Meal plan for October 8th – 14th

Share the love

Hey guys, did you have a nice weekend?  I got some time to myself on Saturday (so very rare) and cleaned up the garden a bit and got my garlic planted for the winter.  I’m excited to harvest them…in oh 10 months or so.

Saturday night was a birthday dinner at my sister-in-law’s house.  It was perfectly low-key, and I didn’t have to cook, clean up, or anything, so basically it was the best dinner ever.

Here is what we’ll be eating this week:

Monday:: Cashew chicken, rice, and lady lady egg rolls.

Tuesday:: Roast in the crockpot with carrots and potatoes (the spuds are from my garden!), dutch oven bread, and fruit.

Wednesday:: Mac and cheese (made it a few weeks ago and froze), sliced tomatoes (we still have loads of them in the garden), and a fruit.

Thursday:: Tacos (meat leftover from Tuesday), spanish rice, and black beans in the crockpot.

Friday:: Popcorn dinner!  Yay, my favorite dinner night of the week.

Saturday:: Charity spaghetti feed.  Yay!

Sunday:: Family dinner.  This week it will be at the gimp hut instead of my parent’s house.

I didn’t spend any money at the grocery store this week; I had everything in my freezer or cupboards already.  I did buy raw milk which was $3.50.  That’s about it!

What are you guys planning?

  1. Sounds delish. Question… I’m new to the gardening thing and live in south Florida where we can grow apparently all year. I have some (store bought) garlic the has sprouted… Can I plant that? If so, got any idea how?
    Thanks!

    • Technically, yes I think you can. A lot of store-bought produce has stuff sprayed on it to inhibit growth, so it could be a crapshoot. It might be worth it to hit up a farmer’s market and buy a few heads of local garlic to make sure it’s designed for your area.

      Also, I’m doing a post later this week about planting garlic, so hold tight for a few days!

  2. I have followed your blog for a while now and was just being nosy about popcorn night…do you seriously eat just popcorn for dinner?

  3. Looks great! I need to try your lazy egg roll recipe.

    We’re going to pretty much recycle last week’s menu, as my husband ended up being out of town for most of the week & I made more kid-friendly (translation – easy) things last week.

  4. Looks Good! I am going have to try your Cashew Chicken recipe. I am always looking for quick new recipes to try. Here is a link to my menu for the week.

  5. I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post
    is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble.
    You are wonderful! Thanks!
