A Four Week Meal Plan

My life has been chaotic lately. i have forgotten important appointments. I have started to procrastinate important tasks. I have run out of precious time to do all those things I lov to do. In an effort to simplify the most stressful part of my life: cooking, I have made a rotating Four week meal plan. I worked under the constraints of needing sandwiches on Mondays because Dustan does the cooking (I am at Mops), one soup per week, and Sunday had to be a super fast meal.

Four Week Meal Plan

Week One:
Monday: Caccitore Chicken Sandwiches with green beans (These are chicken patties topped with marinara and parmasan cheese)
Tuesday: Black Bean Chicken with corn
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Chicken Noodle soup with buttered bread
Friday: Chicken and Broccoli Casserole
Saturday: Hamburgers with fries and salad
Sunday: Chicken Quessadillas

Week Two:
Monday: Ham sandwiches with chips and apple slices
Tuesday:Pot Pie
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Potatoe soup in bread bowls
Friday: Cowgirl Beans with cornbread
Saturday: Spagetti with salad and garlic bread
Sunday: tacos

Week Three:
Monday: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and tomato soup
Tuesday:Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and green beans
Wednesday: leftovers
Thursday: Bean Soup with biscuits
Friday: Angel Hair Pasta with shrimp and Spinach
Saturday: Shephard’s Pie
Sunday: Marinaded grilled chicken or steak with salad and veggie medley

Week Four:
Monday: Tuna sanwhiches with apples and peanut butter and chips
Tuesday: Savory Herb Beef Roast with mashed potatoes and green beans
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Chili with cornbread
Friday: Quiche and salad
Saturday: Chicken a La King with peas
Sunday: Citrus Dijon Chicken with broccoli

Most of these meals can be frozen which I plan to do. I am working on a shopping list now.
