Menu Planning Monday: Week of Feb. 12th & Personal Pan Pizzas

posted in: Simply Home | 6

Hello everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! I spend some time over the weekend planning out Valentine’s Day ideas, working out my priories, and making a detailed schedule so I can more intentionally map out my time (post on that to come later).


With my husband directing a show in March (i.e. rehearsals nearly every night), I’ve had to make some temporary changes to our menu plan. Most evenings for dinner it will either be a crockpot meal he can eat before he leaves (and before I get home) or leftovers. With everything else that’s gone on this weekend, I haven’t really planned out all the lunches this week.




Breakfast: Cold cereal with Homemade Granola

Dinner: leftover Pizza and salad with canned pears



Breakfast: Homemade Whole-Wheat Waffles

Dinner: Crockpot Lasagna



Breakfast: Loaded Scrambled Eggs

Lunch: Spanish Rice with corn

Dinner: at the Morsches’



Breakfast: Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal (awesome, easy recipe!)

Dinner: Crockpot Meat Loaf



Breakfast: Homemade English Muffins

Dinner: leftovers


Breakfast: Banana Bread made with some whole-wheat flour and cold cereal

Dinner: Chicken and Rice Soup with French bread



Breakfast: Smoothies

Lunch: Baked Potato with broccoli and cheese and side of fruit

– Top 1 baked potato with 1 tsp. butter, 1 c. broccoli, and 1/4 c. reduced-fat Cheddar cheese

Dinner: Stir-Fry challenge – make a stir fry meal from whatever we have in the pantry/freezer with salad


Favorite Meal from Last Week:

Personal Pan Pizzas using  Homemade Chapatis as the crust (we loved them so much last week, we had to have some more this week!


Personal Pan Pizzas

To make 8 homemade chapatis:

– 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 3/4 cup of warm water


Step 1dough

Combine salt and flour in a mixing bowl. Pour water in and mix.

Step 2

Knead the dough for 10 minutes, then form into a ball. Place in a bowl, covered with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.


Step 3

On a well-floured surface, divide the dough into 8 portions. Roll each portion in a ball, then us a rolling pin to roll each ball into a flat circle 5-6 inches across.

Step 4

Place a large skillet or griddle on medium heat. Place a chapatis on the skillet.

(Normally when just cooking chapatis, it will start to puff up. When it is done puffing, you will flip it to the other side to cook. They cook quickly; you will need to watch them so they don’t burn.)

For the pizzas, however, as soon as you place the chapatis on the skillet, add tomato sauce and whatever ingredients you want on your pizza!

    Your menu looks great!! I love the idea of personal pizzas. I usually make big ones and end up doing half-and-half – or quarters! 🙂

    Here’s my menu! I love making menus – makes my week so much easier.

    • haha – we are probably going to make them again. They are so quick and easy to put together (once the dough has risen a bit).

  3. Never thought to cook them in a pan! Great idea!
