Weekly Meal Plan {Week 20}


Happy Monday!  Here’s a peek at what has been cooking in our kitchen recently!  You can read about how we meal plan if you are new and looking for some tips.

Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti

Saturday:  I made Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti from Damn Delicious.  I’ve made similar baked spaghetti dishes before and honestly, this one didn’t wow me.

Halloween Candy Apple Crisp

I also made Halloween Candy Apple Crisp from Melanie Makes, using up some of our Halloween candy stash.   This was actually almost too sweet for me.  Any treat that I make is kid approved, and this was no different! My daughter even helped me make this.

Sunday: We had leftover Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti since there was so much!

Fish in Coconut Curry

Monday: I made Fish in Coconut Curry from Cooking Light, April 2014.  This was flavorful and easy to make.

Roasted Asparagus with Farro

Tuesday: I made my own variation of the Cookie & Kate version of Roasted Cauliflower & Farro Salad with Feta and Avocado.  Since asparagus was on sale, I roasted and substituted that in place of the cauliflower.  I also served ours with a fried egg on top, because everything’s better with a fried egg!  The kids surprised me with how much they enjoyed this dish (though boy wasn’t a big fan of the farro!).

Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

Wednesday: I made Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers from Damn Delicious.  I’ve only made stuffed peppers a couple of times and this was the first time cooking them in the slow cooker.  This was easy and definitely repeat-worthy.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Thursday: I made Chicken Tikka Masala using Trader Joe’s Masala Sauce in a jar.  I just had to throw it in a pan with the chicken and let it cook.  Quick and easy!  I served this with rice and veggies.  This is a great convenience jarred food to have on hand.  The only thing missing was some naan, which my daughter was disappointed that I didn’t have.


Friday:  The Weekend Chef was home early and we went out to dinner at a local Thai restaurant.  I had Beef Yellow Curry, though Tofu and Veggie is my usual favorite.



  1. Ooh look at all these yummy things you made this week, I’m hungry just looking at this. I’ve been wanting to try the cream cheese spaghetti, but that’s a bummer that it wasn’t all that great. (I have some cream cheese I need to use so I’ll probably try it anyway though.) The farro salad sounds delicious!

    • Definitely try! Unfortunately, I don’t remember the other sources of this dish that I’ve tried and preferred to be able to share.
