Deciding on Dinner Meal Planning Busy Family Edition November 11-17

In order to help us stay accountable, my friend Kim and I have decided to start sharing our menu plans with you. Hers is going to be more healthy lifestyle: mostly grain and gluten free and she’s currently doing a 21 day sugar detox. (AKA Paleo Edition) Mine is whatever I can handle cooking as I get more and more pregnant! (AKA Busy Family Edition)  🙂



  • Ham & Cheese Paninis
  • Green salad



  • Chicken Burritos
  • Spanish Rice and Refried Beans


  • Sweet & Sour Meatballs
  • Rice Noodles and Peanut Sauce
  • Green salad



  • Creamy Herb Pork Chops
  • Rice a Roni
  • Green beans


  • Baptism- not cooking

If you’re looking for something healthier, check out Kim’s Paleo edition. I may grab a few ideas from her for my menu plan in a few weeks!

About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a “baby “chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she’s still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She’s since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.


  1. I love this! But… what do you do for breakfast and lunch? I have dinner down, but I am TERRIBLE about planning lunch – so I often end up with something not healthy or going out 🙁

  6. I love that you are putting your meal planning out there. I go in spurts where I do great at meal planning and then I do awful. The weeks that I do awful we eat out a lot. Your meals look yummy!
