It’s Monday again and time to get our meal plans done. When you meal plan you can save money by eating at home instead of eating out. Which can really save you money.

If you need some meal time inspiration I’m sharing what’s cooking at our house below with recipe links.

Menu plan with recipe links


This week we are having pita pocket bread sandwiches. If you’ve never made pita bread before check out this tutorial. It’s takes you through step by step the pita bread recipe I make at our house.

Our freezer is full of so much stuff, I need to stop buying and start eating from it more. So this week all of our meals will start with items from the freezer.

The spaghetti, enchiladas, and pita bread sandwiches will start with pre-cooked ground beef from the freezer.

The chicken dishes are already prepped and waiting in the freezer making them easy to make meals.

I love having the meat already prepped and ready to go. It really does make getting dinner done so much quicker and easier.

Our Meal for this Week,


This is the best and easiest homemade pasta sauce I’ve ever made. It’s so simple but tastes so delicious too. It only takes about 20 minutes to make too. Great for a quick and easy dinner any night of the week. If you can open a few cans and slice garlic you can make this delicious sauce in just minutes for a quick and easy dinner. Add in cooked ground beef or cooked sausage to beef it up.

  1. We’re sticking with pretty basic meals including spaghetti 🙂 for this week. I am trying out some new meals in my boys’ lunchboxes though. We’ll see what they think of that. Your menu sounds great!

  2. Sounds like my freezer. 😉 We are having jambalaya from the freezer tonight. I need to get serious about clearing space before all the wonderful summer produce is available. Need room for corn and peaches!
