Menu Plan Monday, April 27th

You don’t have to do all the meal planning yourself. Have your family help. That’s what I did this week and my family came up with some great dinner ideas. 

Menu plan with recipe links

The kids helped me plan this weeks menu again. This week they picked to have chili baked potatoes. I love that because it’s a quick and easy meal. Plus I purchased a few cans on chili with coupons recently so it will be a frugal meal too. 

My son picked hamburgers with baked fries. Because that is one of his favorite meals, probably only second to Sloppy Joes. We still have hamburger patties in the freezer from a shopping trip to our local restaurant supply grocery store. 

And taco pocket sandwiches were also added by the kids. The taco pocket sandwiches are pocket bread filled with taco filling. They are really good. I’ve been making them for years. I really should share the recipe for them soon.

We’ll also be having breakfast for dinner this week it will be pancakes. 

And we’ll be eating from the freezer. We have ham to use up. As well as pork chops I cut from a pork loin to use in the recipe my great grandma used to make. 

Finally to use up those vegetables hanging out in the crisper drawer, we’ll have chicken stir fry this week too. 

It should be good eating around here this week.

    1. We had the chili baked potatoes last night for dinner. My son who is my picky eater at one and half potatoes. He is a good eater when it’s something he really likes. Glad to hear your kids really liked it too.
