Meal Plan for week of October 24th, 2011

mealplanmonday_v2

Well last week I managed to make 3 dinners from the 5 I had planned (accounting for 2 already planned for eating out events). One of those missed nights turned into a leftovers and blue box mac n cheese night since I had forgotten to pull chicken out early enough in the day to get it thawed and prepped before we had to be at scouts. The other ended up a drive thru night after church (we go to our church’s 5pm Saturday service so we can leave the more popular Sunday mornings open for all the new comers) and a full day of scouting activities and house projects that left me too zapped. We all LOVED those pumpkin stuffed shells from last week– totally give them a try!

So on a positive note I already had 2 meals for this weeks plan (the 2 that fell off last week) which made it nice and easy.

It seems chicken is on sale everywhere this week so I will stock up, but try to use it sparingly this week since we will have a stockpile to dip into in the coming weeks and I don’t want to tire of it.

Here is what we will eat

Monday-Chicken Bombay

Meal Plan for week of October 24th, 2011 — 5 Comments

  1. Going to make my plan today, so I’m not super sure yet. I know quiche is on the list because I have tons of eggs. And your Thursday dinner sounds great too, so that’ll probably make the cut too!

  2. Guess we are the only cool people meal planning this week Jessie :)

    Monday- leftovers ( just me and the kids)
    Tuesday-Love this quiche! Splitting the recipe into 2 regular pi plates to freeze. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/spinach-quiche/detail.aspx
    Wednesday- Roast chicken,with roasted veggies, mashed potatoes and gravy
    http://www.familycircle.com/recipe/chicken/savory-roast-chicken-gravy/
    ( making 2 chickens for freezer meals)
    Thursday- Chicken fried rice similar to this, bu with leftover chicken and more veggies. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/robert-irvine/chicken-fried-rice-recipe/index.html
    Friday- pizza night! Gilbert Pizza
    Saturday- Your thursday night recipe :)
    Sunday- leftovers

    Somewhere in there I am also going to take the 2nd chicken and make 2 pot pies to freeze and chicken stock.

    • sounds delish Destiny! I am gonna scope out some quiche recipes… that one looks good but I am allergic to mushrooms…do you make your own pie crust or buy pre made ones??

  3. I don’t like mushrooms so I leave them out :). I add bacon and use mediterranean herb feta and way less butter, like half the amount. Too much effort to make my own crust, do I buy them at trader joes. I also use regular dishes instead of deep dish, so this recipe makes 2!

    Sorry….that was long winded :). It is delicious and everyone cleans their plate!
