Menu Plan for a New Fridge!

I think it is going to be one of those weeks where we clear out what we have.  Things are (mostly) not over-flowing but I want to start with a blank slate because…We got a NEW (to us) REFRIGERATOR!  I am super excited about it.  My in-laws bought a new fridge and gifted us their old one. 

New to Us refrigerator.

After my sad attempts to organize our old refrigerator, I am thrilled to have a completely new design to plan out not to mention more freezer space!  My perfect plan did not involve throwing all the contents of the old refrigerator into this one in a mad dash but perfect plans never seem to go perfectly, do they?  I want to try to use up as many odds and ends as I can so I can have mostly empty shelves when I start setting things up the way I want.  Therefore, our menu plan revolves around cleaning out some items that have been hidden in the old refrigerator/freezer.  It also might be worth noting that our weather this week is supposed to be very warm until week-end. 


Hot dogs, French fries, jicama, and broccoli (J will eat a grilled cheese maybe?)  This was a special request and since I have a 4pm meeting, quick & easy works for me!

I also already had these in the freezer!


Sweet & Spicy bacon wrapped chicken (carried over from last week) and baked potatoes.  G has clarinet lessons


Lasagna.  Teacher Conference for J and possibly G

My family prefers this to homemade (I LIKE my homemade lasagna) so another easy dinner night.


 Leftovers!  The boys get out of school early due to teacher conferences and have soccer practice.  Maybe I’ll make a dessert. 


Steak Soup, salad, and baked potatoes.  The boys will be out of school today and I’m hoping the soup can simply go in the crock pot until we are ready for it.  G doesn’t like soup at all and J is probably going to not like it (although you never know with that one!) so I know they will both be eating something else but I am not sure what…

What is on your menu plan this week?  If you need ideas, be sure to check out Menu Plan Monday over at for lots inspiration!

    That sure is VERY exciting to have a new refrigerator! It’s always my mission to have an empty refrigerator at the end of the week so that when I go grocery shopping, I can stock it up with new things. Don’t always succeed, but it sure feels good to re-stock with new groceries 🙂
    I’m making a huge pot of soup tonight that will hopefully last us a few nights 🙂
    Have a great week!

    Your frig looks a lot like mine. Our ice maker does not work anymore, though. George also only wants the Johnsonville turkey sausages. We call them brats. AND Troy prefers the Stouffers lasaugna too. We even bake it along with bread and salad for company.

      I have to admit the Stouffers lasagna is pretty good. It’s been one of the traditional company dinners on my husband’s side of the family for as long as I can remember 🙂
