Quick Family Favorites Meal Plan

Happy Monday, to you!  I’m ready for the new week how about you? With a new week comes the need for a new meal plan. This week’s meal plan has quick family favorites.

Menu plan with recipe links

For this week’s meal plan, we’ll be having one of our favorite meals I don’t make quite enough and that’s roast beef in the slow cooker.

I love that I can make a roast in the slow cooker and it turns out so delicious and tender. Then the next day I’ll either make beef noodles or roast beef sandwiches. It’s like cooking once and eating twice.

And with beef prices as high as they are right now, stretching a roast into two meals helps to soften the blow of those high prices.

Another family favorite is the chili cornbread. It’s an easy casserole meal that has a layer of chili covered with cornbread. It’s great served with a side green salad and a little fruit. It’s an inexpensive dish that is so yummy!

While I didn’t add a breakfast for dinner to our meal plan this week, we do have a few easy skillet dishes. One is cheeseburger skillet recipe and it’s on our menu plan this week.

It’s one dish my family loves and it can be made dairy free.

  1. It’s such a good time of year to make a roast beef in the slow cooker! I’m hoping for a good deal on a roast in the next couple of weeks…keeping my eyes peeled for one at the grocery store 🙂

    Hope you have a great week!
