Meal Plan

Ah the lovely and boring task of writing the 2 week menu plan. I swear by it and tell anyone who complains that they NEED to do it if they want to save money and sanity. I hate that time of day when you’re like  ‘Oh great (not), I need to make food. Let me pull myself away from the internet to see what I have in my kitchen that’s not spoiled or past expiration date.”

I go shopping every 2 weeks and that day was today. So, lucky reader, you get to see what we will be eating for the next 2 weeks. Not because I think it’s incredibly interesting and you HAVE to know, but because if I don’t make this list and post it, I’ll forget what I wanted to make, totally screw up the menus and thus will have nothing to eat by the beginning of my second week.

And I will complain. That I need noodles from The Olive Garden- it’s never ending pasta season right now. Or the Cheesy Biscuits from Red Lobster. I’ve once eaten 12, just for a lunch. Don’t judge me- you can walk in, order them only and it costs $4. Yeah. That’s why I did it. Oh and they crumble in my mouth and make me happy.


Thursday: Homemade Pizza-BBQ style, Rosemary Bread Sticks

Friday: Dinner @ Friends house (Bless them, we’re getting out! lol)

Saturday: Left over night-Yay for me!

Sunday: Potato Bar w/ Salad

Monday: Chicken Cordon Bleu w/ Zucchini, Rice

Tuesday: Breakfast night 🙂

(beans, corn, shredded chicken, tomatoes, lettuce lightly mixed with favorite dressing-mine is Caesar or Ranch for this. Pile on crisp Tostada. Serve with Mojitos (one of Trav’s favorites), close eyes and imagine you’re in Mexico)

Wednesday: Cheesy Chili with Cornbread

Thursday: Fancy Shmancy Tuna Melts


I make my husbands lunch. I don’t want to get into it- or at least in this post. Let’s just say that it means a lot to him and so I do it. So every two weeks or so I make treats/sides to put in his lunches and bribe Emma to go potty in the toilet. (If anyone has good ideas on the last one I’m all ears) So below is a list of the treats I’ll make in the next two weeks.

(*Have I mentioned I like to be in the kitchen?!)

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Apple Cobbler

Plum Muffins

Bannana Splits

Death by Chocolate Brownies w/ Toffee chips on top-(gag me, but the fam. likes them- hey, it’s their calories choices right? lol )

Peach Tarts

Banana Bread

Homemade Cranberry Granola

Chocolate covered Pretzels

Fondue w/ Bananas (an ultimate favorite of mine)


I should get going. Since the beginning of this post Emma has woken up and she’s stuffing (in a very ladylike way) Chocolate chips, Cheez-its and Peppermint tea. Should probably do something about that. Like go for a walk…just after we go to Safeway. Darn you diapers!!!

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
