Meal Plan Monday: A Mix of Old and New

Meal Plan Monday

The less said about last week’s failure to follow the meal plan, the better.  As always, I had the best of intentions.  But life and exhaustion and getting over the crud/allergies/cold/sinus interfered.  We ate on Easter leftovers Monday and Tuesday.  I think Muffin and I ate out on Wednesday and Thursday.  On Friday, I made pizza spiral rolls, cinnamon bun style, using refrigerated pizza dough, pasta sauce, mozzarella, chopped up pepperoni, and black olives.  That was Muffin’s most favorite meal that I had made in a long time.

But, let’s shake off last week’s funk with this week’s new offerings:

Saturday:  shredded pork with garlic sauce, rice, egg roll


Sunday:  stuffed baked potato (with chili, broccoli, sauteed onions, bacon, sour cream, cheese)

Monday:  bean and rice burritos (I’m going to add some taco meat), chips, and salsa

Tuesday:  Pizza Meatball Subs (I love these!) with a Subway-style topping bar, chips, vegetable sticks

Wednesday:  La Madeleine-style tomato-basil soup, grilled cheese sandwich, salad

Thursday:  hot dogs or leftovers (of course!)

Friday:  English muffin pizzas, salad, corn

Saturday:  Chicken au Champagne (I found this using Pinterest), a green vegetable, crescent rolls or homemade rolls

Sunday:  a roast of some kind, vegetable, potato (maybe roasted), roll

In terms of make-ahead for this week, I made ahead the meatballs for the subs, rice for the burritos (when I made the rice for the Shredded Pork with Garlic Sauce), and the tomato-basil soup on Saturday.
