Meal Plan Monday {Aug 22}

We did much better last week with sticking to our meal plan.  Except we got take out on Wednesday when I had a migraine and a take-n-bake pizza on Saturday after running 12 miles.  Both meals were relatively cheap so that’s good but we need to drastically reduce the amount of money we spend on eating out.  Now that I’ve been unemployed for almost 7 months we are starting to have to make some big changes to our finances and eating out should be an easy item to eliminate. 


Monday ~ Sloppy José's Supper

This is one of my favorite meals and I don’t know why its been so long since its been on the meal plan!

Tuesday ~ Black Bean Mexican Pizzas

These are carried over from last week.  Super easy and sooo good. 

Wednesday ~ Pineapple Jerk Chicken

This is also another one of my favorite meals that we haven’t had in a while.  I’m excited for leftovers this week!

Thursday ~ leftovers

Friday ~ leftovers

Saturday ~ Spaghetti with homemade marinara sauce

We are still getting tons of fresh tomatoes from our garden and I’m making homemade marinara sauce and/or salsa every week.  I love fresh garden tomatoes :)

Sunday ~ Turkey Burgers

We are hosting a little BBQ get-together on Sunday afternoon for some of my old co-workers.  I’m excited to everyone that I was so use to talking to everyday.  Its been far too long …


I want to share this link to these amazing Sweet Zucchini Pancakes.  I made them for breakfast yesterday and they are sooo good.  I may never want regular pancakes again!  If you’ve got an abundance of zucchini, like I do, these pancakes are a great way to use some of it up!


What’s on your menu this week?
