Food of the Week! Weekly Meal Plan with Pictures

It's the end of the week and I wanted to follow up on my Weekly Meal Plan post with a look at our Food of the Week in pictures!

The plan....

Here's this week's Meal Plan (2/19/17 - 2/25/17):

Sunday: Caesar Salad Appetizer, Meatballs with Mashed Potatoes Entree
Monday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches with beans as a side
Tuesday: Sloppy Joe Sandwiches with green beans as a side
Wednesday: Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup
Thursday: Ham Steaks with vegetable salad
Friday: Pizza (A Friday night staple, as you know if you've followed our meal plans previously)
Saturday: Saturdays are commonly what I like to consider or call, "Kid's Choice Night!" - we frequently eat "kid's food" this night like chicken nuggets, mac'n'cheese, and the like.

And here's what actually happened! Real family, real food, real life.

Sunday: Caeser Salad Appetizer, Meatballs with Mashed Potatoes Entree

Kid's version!

Monday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Kid's version!

Tuesday: Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Wednesday: Life... life happened. So we are always flexible with our meal plans and this day turned into a flexible day. We had lots of "extra" things going on this day, which is why I originally had planned a crock pot meal. However an oil change in the morning that was supposed to be quick, ended up taking 2 hours and threw my entire schedule off, so that I didn't get back to the house in time to start the crock pot meal. Add to that an extra afternoon activity for Bella and a kindergarten information meeting that night for Natalie... and we had Wendy's for dinner. It happens.

Not sponsored people, just busy as all get out this day!

Thursday: Back on track! When I move the meal plan around, I may either trade days for meals or just move the meals down to the next day like I did this week. So we had the Crock Pot Tortilla Soup on this night. (Yummy!) Video forthcoming on how to make this one!

I also made this Cucumber Avacado salad which I've shown in a video previously, that we really love as a staple side dish and also for lunch some days!

Friday: Ham Steaks with potatoes

Kind of reminded me a smilie face! Do you see it?
And Saturday night will be kid's choice! This week we'll move the pizza down to that day and just have the pizza since that's always something everyone likes to eat!

I hope you enjoyed checking out this new format I'm testing out for our weekly meal plans and grocery hauls! I had previously had them on YouTube, but I wanted to see what people thought about having it over here on the blog!
