Weekly Meal Plan to Print & Cook #9

Take the week off cooking with this easy, warm-weather menu. Just print the recipes and the grocery list and you’re good to go.

Weekly Meal Plan with Grocery List #9 | Life as MOM

This week’s menu plan is a nod to warmer weather. I know my friends in Minnesota are still experiencing a bit of a chill, but hopefully things are warming up elsewhere.

We had some 80 degree weather over the weekend that called for cool and easy meals. So, I tried to include those in this meal plan. May warm weather be the norm in the next few weeks. (But, not too warm, of course.)

This meal plan is easy, easy, easy. Nothing is too difficult, everything is delicious, and of course, it’s all kid-approved.

If your children aren’t fans of very spicy stuff, you can tone down the chiles in the Chile-Cheese Bake. Consider dividing the mixture in two if your house is divided in terms of heat.

  1. Have you done a post on stretching your meat? I know your pulled chicken sliders call for 1-2 pounds of chicken, does that really feed all 8 of you? We had a pound of stew meat for me, hubby and our toddler. We all ate dinner and I packed our lunches, but I didn’t get any beef for myself for lunch. We mostly use ground meats or I dice up our chicken because I know that it makes it seem like more.

      I try to keep to 1 to 2 pounds of meat if the price requires it. I would love to be more liberal with it, but not yet. So, yes, I try to make sure that there are enough vegetable sides to make it more filling. That’s better anyway. Not sure what I’ll do when I have more teenage boys, though.

  2. I love your meal plans. I was just wondering if you are creating them differently lately, the last few I have not been able to download. When I click on the download button, it says I need a plug-in installed but that there is not one available for the Mac. I was just wondering if anyone else is having this problem. I would really like to download the plans. Thanks so much!!

      I’ve edited all the download pages so that there are several ways to grab the pdf. Thanks for pointing out that glitch.

    I love you’re site so much. I LOVE all of these recipes.

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."
