Menu Planning Monday - better late than never!

We're going out of town Sunday evening, so I only have to plan this weeks menu from Monday to Saturday.

Monday: pumpkin ravioli, oven fried chicken, sauteed greens
Tuesday: cheese manicotti (from freezer), garlic bread, sauteed greens
Wednesday: Oven Fried Pork Chops, roasted beets, sauteed cabbage, applesauce
Thursday: "Breakfast for Dinner" - sausage links (from freezer), waffles, applesauce
Friday: Bacony Lentil Stew (I have a bunch of bacon ends that I need to use up), sauteed cabbage, Mountain Pie
Saturday: leftovers

Breakfasts: yogurt, cereal; eggs, toast
Lunches: nori rolls (avocado, carrot, rice, nori), teriyaki meatballs; leftover oven fried chicken, fruit; PB&J/ham & cheese sandwiches, tortilla chips or pretzels; Crock Pot Falafel, hummus, pita chips, carrot sticks and/or cucumber slices; smoothies, popcorn

I am impressed - you even have breakfast and lunches planned out! I also like the breakfast for dinner option, you are the third blog I have read with that plan. Definitely something I should look into!

Hello and welcome!

we like doing "breakfast for dinner" every now and then. It's an inexpensive meal, plus we can sometimes be a little more elaborate than time usually allows in the morning.

The entire household has to be out of the house during the morning, planning at least a rough idea of breakfasts makes the morning a whole lot smoother.

We also don't get home until after lunchtime, so packing our lunches keeps us from stopping for a bite at Taco Bell (even the Value Menu can add up!).
