Meal Plan-ish

So.. I didn't post my meal plan last week. I just really didn't have the time! We DID eat though! :) I came down with strep the week before and I. was. miserable. I had a high fever, chills, horrendous body aches, and of course a sore throat. I went to the doctor on Wednesday afternoon and got some meds that evening. I started feeling better by Saturday. I shared it with Corey, so in essence I was caring for 4 children at one point! Poor guy came home early on Wednesday so I could go to the doctor sans kiddos and by the time I got home, he was miserable. He never got it as bad as I did b/c we got him on meds before it got worse, luckily! I'm not sure I could have handled his drama- lol. Men are wusses.

Anyway, the sickies put my plan out of whack, so many things were shifted to other days or not made at all. I did make several of the things though. I have decided that although the table I made last time with breakfast, lunch, and dinner is pretty and all organized-like, it really isn't realistic... yet. I think I will just post some meal ideas and select from them. This is better for me right now!

Here's some highlights from meals past:

Baked oatmeal.

I added chocolate chips, so it came out pretty dark, but it was good- not great though.

Crock Pot chicken-n-dumplings. Delish!!


Birthday calzone!

Oatmeal smoothie.

It was very tasty!

Meatloaf. I made mini loaves for Benjamin (using his egg replacer and rice milk).

I was going to be gone for dinner time, so I left directions for the hubs! :)

Loaded chicken nachos night. 

These brown sugar muffins were really good- and Benjamin loved them!

Crock Pot taco soup- yum!

Mini pizzas for lunch one day.

The kids LOVED the mini pepperonis! Brooke says normal sized pepperoni's are too spicy, but not the baby ones... mmmkay! Ben's are the ones w/out cheese.

Loved the crock pot sloppy joes! Served them on rolls with a slice of provolone!

Crock pot steel cut oatmeal. This was pretty good. Benjamin LOVED it and ate seconds and thirds on the days he ate it! Winner! 

 This is the cilantro lime Chipolte-inspired rice. Totally loved this!!

The crock pot salsa chicken was SO good and I served it over the rice.

Banana cookies made so Ben could eat them. He ate them. LOTS of them.

Dump cake. Yummo! Apparently I forgot to take pics of the cookies and cake after they were cooked and before they were all gone! Oops! 

This was crock pot country style pork ribs and skillet potatoes. Yummy!

And finally.. Monster cookies! These are so good!

They have oatmeal in them. Oatmeal=healthy. So, yeah, they are healthy cookies... or something.

I made a delicious crock pot beef stroganoff.

This week we are really focusing on using up what we have in our freezer and pantry.
So, we will have leftover bbq pork tonight and the rest of the week we will have:
Tilapia w/ potatoes
That dang vegetable beef soup that I keep saying we are going to eat but haven't yet! (My mom made it and it is frozen).
Pot stickers.
Frozen skillet meal.
Baked chicken.
I know I will see something that I will have to try.. and I will throw that in the mix!

Sorry for the lame meal plan this week, I will hopefully do better next week! :)


  1. I totally feel you on using up what is in the freezer. I told myself I wasn't allowed to go to the grocery store for protein until I finished what we had. Thanks for all the awesome ideas! Mr. Wonderful loves oatmeal so I will have to try that crock pot oatmeal and of course the monster cookies! Oatmeal= Healthy ;)

  2. I need links to your meals pleaaaaaaaase! And the oatmeal smoothie especially!

  3. Congratulations! I've named you one of 5 to receive the Liebster blog award! Head on over to check out more about it:
