Weekly Dinner Plan 1/27 to 2/2

Weekly Dinner Plan for January 27th

Another full week of dinners at home!  During other seasons of the year/life we have busy weeks that require quick dinners, dinner on the go with fast food or packed snacky stuff for sports, or heading out to eat with family or something on the weekend, but lately it's been a lot of at home dinners! It's cold outside, and we are between sports (or at least the ones we have don't fall over the dinner hour...) so we are pretty happy to hibernate at home and enjoy a more relaxed pace for dinner while it lasts!

Monday:  Burritos

I typically make these burritos to use up leftover taco meat and just add in beans, salsa, cheese, etc.  We all really love them.  I may do a post soon with more details- they're a super handy, quick dinner to have in your docket and a great way to use up leftovers in a little bit different way.

Tuesday: Shrimp Alfredo

Tuesday is my daughter's 11th birthday, and as the tradition goes in our house, she gets to pick whatever she'd like for dinner.  Her favorite is when my husband cooks shrimp alfredo, so it's a win for me too!  I'll be in charge of garlic bread and salad only!

She has also requested a Llama cake for after dinner when family comes over to celebrate, so my hubby and I will teamwork that one.

(update- here's the final product! Not too shabby if I do say... we are NOT professionals and just wing it for the kids sake!)

Wednesday: Beef Stirfry and Rice

I am trying a new recipe for beef stirfry using a packaged veggie and sauce mix from the produce section.  I honestly just stumbled upon it randomly while doing my online grocery pickup and decided to give it a whirl!

Thursday: French toast and sausage

Brinner is a big hit at our house and we end up doing it almost weekly!  This time we are opting for french toast, and will make sausage/eggs/fruit to go with it, depending on time and mood!

Friday: Pizza Picnic and Movie!

We are just opting for plain old take and bake pizza this Friday.  We have not landed on a movie yet but might go with our second choice from last week!  We had narrowed it down to the old Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory or the new Dora in The Jungle (or whatever?) and Dora won out!  I think I'm going to make the decision for Willy this Friday because I haven't watched it in FOREVER!

Saturday:  Shredded Turkey sandwiches and cold veggies/chips.

Honestly, I'm just throwing this in the crockpot and having easy sides because I'm planning on Saturday being kind of busy with home projects and whatnot.  Either way, happy to have a pretty hands-off dinner on a Saturday!

Sunday: Crockpot beef roast and roasted veggies.

Not much to say about this one, just one of our favorites for a Sunday family dinner, and super handy to pop in the crockpot before church in the morning!

Happy meal planning!

P.S. I do Walmart Grocery Pickup for the bulk of my shopping list- total game changer and I can't recommend it enough! (HELLO- grocery shopping in my jammies at night.)  If you haven't tried it before, use my referral code for $10 off your first purchase.
