I made MOST of what we had planned for last week – I kind of missed Saturday as I was recouping from my medical test fiasco. Only one thing added into this week – the rest is new. It’s almost time to do a freezer inventory to keep myself on track! It’s pretty full so we can eat for quiet some time out of it yet, LOL!
Here is how I do my meal planning.
1) I grab the calendar and see where we are for the week and what we are doing so I don’t plan a meal for a night we are at a friend’s party or working.
2) I grab the freezer list so I know what ** and *** items need to be used.
3) I look at the last 2 weeks so I don’t feed my family the same thing, week after week.
Here is my plan of attack:
Breakfast is usually the same:
French toast, fruit crepes, Breakfast Cookies, cold cereal* or oatmeal* with a piece of fresh fruit (apple, strawberries, grapes or banana) or homemade cereal bars as we have a LOT of cereal right now.
Lunch is either:
leftovers, peanut butter* & jelly sandwiches, quesidillas, or cold plate with sausage or diced chicken – cheese* – crackers* & fresh fruit or yogurt.
Monday – Beef Stew over biscuits (left over pot roast)
Tuesday – Fridge Clean Out!
Wednesday – Meatless Night: Grilled cheese with tomato soup
Thursday – Lasagna Rolls (didn’t do last week)
Friday –Homemade Macaroni & Cheese
Saturday –Chicken Enchiladas
Sunday – Frozen Pizza
I–> challenge you to grab your calendar, check your stockpile and create your menu for your family this week!
