Weekly Meal Plan and Grocery List #36 | Life as MOM

Don’t you just love it when your kids get excited about what’s for dinner? It doesn’t always happen around here, but when it does, I’m pleased as punch, whatever that means. Historically, my kids hum while they eat, when it’s a dinner they like. If everyone is humming, I know that was a homerun.

This week’s meal plan is full of hum-worthy recipes. All of them are things that my people gobble down. Some of the kids aren’t super crazy about the tomatoes on the pizza, but it’s a parent favorite around here, so at least we’re humming!

(There’s a note in the meal plan to help you plan for alternate toppings if classic cheese and tomato isn’t a favorite choice at your house. However, I highly recommend you try it. It’s pretty darn awesome.)

    I just had to tell you – your chicken, bean and cheese burritos have become a favorite at our house. Sometimes, we reheat from frozen in the microwave. Other times, we brown them up on the griddle and top with a little sour cream and picante. Yum! I’ve actually used black beans in them a few times and the kids gobble them up. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe!

    • I’m so glad to hear it. I really need to make some more of these. My people eat faster than I can cook. I swear.

        With 7 in our brood, I completely relate. ;). I bought 2 packs of burrito size tortillas (yep, that’s 60) and 5 lbs of cheese to crank out a huge batch of these this week. :). Plus Crystals brown bag burritos – hopefully the combination will help tame the eaters.

  2. This is the first time I am trying a meal plan and as a recent college grad just starting to tackle cooking, this is perfect! I am especially looking forward to the beef ragu, enchiladas, garlic bread and apple floats! Thank you!!!

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."
