Menu Plan for the Week: 1/29 – 2/4

Homemade yogurt with chocolate syrup (And some cute kids and some clutter in the background that I need to take care of)

How last week’s menu went:

Last week went well. I ended up not making the chili, but instead made a Kielbasa, peppers and onions dish that was sort of in-between this recipe and this one. It was yummy!

I did a little more baking than usual last week. I made 2 loaves of French Bread, some Oatmeal Blueberry Applesauce Muffins, and some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. I also got back into making homemade yogurt.

I joined Jessica at Good (Cheap) Eats in a Pantry Challenge this last month, and it went really well. I actually notice the most difference in the refrigerator.  It’s actually looking pretty empty (for me). I think I need to keep this up on my own!

Skinny Tuna Noodle Casserole (made slightly less "skinny" by adding french fried onions)

Favorite meal from last week:

I wasn’t expecting this, but I’m picking the Skinny Tuna Noodle Casserole as the favorite! I did add french fried onions instead of bread crumbs on top, which I would do again. All 5 of us liked it!

This Week’s Menu Plan



  • Ham and Potato Casserole (using some leftover ham from the freezer – healthier version of a recipe I used to make)
  • broccoli and or salad




  • Quick Chickpea Curry (Well look at this, yet another new recipe this week. I don’t know what came over me!)
  • rice or I might try naan
  • salad or veggies


  • Homemade Pizza (I’ll use this crust recipe, with part whole wheat flour. I double the recipe and also knead the dough after mixing.) I’m thinking about a ham and pineapple pizza this week.
  • Raw veggies


  • Chocolate Chip Chili (Moved from last week. I think I’ll leave out the sausage. And yes. It’s a new recipe.)
  • Cornbread
  • Raw veggies or fruit

    Wow! Looks like a fun week!

  2. I’m so impressed by how often you try new recipes! I try something new only once every 3 months or so.

      I can’t help myself! I think it’s fun. This week is a little crazy with the new recipes, though. We’ll see how it goes!
