Menu Monday-What Are You Eating this Week?

Here I am on our first day of the 100 Day Life Challenge and in order to save time during the week I am menu planning. As my days are not always predictable I am not planning specific meals on specific days. The idea is to write down a list of meals and plan the night before. Keep in mind that my kids eat lunch at school so lunches during the week are predominantly what I pack for hubby and what I grab at home.

-muffins(from box muffin mix)
-toaster strudel/toast
-bagels and cream cheese
-eggs and bacon
-homemade biscuits with sausage or bacon
-grits and fresh fruit
-homemade cinnamon rolls and fresh fruit

sandwiches and chips or fruit
corn dogs and sweet potato fries
homemade hamburgers, fries

-roast, potatoes, carrots, green beans, homemade rolls
-meatloaf, steamed veggies, baked potato, homemade bread
-spinach lasagna rolls, garlic cheese bread
-enchiladas, mexican rice, seasoned black beans
-thai pork stir fry with veggies and rice
-leftover buffet
-family movie night themed dinner (stay tuned for specifics)

While some of this stuff is homemade, the vegetables are normally canned or frozen and take no more action than to heat them up. If you have never made homemade bread I highly recommend it. Just follow the recipe and plan on making it in the morning for dinner that night. The hands-on part is not what takes so much time, it is the in-between allowing it to rise that takes a while.

  1. The spinach lasagne rolls sound interesting. I'm impressed you have all your lunches and breakfasts on here too. Everyone is on their own for those meals in my house (except for the toddler of course). Except for me and the toddler, no one is here for lunch and they don't want breakfast.

  2. Thanks for lining up Michelle! Themed movie night? I can't wait to hear about that!!!!

  3. Cathy- I'll post the recipe for it when I post the one for my meatloaf. I make the muffins and biscuits in a big batch then everyone pops it in the microwave when they want them. I have to feed my 4 yr old before preschool so I figure I'll feed everyone else at the same time. lol

    Jessalyn- We just recently started the theme night and it really gets the kids into the mood.
