Menu Plan 10/23

I think things are mostly getting back to "normal" around our house. I have one day of subbing lined up for this week...and we'll see how many 6:15 am phone calls I get!

Are you interested in menu planning? Read my two part series about why menu planning is so beneficial and how to get started. I promise it will help you live more intentionally!

You can also see my post with a round-up of gluten free recipes that are posted on my blog right now.

Sunday: {The Packer game was a 3:00 game this weekend...and you know what that means in Wisconsin! Dinner is compromised. :)} I made nachos/tacos and tried this homemade nacho cheese sauce. Perfect football game food!

Monday: Pizza Chicken (chicken with pizza sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni on top, baked in oven), roasted potatoes, steamed broccoli.

Tuesday: Homemade hamburger helper skillet meal, salad.

Wednesday: Leftovers? {We have so many right now!}

Thursday: Shepherd's Pie, carrots.

Friday: Hubby has Confirmation retreat/lock-in, so I'm on my own. Leftovers it is!

Saturday: Spanish rice with hamburger.

For breakfast, we each grab what we want: waffles, muffins, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, cold cereal, yogurt, etc.

For lunch, I usually eat leftovers or something simple, like grilled cheese or quesadillas. My husband eats a sandwich or leftovers - he takes his lunch to work most days.

Have you “liked” Our Frugal Happy life on Facebook yet? We have lots of fun over there, too!

  1. I love the idea of the pizza chicken. I've got to try that. Glad you could join us on the GF Menu Swap this week.

  2. @Heather @CeliacFamily The pizza chicken is so easy - and tastes great, too! Perfect for quick nights, for sure. :)


I enjoy hearing from you! Please let me know if there's something specific you're looking for!
