Menu Plan Monday | Week 5 of my 5 Week Menu Plan

I plan my family's dinners in five week blocks to maximize my savings at the grocery store and minimize my stress at dinner time. You can read more about my strategy here in my Q&A post here.

I also answered several more questions about how I plan my big ol' menus and how I shop for them.  For more Q&A (because you're just dying to know, right?), click here.

This week, I'm cooking Week 5 of my latest 5 Week Menu Plan.

With St. Patrick's Day falling on Wednesday, I've made a quick change to include some corned beef (yum - my Irish grandma would be proud) on the menu that night.

I'll be planning a new 5 Week Menu Plan this week, one that will include Easter dinner (I host it for my family). I see lots of springtime inspired meals in my future!


Slow Cooker Italian Sausage, Angel Hair Pasta, Salad


Taco night! (Make doubled meat for the freezer.)


Corned Beef & Cabbage w/Irish Potatoes


Homemade Chicken Nuggets, Crock Pot Mac & Cheese, Veggie Sticks


Free night!


Breakfast for dinner (Dreakfast? Brinner? We need a word for that!)


Awesome Pot Roast with Egg Noodles and Steamed Veggies

The links to all the recipes above can be found at in my 5 Week Menu Plan post right here.
