Meal Plan Monday

I just wanted to thank you for reading and commenting on my "Just Start" post (just below). I appreciate your thoughts and look forward to writing about it and discussing with you more.

Like I said last Monday, we are in "use it up" mode around here. Last week I gave a list of stuff that we have on hand.

This week will incorporate everything we already have on hand and will look something like this...

Meals -

Monday - Noodles & Gravy (not the best name, but it's a classic we haven't had for awhile) w/ farmer's market veggies (carrots, green beans, and squash)
Tuesday - Leftovers - from Monday night and we have some from a potato quiche this past weekend
Wednesday - Roasted Chicken w/ potatoes and veggies
Thursday - Sandwiches on whole grain bread with veggies from the farmer's market and leftover chicken
Friday - Curry stir fry
Saturday - Maybe another potato quiche or hamburgers with a potato side dish - we'll see how many potatoes we have left!
Sunday - Leftovers (our last night here...)

Happy meal planning to you this week! Don't forget to check out the other Meal Plans over at Organizing Junkie!


  1. I definitely need to be in a "use it up mode". Happy Cooking!

  2. Quick and easy menu. You can't go wrong with leftovers. Have a great week.

  3. I'm enjoying your blog for the first time!
    Believe it or not, I haven't ever made the "Chicken & Veggies" in the crockpot that you mentioned back on Sept 24. :-) Sounds like a great idea!
    I'm trying to find cheaper meal plans that include more vegetables. I feel like we can eat cheaply, but it is not always healthy . . . so I'm on the hunt for inexpensive, healthy, not too complicated menus!! (Isn't everybody?!)
    Thanks for sharing your recipes!

  4. HI! I am stopping by from Org Junkie’s site! Your menu looks yummy... in fact, I have book marked it and will be back. :-)

  5. Raelene & Erica - I was just thinking about leftover and how easily I use them. I hate to think that there are more leftovers in the fridge than one meal (for all 3 of us). I like to stay on top of what gets left so that we don't waste food and have to throw stuff out.

    Becky - I, too, always want to make sure we're eating healthy and not just cheap. I just put together a long list of vegetarian and vegan meals that I want to try (even though we are neither).

    Kelli - Thanks for stopping by and bookmarking this site!
