Menu Plan ~ Week of April 21st

Here is something to think about. When you plan your menu for the week think about your weekly activities. I didn’t do this last week and some of the meals I had planned didn’t work out because I wasn’t home in time to make them. This menu is sort of healthy, our grocery money is running low so some of the meals are pantry meals this week.


pancakes, waffles, French toast, bagels, oatmeal, cold cereal


sandwiches, muffins, fruit, veggies, cheese & crackers, smoothies, salads for me


Monday– Steak, rice, and vegetables (carry over from last week)

Tuesday– Bean tacos and bean burritos, cornbread (pantry meal)

Wednesday– Chicken legs (recipe below), pierogies, green beans, salad

Thursday– Spaghetti, Salad, French Bread (pantry meal)

Friday- Not sure about this day, I would like to go to the Naval Academy to watch the Naval Academy Brigade of Midshipman Parade. If we are able to go, then we will probably just take snacks in the car.

Saturday– Pizza

  1. I may have to stop my diet for one night to bask in the glory of those chicken legs! They look too good to eat!


  2. Your chicken sounds good, I am going to try t with the chicken breast I have in the freezer 🙂

  3. Those chicken legs sound really really yummy !

  4. Oh, this is exactly what I’m looking for. Jaden’s been wanting to do chicken kinda like this for his Saturday meal, but I hadn’t gotten around to looking for a good recipe. We’ll be using bonesless/skinless, but it should still work out okay. Thanks, Toni!

  5. That recipe looks good, I think I’ll try it out my family this week.

  6. That chicken legs recipe sounds great!! I bet my family would LOVE it!

  7. Yum! Looks like a great menu and a great week! We’ve been basing a lot of our meals around on-sale meat from that week or the week before along with pantry items as well! Trying to keep both meat and produce purchases under $2/pound – and we’re doing well (who knew that it only took 30 seconds to remove the skin from a chicken breast? 🙂

    Have a great week!

  8. Oh my… those chicken legs look so scrummy! 🙂 I can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I have some chicken legs in the freezer. This recipe sounds great. It will definitely be on my meal plan soon!
