Meal Plan Monday

This Weeks Pantry Meal Plan – See what I came up with!

This weeks meal plan is based on items that I had in my pantry and freezer. We are on a tight budget this week, so I needed to make sure that I was using what we had on hand to keep the grocery bill down! I found some really good deals on ground beef last week, so I have about 9 lbs in my freezer. I also have chicken thighs in the freezer, bacon, tortillas and eggs in my fridge. Then in the pantry, I had pinto beans, white beans, and cornmeal.


So… this is what I came up with:

Monday: Chili Mac – This is a simple chili recipe mixed with macaroni noodles.

Tuesday : Soft Tacos with my small group bringing the other ingredients. (I make Pinto’s, and homemade pico)

Wednesday: Bacon Sprinkled Chicken Thighs with Roast Cauliflower and Green Beans

Thursday : Couples Small Group/ Pasta Fagioli with Cornbread

Friday : Breakfast for dinner – Scrambled Eggs, Pancakes, and Bacon


This week, I am going to be adding 3 recipes to the blog! Chili Mac, Bacon Sprinkled Chicken Thighs, and Pasta Fagioli.

Would you rather have an Instant Pot Chicken or Baked?? Chicken Thighs are a lot more forgiving in the oven than chicken breast, so they will be delicious either way.

Speaking of recipes… I did a poll and asked if you would like to have a shopping list for my meal plan Monday’s. I got a great positive response to that, so I am going to start looking into seeing how I can make that happen!

So, be on the lookout for those new recipes and happy cooking!
