Grocery List

Almost all of the meals we make at home also include salad. If you want to have salad as well, don’t forget to include lettuce, carrots, broccoli, etc. on your list.

Monday: 2 chicken breasts, 1/2 c Dijon mustard, 1/2 c honey, 1/2 lemon, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp salt, crushed red pepper, 1/2 lb bacon, cheddar cheese, buns

Tuesday: 2 steaks (your choice of cut), compound butter, sauteed mushrooms (for serving)

Wednesday: 1 lb ground beef, 4-6 slices of bacon, blue cheese, buns, salt, pepper, Lawry’s Seasoned Salt

Thursday: Lettuce, carrots, green onions, crispy or grilled chicken, Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wing Sauce, Blue Cheese crumbles, and blue cheese dressing

Friday: Curly’s Ribs – We can always find these at our local Costco. If you follow the link to their website you can find other places where they are available as well. They are around $13 per rack of ribs, they come pre-cooked, in sauce, and all you have to do is cook them until heated throughout. And they are amazing!!!!

Saturday: Eat Out

Sunday: 2-3 lb pork loin, 32 oz chicken broth, water, 4-5 potatoes, 4-5 carrots, onion, salt, pepper, and garlic salt

Bacon Blue Cheese Burgers:

Season ground beef with salt, pepper, and Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. Shape beef into patties and grill until cooked through. Sometimes we cook our bacon on the grill also, but you really have to watch it so it doesn’t burn. Assemble the burgers by layering on bacon and lots of crumbled blue cheese.

Buffalo Chicken Salad:

This is just a salad, with all the toppings that you love, plus chicken that has been tossed in the Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wing Sauce, and topped with Blue Cheese crumbles and dressing. Sometimes we buy precooked, breaded chicken fingers and other times we grill our own chicken. Depends on how healthy we want to be.


Like I mentioned above, Curly’s Ribs come pre-cooked and in sauce, so all you have to do is warm them up basically. It’s too easy! We line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, to prevent a huge mess at the end, and place them in the oven or on the grill until they are warm throughout (about 20-25 minutes).

Pork Roast:

In a roaster, season both sides of the pork with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Pour in chicken broth. Peel and cut your potatoes, carrots, and the onion, and place them around the pork. Add enough water so the liquid covers most of the potatoes and comes about half way up the pork loin. Cover and cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 2-3 hours or until cooked through.

I hope you enjoy some of the meals from this week’s meal plan. Of course, feel free to change it up to fit your needs, or just use it to get inspired about dinner and try a new recipe or two.
