Weekly Menu for the Week of April 10 – April 14

It seems that I have resorted back to planning menus one week at a time.  Though I do still make a monthly Costco run, I find it easier to plan one week at a time.  Lately I seem to be in a menu planning rut.  I don’t seem to have to many fabulous recipes in mind to make, so this week I spent some time on Pinterest.  

I love Pinterest for inspirations on crafting, decorating, even camping.  I am sure you all have Pinterst boards as well.  I have pinned several new ideas to my “Recipes to Try Board” so this week – lets give a few a try!

Monday: Crockpot Bacon, Mushroom Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Salad (How can anything containing Bacon not be good! Can’t wait to try this one)

Tuesday:  Baked Beef Tacos

Wednesday:  Hamburgers and French Fries (I have a dinner meeting so I am keeping it simple for the boys)

Thursday:  Slowcooker Beef on Rice

Friday:  Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce and green salad

I hope these menus give you some inspiration.  If you try them, please share with me!  

Where do you get your menu inspirations?

Have a GREAT week –

Menu for the Week of March 27 – March 31

Hello All!  I am a little late posting my menu for the week.  I kind of messed up before my little trip away to Idyllwild.  I misplanned and we were running low on groceries last week.  I should have planned for 2 weeks to cover the week after my trip, but oops – life happens – so no formal menu was planned and we were just winging it.  

This week I do have a menu plan, hoever, it is only for one week. This coming weekend we will do our Costco shopping so I can get back on my 2 week program.

I know you are anxious to see what I will be cooking – so here goes….

Monday: Old Settler Beans – this recipe was posted on my fellow bloggers page (It’s A T-Sweets Day) and they were delicious!  Click here for the link to her recipe.

Tuesday: Chicken and White Bean Enchilladas

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Italian Beef Hoagies

Thursday: Slow Cooker Chilli

Friday: Asparagus Lemon Risotto

Hope you have a great week.  Remember if you try any of these recipes to let me know what you think.

Until next time – Auf Wiedersehen!


 2 Week Menu Plan for the Weeks of February 27 – March 3 and March 6 – March 10

So far I have been keeping up with the 2 week menu plan.  Sorry I am a bit late in posting, but time just seems to get away from me lately.  For these two weeks I am trying to use up some leftovers which I am incorporating into the menus and use the meats I have on hand.  After next week I will definitly need to make a Costco run.

The way I cook I often have leftovers.  We only have so many days in the week for lunches so instead of taking the same leftovers each day, I decided to freeze some of the leftover taco meat, veggies, pasta, rice, etc. and incorporate them into menus this week. 

So here is how I did it …..

Week of February 27 – March 3

Monday: Chicken Parmesan with zoodles (zucchini noodles)

Tuesday: Schinken Noodle (used leftover pesto pasta) green beans

Wednesday: Tilapia, leftover rice, salad

Thursday: Meatball subs (using leftover meatballs) salad

Friday: Paninis and soup (using leftover goulash and adding more liquid, potatoes and veggies)
Week of March 6 – March 10

Monday: Sweet and Sticky Orange Chicken, green beans

Tuesday: Bacon mac n cheese, Ham, corn

Wednesday: Enchilladas(using leftover taco meat and enchillada sauce) refried beans

Thursday: Baked Ziti casserole

Friday: loaded nachos

I would love to know what you are cooking up at your Haus. Let me know how you use your leftovers.  Hope you have a great 2 weeks!


2 Week Menu Plan for the Weeks of February 13 – February 17 and February 20 – February 24

I am getting used to planning my menu for 2 weeks at a time.  Since I did such a large Costco Haul 2 weeks ago, I did not need to buy any meat this week.  I have seen a drop in my grocery bill as well, since I am trying to use items I still have on hand.

So here is what I have planned for the next two weeks:

Monday: Schinken noodle and cucumber salad

Tuesday: Valentines Pizza, salad

Wednesday: Bacon and Potato Soup, rolls

Thursday: Chicken Pesto Pasta, salad

Friday: Hungarian Goulash, noodles, green beans


2/20/2017 – 2/24/2017

Monday: Spaghetti Cabonara, salad

Tuesday: Cabbage and noodles with sausage

Wednesaday: Asian Garlic Noodles with beef and green beans

Thursday: Taco Skillet

Friday: Chicken Burritos

I hope you enjoy these two weeks of menus.  Until next time, Happy Cooking!!!
