Meal Plan Monday… Eat out of the Freezer

April 16, 2012


Happy Monday to you!  It is a new week full of new adventures and times to enjoy! Unfortunately I am starting mine at the dentist this morning and the podiatrist this afternoon.  <SIGH> It could be a lot worse! Smile

I have a question for you?  Do you have a plan for the week?  Do you know what you are going to eat?  If not, I encourage you to sit down and plan out your meals for the week.  This is a great way to start and by doing so, you will save money at the grocery store, by only purchasing what you need for the week. Be sure to shop your pantry first! 

Another way to save money is to freeze your leftovers and incorporate these into your meal plan during the week.  Leftovers are great for nights that you have church, sports practice, or other extra curricular activities.  This week, I am feeding my family off of the leftovers in our freezer.  By doing this, I only had to buy some fresh produce and a couple other items that we ran out of and I only spent $32 at the grocery store.  This is my kind of shopping trip!!!

Here is our plan for the week:


Eggs and Toast

Pancakes and Green Smoothies

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

French Toast and Sausage

Breakfast Burritos


Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, Fruit

Turkey Wraps, Carrot Sticks

Mini Pizzas, Fruit

Macaroni and Cheese, Hot Dogs, Carrot Sticks

PB&J Sandwiches, Cheez-It’s, Fruit


Sliced Apples with Peanut Butter

Cheese Slices with Pretzels

String Cheese and Smoothies

Veggie Tray

Dried Fruit and Nuts


Chicken Stew and Shrimp Stew

Beef Roast, Rice and Gravy, Salad

Leftover Chicken or Shrimp Stew

BBQ Ribs and Rice, Salad

Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Rice, Egg Rolls

Black Bean Soup

Grilled Chicken Fajita’s


Apple Dump Cake

Happy Eating!
