What are we eating this week? -- a re-do of last week

f the things that I want to do in 2016 is to plan our dinner menus weekly and post them here for accountability.Breakfasts are usually yogurt and fruit or cereal and fruit for the kids and Bill and I find whatever we are in the mood for. Lunch is usually something quick for Benjamin (chicken nuggets, corn dog, PB and J) with fruit and leftovers for Bill and I. During the school year, Rebecca and Jacob get free lunch at their school. That leaves dinner for the family....

I started menu planning at the beginning of the year and I will say that with a few exceptions, it has worked!


MONDAY::: Ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots--NOPE

TUESDAY::: Chicken patty sandwiches, waffle fries, pears---NOPE

WEDNESDAY::: Hamburger helper and peas-- NOPE

THURSDAY::: Fish, Velveeta shells and cheese, broccoli--NOPE

FRIDAY::: Pizza rolls and fruit-- Yes, although the kids had pizza rolls and waffle fries

SATURDAY::: Chili and grilled cheese-- NOPE

SUNDAY::: Chicken and cheese casserole and green beans-- NOPE
Well last week was a loss except for Friday. Dealing with the stomach flu ALL WEEK LONG meant that at some meals most of us were not eating and at other meals I didn't feel well enough to make what was planned. Oh well. You have weeks like that. That made planning for this upcoming week rather easy as I just transferred everything to this coming week with a couple of changes. :)  Thankfully, we all seem to be on the mend, so hopefully I can stick to the plan this week.

                      So what are we having this week??

MONDAY::: Ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots

TUESDAY::: grilled chicken and salad

WEDNESDAY::: Hamburger helper and peas

THURSDAY::: Fish, Velveeta shells and cheese, broccoli

FRIDAY::: Pizza

SATURDAY::: Chili and grilled cheese

SUNDAY::: This is Super Bowl Sunday which is a National Holiday according to my dear hubby. I will make him chicken wings and am not sure what I am going to make the kids and I yet. 
I tend to make our menus out on Sunday night to go from Monday to Sunday. I usually go to the grocery store one day during the week (usually Wednesday but sometimes another day). I have everything I need for this menu!

Hopefully, I will be able to stick to this plan and can report back success next week! 

Do you menu plan? 
Do you have a favorite dinner to share? 



  1. Super Bowl Sunday is a holiday here too and TheHub already wants to know what's for dinner. I keep telling him I have no idea since it is not Sunday yet.

  2. My dh asked for chicken wings for the big game. With everyone in your family will just surviving the week is a good thing. Cheryl
