Weekly Menu #40

weeklymenuplan.jpg

I love menu planning and seeing other's dinner plans! I'm weird like that ;) As I've shared before, being in the kitchen is my happy place so I love finding meals that are new but I also never forget our favorites! These will link to the author's original recipe unless it's my own recipe/creation that I don't have a link for... yet.

If you need some inspiration for how to create menu plans you can read here where I go into detail about how I make a plan for our food week and here to read how I create our grocery list.

I don't make specific plans for breakfast and lunch but these are the basics I rotate between while throwing in a few other things for special days or weeks when I have the right ingredients.

Breakfasts: Pancakes, Coffee Cake, Egg Sandwiches, Sausage Balls, Eggs (various ways), English Muffins, Banana Bread, Biscuits and Gravy, and various types of muffins.

Lunches: Leftovers, PB&J, Meat and Cheese Wraps, Cheese Quesadillas, and Mac 'n' Cheese.

Dinners, however, are always planned for since they tend to take the most ingredients and prep time. Here's what's on our menu this week:

Sunday: Waffles of Insane GreatnessI'm going for super easy, no brainer meals this week because of the holiday. I know these will get eaten and there will probably be leftovers for an easy breakfast. 

Monday: Nacho Grilled Cheese SandwichesUm, holy cow! These sound absolutely incredible! Load up your bread with all sorts of nacho fixins and turn it into a grilled cheese? Genius, just genius. 

Tuesday: Lo MeinI wanted to stay away from anything relating to Thanksgiving food flavors so we are going with Asian flavors! This will be a great way to use up any produce we have that won't be used for Thanksgiving. 

Wednesday: Leftovers - We need to clean out the fridge before we make more leftovers tomorrow! 

Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving! I'm so thankful for each and every one of you that supports me and this blog! I pray that you enjoy your time today whether you are with family, friends, or strangers. 

Friday: Homemade Pizza and Movie Night - you can find my pizza crust recipe here.

Saturday: Thanksgiving Leftovers - I'm pretty sure that this is the plan for most people for several days following the holiday. Is it your favorite part?
