Week 754 Weekly Menu

You know what is crazy? I started this blog right before I became pregnant with our second child, Anna…who is now a freshman in high school. This fact is kind of blowing my mind. Anyway, late start to planning this week after a very event-filled Homecoming weekend with the kids and my niece! Back to real life…

Week 754 Weekly Dinner Menu from This Week for Dinner



  • Chicken Tikka Masala and Goan Coconut Paneer (I love the Maya Kaimal Indian food grocery products. I use their simmer sauces and everyday dal packs and every one we’ve tried has been fantastic.)


  • Ancho BBQ Sloppy Joe, salad, chips


  • Burrito Rice Bowls


  • Leftovers


  • Takeout night


  • Smoked chicken (did I mention that this is our new favorite thing to smoke? Wow.)

Your turn! Share your menus in the comments below and have a great week!


  1. 1

    This week, a little bit of everything:
    — pesto pasta with baked zucchini fries
    — corned beef hash with carrot, potato and cabbage
    — broccoli cashew chicken over brown rice
    — baked fish, sweet potato fries
    — basic potato soup
    — chicken with black bean sauce over rice
    — cubed steak, brussels sprouts with lemon

    When ten pound bags of chicken quarters go on sale cheap I smoke most of them and freeze. Then we can have it any time. 🙂

  2. We were out of town this weekend, so I just made a big batch of pulled pork and we’re making tacos until it’s gone!

    I like Dawn’s idea of smoking and freezing meat. Cooked meat is handy to have when dinner prep time is short!

    Long time since posting. How have you all been? I’ve hit a meal plan rut so I’m back to this tried and true site of ideas.

    I’m trying to simplify with a meal that stretches into leftovers the next day plan.

    M- chicken lentil stew (or- boozy beef stew sub with chicken and chicken stock instead of beef buillion, and add lentils since I have some)-
    T- leftovers
    W- taco night (and move the friday marinated frozen teriyaki chicken from freezer to fridge)
    Th- leftovers
    F- chicken teriyaki, green beans
    Sat- free night- or eggs
    Sun- breakfast for dinner

    • so happy to have you back! I literally read through everyone’s menus every week to inspire the following week, it is just so helfpul. anyway, glad you’re sharing! 🙂
