Meal Plan Monday: Family Favorites 2-week Meal Plan

Sometimes thinking up two weeks of meals is hard! I’m just getting over a few days of illness, and I have little energy to try out new recipes. Perfect time to rely on our “family favorites,” those meals we eat all the time (most are cooked without recipes, just made from memory). Does your family eat the same meals all the time? Tacos, pizza, mac & cheese, whatever your “usual” is, it’s perfect for your family’s meal plan. Just get it down on paper and make your shopping list around it!

If you’re just getting started with meal planning, see my tips about how to get started or my Meal Plan Video. Here’s the plan for this week and next:

Sunday–Homemade spaghetti sauce, spaghetti (for them, GF pasta for me), green beans, salad
Meatless Monday–Cheddar Corn Potato Chowder, leftover salad
Tuesday–Slow Cooker Pulled Pork, buns (GF for me), carrots & celery sticks
Wednesday–Chicken Fajitas, black beans, brown rice
Thursday–Sausage & Vegetable Medley
Friday–Hamburgers w/sauteed mushrooms, sweet potato fries, corn
Saturday–Slow Cooker Broccoli & Beef, brown rice noodles

Sunday–Ginger Chicken Soup, gluten-free cornbread
Meatless Monday–Fiesta Corn & Black Bean Toss mixed with quinoa
Tuesday–Ham & Broccoli Pie (I replace the chicken and use GF Biscuit Mix instead), salad
WednesdayGluten-Free Chicken Tenders, Homemade Fries,
Thursday–Slow Cooker Apricot Pork Roast, cauliflower, baked potatoes
Friday–Garlic Lime Chicken, brown rice, broccoli
Saturday–We’re going out to eat (first time in ages!) for hubby’s birthday, using a Gift Card I earned from my bank’s points program
