Homemaking, Weekly Meal Plan

Weekly Meal Plan {Feb 8-14}


It’s so nice to be cooking from scratch instead of buying so many convenience foods. Last week, our favorite meal was definitely Elizabeth’s Better than Helper Cheeseburger Macaroni!

We’re going to go grocery shopping tomorrow instead of today because I went out yesterday and need to go out tomorrow…and I don’t want to do that much driving three days in a row (we have one vehicle so if I have it, I have to drop of  and pick up my husband in addition to all the other driving). So even though I’m out of official “dinners,” I’ve decided we’re just going to have grilled cheese and soup tonight instead of doing what we’d all prefer… *cough* Chick-fil-A *cough* Yay me for overcoming temptation! lol

If you would like to read what we’ve thought of the new dinners I’ve made in 2017, click here. If you want to see where most of the recipes are coming from, you can follow my dinner recipes board on Pinterest.

Here’s this week’s meal plan:
