Home-Ec 101 Weekly Menu Plan #17

Heather says:

After taking  a hiatus from creating the weekly menu plans with shopping lists, I’m finally ready to bring back this series. These menu plans are written for a family of 4 – 6, assuming the children are not toddlers with tiny appetites, leftovers are served or packed for lunch. One night a week is referred to as Clean Out the Refrigerator Night, basically a night off for the cook. Sometimes a recipe takes advantage of the leftovers from a previous night, this will be noted, otherwise feel free to shift the menu around based on your schedule.


  1. Lentil burgers, Stove-Top Macaroni and Cheese, Roasted Broccoli
  2. Oven Fried Chimichangas, Refried Beans, Tossed Salad
  3. Baked Potato Soup, Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
  4. Clean Out Refrigerator Night
  5. Steelhead Trout (or Salmon) with Maple or Honey Glaze, Butternut Squash, Lentil Pilaf
  6. Chicken Gumbo, Rice
  7. Country Style Cube Steak, Roast Potatoes, Collard Greens

The printable shopping list is editable with just a few clicks of your mouse and is provided courtesy of SayMmm.com, my favorite way to create and share shopping lists from my recipes.

    I have always done a list of what to cook each week. I also have a list of favorite recipes and what cookbooks and page it is on. It saves trips to the grocery and time at night. I am trying to wake up early to prepare things for the nights dinner. Haven’t gotten that far yet. I enjoy reading your list and getting new ideas. Thank you!

    We just started doing a list for what to cook last week. It has helped us out by giving us an idea of what we are going to do instead of going out and spending money.
