Week 315 Menu

It’s Super Bowl Sunday! I don’t know about your countertop, but mine is stocked and ready to help me make some football-watching fare, including 7-Layer Dip and the decidedly devilish Sweet Chex Mix. Yum! And…Go Niners!

It was SO GREAT to get back into a routine of making dinner this past week. Let’s see if I can keep up the momentum!

– Chicken Masala and rice (using Trader Joe’s simmer sauce, no recipe)
– Roasted carrots

– Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burritos (new recipe I’m trying)

– Lasagna-Style Baked Ziti (another new recipe)
– Salad and garlic bread

– Leftovers

– Take out

– Homemade hamburgers

– Steak of some kind (the girls have been requesting this regularly for a week!)
– Roasted fingerling potatoes and another veggie (like green beans or broccoli)

You know the drill! Please share your menu for the week with us! Remember, plain or fancy, we love them all! Also, it’s okay to post later in the week, it’s never too late! Have a great week, everyone!


  1. 1

    No Super Bowl fare or even watching at our house. No worries, though, we’ve still got a busy day ahead of us. Here’s our menu for this week.

    Sunday – Green Bean Yachni over egg noodles, sauteed kale

  13. This week starts with much more food than normal for a Sunday. Usually we eat light on Sunday, but with a guest for the game, and the game at dinner time, we have quite the variety of dishes. This will be the biggest cost meal of the week, but will yield lots of leftovers for lunch or to be reincarnated. I’m still trying to low-carb and no-pork my meals, so this is a challenge. But a yummy one.

    Sunday: Beef chili, corn muffins and corn dog muffins, Hormel party tray (coupon stack and price cut at Target!), turkey pepperoni to sub for some in the tray, “tots” (DH is making, as I won’t touch the things), chips and salsa, layered dip, cookies. Phew!

    Tuesday: Tamale pie, doctored tomato soup and/or leftover chili from Sunday.

    Saturday: Leftovers or enchiladas made from leftovers, salads, rice for them.
