2 Week Meal Plan (March 1-15)

by Janell on March 1, 2013

I try to avoid going to the grocery store because I know I will probably buy more than I need. So I like to make a meal plan for 2 weeks. Then I just need to run into the store to get bread, milk, and produce. These recipes are quick, easy, and budget friendly. I don’t plan what we are having each night, I just have a list of 15 dinners and we can pick each morning.

15 Dinners

Beef & Broccoli with brown rice (maybe yummy yummy sauce)

Chicken Cacciatore


Lazy Lasagna

Crock pot Chicken & Dumplings

Chicken Parmesan

Southwest Chicken

Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken (highly rated by my Facebook fans)

Skillet Pork Chops with gravy and potatoes (new recipe)
Ribs in the Crock Pot, french fries, broccoli (new recipe)
Fajitas on the grill with peppers and onions
Salmon with twice baked potatoes and zucchini
Fettuccine Alfredo with salad
Brown Sugar & Garlic Chicken (new recipe)
Crock Pot Apple Pork Chops (new recipe)
Creamy Italian chicken over pasta (new recipe)

My family is really good about trying new recipes. I love to share but we have to test them first! What’s your favorite dinner recipe? I have 3 little kids so I need my dinner plan to be as easy as possible! Leave a comment with your favorite recipe.

I’ve started a meal planning board on Pinterest. I will do my best to Pin my plans on this board. If you don’t have a Pinterest account – send me your email so I can invite you. You will love it!

Lazy Lasagna

by Janell on February 28, 2013



I made this dinner with a bunch of leftovers I had in the fridge.  I have always wanted to find a recipe that was creamy and cheesy but easy. This is the best combination of all the flavors. I was really happy that I used up ingredients I already had in the refrigerator. It’s definitely a frugal meal! Best of all it’s really quick! A lot faster than lasagna and you don’t have to turn on the oven.

Lazy Lasagna
Printable version

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 26 oz Spaghetti Sauce
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, divided
  • About 8 oz of cooked spaghetti (or any other pasta would work)
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a large skillet, add a little oil and saute the garlic until soft. Add the ground beef and cook until it’s cooked. Drain off grease.
  2. Add spaghetti sauce. When it is almost boiling add the ricotta cheese and ¾ cup of mozzarella cheese.
  3. When the mixture is almost boiling, add the cooked spaghetti.
  4. Sprinkle  the rest of the mozzarella cheese on top.
  5. Cover and heat until heated all the way through.
  6. Serve with a salad and bread.

You don’t want to add too much pasta or it will become dry. If you are using leftover pasta just add a little at a time until it the right consistency.
