Meal Plan Monday – December 8 2014

I simply cannot believe it is already December 8th! This month is flying by, which means Christmas will be here before we know it! I can’t wait to take in all the excitement that is Christmas morning, it takes on such a new level of amazing when you have kids. This week we will be decorating our house, and I’m hosting my first ever Christmas cookie exchange party! Have you ever been to one? or hosted? Any tips? I have of course pinned loads of ideas! It’s going to be so much fun!

In addition to planning my dinners, and having my cleaning schedule posted on the fridge, I have planned out the rest of my week to prepare for the party, and do some food prep! Today I made some coconut almond granola and washed/cut up the fruit for the week. Tomorrow I’ll make more yogurt and maybe some muffins too. The more organized my days are, the more I am able to get done :)

Here is what we are eating this week:

Monday – pizza and salad

Tuesday – kolbasa stir fry with peppers and zucchini over rice

Wednesday – cheesy sausage skillet

Thursday – cheese burgers and salad

Friday – baked fish with roasted potatoes and veggies

Meal Plan Monday – Dec 1st 2014

I once again didn’t get the meal plan up yesterday, opps! Monday sure is a crazy day around here, and my Tuesday didn’t start that great either :( but things are looking up! I’ve got the Pitch Perfect soundtrack on, getting some stuff done around the house, and a little blogging too!

Here is what we are eating this week for dinner, I am also making banana muffins and yogurt today!

Monday – spaghetti

Tuesday – breakfast (bacon, eggs, fruit smoothies)

Wednesday – pasta for the kids, dinner out for my husband and I :)

Thursday – tacos

Friday – popcorn shrimp, fries and veggies

Meal Plan Monday – Nov 24 2014

Another busy week ahead! Can you believe December starts next week? And Advent starts this weekend! Crazy! And that means things are only going to get busier in our house, so next week I am starting a new cleaning schedule, which I will share on the blog later this week! I love lists, and an easy to follow printout on my fridge is exactly what I need to keep me on track. Just like how I plan my dinners, and keep it on the wall or the kitchen!

Here is what we are eating this week:

Monday – chicken Caesar salads (chicken, fries and veggies for the kids)
Tuesday – meatballs, fried rice and broccoli
Wednesday – cabbage roll casserole
Thursday – pierogies with bacon , red peppers and zucchini
Friday – baked fish, fries, and corn

I will also be making some banana muffins this week, and I might make more yogurt too. Yup, I finally got around to making my own yogurt in the yogurt maker I got last year…the year before… Watch for that recipe tomorrow!

Meal Plan….Tuesday November 18 2014!

This blogging thing just isn’t happening right now. The problem isn’t lack of ideas (I randomly think up awesome posts), it’s time…3 kids sure keep me busy, plus a house to clean, part time work to do, and feeding a baby every couple hours (3 months, and she still wants to eat every 2 hours most days!). And right now, any free time I have I have been crocheting, and oh boy is there a blog post begging to be written about all my crochet projects….if only I had time.

So there is a little tease, hopefully this week I can share with you all my frugal crochet projects. Some are Christmas gifts, some Christmas decor, and some are just fun little projects!

Until I can get some pictures of those projects, and write up a post about them, here is our meal plan for the week…a day late, opps!

Monday – pizza pasta (your fav pizza toppings in a tomato sauce, over your fav pasta! Super easy, kids love it, make it as healthy as you want with extra veggies!)

Tuesday – tacos

Wednesday – my famous spaghetti

Thursday – meatballs, rice and broccoli

Friday – fish and chips and salad


As always, I am linking up over at Org Junkie. Happy menu planning everyone! (Changing up my picture, since we got snow the other day, and its well below zero!)

Meal Plan Monday – November 10

These days, I feel like the only time I get to sit down is when I am feeding the baby. Is this normal for you stay at home moms? Do you constantly feeling like you are on the go?

I need to accept that life is busy these days, and that’s just the way it is. I have to be very efficient in everything I do, otherwise my to-dos don’t get crossed off my list! This week I am getting back to my cleaning schedule, and using my calendar to plan out my daily things, not just the kids activities and special things that pop up during the week. I have also started to work a tiny bit each month, from home thankfully, and am planning on making some Christmas gifts…honestly, the busier I am, the better organized and efficient I become! One thing that really helps me during the week, is my meal plan! I don’t even know how to grocery shop without my list and dinners planned out! And I know, come 5:30pm,  would be a frantic mess if I didnt know what was for dinner that night. One less thing for me to think about and stress over :)

Here is what we are eating this week:

Monday – one pot cabbage casserole (kids will try a little of this, but I am also making mac and cheese for them)

Tuesday – breakfast for dinner (eggs, hash browns, bacon and smoothies)

Wednesday – chicken nuggets, french fries and broccoli

Thursday – pizza

Friday – fish, roasted potatoes, and veggies

Saturday – hubby’s birthday, his choice!

As always I am linking up over at Org Junkie. Stop by and check out lots of great meal plans, as well as other organizing tips!
