Menu Planning

Weekly Menu Plan – May 25, 2015

Menu Planning helps me cook healthy, delicious meals for our family and saves us a ton of money on groceries. Check out what's cookin' this week!We bought a new refrigerator finally so we’ve been eating in this week but it’s been delicious. Luckily we had some freezer meals that heated up well in the slow cooker while we were at the pool for 5-6 hours over the weekend! These kids might be part fish, I don’t know, they never want to leave the pool.

The only topic I like to chat about as much as books is food! If you have a menu plan or a delicious recipe you want to share, feel free to link it up with our Small Victories Sunday Linkup. I’m always looking for new recipes to try.

This Week’s Menu Plan:


Copycat Macaroni Grill Penne Rustica, garlic bread and salad


Spinach Cheese and Egg Muffins and toast with jelly

Asian Turkey Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries


Eggplant Parmesan with egg noodles and salad

Berry Spinach Salad with Strawberry Lime Vinaigrette

Zuppa Toscana Soup (Olive Garden Copycat recipe)

Simple Meal Planning - Plan to Eat
I have been loving Plan to Eat* to get my menu plan, recipes and shopping lists printed up fast! Highly recommend and you can try it out free for 30 days to see if you like it. It’s one of the May 2015 Goals to work on getting my abundant recipes collection organized so I will be using Plan to Eat a LOT this month. It makes it so much easier to search for a recipe and know where to find it!

I created a couple weekly planner printables to incorporate my menu plans into my week. Check them out and download for free if it will help you with your weekly goal and menu planning.

  3. Looks like you have a week of great meals going on…
    I create my meal plan on my google calendar, actually it has its own calendar. Makes it easier to see everything all at once. Stopping by from #SITSBlogging have a great day

    1. That’s a great idea Karen. Meal planning definitely makes my life easier especially when the little rugrats are hungry as soon as they get home from school. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I’m going to start meal planning as soon as we move into our new house next week. Not only will I not have to think about what I’m going to make for dinner every night, I’m hoping it will save me some money too! This is a great list and I can’t wait to try out some of these recipes, especially the berry spinach salad!
