Two-Week Meal Plan

meal planning

Happy Monday! I’m going to try something new–doing a two-week meal plan to keep with my goal of shopping less often. I did a big grocery shop on Friday that should give me everything we need for the next two weeks, minus a trip to pick up more milk and produce. So you’ll see a two-week meal plan posted every other Monday, and other Mondays I’ll bring back the Make Money Mondays feature.

If you want to give a two-week meal plan a try, here are some FREE printable planners to help:

  • MoneySavingMom has a 2-week planner that includes space for breakfasts, lunches, and snacks.
  • The Peaceful Mom has a 2-week planner that you can customize by changing the days or typing in your meals (plan out two weeks now, then print it out and use it again another month!).
  • Craft Sew Create has a great planner that includes a shopping list, but it’s only for 1 week at a time (below)

Weekly Menu Plan

Obviously, since we have all the food in the house, I can be flexible about which nights we eat certain meals. I do like to stick to my schedule of using the slow cooker on our busy nights. It’s so nice to walk in the house after Tae Kwon Do and have dinner ready to go. So easy!

Sunday–Herbed Pepper Rub Pork Roast, mashed potatoes and salad
Meatless Monday–“Real” Macaroni & Cheese with broccoli
Tuesday–Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli with brown rice
Wednesday–Chicken, leftover mashed potatoes and green beans
Thursday–Heart-shaped Homemade Pizza with sausage, mushrooms and olives with salad
Friday–Sausage Lentil Soup and cornbread

Sausage-Lentil-Soup-225x300

Saturday & Sunday–we’ll be out of town visiting the new baby nephew! My kids can’t wait to meet him.
Meatless Monday–Crustless Italian Spinach Pie and Homemade Italian Breadsticks
Tuesday–Chicken Fajitas in the DCB, whole grain tortillas and black beans
Wednesday–Slow Cooker Taco Pie (from More Make it Fast, Cook it Slow)
Thursday–Pineapple Pork Chops with brown rice and green beans
Friday–Corn and Potato Chowder
Saturday–
Baked Ziti (I’ll make two and freeze one)

  1. My boys eat way to much for me to go every two weeks. Glad to hear that you can! Stopping from MPM!

  2. Man, I want to come to dinner at YOUR house :)
    Google Calendar is my big secret for meal planning. That way I can link to new recipes I want to try, email my grocery list to myself, and check out coupons and deals at different stores. I have no idea how my mom used to do menu planning without a computer!

    • Ooh, that’s a great idea! I want to learn how to do it online. I just started using a Google Doc as a calendar to plan out my blog posts; it’s probably a similar concept for meal planning the way you’re doing it.
