Weekly Menu: Week 18

Another new week is upon us!

Guess what?

I’m STILL carb loading. Sorry guys. I’m only 5 days from the 2nd trimester, so I sincerely hope that I can report something different to you next week. But for now, mama is feeling gross still.

This menu, I’m most excited about this…

Strangely, the recipe calls it “Poverty Meal Recipe”. That just sounds so…Oliver Twist to me. We had this on a weekly basis in my house growing up, but we just called it “goulash”. Isn’t that what this is? Still not the most appetizing name, but much better than eating anything with the word ‘poverty’ in the name.

So yeah. I’m most excited about eating poverty meal next week. That tells you so much about the place that my stomach is in right now. Comfort food is the name of the game.

I’m also excited about the “Banana Banana Bread”, but slightly less.

But it looks yummy, doesn’t it?

So here we go

That’s it! I tried to keep it simple–mostly for selfish reasons, because my energy is at like -59% lately. Not a lot of hardcore cooking this week, just some basic boiling, baking, and combining of things.

Here’s the plan for the week, the grocery list, and the full menu with all of the recipes attached (in pdf format–just download it and open in Adobe to see the attachments).

I hope that everyone has a fantastic, lovely, wonderful week. And I also hope that I can get off the carbs next week. Fingers crossed. They’re delicious and all, but no.

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!
