It’s the start of a new week and time to make our meal plans. This week we are having one of our family’s favorites. See the full meal plan below…

This week we are having our favorite meal, pizza. My family just loves pizza and it’s really inexpensive to make at home.

We will also be having a ham dinner again this week to try to use up the ham that’s been hanging out in the freezer since Christmas. Got to use it up. 

We’ll be enjoying a couple of chicken dinners this week too. Chicken is always a good choice for a frugal meal when you can find it on sale. We’ll be having barbecued chicken from the freezer.

And an easy sheet pan dinner of sweet chili chicken. I love that I only have to prep the vegetable and chicken, put it in the oven and then let it bake. It gives me time to do other things while it cooks. 

My son was asking about having egg noodles. I’ll be making beef and noodles this week for lunch since we love it so much and it’s easy to make too.

For breakfasts on the weekend, I’ll bake a batch of baked maple bars. If you haven’t ever made them at home they are so good. You’ll have to give them a try.

  1. Sounds like a yummy week at your house! I actually left 2 of our standby meals off the plan this week: tacos and pizza (although it is a back up for Friday). We’re having ham this week as well.

  2. Your menu sound delicious, Shelly! My kids love pizza, too. And you know, I’ve been avoiding the task of making homemade pizza for a VERY long time. But I recently decided to give it a go again and since then I’ve made it several times. 🙂

    I kept thinking about the dough recipe that I use and how it was going to take forever to prepare and rise. But actually, it didn’t take as long as I thought it would.

    I hope you and your family have a great week!

  3. I wish I could come over for dinner this week…everything sounds so good! 🙂

    I keep telling myself that I have to make your maple bars, but I haven’t done it yet. I think I’m just going to cross off my plan for Friday night’s usual Breakfast for Dinner here and write in “Baked Maple Bars” so that I actually do it this time. I love maple bars, but haven’t had one in years. I’ll let you know how they turn out 🙂
