Menu Plan 11/6: Creamy Chilaquiles, Crispy Pizza Wraps and more!

I sure a hoping to get back to work this week! State testing is nearly over, so that bodes well for substitute teachers. :)

We'll be trying a few new meals this week (again, thanks to Pinterest!): Italian Cream Cheese Casserole, Creamy Chilaquiles, Pizza Wraps and Oven Parmesan Fries.

*Depending on how the week is going, it's possible that I'll insert a "leftover buffet" night - particularly if my refrigerator begins bulging at the seams again!

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!

Sunday: Italian Cream Cheese Casserole (I'm actually going to use a Philly cooking creme, which I got for $0.49 at Target!). We might end up going out to's been one of those days... I'll make the casserole another night this week, most likely.

Monday: Carnitas (with pork), veggies.

Tuesday: Garlic Cheddar Chicken, roasted potatoes, veggies.

Wednesday: Pizza Sloppy Joes and Oven Parmesan Fries.

Thursday: Creamy Chilaquiles.

Friday: Crispy Pizza Wraps with homemade pizza sauce, veggies.

Saturday: Parmesan Garlic Chicken, fried potatoes, veggies.

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. Yum! I'm checking many of these recipes out.

  2. I'm with you on loving Pinterest for new recipe ideas. Oh, and crafty ideas, decorating ideas, and even wardrobe help. I found a Pizza Puff recipe and one for breakfast egg "muffins' that I sent to college with my daughter.

  3. Great menu, Emily! Thanks for joining in. I love Pinterest, too. It is one of my fun happy places to play around and get ideas. So fun!
