Weekly Menu

Hi gals!

Sometimes I struggle coming up with a weekly menu so I was wondering if y'all would be willing to share your weekly menus with each other? That way we can share the love and the good ideas and help each other out in the process!

Here is the most recent menu that Jordon and I brainstormed for the past week and a half. (Yes, week and a half... only because Jordon got on a roll with finding ideas while flipping through some cook books and I wasn't going to stop that goodness!) We like to do at least a couple of meatless meals each week so that is why those are thrown in there...

In no particular order:
Potato bar
Chinese Chicken Salad (Our Best Bites has a great recipe for this)
Navajo Tacos (using Heather's scone recipe)
Creamy Vegetable Chowder (from my Pinterest)
Creamy Tomato and Spinach pasta (from my Pinterest... but we both discovered that we don't like cooked spinach so we have nixed this idea for good)
Cranberry orange chicken salad (Our Best Bites recipe and it is STELLAR!!! Seriously, my favorite chicken salad recipe now!)
Sloppy Joes (homemade recipe from the Mormon Cookbook - I'd be happy to share with anyone who would like it. It's super easy and I added my own twist to it)
Lettuce wraps (Our Best Bites and it's DELICIOUS! And not that hard!)
Tin foil dinners

We now have this week to create a menu for... and I'm looking forward to anything y'all will share! I'm thinking this could be fun to do every now and then?? I know there are some great ideas for dinner that I just forget about so I'd love to hear what y'all do for your menus!

Love you ladies!!!

  1. It's funny you say you do a few meatless meals a week, because we only do one or two meals that have meat in them a week :) We do theme weeks at our house, sometimes. Like breakfast week: pancakes, breakfast burritos, whole wheat waffles, muffins and fruit, German pancakes, eggs and toast, french toast. Or Mexican week: Tacos, quesadillas, Mexican rice, Mexican lasagna, burritos, etc. I've found it's easier to plan with a theme. Other themes we've done are Italian, American, Salads, Asian or Pinterest (I actually try those recipes I've pinned).
