Menu Plan Monday - 4/30/12

Well, our packing is progressing nicely. Of course, the kitchen will be the last room that we tackle. I am still planning quick, easy meals.

Menu Plan Monday
Our bread machine pan broke a couple of weeks ago. At first I found that a bit distressing. Especially since it didn't make sense to try to order a new one in the midst of moving. But happily I found a recipe for making bread in bulk. You can make six loaves of bread in the same amount of time that it would take to make one or two! The children and I used the recipe last week and it was fabulous!!

It's more of an all purpose dough, as we used it to make 3 loaves of bread, hot dog buns, cinnamon rolls, and calzones. Eventually I will divide the the dough into 5 parts because the loaves of bread were a little smaller than we prefer. But at the moment for economic reasons, I am sticking to 6.  I will use the dough to make 4 loaves for our sandwiches for lunch, hamburger buns, and pizza dough.

Also for the sake of time, I am going to cook some beans in the crock pot. I will be able to get 3 meals out of them.

Anyhoo, on to this week's menu.

Last week's wheat, apple, banana, honey, walnut, PB muffins

Breakfasts (served with fruit):

Lunches (served with fruit or a vegetable):
  • PBJ x2
  • vegetarian spaghetti
  • leftovers x2
  • ramen noodles

Dinners (served with a vegetable):
  • barbequed sausage over mashed potatoes
  • homemade refried beans on homemade tortillas, rice
  • pinto beans over rice
  • cornbread casserole
  • crustless quiche - I use whatever cheese and green veggie I have on hand
  • homemade cheese pizza

Menu Plan Monday - 4/23

It has been years since I have participated in Menu Plan Monday. I have been planning menus all of this time. I just haven't seen the need to share them on my homeschooling blog. But today the thought occurred to me that pretty much everything that I do for the children is related to school. After all, life is school and school is life.

So with that said, here is my menu plan for the week.

Monday: b - egg, potato, ham, and cheese tortillas, biscuits (leftover) with jelly, bananas; l - leftovers; d - barbecued sausage over rice, Amish bread
Tuesday - b - egg, potato, sausage, and cheese casserole; l -pbj; d - oven barbecued chicken, cream style corn
Wednesday  b - apple scones, fruit; l - ham and cheese sandwiches, fruit; d- loaded baked potatoes
Thurday - b - french toast casserole, fruit; l - leftovers; d - spaghetti with whole wheat noodles
Friday- b - cereal, fruit; l - a to z muffins, fruit; d - hot dogs, homemade hotdog buns, home fries
a hotdog in our homemade bun
 Saturday - b - we usually sleep in ; l - Ramen noodles, green beans; d - chicken fajitas, homemade tortillas, corn

We are in the midst of packing to move out of state. So, meals are going to be as easy a possible during this time of transition. I will get back to well balanced meals as soon as we are settled. Also, I am sticking with tried and true recipes. There isn't much time for experimentation at the moment.
