Meal Plan Monday - Fall is Finally Here

This week is all about easy to prepare, warm, comforting foods. However my goal is to make sure that it is healthy instead of starting to pre-pack on the holiday pounds. I attempted to start couponing this week. Well let me tell you, it was a failure. I managed to save $40 according to my receipt, however I spent twice as much as I have been spending per shopping trip, so I am thinking that maybe I need to just keep up what I am doing.

So here are the meals in no particular order, mostly. We have a busy weekend with 5 extras so those meals are specifically set aside for that day.

Chicken and Rice Casserole
Green Beans

Peppercorn crusted pork loin
Glazed Carrots

Whole Wheat Spaghetti
Marinara Sauce
Garlic Bread
Stuffed Quesadilla's

Chili Dogs
Sweet potato Fries

Grilled Cheese
Vegetable/Tomato Soup

What's on the menu at your house this week? What's your favorite fall meal?

  1. I have started doing the same in our house! Planning out the meals a week in advance is so much easier AND saves us money (since I wouldn't want to think up anything to make so we would eat out). On the menu this week we have tacos, soup & sandwiches, chicken enchiladas (with hubby's first attempt at homemade green sauce), pulled pork, steaks & salmon and spaghetti. Hubby & son usually eat the simple things I can't when I stay at my mom's.

    Thanks for the ideas!


I love to hear from you!
