Midweek meal planning 6/3/15


Welcome back to Midweek Meal Planning for the week of 6/3/15! It’s more traditional to meal plan on the weekend, but since our Chicago grocery deals mostly flip midweek, and since Wednesday hump day is when many of us start running out of steam, we buck the trend here and go with Wednesdays.


  • Sunday: MashupDad and I went out for fancy 18th (!) anniversary dinner, and the kids had leftovers.
  • Monday: Leftover Oven Roasted BBQ turkey breast.
  • Tuesday: Sandwich and salad bar.
  • Wednesday: Garlicky pork roast and potatoes with extra garlic (pictured above; recipe to come Sunday…). Used one of the cheap pork roasts from Jewel today.
  • Thursday: I found a turkey dinner sausage in my fridge that needs using, so if I get out in the morning for carrots and celery type stuff, I’m thinking soup.
  • Friday: It looks like it will just be me and Mr. 8 for dinner, so soup leftovers unless he talks me into something else.
  • Saturday: I’m going to be driving past Jewel, so am thinking of stopping in for cheap pub burgers and asparagus for the grill on their three day sale.

Your turn

How’s your week of meal planning going? Are you cooking mostly out of your pantry, or are you taking advantage of this week’s grocery sales? Let’s inspire each other!
