Menu Plan Monday

I am excited to announce a new addition to our family: a bigger refrigerator! And it’s a side-by-side too! We are keeping our teeny fridge/freezer in our garage/playroom and hope to use the extra space as a way to save $$! The idea is to save $100 a month in bulk deals and not going out to eat, and we’ll have paid for our fridge in 9 months. I think that will be no problem.

This week I pulled several recipes from the Nourishing Gourmet and Crunchy Procrastinating Perfectionist. I love that people will share their recipes ideas online. It is so neat — and easy — to find healthy recipes that taste good when you can look to real people for ideas! For TONS more ideas, check out Organization Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday!


Prep: Make Chicken Broth all day (freeze extra for future meals), set soup ingredients to soak overnight.

B — Scrambled Eggs

L — Bean Burritos and Sliced Pineapple

D — Salmon, Steamed Broccoli, Salad

Prep: Soak Oats before bed. Arrange Chicken Enchilada Casserole and keep in fridge.


B — Oatmeal

L — Bring Chicken Noodle Soup to visit Grandma

D — Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Prep: Get French Toast Casserole ready to go, soak overnight in fridge.


B — French Toast Casserole

L — To Go: PB and J, raw veggies and hummus (buy tortilla chips to dip too?), Activia if any left!

D — Chicken Noodle Soup (I am loving this with rice vermicelli — um, um, good!)


B — Golden Oats

L — Is there any soup left?  If not, quesadillas or bagels or….

D — (Crock Pot) Pot Roast


B — Crock Pot Breakfast Cereal

L — Leftover Pot Roast

D — Whole Wheat Pizza (I’ve never been successful at homemade whole wheat pizza crust. I actually really enjoyed the ease of gluten free pizza dough, but now that I am doing the wheat-challenge, I would like to try a more whole-grain pizza. I’ll update how this recipe works!)


B — Grape Nuts and Milk

L — Bring something to Whites’ picnic…?

D — Cheesy Ham and Rice Soup


B — Eggs and Toast

L — Leftovers or scrounge!

D — Cheesey Ham and Rice Soup Leftovers (quesadillas too if the soup is low).

I plan to try and make this recipe for healthy “Mounds” Candies~!
