Meal Planning & Shopping List: Week #3


Good Morning Lovelies! How was everyone's week? I love all the e-mails I received this week. You are all meal planning and saving money and time. I am so proud of you all!! This week I have a new meal plan for you  Some are my recipes and some are yours. I can't wait to get cooking this week and hope you all enjoy the easiness of Blissful and Domestic Meal Plans. Keep up the good work! You all rock!

Before I get into this week's menu plan, I just want to remind you of something real quick. I do shop for the month, but I break down my meals into a weekly plan. I have a master list for the month that I pull meals from. When you look at the grocery lists, which I include in each Menu Planning post, always shop your pantry first. Cross the stuff off the list that you already have on hand. Once you have done that, you will be ready to go grocery shopping.

All right I have included this weeks menu plan here in the post, with links, and then again in a printable format. I have included 6 days of meals, with Sunday being a day for leftovers. On Sundays, when we come home from church, everything leftover from the week is fair game. I heat up our meals and we all enjoy our favorites from the past week. Sometimes I have to add some extra veggies, yogurt, or fruit to round out our leftovers night. I also added one planned dessert for this week. We love our sweets and since we don't buy them at the store, I try to get a little baking in as well. The items for my desserts I usually have on hand in my pantry. I will include them on the shopping list as well.

Most meal recipes do not include a side dish, unless otherwise linked and noted 

I am leaving that one up to you :) I also serve all my meals with a vegetable or fruit.

Weekly Menu #3

Monday- Taco Bean Tortilla Soup with tortilla chips

Tuesday- Breakfast Night - Buttermilk Pancakes, eggs, and bacon

Saturday- Crockpot Loaded Potato Soup with corn bread

  1. Thanks so much Danielle...everything looks great!

    Do you have any tips on saving $$ on honey? (ingredient on chicken leg recipe above). I love cooking with it but it can be so expensive! Do you buy it in bulk like baking supplies?

  2. Love this so much! Your recipes are so basic and "real," no random weird ingredients no one has :). Very cool and helpful. Bless you.


  3. Thanks, Danielle! This week looks yummy :)

  4. thanks for sharing my potato soup recipe! Glad you like!
