Free Weekly Meal Plan with Printable Grocery List – 4/13

Free Weekly Meal Plan with Printable List

The $5 Dinners Weekly Meal Plan with Printable Grocery List

Every week I will post 5 links to archived recipes, plus an additional 1 or 2 recipes for breakfast, snacks or batch cooking recipes.  You can click through to see the original recipe and print that recipe if you like. (Or go green and just come back to this post to get to the recipe.)

There are just some weeks when you don’t feel like meal planning…because the schedule is so beyond overwhelming and life keeps throwing curveballs at you. But PLEASE make a meal plan. Here’s what happened to us last week. 

At the beginning of last week, I looked at the schedule and wanted to cry. We had several times when I had to ‘kid juggle’ beyond the normal times in the week when I have to do that and our babysitter is here. But I made a meal plan and boy, oh boy, am I glad I had that at least written out. I planned several slow cooker meals because we had 3 afternoons when we had appointments and swim lessons.

Both of my older 2 boys were born with Chiari 1 Malformations. They are both stable and must be checked every 2 years with an MRI to make sure they aren’t causing trouble that we can’t see in external symtpoms. Both boys were scheduled for their MRIs on Tuesday, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. So I started the slow cooker on Tuesday morning, knowing it would be a long day of driving back and forth across down, deliver different kids to different friends who helped me out. Ryan (almost 9) and I arrived at the hospital in the morning, got checked in, made it into the MRI machine room to discover that they didn’t have the ‘movie goggles’ and that he would have to lay there for over an hour in the tube with nothing (but looking at me through the mirror) to distract him. (HUGE FAIL….what children’s hospital doesn’t have these googles?!?!?)

He managed to make it through with only having to stop once. And I almost exploded with pride, watching my child do a very difficult thing, under very difficult circumstances.

Later in the afternoon it was Charlie’s turn and he made it half way through the scans before breaking down. I had originally opted them both out of being sedated because at our old hospital in Cincinnati they had the movie goggles and Ryan used them without needed sedation as young as 5. Silly me for not asking and assuming that they would have them here.

I rescheduled Charlie’s part 2 scan with sedation for Friday afternoon, shifted the meal plan slightly so we could have another slow cooker meal on Friday. And of course, he spiked a fever overnight Thursday-Friday and ended up having strep throat. MRI rescheduled again. And I spent the morning shuffling from pediatrician to pharmacy, all while grateful that dinner is taking care of itself. This MRI has since been rescheduled for this coming week so we can get the results at the end of the week.

More slow cooker meals on this week’s menu for us :) But as you can see, it was a week of many crazy moments of uncertainty and frustration and had I had that ‘what’s for dinner’ thought running around in my head all the while, I might have ended up in the looney bin. ;)

And now, some recipe ideas and meals for you to enjoy!
