What’s for Dinner? Week 4, 2017 Meal Plan

Somehow, I was able to find the time and energy to come up with this week’s meal plan. I am so glad I did, too. Because every time I miss a plan, things tend to go downhill quite fast.

Here is what we’re having for dinner this week:

dinner, family, mom, family, meal plan

(The first meal is what I have planned per our theme-based meal plan and the second meal is the alternative for Elijah)

  • Biscuits & Gravy, scrambled eggs and fruit salad
  • Elijah will eat biscuits with jelly, a hard-boiled egg and fruit salad
  • Southwest Chicken with rice
  • Baked chicken with rice
  • Smoked sausage pasta bake
  • Smoked sausage and plain pasta
  • Schweinebraten & Kloesse (German Pork roast with dumplings), salad
  • We will try and see if Elijah will eat the meat and fresh vegetables. If not, he will probably eat a sandwich or oatmeal.
  • Sloppy Joe
  • Personal pan pizza
  • No cook Saturday. Everyone eats whatever they find and can make themselves.
  • Bacon wrapped steak, potatoes and vegetables
  • Elijah will (hopefully) eat the steak as well.


Read about our theme-based meal plan. It has really helped me with the weekly meal planning process.

      Thank you so much, Sarah. Saturday also happens to be our movie night, so it was just more convenient to have everyone find their own dinner. =) Yes, definitely more of an option once the kiddos are older.
