Meal Plan Week of April 8th

Menu plansHaving a hard time coming up with ideas for meals this week. We have a busy week ahead so needless to say we should have planned better.

Yesterday we went out and bought a new dishwasher that will be delivered tonight and picked up a new microwave too.  Both of our current ones are about to bite the dust so it was time.  The next big kitchen purchase has to be a fridge. Lots more saving to do after our summer vacation!

Here’s the tentative plan so far:

Monday- Tuna and Soup

Tuesday- Shrimp pasta w/garlic biscuit bread

Wednesday- Waffles

Thursday- Fish Tacos

Friday- Homemade veggie burgers/sweet potato fries

Nothing too exciting! BUT the Anne Burrell meal I mentioned last week, the Frittata w/Fingerling Potatoes was awesome.  Kev made the enchiladas that I planned to make and they turned out AWESOME. Two really awesome meals last week. Never made it to the quinoa burgers but going to pick out a different veggie burger to try this week.

We went out with friends to Seasons 52 this past Saturday for my belated birthday celebration.  It.was.awesome. The food and service was nothing I expected, much greater.  I’ll be blogging about the experience on our family travel blog.  Be on the lookout!

Hubby is craving some homemade chocolate chip cookies so I might bake up a batch of those as well this week.

What’s on your menu this week?

Menu Planning Central



  1. Waffles sound great for dinner. Do you top them with anything to make them a savory dinner meal? or just good ole’ brinner (breakfast for dinner)? :)

    • Usually just breakfast for dinner but I love waffles topped with peanut butter, Greek yogurt and bananas (sometimes strawberries).

  2. i’ve been having the biggest craving for waffles lately!

    • Us too! We tried using the waffle maker with Flapjack mix but Kev did not enjoy that. I thought they were OK but we are just going to go with real waffle mix since we don’t have it that often.

  3. Believe it or not, I’ve never had a fish taco. What is the recommended type of fish?

    • Oh boy well…I had tuna for lunch so we had a quick veggie dog (me)/chicken sausage (him) with sweet potato fries and veg baked beans. I don’t see the rest of the week matching up too well but we’ll see. Trying to keep ourselves from ordering in Chinese lol

  5. I really like how you keep meals simple. I’m all for that. :) I’m glad to hear that you had some fabulous meals last week, too. Good food is great to enjoy, especially with family and friends.

    • Oh yea if they weren’t simple, I don’t think I could cook. It’s always great when a meal turns out so tasty. I’m shocked Kev has liked most of the stuff I have made. Thanks to Pinterest and The Food Network!

  6. Love waffles. Like having breakfast for dinner too.Thanks for the meal ideas for the week.
