Menu Plan Monday


Menu plans always help me feel more in control of the week ahead, particularly when we have crazy schedules (as expected this week!)

  • Friday - just me & the boys for dinner, so we had a bit of this & that
  • Saturday - beef with barley soup (using leftover pot roast, from the freezer) & homemade bread
  • Sunday - chicken & dumplings
  • Monday - spaghetti bolognese (over soy noodles for M, pasta for the rest of us)
  • Tuesday - various leftover soup
  • Wednesday - tomato soup & grilled cheese sandwiches
  • Thursday - balsamic chicken (failed skillet recipe, leftovers from the freezer) over pasta
  • Friday - Remaining leftovers. If not, wings & samosas (freezer food)
What about you? What are you making this week?


  1. We had a sirloin tip roast, with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots for late lunch/early dinner yesterday to celebrate Halloween. At some point this week, I will use the leftover roast, and leftover mashed potatoes for a cottage pie. (I'll need to make a few more potatoes.) We never did eat the lobster ravioli, so that will be served at some time this week. Beyond that, I have no ideas. I have one of two boxes of smoked salmon in the pantry which I picked up over the summer. A kid said wasn't the best for bagels, (not Costco quality, apparently) so a salmon-cheddar chowder might appear tonight or tomorrow.

    1. Your menu plan sounds delicious! I've never made cottage pie, but now I'm tempted.

  2. I'm inviting myself for Friday night dinner, because I love samosas :)

    I made a chicken pie for tonight, tomorrow I'm trying chicken butternut casserole. We'll eat leftovers the next 2 nights, then Italian sausage, potato wedges (I'm trying in my new pot) and baked beans or salad.

  3. Your menu as is usual sounds wonderful. Do you make your own samosas?

    God bless.

  4. I made spaghetti and meatballs and there's a lot leftover. I've got a hectic week so hoping to cook 2-3 times, and leftovers other nights. We like cottage pie too- very homie.

  5. I am doing Sam’s good challenge. I opened a can of beans ( 59 cents a while back) a can of tomatoes paste ( also 59 cents, threw in garlic, dried onion, etc, and leftover crushed tomatoes from last week and a leftover tamale, and made a soup. Works for me for dinner at night for the week. I will eat a salad or greens on the side. Cindy in the South

  6. Congratulations, wonderful work, it's beautiful so much and good idea on site.
