Weekly Menu Plan

This week is all about chicken and using what I have on hand.  I’ve got a freezer full of chicken (bought on sale) that I’m trying to use up.  I still have lots of work to do on slashing our weekly grocery bills.  I spent $140 today on what seemed to be a shorter than usual list, and I didn’t buy any meat.  Frustrating. I think one of the big problems is that I wind up buying lots of stuff (processed, unfortunately) for The Littlest Apple in the hopes that he will eat some of it.  He never eats what we’re eating, and I never thought I’d be the mom who cooked separate for her kids.  I’ve got a post in the works on our food battles with The Littlest Apple…but for now, here’s the plan for this week (for the grownups):


Fresh fruit

Greek Yogurt with Pumpkin Spice Granola

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal


Lots of leftovers!


Sunday: Chicken Satay Skewers with Peanut Sauce, Basmati Rice, Salad

Monday: dinner with my parents

Tuesday: Shredded Chicken Taquitos, Refried Beans, Salad

Wednesday: Chili, Cornbread

Thursday: Greek Chicken, Spinach, Bread

Friday: Spicy Stir Fried Chicken & Kale with Peanuts

Saturday: Dine Out or Leftovers


Homemade bread

Apple Fritters

Pumpkin Bars

    I am very interested in your battles actually. We have a 27 month old who is super picky as well. I stumbled upon your blog from the 1+1+1=1 website. It helps to hear from other parents who are the same position. My husband and I love food and I love to cook…and my son refuses to try anything new. He has sensory issues – refuses to even let his hand touch an unfamiliar food. I feel like I am constantly ‘wasting’ food trying to find gateway ‘new’ foods that he will like. I can probably count on my fingers the things that he will eat consistently. We have tried tough love, which our ped assured us would work. Well…our son must be one of the few who will starve himself before he eats something he doesn’t want. Looking forward to your post….

  2. The granola looks great. I’m in the mood for pumpkin and will try this. Thanks.
