Menu Plan Monday, November 18th

Menu plan with recipe links

I love to stock my freezer when I find meat on sale. And recently I found a good deal on chicken at Safeway.And a week later they had ground beef on sale too.

So I put together a few freezer meals for chicken. Made meatloaf, meatballs, and cooked ground beef for the freezer. So we are pretty well stocked up.

All I will need for meat is maybe to purchase a pork loin from Costco, a couple of beef roasts if I can find them on sale, and our Holiday dinner meat for the rest of this year. Which I know is only less than two months away but still fun to say.

This week we are having easy to make meals. With the holidays right around the corner, I’m saving my energy for cooking the big Thanksgiving Day dinner.

And after Thanksgiving I’ll start baking for Christmas, so dinners will need to be a little simpler for now.

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


When the weather gets warm, I love to make summer recipes that don’t heat up the kitchen. If you want to keep your kitchen cool and still have pizza pockets, try this skillet pizza pockets recipe. It’s easy to make and they turn out nice melty in the middle and a little crisp on the outside, just a diy perfect pizza pocket.

This easy breakfast recipe for Caramel Sticky Buns is the best. I made it for my family and it became a fast favorite of ours. I love that they don't cost much to make and I can serve it to our guests for a quick and easy breakfast.

  1. Mmmm..your chicken pot pie soup looks so delicious! I’m going to be making some turkey corn chili this week, since it’s turned a little colder here…soup just sounds good right now.

    Good job of stocking your freezer…it must make cooking for the holidays much easier to have a big stockpile of ingredients. Do you have a chest freezer or do you store all of this in your regular kitchen freezer?
