91 on groceries at the grocery store and $15 for raw milk and farm-fresh eggs. I spent $29 at the local butcher for pastured chicken.
I’ve never made a frittata. How do you do that? I’d love to try one!
You’re in luck – I’m planning to write about it on Thursday! It’s basically a simple egg “pie” with lots of goodies in it. It’s one of my favorite weeknight meals because it comes together within 20 minutes.
Meal planning is the best way to eat healthier and cheaper!
Now… If I could just better at advanced meal prepping, then I’d be good to go!!
I love how pretty much everything i homemade from scratch in your plan! I plan a few days in advance max, never really a week, but it’s always inspiring to see what pple have got planned!
I’m only able to head to the market once a week, so I have to plan 7 days in advance or all hell breaks loose!
Great plan!! And good wholesome eating! I think we all eat better when we PLAN our meals.
We’d definitely eat more poorly if I didn’t meal plan. Grabbing a pizza or takeout is very easy when it’s dinner time and nothing is ready!
