Menu Plan Monday {10/17/2011}

posted by Andrea | 10/17/2011

I talk a lot about  meal planning here at Simple Organized Living, mainly because I know first-hand how much it helps ME to simplify and organize our weekly dinner time routine and plan my weekly shopping trips.

I also know how much money {and calories} it saves us since we rarely ever give-in to fast food, takeout, junk food, or expensive restaurants.

If you don’t currently have a method for meal planning, feel free to follow our weekly menu {below}, and make sure to check out some of my free meal planning resources at the bottom of this post!

{candy corn, chicken soup, and cheesy garlic bread — some of my favorite fall foods!}

Menu Plan Monday {10/17/11}


Monday — Wet Burritos {w/ salad, rice, chips, and salsa}

Tuesday — Chicken and Rice Soup — perfect for the cold weather that’s forecasted this week

Wednesday Egg, Ham, and Cheese Sandwiches {w/ fresh fruit, yogurt, and granola}

Thursday — Sweet and Sour Pork {w/ mashed potatoes, green beans, and fresh rolls }

We had this on our menu plan last week, but switched things up a bit due to a change in schedule… so since I already have all the ingredients in the house, it’s back on our list this week.

Friday — Lasagna Roll Ups {w/ garlic bread and salad}

Saturday — Family Baby Shower and even Dave is going… which means I don’t have to cook!

Sunday — Dinner at Dave’s parent’s house


Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

Chocolate Brownies

Ice cream

Any of the sweet snack options below


Granola Bars { I made a double batch with dried cherries, chocolate chips, and almonds}

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Twix Bars {I’m trying a new recipe}

Candy Corn/Peanut Mix — my favorite fall treat!

Chips and pretzels

Crackers and cheese


Organic Fruit Leather

Fresh and dried fruit
