Meal Plan Monday: Last Week of September

meal planningHappy Monday!  Did you have a wonderful weekend? It was so beautiful out and perfect fall days. I enjoyed a HUGE and wonderful nap yesterday in front of the non-stop football games, and it was lovely! A nap! Nothing better for a lazy day- or atleast a lazy, afternoon!

Now it is back to the week ahead, and according to the month long, plan for the week , this is what I am making for dinners this week:

Breakfast
Crockpot
Chicken
Burgers
Pizza

What I am ACTUALLY making based on my grocery shop and what I already have is:

  • Monday–  Soup (from the freezer) and Pick your own Panini
  • Tuesday–   Yogurt Cornmeal Pancakes (From p.250 in Good Cheap Eats Cookbook), turkey bacon
  • Wednesday–  Crockpot Chicken Masala over Rice, vegetables
  • Thursday–  Burgers & Hotdogs, fries, salad
  • Friday–  Homemade Pizza
  • Saturday– Away-
  • Sunday-Away-

This is the end of our September month-long plan for “keeping it simple” and I have to say- It really is simpler to plan a month ahead in a basic way and then piece in what we need- but honestly, I went to the store for little fill-in trips more than I normally like to, so maybe I will change up the weeklies to get more specific.

Are you meal planning? Still having success with it? I have a new board on Pinterest where I am keeping all my past plans, and also have other boards relating to family dinners and picking eaters. Check them out:
