Weekly Menu Plan

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on March 4, 2012

I’m so tired of cooking meals. Just completely burnt out. Last week, in an attempt to have dinner prepared early, I make peppered turkey bacon in the oven, so we could quickly slap together some BLTs when Hubs came home from work. The bacon was done, so I left it in the oven on warm, to keep it, well, warm. But that only resulted in utterly burnt bacon. So burnt that we had to throw it away.

I’m oh so tempted to just start eating frozen meals every night. Except for Fridays of course, I can’t give up my homemade pizza night. Instead, I’m keeping things as simple as I can. The slow cooker is my new best friend, as are prepare-ahead meals, and meals that can be thrown together in under 20 minutes.

Repeat after me, it doesn’t have to be complicated to be tasty.

Here’s our menu for the week:

Dinner Meal Plan


  • Roasted red pepper, feta, hummus and spinach panini
  • Streusel-topped microwave French toast in a mug (recipe coming…in two(ish) weeks)
  • Italian tortellini soup

This week I’m also making

What are you eating this week?

I felt the same way while trying to plan my menu last week. Not inspired and tired of cooking. LOL But we still gotta eat. Was a bit easier this week.
Lemon Chicken, Alfredo pasta, pizza, veggies night, leftovers.
posting my menu plan this evening. I LOVE my slow cooker!

Ali: Honey don’t sweat it!

We all have our times.
Winter for me is really hard (I have sad). I usually have to drag myself to the kitchen!

Come spring, summer, fall you can’t keep me out of it!

Don’t beat yourself up over it.
