WooHoo don’t you love it when you find a recipe that you cannot only make ahead of time but also freeze and it cooks up and serves just like when it was freshly made? We have one of those recipes this week from our good friends over at Eat What We Eat and we think you are going to love it. You will also be blown away by the simple soups, crock pot items and tasty treats that your whole family will adore. Weekly Meal Plan 17 will not disappoint your taste buds or budget!

I grew up eating tuna cakes, made from canned tuna…they are awesome! I promise to post a recipe for them soon. In the mean time, check out these Fish Cakes! BONUS they can be made ahead and yes frozen. I am so excited to make these and put a batch in the freezer for lunches and quick week night meals!
Our very own Beef & Lentil Soup is perfect for a week night dinner. It is so comforting and soothing after a long day. Again, it can be made ahead and either stored in the fridge for a few days or frozen. Whenever I make soup I try to double the recipe and freeze the left overs in mason jars to be pulled out for lunches throughout the weeks.
Sometimes we just need to toss in a super simple pasta dish because here the young ones just love their noodles, and we usually have someone ‘carb loading’ for a race or football game. This has a great depth of flavor so it’s super pleasing for all taste buds. Want to add some protein to this Lemon Basil Pasta? How about a few grilled shrimp or chicken strips. This would also make a great last minute guest meal since here at least we always have these items on hand.
Pull out the crock pot for this one! I can’t decide if I want this as a simple weeknight meal or to come home to on Saturday afternoon after sitting at football all day? Either way this super budget friendly, soul soothing Cheesy Potato Soup will leave you warm from head to toe!
Who doesn’t love a meatball sub? Well, I’m sure there is someone but it’s not us. These Chicken Meatball Sliders are a perfect fun dinner. I will again make these meatballs ahead of time so all I have to do is heat them up on the day we have them. And yeah an extra batch will most likely be put into the freezer 🙂
Never sure exactly what to do for lunch? Tired of sandwiches and leftovers? Be sure to check out our lunch board on Pinterest…we even have one for those adorable little cherubs of yours. Find everything for your Kiddos Lunches – even for the pickiest ones!
Our kids love eggs in the morning…but I don’t always feel like making them. We have done similar little egg cups like this and they are always a hit. We have even frozen them (seems to be a theme this week) and the kids microwave them and off they go. 100% worth the time to make ahead of time. These Egg Cups are full of veggies and flavor!
Be sure to Pin this image for later!

I love that you included the Egg Cups. I was going to search out a recipe & here they are. I mentioned these to my husband the other day for when we fix our ‘baking date’.
So glad you like that Penny, let us know how they turned out for you! Enjoy!
