Our No Eating Out Menu Plan

by Katie on November 10, 2013

I’m going to let you in on a little secret!

We eat out too much!

I know…I have a cooking blog…you probably imagine me in an apron cooking up a storm with my heels and pearls on each night.  Okay, that’s probably taking it a little too far?!?

I do cook a lot. But then there are those time when I feel too busy to cook or don’t know how late Daniel will be home or we have to run right after dinner time…and we grab something because it’s easy.

And I’m kind of tired of it. Eating gluten free limits the choices drastically and it gets boring and expensive to eat out.  I’m tired of baked potatoes and salads.  So, we are bringing it back home!

We will be cooking at home every day this week, breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

And to save time and dummy proof this menu I’ve made 3 of them crock pot meals!!  If you can’t find time to throw things in a crock pot…you may have issues. :)

If you want to see pics of some of our meals this week you can catch me on Instagram. I’m seriously slow to the Instagram craze and just signed up!!

How do you feel about eating out? Is it a treat or a convenience for you?

Breakfast:
Spinach & Sausage Egg Scramble or Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal (my new fave – it’s like a healthy no bake cookie!)

Lunch:
Turkey and Cheese Roll Ups, Chips, and Fruit or Leftovers

Dinners:
Monday- Ham Fried Rice
Tuesday- Pesto Ranch Crock Pot Chicken Thighs, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans
Wednesday- Buffalo Chicken Soup with Grilled Cheese (GF bread)
Thursday-  Ranch Chicken Tacos (Crock Pot) with Easy Mexican Rice
Friday- Leftovers
Saturday- Meatloaf Supreme (GF oats instead of bread crumbs), Mashed Potatoes, and Peas
Sunday- Crock Pot Pepper Steak over Brown Rice

I hear you on being so busy sometimes! I, too, love to cook and bake. Going back to work full time really interferes with that at times when the evenings are busy too! Good for you for making an effort to eat ‘in’ all week.

Oh, Beth, I know how hard it can be to come home from work when it’s already dinner time and have to rush around here and there. Good luck with your going back to full time work :)
