Weekly Meal Plan with Grocery List #29 | Life as MOM

This past week our family kinda played “pick-up” when it came time for supper. Since I threw my back out early in the week, I got thrown off my game. I hadn’t anticipated the issue of limited mobility. But, we survived, thanks to a well-stocked pantry and some back-up meal ideas. 

We didn’t eat out once we got home from vacation. This is a minor miracle. Most weeks without a meal plan would not go over so well.

This week’s meal plan is ready to go. It features slow cooked red sauce, chili, broccoli & cauliflower soup, chicken enchilada casserole, and chicken with mashed potatoes — all filling and comforting foods, perfect for fall. Be sure to read the notes on the meal plan to get tips on making prep easier and reducing your time spent in the kitchen.

  1. Thanks for the reminder about the meal plans. Seasons change in the life of raising kids and apparently I was the last one to get the word this time, so I need to up my game and get back on track with my meal planning. And I love the slow cooker recipes and comfort foods, and making them healthier too. Always appreciate what you do Jessica. Thanks.

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."
