Meal Plan Monday: Relying on Leftovers and Precooking to Make It Through the Week

Meal Plan Monday

After several meal plan failures last week, I am determined not to fall down the mealtime rabbit hole this week.  I was exhausted after work each day, and I need to make sure that something is ready to microwave or toss in the oven if the same thing happens this week.

I’m going to try two new dishes, one a slow cooker dish and one not, but I have hopes that both will last most of the week.  Also, we are hoping (after two failed starts) to eat a hot dog for supper at the new Sam’s Club that opened Thursday.  It is now the closest grocery store to our house.

Saturday:  baked smoked sausage with cheese (cut the sausage part of the way through, fill with cheese, and bake), Caesar salad (from a kit bought as reduced produce at Kroger), strawberries, baked garlic bread (made from hot dog buns)

Sunday:  breakfast for supper fried ham slices/bacon/or homemade sausage, biscuits, eggs, fruit, tomato slices, eggs

Monday:  hot dog and drink at Sam’s

Tuesday:  Chicken Spaghetti Casserole (from The Recipe Girl Cookbook but it is not the same one found on the website)

Wednesday:  Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches (from The Recipe Girl Cookbook and the Recipe Girl website)

Thursday:  leftovers

Friday:  leftovers/pizza grilled cheese/hot dogs

Saturday:  grilled something

Sunday:  fish and fries

As always, I plan to link up with OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday.
