Meal Plan Monday

Here's my meal plan for this week AND next week! I know it's late...I've been way too LAZY lately! I decided to make a plan for 2 weeks to help save some time and money. Time, because some of the things I make this week can be frozen for next week. Money, because I think making double of one dinner is sometimes cheaper than making 2 completely different dinners. Less waste.Personally I don't think making a meal plan for 2 weeks is that much more work than making a plan for one week. Most of the second week is duplicates.

Tuesday: Chili in the crockpot and corn bread(I'm making a double batch of Chili and freezing half)
Wednesday: Cinco De Mayo party-I'm bringing a layered bean dip and chips
Thursday: Chicken and tortellini salad(new recipe) and garlic bread
Friday: Meatball sandwiches, green salad and mozzarella sticks(I'll freeze half of the meatballs for next week)
Saturday: Chicken cacciatore(new recipe) and garlic bread(I'll freeze half of cacciatore for next week)
Sunday: Out to dinner for Mother's Day
Monday: Chicken fajitas
Tuesday: Chili that was frozen from previous week and cornbread
Wednesday: Beef and broccoli stir fry and rice
Thursday: Chicken tortellini salad and garlic bread
Friday: Meatball sandwiches, green salad and mozzarella sticks
Saturday: Chicken cacciatore and garlic bread
Sunday: Chicken fajitas

Does your family like eating the same thing 2 weeks in a row? My family would totally complain!! Or, I'm wondering if the second week of meals is actually for a week in the future and you are going to freeze the second batch.

Yes, for this particular week, the list shown is for two weeks in a row. I haven't meal planned in this way for a while, but it does save money. Currently, I am planning one week at a time. I have all of my meals (that I make somewhat regularly) printed out. I then let everyone pick out what they want for that week. I also add in some things that I'd like to try. It makes meal planning really easy!!
