Menu Plan: Prep-Ahead Meals



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.*



So, here’s the prepped-ahead meal plan for the week!you gotta eat




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)

D–Large Sausage Pizza, Medium Mushroom Pizza (*made dough ahead and froze)






D–Buffalo Chicken Burritos (*made ahead and froze)




And that should do it!
