Weekly Meal Plan
Lookie here – another post… who knew?!! I am on fire with planning my deals and meals and figured I may as well blog about it so I hold myself accountable!
This week RA has some GREAT deals with the new GAME starting, see them HERE.
I also see that both Sav-a-lot (all week – frozen) and Aldi (fresh on Thursday) have boneless, skinless chicken breast for only $1.49/lb… Certainly will have to check that out!
Tops advertises a great deal on Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage at B2G3 FREE, that will probably equate to less than $1.50 per ‘rope’. (They also show chicken for $1.99/lb if the others are a bust)
I have a few friends who do such an awesome job on the TOPS match-ups, Check them out:
With these deals in mind, I planned my WEEKLY MEALS:
Monday: Vegetable Beef Soup
I made some awesome Roast Beef for our Christmas Dinner and we have already had leftovers in sandwiches, so now I will use the rest to make a big ole’ pot of Vegetable Beef Soup (recipe HERE) which we’ll have with some fresh crusty rolls. *As always I will make triple the amount of soup needed… some for the freezer and some to thicken even further and make a shepherd’s pie later in the week
Tuesday: Dinner OUT – Steak Roast
New Year’s Eve Dinner (and our 14th Wedding Anniversary) – kids get pizza and snacks with Grandma and we go to an awesome get together (30+ for dinner this year!!)where we have a Steak Roast with all the yummy appetizers you can imagine, totally our favorite night out!!!
Wednesday: Baked Chicken and my Cowboy Caviar
New Year’s Day, nice lazy day – looking forward to the rest of the week off and doing some FUN projects around the house / Baked Chicken (will make a few extra breasts to make baked alfredo chicken later in the week) and my Cowboy Caviar (recipe HERE) – which is as close to the traditional black eyed peas as I get today. Get ready with all those resolutions (re-reading mine HERE from last year and vowing to make it all occur again)! How about you??
Thursday: Shepard’s Pie
Taking the soup from earlier in the week and thickening it up to make the Shepard’s Pie (recipe to follow) – Super Yummy!
Friday: Chicken Alfredo
Using the chicken made earlier in the week to make a creamy baked Chicken Alfredo (recipe to follow) as my inspiration is a recipe I have been tweaking to our tastes for a while…
Saturday: Stuffed Baked Peppers
Another “We’re still Celebrating” Christmas Party… Cannot wait to see the friends I did not get to see enough of over the holidays! There is always delicious food and I will make my friend Heidi’s Stuffed Baked Peppers for an awesome appetizer (recipe to follow)! Lucky kids will have another sleep over with PIZZA of course… LOL!
Sunday: Turkey Dinner
Of course I have 8 more 20 lb. turkeys in my freezer from the Thanksgiving sales and love having the leftover turkey (shredded and frozen) for all my week night chicken dishes. I also have to “pay” my Momma back for 2 (maybe even 3) sleep over baby sittings this week… LOL… works for all of us!
Wow – feeling much better about another crazy week ahead now that I have this all planned out… How about you? What are you eating this week??
