Menu Plan- January 9th-15th

The weather forecast for this week is cold. And by cold I mean they are forecasting single digits and several days where we will not be out of the twenties.

Depending on where you live, that may or may not be that cold, but for Oklahoma it is cold. It is the first really cold weather that we have had this winter, so I can not complain too much.

However, when I see a forecast that looks like the one this week, I automatically think of soup. Soup is just made for a cold winter’s day, so I am planning several meals with soup this week.

There is still time to download the free Quick and Easy Dinners ebook that I am offering this month for subscribers. If you are looking for some new dinner ideas this ebook is perfect.

Here is this week’s plan.


chicken, rice, and spinach

Homemade Panera potato soup

pork and potatoes

spinach enchiladas

Asian noodle soup

breakfast for dinner

Homemade Panera tomato soup ( recipe coming Tuesday)

  1. soups are perfect for the cold! We’ll be below zero, yet again, this week. At least the sun should be out — that always makes it seem warmer 🙂

  2. So I take it you won’t be grilling outdoors this week? 😉 Your menu plan looks full of comforting and warm foods!

  3. I will have to try the potato soup….we love Panera too!

  4. I agree with SnoWhite – Soups are great for the cold!I’m making soup today with the snow we have had. 🙂 YUM! Sooo comforting!!

  5. Your Pork and Potatoes and your menu for the week look so good. I would love to have you visit Full Plate Thursday. Thank you for sharing and you have a great week!

  6. Great menu plan and how you’ve included photos of some of the dishes. Stay warm!

  7. I agree- soup is on the menu! We just left warm Texas to return to not so warm (or even light!) Scotland, so comfort food is what we need. 🙂 I do love Asian noodle soup- yum!

  8. I have potato soup on my menu this week also. The spinach enchiladas look great! I will definitely have to try them sometime.
