Weekly Menu Planning Sunday - January Dinner Menu Ideas

January Menu Plan Ideas - Week One
I am committing to more home cooked meals with a weekly menu planning post on Sundays on the blog. I figure if I get it in writing it will inspire me and you to make more homemade from scratch meals. Busyness cannot get in the way of healthier meals. I will list the menu with links to the recipes if I have them so you can save them if you are inspired to make a recipe yourself.

I have a new large crock pot my daughter gave me to replace the one that broke so I will be using it a lot this week.

Crock Pot Chicken and Rice

Easy Asian Noodle Salad

Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup (Recipe coming very soon) My favorite new soup to make

Crock Pot Supper in a Dish ( a family favorite)

Homemade Meatballs and Spaghetti (making extra to freeze as well)

The other two nights we will be eating elsewhere. One night at my in laws and another night out with my hubby.

Here is week two of January Menu Planning Ideas.


  1. I am loving this idea! I always feel like I make the same old things all the time and I never feel inspired. I like using the crock pot too. If I can pick up 2 new meal ideas here each week I'd be thrilled.

  2. Same here. Sounds great for 2016 inspiration

  3. Same here. Sounds great for 2016 inspiration

  4. I'm making meatballs this week, too; most likely, tomorrow. I found a new recipe where it's a combination of ground beef and pork and they also have ricotta cheese in them. It says they're good served over cheesy polenta, so I'm going to make that, too.
