Weekly Meal Planning May 27-31, 2012

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? It’s time for another weekly menu.  I enjoy menu planning because of  the simplicity it provides for my life. It enables me to decrease my grocery shopping excursions to twice a month and it allows me to  have more free time to focus on my family and home. For ideas in the weekly meal plan, we’ll be focusing on a variety of family meals. You’ll find the recipes on the weekly meal plan also available on my Recipe Index page with a grocery list included.

My Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Memorial Day! Yes, I know it’s a bit late but I hope you all enjoyed, had fun and relaxed this past 3-day weekend. I had planned on sharing our end of May Meal Plan on Sunday when I normally share my meal plans but got all caught up in family time. Every Memorial day weekend, we not only remember those brave ones who served our country, we also celebrate our baby girl’s birthday. Our baby girl turned 9 yesterday. I’m just as surprised as you. Where has time gone?

So we end the month with lots of excitement running right into this first week of  June….Sierra turns 9, Victoria graduates from high school, kids last day of school picnic in the park, and Sunset Magazine’s Celebration Weekend. And we can’t forget to plan for Father’s Day too! Our menu is easy, simple, quick and planned out!

My weekly meal plan and shopping list is completed and posted on our fridge:

Breakfast, Snacks and Lunches were so simple last week, I’ll be carrying them over to this week.

Breakfasts Getting off to a good start with high-quality, low-fat breakfasts. If you’re in a time crunch and you’re morning is a rush, plan your breakfast the night before. These recipe ideas will be posted throughout the week: Cinnamon Roll Pancakes,  French Toast Egg-in-a-Hole, Scrambled Eggs with Ham and Apple, Whole-grain toast or a bagel with strawberry jam and a piece of fresh fruit, maybe some Whole-Wheat Buttermilk biscuits with nonfat yogurt, low-fat cottage cheese, or skim milk with fresh fruit.

Lunches are usually a bit more flexible, but this week we’ll start off with a Deli Style Pasta Salad, Egg Salad Sandwiches, Green Garden Salad.

Snacks Apple-Cheese Snacks, Munchy Crunchy Granola, Raw Veggies Snacks

In addition to our weekly menu, we have a baking day on a weekly basis. Every Sunday afternoon, we will rotate through restocking some nutritious snacks and baked goods, such as granola, protein bars, granola bars, muffins, and/or biscuits  for various meals.

Dinner (recipes will post throughout the week)

Sunday: Zesty Taco Salad

Monday: Happy Memorial Day! Happy Birthday Sierra! Slow Baked Baby Back Ribs, Spaghetti, Garlic Bread, Watermelon and of course Birthday Cake and Ice Cream!
