Meal Planning Monday

My household is facing a bit of an upheaval in the near future – more on that later – and with an even-greater time-crunch on the horizon, I finally sat down today and did some major meal planning.  5 weeks worth, in fact.  Not gonna lie, I did quite a bit of repeating (especially this week, where I have 2 slow cooker roasts planned), but it will make grocery shopping easier, so I went with it.  Geez, we’re eating a lot of beef this week!  Pretty sure we won’t be consuming quite so much red meat in the near future.  The cold and dark of winter are getting to me, though, so there’s a lot of comfort food coming up.

Without further ado, I bring you this week’s plan.

Monday

Tuesday

  • Leftover pulled pork sandwiches
  • Spinach salad with feta, Craisins, and raspberry vinaigrette

Wednesday

  • Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast (I like to make it with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper in place of the onion soup mix)
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Cooked carrots

Thursday

  • Shepherd’s pie (cube the leftover beef, put in a casserole, top with the gravy, a layer of frozen peas, the leftover carrots, a few handfuls of shredded cheese, and the mashed potatoes)

Friday

  • Beef soft tacos/salad

Saturday

  • Slow Cooker Lasagna II (a recipe I haven’t tried before)
  • Spinach salad with feta, Craisins, and raspberry vinaigrette

Sunday

  • Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Cooked carrots

    Don’t worry about being a recipe repeater – we’re all shameless when it comes to that (Stuffed Mushrooms make a weekly appearance at our place). Keep on keeping on, lady!

    p.s. Totally hit the beef stew and porter for dinner tonight. January has completely addled my brain.
