Easy Family Meal Plan 2018 Week 11

Weekly Family Meal Plan 2018 Week 11

Happy Monday meal planners . . .sorry for the late in the day posting again! I prepare most of my meal plan on Saturday, but somehow I can't seem to get it up on the blog before Monday evening! My planning process is to plan on Saturday morning, using our upcoming schedule and the weather. Then I have BOTH Saturday and Sunday to pick up anything we may need.

One of the things I dislike about the whole meal planning process is going to different stores. Currently, I buy a majority of my groceries from three stores: Giant, Trader Joe's and Target. How many stores do you shop at?? I'd love to cut it down to one, but I don't really think I can.

Easy Family Meal Plan 2018 Week 10

Weekly Family Meal Plan 2018 Week 10

Happy Monday meal planners! I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to hit the week off running.  There is just something about starting Monday off with a plan, that makes me feel organized and in control of my week. Any one else with me?

I put together this plan over the weekend, before I knew there was going to be more snow this week. In case you live somewhere other than the northeast, we had a wicked nor-easter move through on Friday. Many people are STILL without electricity, just in time for another storm to move through on Wednesday.

But I am over winter and holding strong to my meal plan. Keep your fingers crossed that our grill isn't buried in snow on Thursday!  Last week's winner was the One-Pan Roasted Garlic Potatoes and Sausage. Three out of four of us liked it, which makes it a total win!

Here's what we have planned for this week:

Easy Family Meal Plan 2018 Week 9

Weekly Meal Plan 2018 Week 9

Welcome back meal planners! Better late than never for posting this week's meal plan right? I'm sorry if you were looking for inspiration for tonight's dinner. . .Monday morning posting just isn't agreeing with me lately.

BUT - I am still all in for meal planning to save myself time and money. I'm adding a few things to my regular rotation, like last week's Instant Pot Fried Rice. It didn't work out how I had planned, but I ended up making it over the weekend and threw in the leftover pork tenderloin . . .SO yummy and super easy!  Next up is trying it with some shrimp!

I have one new recipe planned this week, on Monday. I couldn't find asparagus at my grocery store, so I substituted in pea pods. Sometimes you have to adjust your plan a bit . . .but just keep moving forward and trying your best. When you hit upon a winner, move it into rotation every 2-3 weeks. A base of 12-15 recipes/favorite dishes will get you through a month, cooking 3-4 meals a week.
