weekly meal plan and haul 91415 thumbnail final

I quickly whipped up a menu plan without putting much thought into it because a cold has zapped me of energy.  Still, I’m pleased because we’ll be eating through more pantry items so that soon I can refresh my stock for fall and winter.  Oooh, comfort food, here I come!

Here’s what’s cooking in our home this week: {You can also see the plan and corresponding grocery hauls in the video below}


  • Monday: Gnocchi, veggies & fruit for Munchie, Trader Joe’s Chicken Tikka Masala w/rice & garlic naan for my husband (I’m under the weather and sticking to a bland diet and lots of hot water)
  • Tuesday: BBQ Baked Chicken, Parmesan orzo, zucchini strips, salad,
  • Wednesday: Slow cooker creamy pork chops (w/brown rice), broccoli, salad
  • Thursday: Broccoli cheddar soup, cornbread, salad
