Meal Planning - February 28

I can barely believe February is nearly over! Not to be a negative nelly, but this month has really presented more challenges than I'd expected, including three funerals. My hymn of the month has been Chris Rice's version of "It is Well with my Soul". If you haven't heard it, allow me to provide you with a nice video:

So now, on to food for the week! Believe it or not, we did have a meal plan last week, it was just so crazy around here that about Wednesday I gave up trying to post it, LOL!


Lunch - Turkey & cheddar sandwiches on french bread, applesauce, carrot sticks

Dinner - Cheeseburger soup (made ahead & frozen), green beans, rolls


Lunch - Enchiladas, apple slices, chips

Dinner - Spaghetti w/meat sauce (sauce made ahead & frozen), garlic bread


Lunch - Leftover spaghetti, carrot sticks, orange wedges

Dinner - Mexican soup (made ahead & frozen; I make this with chicken, not turkey), chips, mixed veggies


Lunch - PB&J, apple slices, yogurt

Dinner - n/a (bowling league night)


Lunch - Turkey & cheddar on wheat bread, applesauce, carrot sticks

Dinner - BBQ chicken (prepared ahead & frozen) from the slow cooker on hamburger buns, coleslaw

Also, as a special treat, my dear husband has announced that he will be making baby burgers on Saturday night - yum! Now that we have entered TAKs season (state-wide standardized testing, for those of y'all who don't live in Texas) the poor thing is teaching 6 days a week instead of 5 for the next six weeks or so, so anything we can do to make his half-weekend a little better, we do. Let me tell you, kids, your teachers don't like Saturday school any better than you do!

Need some more meal ideas? Check out I'm an Organizing Junkie's Meal Plan Monday, where hundreds of other bloggers link of their meal plans for the week. That's where I've gotten some of our family favorite recipes!


  1. Hi, i just read your comment on my wife's blog about vita merfen from way back in October and was wondering if you are still looking for a way to get some shipped to texas. My brother lives in switzerland and i'm sure i could arrange with him to send you a tube. it's the greatest stuff ever; he supplies us with the cream whenever we're getting low. anyways, if you are still in need, let us know ( without the dots)

  2. Thanks for adding my linky to your list! I'm now following you. Hope you'll come back this Saturday and link up and even return Sunday for our Followed & Featured Blog Hop. See you there!

  3. That is one of my favorite songs. The strength in faith it must have taken to even THINK those words after what happened in the writer's life is just incredible.

    Thanks for sharing the Chris Rice version - I'd never heard it before!
