Brrrr… January sure feels chilly! In reality, I think our temps have been pretty normal, but December was so darn mild that we’re all shivering and fussing.
We’re back in school now and that means that, from time to time, no one is home here all day. As a result, it behooves me to some meals up my sleeve that don’t require a whole lot of hands-on work since I’m not around to do that part.
This week’s menu plan is a reflection of that– I spent several hours on Sunday in my kitchen, just getting all this (and a few more meals, actually) prepped and in the fridge or freezer, ready and waiting for me!
*I’ve noted what I did ahead of time next to the appropriate meals.*
B–Cereal, Apples, Milk ( before 7:30AM Mass)
Brunch– Pancakes, Raspberries, Bananas, Cheese
D–Sunday Supper at Bama & Papa’s (lasagna, salad, fruit, corn)
B–Shredded Wheat Cereal, Apples, Milk
D–Cheesy Beans & Rice (*soaked and cooked beans, cooked rice <– mixed and put in fridge with bag of shredded cheese; made homemade salsa and put in fridge)
B–Egg Wraps, Grapefruit (*made the egg wraps ahead and put them in the fridge so they just needed a quick heating)
D–Burgers w/ the works, Baked Beans (*made burger patties ahead and froze; attached bag of frozen buns, prepped veggies and toppings ahead in fridge)
B–Pancakes, Apples, Milk (*made pancakes and froze)
D–Spaghetti w/ Meat Sauce, Broccoli, Salad (*made homemade meat sauce and froze)
B–Pancakes, Cheese, Juice (*made pancakes and froze)
D–Tomato, Beef, & Veggie Soup; Garlic Bread (*browned meat and veggies and completely assembled soup– except pasta– and froze in large freezer bag— the whole thing can go in the slow cooker; made bread and froze)
B–Cereal, Eggs, Fruit
D–Buffalo Chicken Burritos (*made ahead and froze)
And that should do it!
