Menu Planning Monday #2

Welcome back to another Menu Planning Monday!

Here I will be sharing with you what I plan on making for dinner each week while trying to choose recipes that are healthy, budget-friendly and use similar items. And most importantly, that are simple! I am not one to choose recipes with twenty ingredients and eighteen steps. Simple, simple, simple! And if I can use the crock-pot, even better!

My hope is that you too will share your favorite recipes and we will all be rock stars in the kitchen and our loved ones will be kissing our feet.

Sound good?


Before we start, though, I want to state that I have NOT tried all of the recipes that I will be posting so if it doesn’t turn out don’t come knockin’ on my door. Mmmk? I will provide all of the original sources for each meal as well share any alterations I have made/will be making for our own family as mere suggestions.

AND, the best part, I have provided the shopping list for all ingredients at the bottom in a printable for you! AND have  left extra space so  you can fill in the rest of your shopping list. AND it’s in order by how I navigate through the store so there is no backtracking.

Booyah! All high-fives welcome!

Side note- I am not always great at planning side dishes, so you’re on your own, there.

Here we go!

(My notes- I am going to try to cut out the mayo from this recipe and see how it tastes, or at least lessen it.)

We will be heading to The Inlaws’ house for Thanksgiving for the rest of the week!

But here is the shopping list for these two meals- Grocery List 2

I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving with loved ones and stuff yourselves full the rest of the week!

Thanks for stopping by!
