requests to continue doing this so this will now be a Sunday thing!Monday: Roasted Pumpkin Sage Soup (Meatless Monday!)

Wednesday: Crock Pot Balsamic Roast Pork (popular on Skinnytaste!)
Thursday: Lasagna Soup (SOOO good)
Sunday: Birthday party, eating out!
Happy cooking!

  1. Gina, You should think about an iPhone app. recipes at one touch, grocery list…..

  2. I just started using your meal plan last week and I have to say it has been a miracle worker for me! My whole family loves the meals. This never happens! I usually get 50% satisfaction rate. These meals are all such delicious crowd pleaders. Even my non-eating 9-yr-old said of your Crock Pot Balsamic Pork Roast, "This is the best meal of my life!" It doesn't get any better than that. I only wish that all of the recipes could be found in your cookbook and that more side dish suggestions were made. But in a big believer. Thank you!

  3. oh gosh. finding these meal plans has just made my whole week. thank you SO much for doing this. this is a huge time saver for me and making meal planning so so much easier.

  4. Loving the meal planner book – the weekly goal setting space is a real help in keeping on track. I've already made the easy garden tomato sauce – it's a delicious change from the store-bought and is currently residing in the freezer for future meals, part of it already having been used with spicy Italian sausage for tonight's dinner. Looking forward to trying each and every one of the recipes as they pop up!

  5. Such a great idea to have it in a book! I just looked at your lasagna soup recipe and it sounds amazing! I have made your oven fried pork chops many times before – a definitely favorite in our household.

  6. Love your new idea of sharing your own meal planning system. I'm glad you were able to factor this in to your routine and help make many many….. of us all so happy

  7. Love this post! I've made three of the recipes this week. Tonight was the Lasagna Soup. BEST soup ever. Thanks so much for your blog!!!

  8. Thank you so much for your support of JDRF!

  9. I tried all your recipes last week and love them!!! Sooooo excited to try these and have to get the meal planner for me and as Christmas gifts for my mom and sister in laws.Thanks !!!

  10. So glad you are sharing your weekly menu plan! Thank you! Please continue to do so 🙂

  11. This is SUCH a good idea! I love this! I've been trying to meal plan myself but can just never decide what to do. Thanks for sharing your meal plans – can always trust your recipes too!

  12. This is great, but it surprises me how so many folks cook everyday! I really don't think I could do this! When I come home from work, I barely have enough time to work out, shower and eat. So I do a lot of cooking and food prep on Sundays, and try to cook only once during the week (if necessary). However, this might be easier for me since I'm just cooking for my husband and me. I like how you're posting your meals for the week though, it gives me inspiration on what to make on Sundays since basically all my cooking is based off this site/your cookbook!

  13. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!

  14. So glad you are sharing your weekly menu plan! Thank you. 🙂

  15. Love the meal plan! Thank you so much for sharing:)

  16. Thank you for doing a diabetes walk- my 6-year-old is a type 1 diabetic. 🙂

  17. great and yummy collection for this week,

  18. Lasagna Soup — I will definitely be adding that to my meal plan!


  19. That's great, I love planning ahead, because in the end, it save so much time!

  20. This is a wonderful idea and I would love to give it a try. I have one question though..would it be possible if you could post this on Saturday so that we could shop on Sunday to be ready for Monday's supper? I work part time and take care of my 2 kids in between that time so there is not a lot of time on a weekday to get to the grocery store…and I dislike going there after 9pm…LOL.

    Thank you so much. Melody

  21. So excited to get my meal planner! I love that you are sharing yours! Your lasagna soup is to die for!

  22. Hi, do you make side dishes too?

  23. Does your planner have the recipes?

  24. thank you for doing this!!

  25. I Love, Love, Love that you are doing this! With a family of 6 this is a GREAT help!

  26. I'm glad you started doing this. I've struggled so much in this area. I've been following you for quite sometime now. Do I go grocery all at once for the entire week? And how do you prepare for each day?

  27. I have followed you for quite sometime now. I'm so excited that you are doing thus weekly meal planning. I'm been trying to do this on my own but couldn't succeed. So I am supposed to go shopping for everything all at once.

  28. The meal planner looks great. I like to plan my meals ahead. It really reduces the need for last-minute dashes to the supermarket.

  29. Thank you, thank you, thank you for starting these weekly meal plans. And if you included a grocery list, I would love you even more. I am a new mom and figuring out a newborn is rough so not having to figure out what to make for dinner is such a gift!!! Thanks again!!

  30. Love the meal planning, but really love the diabetes walk in there!! (signed, a type one mom!)

  31. Any chance you could also provide a grocery shopping list? Love that you are going to provide these meal plans weekly!

  32. Ha! I planned for the Balsamic Pork Roast and BBQ Chicken Chili this week as well. I've made the pork roast many times and love it. The BBQ Chicken Chili will be new for us this week..

    Love your recipes!

  33. Great! Just received your book in the mail yesterday. I was really surprised how big it is, wow! Great stuff in there. Already made the pumkin vanilla glazed scones today and I love, love, love them. Since we don´t seem to have canned pumpkin in germany, I made it from fresh pumpkin that I baked in the oven. Also had to make the pumpkin spice myself. The pumpkin leftovers were used for pumpkin carrot soup with ginger and cocomilk, yummy 🙂 First time I actually feel like I could make it to goal weight, yay!

  34. Oh I forgot about the lasagna soup! I love this post idea for just that reason.
