Weekly Menu Plan

We have SO MUCH food in our pantry and freezer right now – 7 deer from my husband’s hunting season efforts, plus all kinds of foodie christmas gifts and leftovers. We will be working on eating it up over the next few weeks especially (although the venison will take the whole year ;)). Also, I got an Instant Pot for Christmas! So feel free to hit me up with your favorite recipes.


Everyone is responsible for making/cleaning up their own breakfasts. Choices include:

Oatmeal, Toast, Fried/Scrambled/Boiled Eggs, Veggie Omelets, Cereal, Fruit, Cottage Cheese, Smoothies


Deli Meat/Cheese Sandwiches, Apples, Cucumbers x 2

Pretzels and Peanut Butter, Cheese Sticks, Grapes

Baked Potatoes with Shredded Cheese/Cottage Cheese, Grapes Mini Peppers

Leftovers x 3


Pancakes, Eggs, Turkey Bacon, Roasted Parmesan Broccoli (breakfast for dinner)

Instant Pot Pot Roast with Potatoes and Carrots (I’ll use a Venison Roast and my variation of this), Tossed Salad

Homemade Pepperoni Pizza, Steamed Mixed Vegetables, Kale Craisin Salad

Taco Salad (using ground venison), Spanish Rice, Oranges

Chili with Shredded Cheese, Homemade Cornbread, Raw Carrots/Ranch Dip

Date Night Out (Kids eat Mac and Cheese at home)

    Would love to see your venison recipe ideas…

    • Melissa Bynum says:

      I tried this recipe with venison and it was delicious!!!!

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      Honestly, I don’t have any amazing recipes that are specific to venison. I use it interchangeably in recipes calling for beef. If it’s something like meatloaf, spaghetti or hamburgers, I mix ground venison with ground beef/turkey. If it’s heavily seasoned meat (like chili or tacos), I use straight ground venison. For pot roasts, I always make sure to add fat as venison is a very lean meat, and can be dry if not cooked the right way. Also, in general, the older a deer is, the more “gamey” it tastes.

    Are your aldi grocery list prices for this next week Jan. 12-18? I saw the date you posted was the 11th. So I wasn’t sure if it was last weeks or this week. Love your blog and emails. Thanks.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      Our ads run Wednesday-Tuesday. My posts are usually on Saturday morning, and they involve the current week’s sales/prices. So the prices are still good through the following Tuesday. Hopefully that makes sense!
