Weekly Menu Plan – Dec. 3, 2015

My Weekly Menu Plan, menu planning tools and free printables to help you save money on groceries and eat well. Pictured: Jerk Chicken and Arroz con Gandules I make when we are in the mood for delicious Caribbean food!

Whew, last week went so fast, I didn’t even get my weekly menu plan posted. I hurt my back somehow too so that had me not wanting to be on my feet as much, lots of quick meals in the weekly menu plan. I’m still a little out of sorts in my cooking/menu planning since Thanksgiving. Let’s hope I’m back on track this week.

The only topic I like to chat about as much as books is food! If you have a menu plan or a delicious recipe you want to share, feel free to link it up with our Small Victories Sunday Linkup. I’m always looking for new recipes to try.

This Week’s Menu Plan:


Frozen Nana’s Enchiladas (Superhubby’s mom makes them and freezes them for us, yum!) and Arroz Con Gandules from Skinnytaste



Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Banana Muffins from Eat Good 4 Life (they’re dairy free too)

Copycat Panera Bread Fuji Apple Salad from Creme de la Crumb 

Pulled Tandoori Chicken from A Big Man’s World with Channa Masala (Chickpea Curry) from Yummily Yours and rice



Cinnamon rolls and fruit

Remicade day means a Slow cooker meal: Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches from This Silly Girl’s Life with french fries and salad


Leftovers because it’s my usual grocery shopping day 



Homemade pizza


Cuban Pork Sandwiches from “Chef” Movie. Has anyone else seen Chef? We watched it a couple weekends ago.  When I asked what I should make for next week, this is all Superhubby wants. He even wants me to buy a panini press* just so I can make it more authentic than my usual version. I’m going to sneak in the waffle plates* that attach to the panini press/griddler and a food processor* while I’m at it since my cheap ones both broke on me! A cook is only as good as their tools and ingredients, am I right? 


Grilled Balsamic Chicken (a recipe I clipped from a magazine but don’t remember which one) and Creamy Dairy Free Mashed Potatoes from Watch Learn Eat.
