Week 5 Meal Plan

19 02 2012

Here is our week in meals for you!

Sunday: Italian wedding soup with homemade rolls!  Very yummy, but Mario was not a big fan of the veggie meatballs this time.

Italian Wedding Soup (vegan)

 

Monday (NO SCHOOL): Chicken Parmesan.    Yes no more Meatless Mondays because Lent begins on Wednesday.    We will be enjoying Meatless Fridays for the next few weeks!

Chicken Parmesan!!!

 
Tuesday: Burgers and fries (Same roll recipe as above!)
 
Wednesday:  It was corn dogs and mac & cheese, but now it will be eating out with friends for Ash Wednesday.  It happens.
 
Thursday: Pot Pies (frozen dinner night)
 
Friday: Was date night…now will be corn dogs and mac & cheese night
 
Saturday: Unstuffed peppers, but Mario is trying really hard to change this to something else…..He isn’t into it, but I love it!

This Week’s Meal Plan!

12 02 2012

Wow, I think that every time Mario snagged us another dinner invitation this weekend I rolled my eyes.  Not that I do not want to spend time with my friends, but I just keep seeing dollar signs rolling away in my brain.  Wedding-itis I think it is called.  But no problem.  We came to some agreements.  First meal plan for the week had to be simple and inexpensive.  Done.  Second, the total cost of our meals could not be greater than $20.  We will see how that goes.  That is excluding the tip (and my margarita on Wednesday! Hehehe!)  I also prepped ahead so much today, it will really make my week EASIER!!!

Here is our plan!

Yum on a bun! So good!

Sunday: Hamburgers, homemade buns, and french fries.

Monday: Veggie corn dogs and baked mac and cheese. (Mac and cheese already prepped!)

Tuesday: Taco Night (2nd meatless night this week!) with refried beans (already prepped too with all of the taco fixings!)

Wednesday: Eating out with friends at Aunt Chilada’s!

Thursday: Chicken Fettucini Alfredo (Chicken already cooked!) with salad and rolls

Friday: Eating out with Fr. Vince and friends!

Saturday: Eating over at Crystal’s house!

This is what my sink looks like now after prepping the week's meals all at once. I ran out of measuring cups about 2/3 of the way through!





Day 9 Burgers and Fries

25 01 2012
Take Out Tuesday! Burgers and Fries!

Mario loves a good burger, so I knew he’d be happy today with dinner.  We did not buy buns purposely because I thought I’d make my own.  Then I kept remembering that I was running low on yeast, but luckily there was enough.  The recipe I used is here.  It is actually for rolls, but I thought that if I supersized them they would be fine.  They came out so light, sweet, and delicious.  I wish I had made extra!!!

 
Mine had a Morningstar Grillers Prime patty while Mario’s was ground beef.  They also had cheese, romaine lettuce, and ketchup.  Mine also had spicy brown mustard.
 
With a side of waffle fries, this was dinner!! YUM!
