Menu Monday {12.7.20}

This time of year, I’m looking for meals that don’t require a lot of hands-on time. I also try to keep our grocery expenses a little lower to balance out the extra shopping I’m doing.

Here’s what we had last week!

On The Menu


  • Cinnamon Rolls
  • My Favorite Green Smoothies I’ve been making them with fresh oranges, orange juice, spinach, a frozen banana and vanilla greek yogurt


  • Turkey Sandwiches
  • Leftovers


  • Crab Cakes/Mashed Potatoes/Salad with green leaf lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes
  • Quick Beef Chili/Carrots and Cucumbers with Ranch
  • Chicken and Rice/Steamed Broccoli
  • Berry Pancakes/Bacon
  • Meatball Subs (I cooked frozen meatballs with marinara sauce in the crock pot on high for 3 hours. I added cheese and served them on hot dog buns. So easy!)/Salad
  • Turkey Meatball Stroganoff/Egg Noodles/Garlic Green Beans

Here’s a tip for the pancakes: I put frozen mixed berries in the microwave for about 30 seconds. I reserved the juice and used the berries in the pancake batter. After plating the pancakes, I drizzled the warmed juice along with the syrup for an extra kick of fruity deliciousness!
