52 Weeks of Meal Planning (Week 2)

This post may include affiliate links, you can read my Privacy Policy.

Last week was a success, I was able to cook dinner each night and not eat out. Hoping to accomplish that again this week with the weekly meal planning menu.

The point of meal planning is to not only save money but to eat good food at home. Restaurants and fast-food are great from time to time, but they cost a lot of money! Most of the food you can purchase at a restaurant, you can easily make in the comfort of your own home.

If you missed last week, you can find that here: Week 1 of Meal Planning Ideas 

Week 2 of menu planning ideas to help keep you cooking delicious dishes!

Week 2 of Meal Planning

MondayCreamy Crockpot Mac & Cheese and I am so excited to try this out. My all-time favorite mac & cheese is from Kraft. Yes, the stuff in a box! I’m super fancy.

Tuesday – Breakfast for dinner. My family loves breakfast burritos so I’ll be making chorizo, eggs, bacon, potatoes wrapped in a tortilla with some salsa.

WednesdayChicken Mozzarella Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes. I have not tried this dish before, but I’ve had it bookmarked for a few months and I’m finally going to give it a try.

Thursday – Salmon over rice with fresh vegetables. Fish is a sensitive subject in my house. My husband isn’t a huge fan of fish and my kids have mixed feelings on it. I absolutely love fish – when cooked correctly. So I try to sneak a fish dish in ever few weeks.

Friday – Nacho Bar Night. I’m not always in the mood to cook, so anytime I can do buffet style dinner I’m on board. Nacho night is great because everyone can load up their plate with the ingredients they like. Make sure to offer a nice selection of fresh veggies and herbs.

SaturdaySpicy Chipotle Shredded Chicken from Pinch of Yum. I have made this dish several times and it’s always a hit in my household. You can turn down the heat by using less chipotles. You can also turn the heat up by adding more.

Sunday – Grilled Cheese with Chicken Ceaser Salad.

Be sure to follow me on Pinterest to get a sneak peek of what I’ll be cooking. Also, if you have a recipe you think I should include on my weekly menu, leave it in the comments below!

The breakfast burritos sound amazing, as does the mac and cheese. You know I love mac & cheese. Can you tell I'm missing my carbs? LOL
