Weekly Menu: Week 20

Happy Friday!!

I’ve seriously waited all week for today. It’s finally the weekend!

I’m starting to feel normal again. I hate to jinx myself, but I think that I am slowly approaching that wonderful “honeymoon” phase of my pregnancy. The “morning” sickness (which was really more of an “all-day” sickness) is happening less and less frequently, I haven’t been wanting to curl up in a ball on the sofa at 5:30 each day, and miracle of all miracles…I ate BEEF last night!

But then I had debilitating gas pain until approximately 2AM. So, there’s that.

Someday meat might return to the menu, but I’m clearly not ready yet.

I was informed this afternoon that a quick glance at my recent pins on Pinterest shows primarily pictures of pasta and various other forms of carb deliciousness.

And…that is a very valid point. But there are some bird feeders and gardening ideas thrown in there for good measure!

This week is no less carb-centric, so I’m going to apologize in advance.

I Don’t Have This Left in My Freezer, but Maybe You Do (yep, I just made this a category):

Weekly Menu: Week 12

Isn’t the new website pretty cool?! I sort of just threw it together in the past few days, so you’ll notice that things will probably continue to morph and grow over the coming weeks. I’m slowly adding the past Weekly Menus onto the site, but for now I’m just focusing on making sure that you have this week’s new menu on time!

New Menu

If this is your first time, you can read all about my menus here.

I’ve just started scouring my old website (RIP Joggerslife) for recipes that I may want to reincarnate, and there is some good stuff on there!  Now I’m deciding if I want them to live on the 52 Menus | 52 Weeks site, or if I want to put them somewhere else entirely. I’ll let you know how that goes.

This menu is a little “comfort food” heavy, and I even added a recipe for Old School Mac N Cheese. Don’t question the deliciousness…just go with it! I promise we’ll only do this every once in a while.

Here’s the recipe list:

Just a few things to remember…I only include items on the grocery list for new recipes. That means that if you’re just starting out and you want to incorporate one of the two ‘freezer pulls’ this week, you’ll have to add the ingredients for Baked Vegetable Egg Rolls and Vanilla French Toast to your own grocery list. The grocery list is completely modifiable (it’s provided in Word format), so you can add what you need to it.

This week I also added a text box on the right side of the grocery list for “Weekly Items”, which is what I do with my own list. That way, you can add the things that you need to pick up in addition to your 52 Menus | 52 Weeks stuff (or add the other miscellaneous items that are on my menu like apples, pears, mixed veggies, etc.). If you’re in my household, you NEVER forget the mandarin oranges. That would put us in crisis mode.

Here’s the Grocery List for 031813-032213, and here’s the Game Plan for 031813-032213

I added a batch of Mini Pizzas on to the ‘Make Ahead’ list this week, so just do that when you have a little bit of spare time. You can do it any time during the week–we’re just stocking the freezer for future meals!

As always, just email me with any questions! Hope everyone has a great week!
