Menu Plan Monday, New Recipe, Quick Dinner and Freezer Lunches

Happy Monday to you! I hope this week is starting out great for you and you have your meal plan ready.

If you need some meal time inspriation, I have our meal plan ready to go below. It’s full of easy to make dinners and more. Because I’m sure you have lots to do besides cook dinner.

Menu plan with recipe links

This week, I’m making glazed pork chops. The glazed pork chops recipe pictured below is a keeper. Now we have a new way to enjoy the pork chops I make from the pork tenderloin from Costco.

We will also be having chili potato bar again this week. Our whole family loves that meal and we just don’t get tired of it. Plus I have chili just waiting in the pantry to be eaten, so why not use it in one of our favorite meals.

If you want to make your own chili for the top of the potatoes this skillet chili is quick and easy to make. Give it a try.

I was a little more inspired when planning our lunch this week, but not by much. I found a package of hot dogs in the freezer, so they went onto our lunch menu along with grilled sandwiches.

Waffles are on our weekend menu too. My son often requests muffins or waffles. They are two of his favorite breakfasts and the rest of the family loves them too.

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

  1. Your menu looks good, Shelly! And the glazed pork chops look delicious, too. 🙂 I’m planning on making pancakes for dinner today. And I’m looking forward to going out to eat with my mom and siblings for my mom’s birthday tomorrow.

  2. The pork chops look good! We haven’t had pork chops in a while, because my store hasn’t had them on sale in a long time. It seems like only the expensive cuts of beef, like filet mignon, are on sale lately.

    Hope you have a great week!
