Menu Plan Monday, December 3rd

It’s the start of a new month and it’s the start of a new week, time to get our meal plans ready. 

If you need a few dinner ideas see what’s cooking at our house below…

Menu plan with recipe links


This week we’ll be trying a new soup recipe. It sounds so good, I’ll have to let you know how it turns out. 

We’ll also be having tacos in bowls instead of the shell. It’s a nice change of pace for us if you haven’t given the taco bowl recipe a try, you should.

I’ve made the glazed pork chops a couple of times now and they are so good. They can be inexpensive too if you cut your own pork chops from a pork loin. It’s not hard to do at all.

When the cold weather sets in it’s time to eat soup, chili, and stews. They warm you up from the inside out. This week we are trying the new to us soup recipe and making skillet chili too. 

It’s a quick chili recipe for the busy day. 

Finally we’ll be having two chicken recipes, parmesan chicken and sweet chili chicken too. 

See our full meal plan below:

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


A quick and easy dinner, taco bowls. These are made with ground beef and are quick to make. Just a few simple ingredients are all that is needed. They are a favorite at our house.

Taco Bowls, Chips and Salsa

Glazed Pork Chops, Baked Potatoes, and Salad

Skillet Chili, Cornbread, and Salad

Chicken Parmesan, Noodles, French Bread, and Salad

Lentil Vegetable Soup and Bread

Sweet Chili Chicken with Roasted Vegetables

Out to Eat


Leftover most days

Tomato Soup and Sandwiches

Burritos, Chips and Salsa


I don’t think you can ever have too many breakfast recipes. This chocolate chip scone recipe is one of our favorites. These chocolate chip sones have no heavy cream, in fact they are dairy free scones. Another plus is you can make them in the skillet, so you don’t have to heat up the house on warmer days to bake them.

Toast, Eggs and Oatmeal

Chocolate Chip Scones, Eggs and Sausage

Pancakes, Eggs and Sausage

  1. This looks so delicious! My husband and I are dedicating 2019 to better kitchen experiences, and I’m learning as we prepare for this challenge (normally, I microwave frozen burritos and call it dinner, haha), meal planning and grocery lists that coincide with this meal is going to be essential to the sanity in our kitchen!
