Weekly Meal Plan February 1-5

A little boy in my class came running up to me first thing yesterday morning with a big smile on his face.

“Mrs. Skinner, do you and Mr. Skinner like Starbucks?”

“Yes we do, why?” I asked curiously.

Beaming he handed me this:

“It’s a free coffee Mrs. Skinner, you and Mr. Skinner can each have one.”

“Oh thank you so much” I gushed.

I couldn’t break it to him that it wasn’t really a free coffee…he was so proud and excited to give it me.

Sometimes kids are so sweet…

As I was looking at recipes this week and putting together our meal plan, I saw a distinctly Asian flare to my choices…I hope you like it too!

MondayLettuce Wraps
TuesdayChickpea Salad Sandwiches
WednesdayTeriyaki Meatball Stirfry
ThursdayKorean Beef and Rice
FridayFrozen Pizza

Grocery List:

  • ground turkey
  • red pepper x 2
  • green onion
  • onion
  • minced garlic
  • hoisin sauce
  • soy sauce
  • ground ginger
  • rice
  • iceberg lettuce
  • 2 cans chickpeas
  • celery
  • pickles
  • mayonnaise
  • mustard
  • dill
  • lemon juice
  • bread
  • ground pork
  • egg
  • breadcrumbs
  • brown sugar
  • sesame oil
  • rice wine vinegar
  • stir fry veggies (I went for frozen ones since fresh veg is so expensive right now)
  • red pepper flakes
  • ground beef


We haven’t had lettuce wraps in a while, and I was completely prepared to change the recipe if the price of lettuce had skyrocketed (like all the other produce out there). Luckily, iceberg lettuce was still reasonably priced at $1.98!



Our meatless meal this week is an old favorite…chickpea salad sandwiches. I will most likely serve this with some cut up veggies or maybe even a salad.

Chickpea Salad Sandwiches


I love a good, crispy meatball! These definitely do not disappoint…



To round out our Asian themed week, I wanted to try this meal. I assume the flavors will be similar to our other teriyaki, hoisin sauced meals, so hopefully we aren’t too sick of them by Thursday, Maybe to change it up, I will serve this over noodles instead of rice.
