Menu Plan for the Week 10/2 – 10/8


BBQ Country Style Ribs

How last week’s menu went:

I moved things around a bit last week. I made the pizza for lunch one day instead of dinner, and added the Pizza Penne Bake (I add more sauce), which has turned into a new favorite “go-to” dinner around here.

Favorite meal from last week:

 I’m going with the BBQ Country Style Ribs.  I cooked them about 1 hour longer than the recipe and finished them on the grill. We all loved these.  The Chicken Tortilla Soup is also loved by all five of us and is a family favorite!

This Week’s Menu Plan


Monday – Celebrating Mr. RSS’s birthday!


  • Hearty Lentil Soup (I add celery, add chopped spinach instead of parsley, and only use 1/2 tsp of the balsamic vinegar – and I like to use turkey bacon, too)
  • Maybe some fresh-baked bread, like this Olive Bread



  • Pizza: one Buffalo Chicken pizza (I use a bit less of the chicken and blue cheese dressing. You must use Frank’s Hot Sauce if you want it to be right) and one regular cheese pizza with this crust (I double the recipe and use 1 cup of whole wheat flour)
  • Raw veggies


  • Easy Lasagna
  • green beans or salad
  • maybe garlic bread (I love garlic bread.)


  • Easy Chicken Enchiladas (I add enchilada sauce on top before the cheese, and sliced black olives, too.) topped with lettuce, fresh tomatoes, and sour cream
  • Chips and salsa

Other Updates:

  •  The MOPS playdate was a success! Things were looking pretty good around here, but I did hide some clutter. Again.

I’m linking up with OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday, where you can find many more meal plans to check out!

    And there is so much variety in the menu! I mostly recycle the same 6 dinners over and over. But I dream about cooking better and with more diversity of flavors.

  3. […] mostly stuck to last week’s menu except that the enchiladas got bumped to this week because of a date night that was happily […]
