First, let me start by saying it is HARD to keep the meal planning updated here! But, I figure if I’m cooking that’s better than blogging about cooking, right? And the cooking is going well. We’re really enjoying the variety in meals and the experience of shopping weekly and eating as a family at the table nightly.

To catch us up, here are the lists from Weeks 1 & 2 along with new lists from Weeks 3 & 4. Remember the Team Schoegler rating system is out of a possible four thumbs up since there are four members of our Team. :)

Week 1

Week 2

Week 3

  • Pesto Stuffed Shells – Score: 3 out of 4 – Pretty average pasta dish. But, the recipe goes so far as to tell you the cost to prepare the meal!
  • Stuffed Green Peppers with Parmesan Knots – Score: 3 out of 4
  • Lasagna Style Baked Ziti – Score 4+ out of 4 – Who would think of spinach in lasagna? Not me! And my kids loved it!
  • Grilled Bruschetta Chicken – Score: see week 1. We loved it so much, we repeated!
  • Not-So-Sloppy Joes – Score: see week 1. Another repeat!

Weeks 4 and 5 (We ate out more during Week 4 so here are more than enough recipes for one week or those silly months with a Week 5)

With this list and your own family favorites, you now have a full MONTH of family-friendly recipes. And so do I! How cool is that?

Have you been doing any meal planning? Have a great recipe to share?

I’m working on a post about a few of the tools I’ve discovered that make finding recipes, writing grocery lists, cutting coupons and keeping it all organized just a bit easier. Stay tuned!
