Menu Plan Monday plus Recipes!

Written by: Kalisha

I wanted to share the recipes for some of the meals I made last week–so here they are. All of them are quick, easy and most important cheap! You can always add your own flare and substitute ground turkey or chicken for the beef and whatever else.

Chili Mac

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can tomatoes (I used fire roasted diced tomatoes)
  • macaroni noodles

Brown ground beef and onions until meat is cooked and onions until meat is cooked and onions are tender. Stir in tomatoes and macaroni; cover and simmer until macaroni is tender, about 10 minutes. Season to taste.


Easy Clam Chowder

  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 2 T. flour
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 can of diced clams, drained

Cook potatoes and celery in salted boiling water until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Drain and mash. In separate saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour. Add milk gradually, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in mashed potatoes and celery and clams; heat through.


Easiest Ever Pizza

  • 1 c. flour
  • 1t. salt
  • 1/8 t. pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 c. milk
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 4 oz. diced mushrooms
  • 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 2 c. grated cheese
  • 1/2 t. oregano

In large mizing bowl, combine flour, salt, pepper, eggs, and milk; beat until smooth and pour into a large pie plate or pizza pan. Make sure batter covers the bottom of the pan. Brown ground beef; drain well and sprinkle over crust batter. Sprinkle on mushrooms, pour on tomato sauce, and sprinkle cheese and oregano over the pizza. Bake at 425 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until bubbling and cheese melted.

This was so easy! I used my skillet because I didn’t have a big enough pie plate. I think it would be good to grease your pan with a little butter or cooking spray before you add the batter. Other than that this was a tasty and easy recipe.



  • Breakfast Apple Pie
  • Strawberry Oatmeal
  • Banana Pancakes and bacon
  • Eggs and ham with fruit
  • Granola yogurt fruit parfait


  • PB and J with veggie sticks and ranch
  • Homemade chicken noodle soup
  • Grilled Cheese and tater tots
  • Bean and cheese burrito with rice
  • Leftovers


  • Spaghetti and meatballs with zucchini
  • Mushroom Soup Casserole
  • Chicken Sandwiches with a side of broccoli
  • Macaroni and cheese with leftover chicken
  • Chili cheese dogs and baked french fries
