Meal Plan Monday - 2013 Week 24

I am fresh off four days away for a work trip. What that means for Meal Planning, is that I probably didn't follow much of last week's plan, I have no idea what in my refrigerator is still good, and I need inspiration and groceries for THIS week (meaning NOW).

So here's how I approached it: I took stock and threw out the bad. Looked at what Main Dish items I had on-hand, made a list of side items and things that have gone bad or we ran out of. Not a bad plan, and in the end it shook it out like this:

Monday - Baked Salmon, Asparagus and Salad
Tuesday - Tortellini
Wednesday - Chicken Cutlets, Potato Medley Salad  (recipe to come)
Thursday - Pork Tenderloin (on grill if weather cooperates) with Quinoa & veggies
Friday - Pizza Night
Saturday & Sunday - TBD

I am also starting to think about lunches . . . the kids have four half-days for the remainder of school and will need to bring lunch to camp this summer. I am terribly uncreative at kids' lunches, and my kids don't care for sandwiches. . .what are your favorite kid lunch ideas?

catch you soon -

This post is linked up at I'm An Organizing Junkie, a great place for ideas and inspiration, or to share your own Meal Plan.


  1. I like that. I am always trying to figure it out from day to day. Having a set meal plan would save a lot of time and money.

    1. Shelley - some days I just cannot come up with a THING! But I make myself plan - we waste a lot less and are saving money as well!


  2. Smart to plan ahead... I hate throwing away stuff that doesn't get used in time!! Or, just as bad-- not having the one thing you need.

    1. Oh Victoria - we were throwing away so much food it was a sin. . .we are still not that great with leftovers. . .so I am trying to cut down on the size of the meals I'm making.

  3. I suck at meal planning. I am working on a review for a meal delivery service, much more up my alley :)
