PThirty1 Two-Week Meal Plan: February 16 – March 1

Seems like February just started and now it’s just about over. It’s only 2 days shorter than an average month, why the heck does it go by so quickly?!?!

As I sit here writing this, my Valentine’s Day is ending. I’ve been under the weather these last few days so I didn’t put a lot of time and effort into this meal plan. vday writingNonetheless, I’m pretty pleased with it. 🙂 Some of these recipes have been on my list of things to try for over years – especially the Valentine’s Day dinner. I’ve never made crab cakes a day in my life! And considering how much I love seafood, that’s pretty surprising. Oh…err…umm…I mean, considering how much my FAMILY loves seafood ;). V-day dinner is ALL about them, right? 😉

So here’s the plan for the next two weeks. Happy Valentine’s Day to ya! 😀

Week 1

Valentine’s Day Sunday Dinner Special

  • Langostino Lobster Bisque, Crab Cakes, Roasted Red Potatoes, Portillo’s SaladRed Velvet Bread Pudding – I considered making broiled lobster tails, but YIKES were they expensive! Especially if you have to feed 8! But then I found a bag of frozen Langostino lobster at Costco and I got all giddy…ohhhh, the possibilities! I plan to use half the bag for the lobster bisque and save the rest for something yummy in later weeks.                        

Meatless Tuesday (Because Momma Don’t Cook on Mondays)

Thrifty Thursday

  • Creamy Chicken Quinoa and Broccoli Casserole – Broccoli was on sale at Pete’s again for just $.50/lb. I had to stock up and, consequently, dig up major recipes to use the stuff. So…if broccoli’s not on sale in your ‘hood, bear with me. 🙂

Sunday’s Fancy Fixin’s

  • Holy Yum Chicken, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Forbidden Rice – This chicken looks sooo dern tasty – and it’s sooo easy! Can’t wait to taste this.

Meatless Tuesday (Because Momma Don’t Cook on Mondays)

Thrifty Thursday

  • Zuppa Toscana w/Party Bread – With the price of bacon, this dinner is not really as cheap as I’d like, but when I find bacon on sale, I stock up and freeze it for later recipes like this. I’ll be using my stored bacon for this recipe. If you don’t eat bacon or it’s not on sale, omit it completely or just use bacon bits (cheap at Walmart).

Lunch Bunch

  • Pumpkin Corn Fritters – The kids loved these! They’re quick to make and even the kids can help.
  • Pizza Muffins (photo by Pillsbury)

    Pizza Cupcakes – I’m planning to change the recipe up a bit based on what my family likes, but what child or adult doesn’t like pizza? This could be a winner, plus double for freezer cooking!

For the Freezer

  •  Mini Pot Pies
  • Bacon and Egg Roll-ups – These look yummy. I always have to freezer cook for breakfast because my family goes through cereal and milk like water. I like having something homemade in the freezer so they’re guaranteed at least a few days of hot breakfast before heading off to school.

Desserts

  • Creamy Grape Dessert – Grapes were on sale at Pete’s ($.99/lb) and this looked easy enough. I had it once at a family gathering and it was yumalicious!
  • Tropical Rolled Spelt Cookies – I’ve had spelt flour in my pantry for a while waiting to try a good recipe. I made pancakes and they were just okay. I’m hoping these turn out much better. Can anything possibly go wrong with a cookie recipe?

Breakfast Bonus

  • Bacon Cinnamon Rolls – There is absolutely nothing right about this recipe, but I’m going to make them anyway LOL!
