Weekly Menu – Week of January 12, 2015 (with recipe links)

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks! We were on vacation in Disneyland for six days (yay!!), and we call came home sick (boo!). In the week that we’ve been home, we’ve taken down all of our Christmas decorations, celebrated a birthday, and tried to get ourselves healthy and well. Meals have been a bit hit or miss, but this week I have the dinner menu, at least, set. It feels good!

This week will be full. Steve will be helping to build new stage sets at church, and working a day or two. Aaron is back at work full time, but heading to the recruiters for PT several mornings (morning PT is tough on a late swing shift worker), and William will be back at his desk for homeschool. I’ve got a pretty full week, too. Knowing what’s for dinner every night is a blessing!




Monday – Southwest Quiche, Almond Poppy Seed Bread (toasted).

Tuesday – Cheeseburger Soup, Easy Soft Breadsticks

Wednesday – Quick Chicken and Noodle Stew, Green Salad (I’ll double the recipe so we can enjoy it for lunch the next day.)

Thursday – Spaghetti, Green Salad, Garlic Bread

Friday – Simply Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas, Green Salad

Saturday – Tamara’s Focaccia, Green Salad

Sunday – Chicken Pot Pie Soup

The theme this week, for the most part, is quick and easy. It’s going to be a very full week. Knowing, in advance, what we’re having for dinner, means that I won’t have to worry on any given day about what we’ll have for dinner, and I know we won’t blow any cash by eating out at the last minute.

Is menu planning a new idea for you? Need help getting started? Looking for some fresh ideas? My menu planning series can help!

I’m participating in this week’s Menu Plan Monday! Hop on over there to see what others have on their menus this week.

  • Oh no! coming home sick isn’t any fun but I’m glad Disney was. Looks like a great menu! think I’m gonna go take a look-see! BTW, that little one is A-dorable!

  • It has been so cold here that the schools were closed last week. Then we had frozen rain most of yesterday with snow on top of that! So meals have been along the lines of soup and a chili Saturday night (reruns of it last night).

    I may not appreciate subzero weather but I do like cooking in this cold weather! Must try your the Focaccia recipe!
