Menu Planning can make a crazy week turn into a calm week with your family. Gather some ideas here at Hey Momma What’s For Supper #82
Hey Momma What’s For Supper #82 is designed for easy weekly supper planning with dinner ideas for your busy family.
Hi everyone! I am doing my best starting this week to move my menu plan post to the end of the week instead of Monday. This means that menu-planning ideas can be used for your week starting Sunday! My goal is Friday because picking up a few groceries on Saturday morning or afternoon sounds pretty doable. Monday are crazy busy here and I feel like the shift will be good for planning and prepping healthy menus for the week!

Of course, I missed the mark this week because we had a major water problem in the yard. I really should have taken a photo. But just think The Geysers of Yellowstone National Park.
The repairman comically called it a Leaky Teaky.
While waiting for the repairs to happen, the longest Monday of my life I worked and at break time enjoyed my new book.
The Southern Living Party COOKBOOK!
The Southern Living Party Cookbook: A Modern Guide to Gathering by Elizabeth Heiskel
Elizabeth also is the author of What Can I Bring, another cookbook lovers treasure. Heiskel is an Oxford, Mississippi caterer and lover of entertaining. The Southern Living Party Cookbook is for anyone who loves to party, host, gather, cook, or eat! It was like she was writing directly to all southern mamas.
The recipe I can’t wait to make, Hot Cheese Squares. A not so fancy, but surely look fancy canape that was in the original Southern Living Pary Cookbook printed on 2006. The recipe calls for cream cheese so I am guessing this came out around the time quick recipes start getting popular. However, Philadelphia Cream Cheese brand started picking up in popularity around 1880! So who knows how old the Hot Cheese Squares recipe is!
My favorite part of the book is the tablescapes. I enjoy creating tablescapes, much like my own mama. Here is the birthday tablescape I created for my husband in March. Birthday Tablescape
Now, let get to the meal plan!
MENU PLAN THIS WEEK
Yes, Taco Tuesday has been moved to Sunday because everywhere I go I see Cinco De Mayo and think to myself, gosh I love turkey tacos and why not have them on Sunday!
Ground Turkey Tacos with yummy ground turkey flavored with Ancho chili powder, tomato paste, ground cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. I make triple batches of this simple recipe to have on hand when I am crazy busy.
I serve the ground turkey taco mix with shredded cheddar, lettuce, pico de gallo, and my new yummy taco dressing! This is the recipe I used at the restaurant for a pizza. I am sharing the pizza recipe soon, it is a huge pizza and will feed 8 people!
We will also have lots of fruit cut up and sprinkled with chili powder and lime juice. I use fresh melon, jicama, and pineapple. If avocados are plentiful and the price is not to crazy I will also add this to a pretty tray.
Monday – Pulled Chicken BBQ Sandwiches
Slow Cooker Shredded BBQ Chicken Sandwiches with slaw and leftover fruit from Sunday.
Tuesday – Grill Day!
Our Sunday grill day has been bumped to Tuesday.
- Grilled Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
- Grilled Boneless Pork Loins Steaks
- Oven Roasted Corn on the Cob
- Southern Fried Cabbage and Onions
Wednesday – Leftovers
Leftovers! Hallelujah! Momma is singing the leftover for supper song!
Thursday – Three Cheers for Chili
Spicy Ground Turkey Chili with my favorite Southern Cornbread. Yum!
Friday- Dinner out! Yes, my husband spoils me with a date night every Friday. Sometimes we do a group family dinner out, which is great. However, we have a picky eater or two in the family. Date night allows this gal to go out and try new food!
Saturday – Homemade Pizza Night
I am cooking with my teen this weekend. Yes, teens are moody more unpredictable small adult types. I have found out one thing my boys have always been interested in, food. Even our young meat eater will rustle up some interest as long as it has meat or some kind of chewy bread. Well, folks, pizza has both!
I am using a simple recipe for the dough and just hoping for the best. When I learned baking it has always been by trial and error. I am not a huge fan of instructions. I have glanced online and pizza dough is generally not as time-consuming has homemade bread. I will give the results as soon as they are positive and edible! LOL
At the restaurant, we had a large pizza dough machine and a pizza guy. He made dough and pizza skins every single day for six hours. I am pretty hopeful that just my wish for one pizza skin for my family will not take more than an hour tops! Crossing my fingers!
