8/24/14 Weekly Meal Plan + Goals

Well, Thursday of this week is my “due date.” I’m always a little reluctant to use that term since the baby will come whenever she’s ready, but considering all three of our girls have arrived within 2-4 days of my due date, I’m thinking Baby A will be here this week.

The meals we have this week will all be simple to fix because, well, honestly, my energy is limited and I’m feeling a little like I did in my first trimester…queasy and nauseous. We may even eat a few freezer meals if I get desperate 🙂

Here’s a glimpse of what I’m thinking we’ll be eating this week, but of course it’s all subject to change depending on Baby.

Our Weekly Meal Plan


Slow Cooker Meatball Subs


Creamy Spinach Tomato Tortellini w/ garlic bread & steamed broccoli


Grilled Fish Tacos w/ Rubios Sauce


Vegetarian Taco Salad (using refried beans & guacamole)


Chicken-Mushroom Supreme over whole wheat egg noodles with green beans


Pepperoni Pizza Pullapart Bread



If you aren’t already, follow my Menu Plan board on Pinterest where you’ll find all these and over 400 other recipes!

Goals for the Week


1. Finish packing hospital bag (yes, I should’ve already done this 🙂

2. Rest & relax as much as possible.

3. Possibly finish Charlotte’s Web. (We’re lovin’ it!)

4. Continue rereading my favorite natural childbirth books and, if I have the energy, write a post about them.

5. Continue meditating on my scripture cards, which I printed on card stock and laminated for more durability.

What’s on your meal plan for the week?

Do you have a favorite childbirth book?

  1. I had trouble getting to the end of the post cause I had to keep stopping to look up recipes! YUM

    • Helene, that’s how I feel every time I get on Pinterest! So many yummy looking recipes and so little time to try them all out.

  2. Hi Keri, Thanks for sharing the meal menu… The taco salad looks tasty this week 🙂 Also, our favorite child birth books are the Bradley Method books on natural childbirth.

    P.S. Charlotte’s Web was one of our first read alouds… I cry fondly when I think of that book.

    • You’re welcome. Thanks for hosting the link-up! I love it. My 5-year-old cried so hard at the end of Charlotte’s Web that I almost worried I’d traumatized her, but we decided to read a happier book.

      By the way, I have really enjoyed your unit studies. I just found them recently on your site and have started pinning them to do with our girls. I’ve been reluctant to try unit studies in the past because they seemed like a lot of work, but you’ve taken most of that work out of it for us, so I’m thinking we’ll give it them a try 🙂 Thank you!
