Menu Plan: Sometimes Old Stand-bys are Best


I’ve become a broken record with my “goodness, it’s so BUSY!” mantra, but it really does feel that way. I’m not complaining– it’s all “good busy,” which is a true blessing. It’s races and gymnastics and church school and teaching and concerts and dances and special-events kind of busy. These are all lovely and WANTED things in our lives! Still, a little planning goes a long way. And you know what I’ve (re)discovered? Sometime the best plan is to involve a whole lot of “old standbys.”


Here’s how we’re putting that into practice–

you gotta eat






B– Eggs w/ Cheese, Toast, Apples

D– Large 1/2 Cheese, 1/2 Black Olive pizza, Medium Broccoli pizza





B– Double Chocolate Pancakes, Berries, Pink Grapefruit Juice (<– this was a “just the girls” breakfast!)

L– leftover pizza (<– when A’s not here for pizza night, there are LOTS of leftovers ;) )



B–Cereal, Apples, Milk ( before 7:30AM Mass)

Brunch– Egg, Sausage, & Cheese Burritos

D–Rigatoni w/ Meatballs, Broccoli



B–Pancakes, Apples, Milk

D–Turkey & Bean Burritos



B–Cereal, Yogurt & Fruit

D–Poor Man’s Chicken Parm, Salad




B–English Muffins, Berries, Juice

D–Hot Dogs, Green Beans (date night)




B–Breakfast Burritos, Clementines

Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken

D–Sesame Chicken over Rice




B–Egg Sandwiches, Bananas

D–some sort of meatless pizza… I’m leaning toward a salsa verde w/ cheddar and peppers combo.




B–Scrambled Eggs w/ Cheese, Muffins

D–end-of-the-month leftovers! :)




And that should do it!
