OK, I'm giving it a shot. I always get good recipe ideas from ya'll!

Tonight we are having crockpot buffalo chicken dip and salad. Pizza for the kids.
Tomorrow DH cooks b/c I work 12 hours.

No particular order for next week:
Chicken pot pie
The Duggars tater tot casserole with green beans
Creamy baked spaghetti someone posted on here with salad and garlic bread
Pizza and salad (usually our Friday night go-to)
Chicken and Rice with a salad
Tacos
Misc meal made by DH on my work night

Shoo! Feels good to have a plan and all the groceries to go with it!

My sister has a whole wheat pizza dough recipe that she got from a 40 year old bread book at my parents. I finally got it from her and made it tonight. WOW. A giant thumbs up from everyone in the family!!!! It will be something we make a lot. It's a make ahead or weekend recipe because you do have to let the dough rise for 45 minutes, and we had to chop veggies and cook the chicken and sausage for the pizza. It was a huge hit, and I got to use my new Kitchenaid stand mixer

ETA, Tomorrow is family movie night. We'll be having baked potato soup, salad and crescent rolls.
Tomorrow morning I will edit and put in my menus for the week.

Can you share your recipe for the whole wheat pizza dough? Thanks

Yesterday I was fighting a cold and ended up taking a nap in the late afternoon, so we had leftovers last night. Tonight we are having the chicken stir fry

Healthy diets and I don't like each other. I love the stuff I grew up on. Not that my mom fed us junk or anything, but it was our era, Tang and Koolaid were the drinks of choice, Chef Boyardee pizza, boxed macaroni and cheese, and Doritos. So switching to a healthy whole grain, lots of veggies and fruits and less meats and sugar, well... it is a battle, as I want the things I am used to eating and so does hubby. So this week is still using up things we have on hand and getting that pantry emptied out, meaning it won't be the healthiest of choices.

So today, Sun - chow mein noodle casserole, garlic stir fried green beans, egg rolls
Mon - chicken biscuit bake or chicken pot pie, fresh fruit salad
Tues - Texas corn chowder, texas toast
Weds - spaghetti and marinara meat sauce, garlic toast, salad
Thur - build your own crispy beef tacos, beef burritos
Fri - cajun baked chicken, red beans and rice, green beans
Sat - grilled jalapeno and cheddar burgers, salad

~Happy Cooking!~

Well DH decided he is going to lose weight....so he went out yesterday and spent $50.00 on fruits and veggies for the week. I'm glad he's looking at healthy eating but there is no way he will use all that before it rots so towards the middle of the week I will probably blanch some of the spinach and put it in the freezer and I am incorporating more fruits and veggies into everyone's diet. The kids are actually better than DH they will eat a wider assortment of fruits than him anyway.

I usually cook pretty healthy with the occasional junky meal from time to time so we'll see how he does.

We eat big lunch on Sunday, oven baked chicken, salad (of course) baked butternut squash and probably applesauce. I am putting a corn beef in the oven to slice up for the kids lunch this week.

Dinner will probably be wedding soup with lots of veggies and squash rolls I make with lefover squash. Mmmmmm.

Tomorrow night will be marinara sauce with beef braciole, salad and a pasta of some sort. Later in the week I will use the leftover sauce and throw in some frozen shredded zuke and make baked ziti.

I googled & used a Panera Bread broccoli cheese soup recipe, it was not my favorite, though. I used my immersion blender & I think i pureed it too long, we didn't love the consistency. The soup didn't have a lot of flavor either, so if anyone has a great broccoli cheese soup recipe, please share!

Tonight is Quesadillas & a veggie of some sort.

I did not have a good week last week. I got take out twice. I usually get take out about once per month. So for this week I still have stuff from the freezer that I planned for last week. At least this will be a low grocery week.

In no order...

grilled steak

crock pot stew

pizza

breakfast for dinner

lasagna

Then I am out of town for the weekend so no cooking!

Corn chowder: Note this makes 2 servings so scale accordingly: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/texas-c...er/detail.aspx

Broccoli cheese soup:this makes a huge amount, so scale down if you don't need this much: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/broccol...up/detail.aspx

So, I ended up staying home today because I wasn't feeling well. As such I made the Patty Melts and fries. It was really good! I was surprised as to how much I enjoyed them.

So, next week will change a little bit...

Monday: Skinny Baked Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti, and Cucumber and Onion Salad


Wednesday: Blackened Fish Sandwiches with tzatziki and some sort of vegetable (whatever looks good in the freezer section)

Friday: Something from the freezer section or leftovers.

Saturday: Healthy, Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup and Crackers

First time I've seen braciole here! MIL made it last night using beef and another one using pork. It was so good. I've never made it before, do you have a recipe please (MIL doesn't).

I love how you are going to put zukes in your baked ziti!

Ok.. time to get down to business and plan this weeks menus. We always manage to resist the dreaded take out trap when I make a Sunday night menu and have a plan. So here goes.

Monday- Burgers, (Veggie and Meat), Baked Fries, Salad

Tuesday- breakfast for dinner.

Wednesday- Edit, going to sisters for dinner. She's making risotto and pan roasted vegetables.

Thursday- Wraps (refried beans, ground beef, cheese and various veggies in whole wheat wraps)

Friday- ds's favorite. Shepards pie

Saturday- Potato Soup and Salad, crescent rolls or biscuits.

Sunday- Homemade Pizza.

Other than milk and bread and a few veggies, I shouldn't have to shop until next Sunday. Still trying to put a dent in the freezer items.
