Two-Week Menu Plan {Menu Monday}

When life gets busy, I always default to a two-week menu plan! It’s not my favorite way to approach meal planning but it works so well for times like these. As of today we’re on the second half of this menu plan. I will be away from the house until 7:30 every night this week, so last week I doubled a few meals and put the extras in the freezer.

Here’s how I created this menu plan – I looked at everything I had in my freezer and pantry, planned my grocery list based on the sales, and then wrote out as many meals as I could create using those ingredients. Once I had a good list of meals, I fit them into the days where they worked best. They don’t necessarily appear below in the order we’re eating them. 🙂

Do you plan meals for a week at a time? Two weeks? Have you ever tried monthly meal planning (here’s a great resource for that, if you’re interested)?

On The Menu 


  • Smoothies
  • Avocado on Toast
  • Instant Oatmeal

  1. Sounds delicious! I want to get into a better smoothie routine for summer. I bet my kids would like them, too. Do you prep your smoothie ingredients ahead of time or just dump in whatever sounds good? Love your plan of salads topped with protein and that you plan to have several of your meals twice. That is such a time saver at my house.
