Weekly Meal Plan: September 28th – October 4th

Weekly Meal Plan

Last week’s meal plan was a TOTAL success. There was nothing special about it but the meals worked out perfectly. I think a lot of it was me being realistic about what I could do each day. Our days are more routine at this point and so certain days I can put more effort into dinner than others. I am planning on another week just like that.

The hit meal of the week was this Pan Roasted Pork Loin with Leeks from Musings of a Housewife. The salty taste of those leeks makes it and with just a few ingredients it was the perfect weeknight meal!

One failure from last week was the snacks. I plan on re-trying this week!

Here’s our plan for the week:

Sunday: Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes

Monday: Skinny Chicken Alfredo and Broccoli 

Tuesday: Fish Sticks, Rice, and Corn

Wednesday: Flatbread Organic Pizza!

Thursday: Irish Beef Stew

This one takes a little more time and since Ben is working from home today, I’ll have just a bit more time to make it instead of waiting for him to commute. I am heading to a cooking class at Henrietta’s Table in Boston today so this will be a perfect evening meal for the family that I can make when I get home!

Friday: Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Kholrabi is coming strong these days. I’ll have to head to White Barn Farm to grab some along with large lettuce leaves! We LOVE this meal!

Saturday: Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

I am headed to NYC with friends this weekend so Ben is on his own for dinner with the kids while I eat out at Barbuto NYC! Italian for all of us. :)

This week I got some inspiration from this list of 26 EASY Weeknight Meals. And as always, follow my Meal Plan Ideas Pinterest Board which I am always updating with other ideas!
