Welcome back to another weekly meal plan! We’re starting to have more and more nice days and it really does feel like spring now. I can’t wait to add more and more grilling and local fresh produce to our meal plans.
WEEKLY MEAL PLAN
YOUR GUIDE TO THE MEALS IN MY MENU PLANS:
FF = FREEZER FRIENDLY
SC = SLOW COOKER
MF = MEAT FREE
PLO = PLANNED LEFTOVERS
MA – MAKE AHEAD
BBQ – GRILLED FOOD
Fridays are now ALWAYS going to be meat-free until Easter. I’m also planning extra simple meals on Saturdays and Sundays so that we truly can take a Sabbath and spend some time focusing on family and fun!
This Week’s Meals
You will find that most of these meals are under $10 based on prices (sale prices where possible) in London, Ontario, Canada. We are feeding a family of 4 – 3 adults and 1 toddler, all with healthy appetites. We generally have some leftovers from our meals and if these aren’t being used as part of another meal, they are used for lunches throughout the week.
Prices are based mostly on those at No Frills and FreshCo, the two grocery stores we frequent most often. Lately, Food Basics, Giant Tiger, and Shoppers Drug Mart have had a few good deals and they are very close to our home too. So I am always sure to check them as well. Note: at this time of year, we are mostly using frozen vegetables as they tend to be better quality and have more nutrients than fresh. As fresh local produce comes in season, we’ll be using that.
Roast chicken (PLO), potatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, broccoli
Burgers, oven fries, vegetables and Ranch dip
Chicken (leftovers from Monday) and pasta salad (pasta, mayo, Ranch dressing mix, chicken, peas, cheese, bacon – throw in other things as you like) coleslaw (beet slaw instead of the kind made with cabbage)
Pork chops (SC), egg noodles, butternut squash, broccoli
Sweet Potato and Spinach Frittata (MF), tossed salad
Weight Watchers Zero Points Chili, cornbread
Beer can chicken, baked potatoes, corn, green beans
Breakfasts and Lunches
Canned soups. Frozen soups and chili.
Pancakes or waffles (we always have mix on hand)
Yogurt and bran cereal parfaits
Toast with jam and goat cheese or peanut butter
Sandwiches – lunch meat or chicken or cheese or cucumber and onions, selection depending on what’s on hand and on sale that week. This week we are having some egg salad wraps since both eggs and tortillas were on sale.
Salads – chef’s salad with hard boiled eggs, ham, and cheese added, Waldorf salad, Cobb salad
