Week 135 Menu

I bought a pizza stone last night. And a pizza peel. I am SO excited. I can’t wait to try them out, so we are definitely having homemade pizza this week! Thanks to Lindsay for convincing me to get a stone and a peel. Okay, so she didn’t have to do much convincing, I was easily sold.

Paninis (probably chicken…Cate’s been asking for these, so why not?)

– Homemade pizza
– Salad

Aaron & Lindsay’s Chicken Tortilla Soup Extravaganza (Here’s another link to a second post I wrote about this soup. It’s that yummy. And photogenic.)

– Leftovers

– Cookout (hamburgers and/or hot dogs and/or BBQ chicken)
– Corn on the cob, watermelon, that sort of thing…

– Eat out


Okey dokey, pokies, please share your menu for the week! For those of you who haven’t been planning or posting…I’ll cut you some slack, it’s summertime. But come September it’s back to the grindstone, ya hear?


  1. Lucky lucky! I have a pizza stone but in order to properly use it, you really do need the pizza peel too! Have fun making homemade pizza, it’s the best.

  2. I have been wanting a pizza peel but have had the hardest time finding one, so thank you for the link!

    My dad is coming to town this week, so we are playing it by ear. We usually eat out once with him so we’ll figure that out when he gets here. But I do have a few meal ideas for this week.

    Italian sausage, veggie, and pasta toss
    Caribbean Chicken with Pineapple Salsa

    The rest we’ll decide on later.

  3. 3

    I’m getting back into the swing of planning meals now that we are adjusting to life with our new little guy!

    Mon: Salsa crockpot chicken with brown rice
    Tues: Grilled chicken with cranberry apple chutney, squash
    Wed: Tortellini with fresh pesto and veggies
    Thur: Chicken tacos, rice and beans
    Fri: Sausage calzones, salad
    Sat and Sun: leftovers and grilling

  4. Hello All~Second week in a row posting/planning my menu! This is so beneficial for us! Although last week my 2 mo old wanted to be held a lot more which made cooking a challenge, so some items are back on the menu this week:

    Mon: flounder + salad
    Tues: chicken fajitas
    Wed: brian’s ceasar salad + homemade bread
    Thurs: quinoa salad + turkey sands
    Fri: go to CT

    Jane best of luck with your stone + peel!!! It took a lot of practice, flipping my wrist, to work the peel just right.

  5. 5

    Hey everyone. I’ll be starting school again pretty soon, so I know I’ll be changing what I’ll be cooking, and perhaps use the slow cooker more often, as we want to be a bit more budget minded, until then, I am actually stretching the bucks this week, as we most things, just need to pick up a few perishables.

    Sun – TJ’s Bool Kogi, rice and steamed broccoli
    Mon – out at CPK for niece’s birthday
    Tues – Cheese sandwiches and Tomato soup
    Wed – Spicy Orange Langoustino’s, rice, veggies
    Thurs – Pasta, garlic bread, salad
    Fri – Chicken Satay, rice, veggies
    Sat – Slider’s, Fries

  6. I love my pizza stone; I’m sure you’ll love yours! If you’re ever running behind and don’t have time to cook the pizza from the pizza dough stage, try using lavash bread. I keep it in the fridge/freezer for “emergencies” and my family chows down on it! It’s fast, healthy, crunchy, and tasty…what more could you ask for!?

  7. Monday: Mapo Tofu and veggies
    Tuesday: Spinach Stuffed Shells (I’m trying your recipe here!) and Salad
    Wednesday: Mac and Cheese and Apples

    We love our pizza stone, we’ve had it for at least 8 years and it just gets better with age. It kind-of gets ‘seasoned’ after cooking many pizzas over time (and re-heating, it’s terrific for keeping crusts crisp). Enjoy!

    I am traveling for work this week but did prep ahead – so hopefully my family is having:
    Mon-homemade mac & cheese, green beans
    Tues-leftover meatballs made into meatball subs (sorry, wish you were here!), salad
    Weds-inlaws paying a visit and bringing food
    Thurs-leftover mac & cheese, broccoli
    Fri-I’m back! We plan to pick up some yummy fried chicken and have it with corn on the cob.
    Saturday / Sunday – lasagna and a pizza at some point

  15. 15

    Pizza is on the menu for us this week too. I have to say though I like the concept of the Pizza peel, we just don’t use ours much. We do have two pizza stones so we can do two pizza’s at once and have leftovers for lunch.

    T: Homemade Pizzas, most likely a Margherita and a pear, caramelized onion and prosciutto
    W: Dinner alone: American Chopsuey
    T: Dinner alone: Leftovers, If I have time, making some freezer meals.
