Menu Plan Monday

It’s Monday again. Spring break is over and it’s time to get back to a more normal schedule which includes making our meal plan for this week.

Menu plan with recipe links

I hope you had a great Easter. Ours was quiet with just our family. I usually cook for the extended family but with Covid still going on, I made meals and delivered them to our extended family instead this year.

This week we’re using up a few of the freezer packages I have in the freezer.  I have quite a few chicken freezer meals waiting to be used. We’ll be using them in our meal plan this week.

I’ll be making a chicken stir fry dish to use up some of the veggies hanging out in the crisper drawer before they go bad.

We’ll also have chicken parmesan one night this week. As well as herb and garlic chicken.

It might seem like lots of chicken in one week, but I try to spread it out. My family usually doesn’t complain.

I’ve also included a few other family favorites in between to keep everyone happy.

Here’s what’s cooking at our house this week…


Chicken Stir Fry and Rice

Grilled Chicken Tenders on Salad with Homemade Croutons and Grilled French Bread

Easy to make meatballs with the great flavor of hoisin sauce, Frugal Family Home

Hoisin Meatballs, Rice, and Steamed Broccoli

Chicken Parmesan (from freezer) over Noodles, Salad and Garlic Bread

Hamburgers and Baked Fries

A great recipe for glazed pork chops

Glazed Pork Chops, Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes, and Salad

Herb and Garlic Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, and Corn on Cob


Leftover most days

Burritos, Chips and Salsa, and Salad

Hot Dogs and Chips


This whole wheat pancake recipe is easy to make and healthy too. It doesn’t contain eggs or oil. You can make it dairy free by using almond milk or another non dairy milk. It’s a great weekend breakfast but fast enough to be made on a weekday too. Even though these pancakes are made with whole wheat, they are light and fluffy. Come see what the secret is to making them fluffy instead of heavy and dense.

Toast, Eggs, and Oatmeal

Pancakes, Sausage, and Eggs

Waffles, Eggs, and Sausage

  1. Your menu looks tasty this week. I’ve got meatballs on menu this week, too (I wonder if we are all craving beef after feasting on ham?). I hopped over from Organizing Junkie. Have a great day!

  2. I’ve got to put your herb and garlic chicken back on my menu again soon…we all loved it the last time I made it 🙂

    My husband complained a few months ago that we were having chicken too often, so I purposefully tried to find more recipes for beef or pork. I realized the other day that we have a lot of beef, and a little chicken, but he hasn’t said a word about it 😉
