Weekly Meal Plan {Week 19}


Happy Monday!  We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Here is what was on last week’s menu.  If you are just beginning to meal plan, check out how we meal plan.

Saturday:   We ordered a bunch of pizzas from a local pizzeria since we were having some friends over for dinner before trick-or-treating.

Sunday: We went to a birthday party where they had catered from Chipotle!  I was in heaven!


Monday: I made Cilantro Lime Salmon from Closet Cooking (please note that the picture of the salmon was taken prior to cooking!)We hadn’t had salmon in awhile so I was really looking forward to this.  Next time I’d make more sauce, as I had a big piece of fish and felt like there was barely enough sauce to cover the top of the salmon.  I also had a really thick piece of fish so the cooking time had to be adjusted.  This was tasty enough and I served it with rice and salad.

Queso Crockpot Chicken Chili

Tuesday:  I was at a staff development day for work all day.  The Weekend Chef was home with the kids and ended up making Queso Crockpot Chicken Chili from Pinch of Yum.  The recipe called for 3 bell peppers and a jalapeno, which seemed like a lot to me, so I only had him use 2 peppers.  We probably could have used all three and it wouldn’t have overwhelmed the dish like I thought it would.  We served this with tortilla chips.  I had never thought to use a chili as a dip with chips.  Let’s just say, although this was the first time eating chili with tortilla chips, it definitely won’t be the last!  Leftovers were just as good the next day!

30 Minute Honey Sriracha Chicken Bowl

Wednesday: I made {30 Minute} Honey Sriracha Chicken Rice Noodle Bowls from With Salt & Wit.  I replaced the rice noodles with lo mein noodles that we already had in our pantry.  I only added one tablespoon of the recommended 3 tablespoons of sriracha, for fear that it would be too spicy for the kids.  We all enjoyed this dish which was easy to put together.  My dish however, looked nothing like Megan’s!

Hot dog and fries

Thursday:  After working and taking my daughter to piano lessons, I was in no mood to cook dinner.  I heated up some hotdogs and served with French fries.  The only cooking I did was making a red onion sauce for the hotdogs!

Friday:  The kids had off from school and the Weekend Chef was home.  We ended up running errands and grabbing a late Indian Buffet lunch.  No one was really hungry for dinner, so the kids ended up having a bowl of cereal and a yogurt stick before bed.  I just had some cheese and crackers.
