Real Life and Simple Weekly Meal Plans – September 16

Shares 0

If you want a sneak peek at this week’s simple Weekly Meal Plans (we’re focusing on filling the freezer this month!), just keep scrolling.  Or you can take your time and read through the chit chat.


I knew Jim wouldn’t be home for dinner several nights this week.  For some reason, if he’s not home I don’t feel like I need to make dinner.  Which is crazy, because those of us who are home (whether that happens to be 2 or 5 or more, if the kids have friends over) still need to eat.

I also hoped to create some new recipes this week.  One of the ways I do that is to stock the kitchen with basic ingredients and then put myself under the same pressure we all face when it comes to dinner – either the pressure of needing to fill the crockpot with something in the morning or the pressure of standing in the kitchen at 5:30 trying to come up with something to eat.

Now you know why most of the meals and recipes I post are so easy!

These two things didn’t work together for me well this week.  Since I knew Jim wouldn’t be home, I didn’t have motivation to cook or create.

We did eat though:

  • French Toast and Ham
  • Pesto Tortellini with grilled chicken and tomatoes
  • Tilapia, veggies and pasta with cheese
  • Taco Soup – my very last slow cooker freezer meal!

I am highly motivated to create a new slow cooker freezer meal plan for the Weekly Meal Plans.  Those meals have been wonderful to have on hand.  And only having to spend 1 hour to get them in the freezer is definitely time well spent.#

I love this slow cooker!  Actually, I’ve never used it, I just wanted one for a long time.  I’ll be giving away 2 of them, along with an assortment of Libby’s products to two participants in the #DinnerDilemma Twitter party.

I’d love for you to join us on Monday 9/16 at 3pm EST.  We’re going to be talking about all kinds of things to help get dinner on the table each night, from recipes, to bulk cooking, to side dishes and more.

Be sure to follow @LibbysTable and me, @TiffanyAKing on Twitter.
