Menu Plan: Bread Substitutions


It has been glorious around here! (My apologies to those of you still looking at snow– surely Spring is right around the corner!)


I compiled the month’s menu plan and did my “big” shopping trip last week. On the plan this month? Quite a few sandwiches, since we have lots of busy weekends on-the-road. I bake a lot of bread, but I still wanted to grab a loaf or two “just in case.”

Imagine my surprise when I turned the corner and found all the buns, english muffins, and bagels marked down to a quarter a bag! Looks like we’ll be eating some bagel sandwiches on our hikes. (<– That’s actually a good thing, since bagels resist sogginess better than bread!)


Here’s the plan for this week:




Breakfast (for the littles before 7:30am Mass)–Cheerios, Applesauce

BrunchBig Soft Pretzels (I made 8 big pretzels from the recipe for 12) with brown mustard, Apples, Bananas (<– A’s breakfast request for the month)

Snack–Yogurt and popcorn

D–Macaroni & Cheese, Broccoli



B–Vanilla Coconut Oatmeal, Milk

D–Turkey Burgers, Fried Potatoes, Raw Veggies



B–Eggs in Peppers, Toast

D–Chicken Chow Mei Fun (<– my husband LOVES this dish)




B–Cinnamon Granola, Yogurt, Fruit

D–Cheesy Beans & Rice w/ Ranch Dressing (date night!)



B–Cinnamon Almond Oatmeal, Clementines, Milk

D–Homemade Hamburger Helper



B–Strawberry Lime Smoothies, Toast


D–Spinach Alfredo Pizza (1/2 w/ tomatoes)



B– HB Eggs, Corn Bread, Grapes (C’s breakfast choice for the month!)

D– Fettucine Alfredo w/ Turkey & Broccoli (A’s dinner choice for the month!)


You’ll see family members’ choices noted on some menu plans– that’s because I ask each child (and my husband!) to choose one weekend breakfast and one dinner they’d like to see during the month. Last week, I made Eggs Benedict and chicken quesadillas at my hubby’s request. It’s fun for everyone to have input and something to which they can look forward!


What are you most looking forward to eating this week?
