Have you tried FoodontheTable.com? It helps you find recipes based on what is on sale this week at your favorite grocery store(s). Pork tenderloin is on sale at my store this week so I'm trying a new crock pot roast recipe.

Wenesday: Beans , cornbread, salad veggies(Chipotle style bean bowls, Cowboy Beans and Cornbread, Red Chili or White chili)
Thursday: Pasta and salad (spegetti, lasagna, homemade mac and cheese, homemade hamburger helper)
Friday: Pizza and salad
Saturday: Meat dish, potatoes, hot veggie (baked chicken, roasted chicken, pot roast, or other meat from my freezer stash)

Crock pot chicken cacciatore over brown rice
meatloaf & masted taters
venison stirfry
whole chicken
veggie beef soup
breakfast
leftovers


That's where our menu ends- this will probably change this week as we have my Grandma's funeral sometime this week and DD is having surgery next friday.

Re: meal plan for this week

Tonight was coney dogs, homemade pasta salad, and chips
Sunday- Porkchops, baked potato, freezer corn form the summer and artichokes
Monday- Homemade Broccoli cheese soup and melted subs or salad
Tuesday- Stuffed Peppers and garlic bread
Wednesday- Salmon or Halibit, Rice and asperagus
Thursday- Chicken Fajita Burriotos with spanish rice and homemade guacamole and chips
Friday- Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and freezer corn
Saturday- Dad's choice sine he cooks
Sunday- Baby Back Ribs, homemade baked beans, Cheesy Potatoes, and Asperagus

We do bigger Sunday meals and we make enough food at night to give my husband his work lunch. I also always make 1 big pot of soup a week so he and my daughter can share it for lunches or an in a pinch dinner if need be. I'm working on next weeks list now so this is a great thread to help!

All I've got on ours so far is tonight is spaghetti with (made ahead) eggplant "meat" balls.
Tomorrow is pizza - bought the crust, have chicken breast in the freezer already cooked - and a few other toppings.
Past that - no clue.

Tonight is : pizza calzones
