Ready to plan your meals for the upcoming week!  We are here to give you a few ideas!

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!


  • Sunday:  Chili with homemade bread
  • Monday:   Spaghetti, meatballs, french bread (didn’t cook this last week)
  • Tuesday:  Ham and Scalloped potaotes, corn and rolls
  • Wednesday:  Leftovers
  • Thursday:  Cornbread Chicken Casserole
  • Friday:  Dinner Out
  • Saturday:  Grilled chicken, steamed broccoli, broiled red potatoes

Grandma’s Chili Recipe (tomato based chili – can add additional peppers, etc for more spice if you like)

2 cans tomato soup
2 lbs browned ground beef
1/2 jar tomato juice
Small can tomato sauce
1 – 2 cans drained kidney beans
Chili powder to taste

Add all items in the order given and simmer for 45 min – 1 hour on mid high heat (stirring frequently).  Once heated throughout, reduce heat and simmer on medium for another hour (or until ready to eat, whichever comes first)
