Weekly Meal Plan with Grocery List #18 | Life as MOM

This week’s menu leans on the meaty side with the salsa verde beef and the pork tenderloin. Both are amazingly good. There probably won’t be much in the way of leftovers, I’m sorry to say. But, if there were, they’d go great in a foccacia sandwich. If you had leftover foccacia, of course. Mmmm…

One night is basically a BLT salad. Super yum. If you have folks who insist, plan for BLT sandwiches as well. Go for the gusto. Just make sure you’ve got enough bacon. But, really? If you make foccacia to go on the side, they could eat it any which way and be happy.

Sandwich night and commercial potstickers with a homemade sauce round out the week. Plan for a meal out (friends, restaurant, take-out, pizza?) and a night of leftovers and you are good to go, my friend!

There’s also a dessert, side dish, and a bread included in the list to give you inspiration and a little less thinking to do. All the meals are easy — what’s easier than the slow cooker, making your husband fire up the grill, and making salads and sandwiches? — so you’re going to eat well this week!

  1. My husband always compliments my cooking when I make your food. Thanks so much for all of this.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
