Meal Plan: Week of February 18th



This is Jeremy's week that he works PM's so the kids and I are on our own! Weeks like this usually mean kid-friendly and easy meals. With 2 nights this week of very little time in between events, I'm going to rely on my crock pot several times!! All of these recipes have been tested and {mostly} kid-approved! Ryan is my wild card and doesn't always like what we fix, but he's getting better! We might get out of his chicken nugget phase by the time he's 13...


As a reminder, I try to stick to a budget of $125 for groceries per week which also includes lunches for the kids and breakfast for the kids. I also try to have at least 2 meals that will have leftovers for Jeremy and Hannah to take in their lunches. Hannah's school cafeteria has a microwave that the kids can use, so that makes her lunch super easy! We dish out what she wants in her thermos thing and her lunch is then ready for the next day.


Monday:

Baked Tortellini

Garlic Knots (ok, so this is a new recipe that I want to try, but I think I can handle this one!)

•Caesar Salad-our favorite Caesar dressing is Ken's.


Tuesday:

•Pizza (total cheat night but we have to eat at 5pm so frozen pizza's for the win!)


Wednesday:

White Chicken Chili

•Corn Bread-we love Famous Dave's!


Thursday:

•Pulled Pork (I've used this recipe before but last week, I tried my own and it was A.MA.ZING. 2 pound pork shoulder, rub a barbeque dry rub on both sides, 2-3 shakes of garlic salt, 2-3 shakes of minced onions, smoked paprika, 6-7 shakes of liquid smoke, 1/4 cup of water, an entire bottle of BBQ sauce, plus just a little water in the bottle, shaken and poured in. All of this in the crockpot, on low for 8-10 hours.
