Menu Plan Week of September 22

My husband started grocery shopping last week. I must say he did a pretty good job. He spent more than I usually do, but he did get everything on my list and used a few coupons. He will continue to shop for the next month or so while the boys are in soccer. I am sure the more he shops the better he will get at finding the best deals.

My breakfasts and lunches are staying the same, basically because it is easy to make the same thing every week. The kids know what to expect and they like routine.

This week Org Junkie is asking us to submit family recipes. Shepherd’s pie is my kids’ favorite meal. Usually a 9×13 pan does not even feed the six kids.

If my menu looks a little repetitive this week that is because it is, why mess with something that is working!

Yummy Chicken Legs

  • Chicken legs
  • 4 Tbs melter butter

Mixed together in a bowl

  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 teas paprika
  • 1 teas garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to your liking

Remove skin from chicken legs

Melt butter/ then dip the chicken legs in the melted butter

Then roll the legs in the bread crumb mixture

Baked in a greased pan for an hour @ 350 degrees

These are delicious and a huge hit with the kids.

Shepherd’s Pie


  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • Garlic powder
  • 1 can cream of potato soup
  • 1 small bag frozen corn
  • Mashed potatoes (enough to cover a 9 x 13 pan)
  • Grated Cheese (cheddar, colby, jack… your choice)

Brown turkey on stove top, add onions during the last 3 minutes of cooking, I also season with some garlic powder. Mix turkey and onions with the cream soup. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with nonstick, then spread the turkey mixture in the bottom of the pan. Then layer the corn on top of the turkey, finally spread the mashed potatoes on top of the corn. Bake covered for about 25 minutes @ 350 degrees. During the last 5 minutes of cooking uncover the casserole and sprinkle with grated cheese.


  1. That looks sooo delicious!

    I need to do Menu Plan Monday again! It’s a great idea. 🙂

  2. Hey! I had so much fun last week being the guest Kitchen of the Week blogger! And it was fun getting to know my mother in law’s kitchen! We are doing oven drumsticks this week too! And I’m going to do a new variation of Shepherd’s Pie called “TX Cowboy pie” with shredded beef roast on top of potatoes with cheese! Coming in a few weeks…

  3. Great menu! I’m going to try that shepherd’s pie probably next week. YUM! That chicken sounds similar to one I’ve made and it is out of this world. I haven’t made it in a while either. LOL!

    Have a great week!!

  4. YUM, I love shepherd’s pie. Great menu 🙂

  5. Looks like a delicious week!

    Great job to your hubby re: shopping!

  6. Everything looks nummy!

  7. Sounds like a delicious week! Thanks for the links and we will definitely be trying the chicken legs! 🙂

    Take care,

  8. Your menu sounds great! The chicken legs look easy and delicious.

    Have a week full of blessings,

  9. I like the chicken recipe and may have to use that in the next week or so. I also like having spaghetti but I’ll wait until hubby is home from work next week before putting it on the menu or I’ll have way too many leftovers and the kids won’t it eat reheated.

    Hopefully we’ll be having pizza here this week as well.

  10. Hello! I stopped by to look at your meal plan. Thank you for sharing!
