Week 760 Weekly Menu

Long time no talk! The day after Thanksgiving marked the beginning of floor demolition in our house. Unsurprisingly, the past week has been insane. Hence, no menu plan last week. But we have our kitchen back now (yay!) and we are sick to death of eating out/spending money on takeout. It’s time to get back in the kitchen! Also, we have wood floors now and I feel so grateful and excited. 

Week 760 weekly dinner menu from This Week for Dinner





  • Leftovers



  • Takeout night


Please share your menus/recipes/meal plans in the comments below! It’s good to be back, looking forward to seeing what you’ve got cooking!

    • thanks, vicki!

      also, pork marsala? what cut of pork and how do you prepare it?

    • Vicki


      The original recipe called for pork chops, but I used a pork roast and cut it into cubes, seasoned and coated with flour, then browned. Then just cook similar to chicken marsala. My family still liked chicken marsala best :).
