Menu Plan for April 4 - 10

I can't believe we're already well into April. Geez.

To be perfectly honest, I had a hard time getting into menu planning for this week. Every so often I have weeks where I just feel uninspired when it comes to cooking. However, I know that if I plan the menu out, I'll be much better off at the grocery store (instead of running up and down the aisles a million times) and not a frantic mess at dinner time. With that in mind, I pushed through the "cooking block" and came up with this:

Breakfasts: Eggs, cereal, turkey bacon, fruit smoothies, and muffins.

Lunches: Soup, salads, sandwiches, hummus, and leftovers.

Sunday - Steaks, asparagus and roasted red potatoes

Monday - Turkey Chili.

Tuesday - Out

Wednesday - Lamb schwarma with baked sweet potato fries

Thursday - Roasted chicken with broccoli au gratin

Friday - Grilled fish packets with vegetables and bread.

Saturday - Homemade General Tso's Chicken and vegetable lo mein - Y'all should check out the awesome recipes on Tasty Kitchen!

Denver Metro Moms is my go-to source for excellent grocery store sale lists when I'm planning out my weekly menu.

What are you making this week?


  1. Hi! Found you through MPM, and I'm following your blog now. I'm going to have to try the General Tso's Chicken - that sounds so good!

    Come visit me if you get a chance - I'm at

    Have a wonderful week!

  2. We are having:

    White enchiladas
    Cheesey Chicken bundles with broccoli
    Asian flank steak
    Garlic Herb halibut
    French dips

    The General Tso's recipe looks good. I have a fav spicy chicken recipe but I'll have to see how this compares!

  3. I'm glad you pushed through your cooking block -- I get that too sometimes. That's when I pester my hubby for what he wants to eat ;-)

    Looks like you came up with a delicious week!


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
