Menu Plan Monday

OK...It's time to try this again. As stated before, menu planning isn't usually the way I operate. Instead, I keep plenty of food on hand and usually have many options to choose from for meals, and that has worked fine for us to date. But with all three being school age and therefore, this particular teacher's days being longer and more of a balancing/juggling act than ever, it seems like having one might benefit us and help the flow of our week. The weeks are getting a little hairier to navigate - this one and the coming one have multiple things thrown in that aren't part of our usual schedule - and one can only assume that they will continue to be that way till the holidays begin. And on that note, there are tons of things I'd like to make and do for Christmas that having a plan might free up a bit more time to work on. So here it goes... (Little G helped with the breakfast plan. Some of his choices may get vetoed.)

Breakfast - Pumpkin Pancakes
Lunch - Sandwiches and leftover
Dinner -Potato-Leek Chowder

Breakfast - eggs & toast
Lunch - sandwiches (probably pb & chocolate chip - the girls have had this almost every day for lunch for weeks now!), chips, apples - on the run
Dinner - Greek Pork Wraps

Breakfast - cold cereal or microwaved oatmeal
Lunch - sandwiches, apples, crackers - on the run
Dinner - Leftovers - (soups)

Breakfast - omelets
Lunch - Potstickers
Dinner - Leftover Salmon from freezer and...?

Breakfast - waffles (maybe)
Lunch - ?
Dinner - Homemade Pizza

Breakfast - cinnamon rolls (doubtful)
Lunch - Leftover pizza
Dinner - whatever I feel like (gotta' have one day of freedom!)

Breakfast - ?
Lunch - Leftovers
Dinner - Thai Peanut chicken, salad,

There are some great forms for menu-planning (and lots of other things) at The Homeschool Mom if you need something like that.

I have also spent some time trying to get a few meals in the freezer and may use one of them on Saturday as we are going to be doing some work around the house and need to be productive with that instead of cooking.
