Menu for the week of 10/9

I am going to try and keep these weekly menu posts as short and sweet as possible. Actually, I am lying they wont be very sweet because I don't like sweets and I can't bake. But, you get what I'm attempting to say here. I also want to add that we eat pretty simple most of the time and repeat family favorites. Some weeks I will make a lot from scratch and other weeks we will eat "boxed food" as I call it. Also, some weeks will be much lighter and healthier than others (my husband LOVES southern cooking... anything fried or smothered lol) Please don't judge or be rude if our meals don't work for you. This is just a starting point for you to get ideas and hopefully be able to create your own weekly menu without my help. I wont give recipes or many photos here as stated above, this is just a simple list or menu to help give you some ideas. We are a family of 4. Me, my husband, and our two boys who are 7 and 16 months. These meals will generally be kid friendly. I try not to have too many leftovers when I cook so you can alter the amount being made to work for you. We don't eat a lot of fish although I would love to change that if I could get the kids to eat it haha. So, here's to week one of sharing our weekly menu with you all!


Monday: Spaghetti w/meat sauce and a side salad

Tuesday: Smothered Chicken over white rice w/ green beans

Wednesday: Leftovers (The previous recipe makes enough for leftovers and reheats well so I try to take advantage of this to give myself a day during the week that I don't have to cook)

Thursday: Grilled hot dogs, baked parmesan fries, and pasta salad

Friday: Takeout (I don't always cook on Fridays. Our schedule is usually pretty busy that day so we often pick up dinner)

Saturday: Boneless wings w/fries and dipping sauces (Saturdays have been for "football food" lately so for the next few weeks it will often include things like wings, fries, and meatballs... blame my husband hehe) 

Sunday: Meatloaf w/a brown sugar and ketchup glaze on top, mashed potatoes and collard greens

Lastly, I often keep things like chicken nuggets and frozen pizzas in the freezer for days I last minute decide not to cook. Also pancake mix. perfect to fill everyone up and easy to make. Best part is the kids always think its such a treat to have breakfast for dinner.
