Menu Plan Monday – 9/29-10/6

September 30, 2013 - Author: lifewithgiada - 2 Comments

MPM-Fall
I am so excited to be back menu planning. I really hope to stick to it for the month of October. I order out and stop at fast food way too much since i haven’t been shopping properly and i end up broke before the end of the month and trying to come up with what to make with what is in my stockpile.
It is the end of the month so i am going to try to use what is here since i am trying to wait to go shopping until saturday. I may pick a few things up on wednesday though.
I decided i need to plan BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER ahead of time so i know what i am making.
I also have an almost 2 1/2 year old so planning her meals will make the day run smoothly. She eats almost everything I eat so it should make planning easier.
Now onto the menu..
I was going to do some baking and such this week but i am saving all that for next week since she is going to her dads an extra day and i want to use up a lot of what is here.
Little miss usually goes to her dads tuesday night- wednesday night and saturday morning to sunday early afternoon. This week she is going an extra day since his fiance was on vacation and missed her and asked if she could come an extra day and this mama is ready for a break! lol

*most meals i make sure to give little miss an applesauce or fruit cup depending on what the meal is, she also likes salad so if we have some in the fridge she has salad with her dinner

SUNDAY- D- crockpot meatballs and sauce over spaghetti, salad, bread

MONDAY- B- cereal
L- leftover roast chicken, potatoes, applesauce for little miss and i think i will make a quick chicken salad with the leftover chicken
D- meatball pannini’s, potato salad, corn on the cob
(little miss will probably have the meatballs cut up on bread)

TUESDAY- B- pancakes out
Lunch and Dinner little miss will be at her dads so i will just whip up something easy for myself

WEDNESDAY- little miss is at her dad’s for the day so i will fend for myself and possibly foodshopping

THURSDAY- B- little miss will be at her dad’s
L- out – we will be going to Gymboree at the mall for Jumpstart’s Read for the Record – Otis by Loren Long
D- some kind of baked thick boneless pork chops, noodles and gravy, peas

FRIDAY- B- waffles, fruit
L- macaroni and cheese, applesauce
D- Pizza night! we will either make pizzas, frozen pizza or order pizza

SATURDAY
- B- something easy
Lunch and Dinner little miss will be at her dad’s, so i usually fend for myself or go out
*BIG FOODSHOPPING!!

SUNDAY- B- Little miss is at her dad’s
L- Grilled Cheese
D- I am hoping to make Chicken Cacciatore over pasta, salad, bread

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
What are some of your easiest, quick make ahead breakfasts?
I am in need of ideas that are easy and quick for breakfast for my daughter besides cereal, waffles, pancakes and eggs. Any crockpot recipes for breakfast you swear by? or what freezes best? I would love some ideas!

    Great menu.
    One of my favorite quick and easy breakfast ideas:
    1 Egg
    1tsp water
    2T shredded cheese
    2T chopped veggies (whatever you have on hand, if any)
    1 taco size flour tortilla

    Spray a coffee cup with non-stick spray. Beat one egg with water, add cheese & veggies and microwave for 1 minute. Heat tortilla for 5 seconds in microwave. Add egg mixture to tortilla, fold up and eat!

    Baked oatmeal is wonderful to make ahead and it reheats well. If you google it you will come up with a ton of recipes! Another one is a breakfast casserole made with eggs, meat and cheese. Again, google is your friend. :)
