Menu Plan Monday

  • Homemade pizza with fruit
  • Seasoned Chicken with lime sauce, mashed potatoes and mixed veggies
  • Shepherd's Pie with baked sweet potatoes and broccoli
  • Chili (from the freezer!) with corn muffins OR Salmon wrapped in aluminum foil with potatoes, tomatoes, spices, etc. and paired with corn on the cob
I only need 4 recipes this week as we went to a barn party Sunday and my birthday is Thursday, which is also the night my daughter's soccer league has a dinner fundraiser at a local restaurant. We want to support the league and I want to eat out for my birthday so it's a win-win all around! That last meal is up in the air because a lot of it will depend on how I feel the night I go to cook it. The chili is from a large batch made about a month ago; I make it in the slow cooker and then freeze the extra. We normally eat 3-4 times off of one batch so I consider that a stretchy meal.


  1. Found your blog from I like the idea of chilli from the freezer. Quick and easy and still yummy! I did that when I had my 3rd baby...stocked up lotsa stuff to thaw and stick in the oven. :-)

  2. Welcome! Yes, every month or 2 I make big batches of chili and vegetable soup and I freeze the extras. It's so easy and for us, living 20+ miles from the closest fast food this is a great option when time is tight!
