Family Favorite Meal Plan

It’s Monday again and time to plan our meals for this week.

Menu plan with recipe links

This week our meal plan is full of favorite meals our family loves to eat.

We’ll also be eating chicken from the freezer and using some ground beef I added to the freezer this past week.

I made meatballs for the freezer. Two meatloaves and I browned 6 pounds of ground beef for the freezer too. We should be set for ground beef for a while.

I also did a month’s worth of grocery shopping over the weekend.

I love getting all of my grocery shopping done for the month in one trip. But that cart was so heavy to push around. And then bagging the groceries and unpacking when I got home.

We went in the evening and I was up to 11 pm putting groceries away. Next time I’ll go out grocery shopping earlier.

But at least I will only need to pick up about 10 fresh items a week until next month. That is going to be nice.

Now onto what we are eating this week.

Here’s what’s on our Menu for this Week,


Easy and Delicious Pan Fried Pork Chops

Pan Fried Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans

  1. 15 pounds of ground beef…wow! I don’t think I would have enough room in my freezer to store all that, but I’d love to have all those meatballs and meatloaves on hand for quick dinners 🙂

    My husband picked most of our meals for this week…seems like everything was chili or ground beef based, like burgers and chili pie. Lots of manly meals around here this week! 😉

    Hope you have a great week!

    1. Yes, it is a lot but it didn’t take up much room once I made the meatloaves, meatballs, hamburger patties and cooked ground beef for the freezer. It is so nice to have it ready to go in the freezer. We have a deep freeze which makes it easier to store the extra when I find it on sale. I’ll be getting 40 pounds of chicken this month so it’s really going to be stuffed full. 🙂

      It sounds like your hubby likes chili and ground beef. I think most guys do. I hope you have a great week too.
