Weekly Menu Plan, 2023 Week 1


Time to get organized for the week! I usually make out my weekly meal plans on Sunday and write everything on a white board in my kitchen so everyone can see what we are having. If your home is anything like mine, kids start asking “What’s for dinner?” just after they’ve barely finished breakfast! Years ago I participated in a link-up called “Menu Plan Monday” and I don’t think the blog hosts it anymore, but I do enjoy going back and looking through the weekly menus I posted on my blog. Sometimes it provides a bit of inspiration! 

  • Sunday: New Year’s Day Dinner – Turkey roulade with cranberry-almond stuffing, mashed potatoes, honey-citrus salad.
  • Monday: Crock Pot split pea soup, salad, bread machine focaccia
  • Tuesday: Sausage Parmesan, broccoli, salad
  • Wednesday: Turkey burgers, potato puffs, cole slaw
  • Thursday: Crock Pot Mexican chicken over brown rice
  • Friday: Take-out pizza & wings (?)
  • Saturday: Cheese steak in a bowl, baked fries, cole slaw

Do you meal plan? I don’t always stick to what I write down, but at least it gives me a blueprint for the week. Sometimes meals get bumped or we make something else depending on what everyone feels like, but I find it is very helpful having a rough draft — especially on nights when we have school activities or late meetings!

  1. I think I used to follow Menu Plan Monday years ago as well but now do my menu planning when I do the Happy Homemaker Mondays. I’m like you and don’t always stick to it but agree it helps when you can’t quite decide. Your menu this week sounds delicious!

  2. That brings back memories, I used to do the Menu Plan Monday. It was hosted by Laura at I’m an Organizing Junky, and she still did them until last year. She’s been blogging as long as we have, seems like forever doesn’t it Carol? hahahah

    Your menu looked really good. I know I’m late commenting but I’m trying to catch up on all the 365 posts so I’ll be up to date.
