Menu Plan Saturday: 11/12 – 11/18

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Are you ready for another Menu Plan Saturday?  Before you look at what I’ve planned for my family for this week, be sure to download/print your forms: Weekly Menu Planner and Weekly Shopping List.  Each week I have one special recipe that is provided to me by The Moms Resource called Penny Pinchin’ Picks!

If the recipe is available on line, I have directly linked it for you. If it’s my own recipe, I’ve included the details as well.  Keep in mind that the meals I select are based upon a combination of what I might find on sale combined with items from our pantry/freezer.

Keep in mind that I keep my life simple. I am a busy mom of 3 kids and to be honest, cooking is not something I love to do. I cook because I have to. So, these meals are planned around the simplicity that I look for when it comes to trying to figure out what to make for dinner.


Sunday:  Homemade Pizza
Monday:  Parmesean Chicken & Broccoli, dinner rolls
Tuesday:  Roast, potatoes, carrots
Wednesday:  Leftovers
Thursday:  Spaghetti, meatballs, salad, french bread
Friday:  Dine Out
Saturday:  Grilled chicken, corn, rice and rolls

    I have started doing the menu planning thing, and it worked so well this past week. Thank you for your help with dinner planning. I got out my cookbooks, and found some websites to get recipies out of. It makes shopping sooooo much easier, and you dont overspend or buy unneeded things.

      You bet! I figure my menu may not work for everyone, but if it helps someone think of one or two things or inspires them get into the groove then I am doing my job! LOL!!

    Love these menu plans! It helps remind me to plan out our meals each week. If I don’t, I find myself stopping at the store almost everyday for something needed to complete a meal. If I would just plan ahead like this, it would be so much easier!

      Thanks! I found when I planned meals, I spent less money!! I hope that I can at least inspire people to do plans and/or give people a few ideas on what to make for dinner.
