Weekly Meal Plan – March 4 – 10



Seriously?  I cannot believe we are already in the third month of the year.  Last week was the first week that I haven’t meal planned all year.  Losing Tucker put me in a funk, which explains the lack of posts.  I published posts that were already in the works or that were easy to write, because my heart just wasn’t in blogging last week.  Our pantry and refrigerator were both bare too, so we threw together meals all week.  Thankfully, we fixed that Saturday morning when we spent right at $300 on groceries.  OUCH.  I hope they last a while!  For the first time, we focused on buying organic food, whole wheat and brown everything (from pasta and rice to bread), and tons of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Our refrigerator is absolutely packed and I don’t think we could fit anything else in it.  It feels like a step in the right direction.


-Cereal (using up what’s left- not buying more)
Freezer Friendly Baked Oatmeal  (delicious!)
-Waffles (from the freezer)


-Green Monster Smoothies
-Chicken fingers, macaroni & cheese
-Peanut Butter sandwiches, carrot sticks


Easy Peasy Hummus, crackers
Kale Chips


Three Cheese Lasagna  (WINNER!)
Mexican Chicken & Black Bean Filling (we LOVE  this!)
Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes  (this is another favorite!)

  • mmmmm. Sounds like a good week at your house.

    We switched to monthly plans because we kept missing weeks when we were doing weekly plans.
