Menu Plan: 12/4 – I hate sausage gravy.


Oh, my friends… I’ve told you all before about how I menu plan.  I’m very committed to that process!  So, imagine my surprise when I just could NOT bring myself to do it this past week?  After nine days without power and over two weeks away on vacation, we, quite simply, had no food in this house.  It was just too daunting to try to work out a month-long plan.  So, what did I do?  I went totally against my grain and shopped first, planned later.  And you know what?  It worked just fine.  Just goes to show that there’s more than one way to skin a cat, eh?



Here’s what I’ve ended up with for this week’s plan:



Early Breakfast for the littles-Cereal, Apple Slices, Milk (before 7:30am mass)

Brunch-Cinnamon Rolls, Sausage Links, Clementines

Mid-Afternoon Snack- leftover Halloween candy (*blush*)
D-Sunday Supper at Bama & Papa’s


B-PB&J Oatmeal, Milk
L-Tuna Sandwiches, Apples, Pretzels, Water
D-Turkey Medallions Marsala over Noodles


B-Oatmeal Raisin Muffins w/ mini choc chips, Yogurt, Juice
L-HB Egg, Toast, Apple, Water
D-Mushroom Swiss Burgers on homemade buns, Pickles


B-Oatmeal Raisin Muffins w/ mini choc chips, Applesauce, Milk
L-Cheese Quesadillas, Raisins, Water
D-Macaroni & Cheese w/ Ham & Broccoli


B-PB Raisin Toast, Milk
L-Buttered Macaroni & Peas, String Cheese, Water
D-Turkey, Cheddar, & Broccoli Soup, Cheese Quesadilla


B-Strawberry Smoothies, Toast


B-Biscuits & Gravy, Apples
L-Franks & Beans, Clementines
D-Penne w/ Italian Tomatoes, Goat Cheese, & Shrimp (<– my husband will be at his company holiday party this night… but the kids and I will still feast in style!)


For the record, I do NOT like biscuits & gravy.  That whole “sausage gravy” thing skeeves me out.  That said, I know tons and tons of you positively love the stuff.  The rest of my family agrees with you.  As a result?  I am perfectly capable of cooking it.  And I do.  Is there anything you make for your family that you yourself can’t stand?
