Nov. 14 Menu Plan

Last week was rather busy for both the hubby and I. Between late night work meetings, celebrating my sweet mom's birthday, and trying to squeeze in some early Christmas shopping, we managed to completely neglect our menu plan. We did have a plan, but it got tossed when we realized meals needed to be take out, leftovers, or something simple. 

Thankfully, I took last Thursday and Friday off from work to regroup and recharge and this week is looking much less crazy! 

Here's what we're eating this week...

Monday - {Meat Free} Egg Salad BLT Sandwiches, fruit

Tuesday - Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings (we didn't get to enjoy these last week, so here's hoping they actually make the menu plan this week!)

Wednesday - Beef Tacos, Chips & Salsa

Thursday - Chickpea Chicken Noodle Soup {new}

Friday - Homemade Pizza, Garden Salads

Saturday - Leftovers

  1. Hi Rachel, I know what you mean about getting off the Menu track. I did too! Busy live tend to do that! Please stop by StoneGable and join in ON THE MENU MONDAY! I'm going to try your chicken and dumplings.

  2. I want to try the wings with pizza! We use to have a pizza place that had great pizza and wings specials...sure do miss that place!

  3. I enjoy reading about your decorating/new kitchen and shopping. I am a little confused here though as in England... BLT means bacon/lettuce and tomato......and it's your meat free day?????? hehehehe what's in your BLT???

  4. @Tilly - your comment made me smile so big! In America, BLT is Bacon Lettuce Tomato too...I must have just thought bacon wasn't a meat today! :)

  5. Hi Rachel,
    Your menu plan for the week looks great. Your Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings looks so good! Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful week!
