Tuesday: Spinach & Chicken Stromboli from Our Best Bites {We ALL Love this recipe, but I was unable to link it to you because it is from a cookbook}

Wednesday: Kid’s Choice!

Thursday: Pioneer Woman’s Pork Chops with Pineapple Fried Rice{We never ate this last week}

Happy Memorial Day Friends! 

Hope you are able to enjoy a relaxing day celebrating with friends and family.  We are off to a rainy start here is Missouri, but it promises to be steamy and hot tomorrow…With that in mind, I am not planning to hang out over a hot stove much this week.  I’m putting the crock pot to work and cooking outside as much as possible!  Enjoy!

Monday: Leftovers

Tuesday: Spaghetti and homemade meatballs with salad and garlic bread

Wednesday: Crockpot Chicken Caesar salad sandwiches {Using leftovers for Mr. Kriegerchick’s lunch} We LOVE this recipe! I could eat it every week!

Thursday: Pioneer Woman’s Pork Chops with Pineapple Fried Rice {One of my Favorite meals! I use canned pineapple and frozen peas…Delicious!}

Friday: Pizza or Dinner out

Saturday:  Grillin’ burgers…dinner with friends

Sunday: Creamy Chicken Enchiladas with chips and salsa {We never ate this last week and I already have it in the freezer}

Happy Summer everyone! 

Do your recipes change depending on the season?  What are your summer favorites?

Weekly Menu {May 5-11}

Hello Friends!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

This week’s menu is planned around our activities, the weather and re-stocking the freezer.  I found out through my meal planning the past couple weeks, that this is my best way to plan.  My eating habits are influenced by the weather.  If it’s hot outside, I do not want a hot meal and if it’s cold, I do not want a cold meal.  The weather has been unseasonably cool lately, so I’m planning warm meals for this week.  The other thing I am doing is trying to stock the freezer.  I like to have a few meals on hand for the nights that I do not have time or want to cook.  If I’m taking time to make one dish, it is just as easy to make two!

Sunday: Homemade Chicken and Noodles

Monday: Pizza Party with Nana & Papa…Momma has Bunco

Tuesday: Meatloaf with green beans and new potatoes (making double meatloaves for the freezer)

Wednesday: Dinner at Church

Thursday: Treat night- Drive-thru Dinner out for kiddos…Momma has a meeting at Panera

Friday: Lasagna with salad and bread (making double Lasagna for the freezer)

Saturday:  Taco night


 What’s on your Menu this week?

Weekly Menu {April 14-21}

Happy Day to all of you!

Yikes…I can hardly contain my excitement and anticipation…I am leaving for SNAP! in Salt Lake City, Utah!! in just 3 days…3 days!!  I will be soaking up all the creativity I possibly can…Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing oodles of pictures via Facebook and Instagram.  Hope you’re following along!

Since I will be Out of Town most of the week, The menu is short and simple.

**Clean out the fridge!**

We had steak tonight with leftovers, so probably steak salad one night.

Lots of veggies to eat up, so a stir fry or pasta with veggies the other night.

When I come home Sunday, I highly doubt I will want to spend time in the kitchen, so dinner will be something really easy, like Pizza…Momma does not want to cook her first afternoon home!

Hope you all have a fantastic week…I KNOW I will…Cannot wait to share it all with you!!  Have I mentioned how excited I am?!!

P.S. Meal planning last week worked out great…I didn’t stick to the plan exactly, but it was so nice to have ideas and all the food ready to go.  I’ll have a much better plan next week!  Promise! 🙂

Are you meal planning?  How’s it working for you?
