Meal Plan at the Westly House

**this is the blog entry that BROKE the BLOG!**

I've learned something about myself: when it's COLD I don't want to be out & I definitely do NOT want to go to the store.

So, I'm making my grocery trip count & getting what I need for a week worth of meals.

I'm finding that it's a huge pain to plan out several days of meals! Y'all better be happy!!!

As of right now I'm still working out all the details but here's what I've got so far-

1. Lady & Sons Pot Roast  w/ Baked Potato Soup (12/8 & 9)

** Beef Roast: Use or Freeze by 12/10**
** Bacon **
1a. Leftovers: Steak Fried Rice 12/10

1b. Leftovers: Mediterranean Steak Pita Pocket Sandwiches12/11

2. Tomato parmesan chicken& Spaghetti w/ Broccoli Salad 12/12

** Chicken: Sell by 12/15 **
** Bacon **

3. Chicken Tortilla Soup12/13-15

3a. Chicken Quesadillas w/Leftover soup 12/14, 15 (Freeze any extra)

** Chicken: Sell by 12/15**

4. Healthy Carbonera w/ garlic bread & Salad

** Bacon ** 

5. Greek Pork w/ Spinach & Orzo w/fresh cut fruit & walnuts salad

** Pork: Use or Freeze by 12/20***

6. Cheesy Spinach Manicotti

Hey! Why not make one (OR ALL!!!) of these recipes with me?!?!
That would be so much fun!
You can make it the same day I make it or a day or two later after I get a chance to put up pics & all the details of the recipe.
Let me know if you're on board (please, please, please!)~


  1. Well, Girl, I definitely try to plan my meals for the week, but we're a one dish family. I hate to be responsible for a main dish and then sides. They never seem to all be done at the same time! AND the mess, all the post and pans, ugh!! :0)

    Love the blog!

  2. I'm the same way, Monica! I do really good with a main dish & sides are often an afterthought & just throw frozen vegetables in a pot. I'm making an effort to make more sides so it'll stretch the main dish for leftovers & get more veggies into my boys.
    I'm glad you like the blog! :-)
