My menu plan actually begins on grocery shopping day, which is Friday. I did the Kroger Clicklist again this week, and I'm fairly certain that I'm sold on this way of grocery shopping! I start my meal planning by looking at the Kroger deals/coupons and building from there. Then there are a few items that I haven't found at Kroger, and this week I shopped at Ingles for those few extras.
So here's what we're having this week:
FRIDAY - After cooking all week, I generally like to have something super easy on this night. We like the chicken salad at the Ingles deli, so I picked up a container of that along with some croissants. Done.
SATURDAY - This day was super busy. Started out with an early-morning planning meeting at church, then Amelia and Matthew both had basketball games, and we had a birthday party later in the afternoon/evening. We had leftovers for supper, but I cooked a couple of breakfast dishes to bring to the church meeting:
The first was Breakfast Burrito Casserole. I put this together on Friday evening, put it in the fridge, and then cooked it Saturday morning. This is an easy and tasty dish that someone shared with me at a brunch several years ago.
The recipe says to first saute onions, bell pepper and mushrooms and then add your breakfast meat (sausage, bacon or ham), but I used sausage and cooked the vegetables with the sausage. Then, using flour tortillas (10), fill each one with meat mixture and sharp cheddar cheese and roll loosely, keeping the ends open. Place in casserole dish. Mix together 6 eggs and 2 cups of half & half and pour over burritos. Sprinkle with cheese, however much you prefer. Cover with foil and place in fridge overnight, and then the next morning cook at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove foil and cook for an additional 10 minutes, making sure the eggs are set.
I also made the Pioneer Woman Cinnamon Rolls. Yum!
SUNDAY - I've been making these modified grilled cheese sandwiches for several years. The original recipe was in one of those copycat recipe books - maybe an Applebee's recipe? But I switched it up slightly just to make it a little easier.
Using two slices of Italian sliced bread, put mayo on one slice and barbecue sauce on the other. Put cheese (I buy a block of sharp and then shred it) on one slice, and then layer turkey deli meat (or ham or both), a slice of tomato, and more cheese. Next, add the other slice of bread on top. Melt butter in a skillet and cook on each side until cheese is melted. This is a family favorite!
MONDAY - Beef Enchiladas, Rice
TUESDAY - Creamy Ranch Chicken (Slow Cooker), Mac & Cheese, Salad
WEDNESDAY - [Eat at church.]
THURSDAY - Taco Soup (Slow Cooker)
So that's what I'm planning to feed my family for supper this week. Visit The Organizing Junkie for more menu plans. Thanks for stopping by!
