Meal Planning – Week of December 7-13



Another week is here!  After last week’s plague that swept through our house, I’m glad to be back on track with planning out meals this week.  We’re heading to Disneyland on the weekend, and also celebrating my birthday this week, so I have a lot of nights off!  My mom is also living with us now and is cooking 1-2 meals a week so we both get to enjoy cooking AND enjoy a night off 🙂 Here’s what we have going on this week:

Sunday: Chicken Pot Pie – Since we made this last night, I’ll share that the dish was definitely missing “something”.  The top crust was a bit too crusty and not sweet. Maybe it needed a light spread of melted butter before going in the oven? Not sure.  This pot pie served 1 small slice to each kid, 2 servings to Jon & I, and one for my mom.  This, in itself, is not a full meal to serve for a family.  Maybe if you have a hearty salad it would be better. Or a killer dessert 😉


Meal planning is going to be up on the blog tomorrow. Tonight we enjoy pot pie! #dellmealplanning
