meal plan monday, 1.9-1.15

I kind of threw this week’s menu together at the last minute, but it uses up things I already have in the pantry and freezer, with just a few exceptions. We’re supposed to get another snow storm this week, so I’m already planning on another snow day Wednesday. I love, love, love the black bean soup I’ll be making and I plan on sharing the recipe with you on Thursday. It’s so easy and so good! The boys don’t like it much (hence the cheese quesadillas), but Drew and I do and Laura just devours it. As for Saturday’s beef stew? Well, I’m hoping that during the week I can find a great recipe. For some reason, my beef stews never come out well. If you have a recipe you love, please share it with me!

Here’s what I’m cooking up this week:

  • Sunday: Indian take-out (vegetarian platter & samosas)
  • Monday: Chili (slow cooker), salad
  • Tuesday: Roast chicken, potatoes au gratin, mixed vegetables
  • Wednesday: Black bean soup, cheese quesadillas with fresh pico de gallo and guacamole
  • Thursday: Baked cheese ravioli, salad
  • Friday: Chicken Parmesan grinders, cole slaw, chips
  • Saturday: Beef stew, biscuits

  1. Sounds like a delicious week 🙂

  2. I don’t like beef stew very much, and can’t think of any recipes I would pass on! Interested in your black bean soup recipe, though… that’s something I rarely make.
