Menu Plan Saturday: 11/5 – 11/11

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:  Grilled Porkchops, red potatoes, peas, rolls
Monday:   Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore
Tuesday:   Leftovers
Wednesday:   Chicken Kabobs
Thursday:    Maple Oven Pancake Bake
Friday:  Dine Out
Saturday:  Chicken fried steak, pototaes, green beens, rolls

Maple Oven Pancake Bake

1 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 Tbs sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
12 slices of bacon (crumbled)

Grease a 9×13 pan and preheat oven to 350.  Mix Bisquick, sugar, eggs, milk, syrup and 1/2 of the cheese and pour into the pan.  Bake for 30 minutes.  While that is bacon, fry up the bacon so it is crispy and then crumble it (I place it into a Ziploc bag and then do it so that my fingers don’t get too greasy).  When the timer goes off, remove the pan and sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese and bacon and bake until the cheese is melted. Can serve with more syrup if desired.
