Weekly Meal Planning:March 12-17, 2012

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? It’s time for another weekly menu. Last week we finished up our 6th week of the Just In Time Family Meal Planning Challenge. Overall, having a weekly meal plan each week was easier than trying to come up with a dinner plan at the last minute. We were definitely pleased with the results.

For ideas in the weekly meal plan, we’ll be focusing on kid friendly meals. Some of the recipes you’ll find on my Recipe Index page with grocery list included.

My Weekly Meal Plan

Breakfasts each day will consist of eggs, mainly scrambled. (I’ll even make some extra for the new chicks, they love em.)  We will scramble them with cheese, spinach, peppers, onions, sausage or ham. Maybe toss a few breakfast burritos together.

Lunches are primarily leftovers, soup and salad.  Snacks consist of fruit and homemade crock pot greek yogurt , fresh veggie platter, cottage cheese, peanut butter, nuts, crackers and cheese.

Tuesday: Chicken and Mashed Potato Casserole, Steamed Broccoli, Homemade Crock Pot Applesauce

Wednesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs

Thursday: Sesame Beef and Broccoli served with Rice

Friday:  Grilled Ham and Cheese with Pears

Saturday: Apple and Cheddar Frittata (not your typical St. Patrick’s Day meal, but it’s using ingredients we have on hand in the fridge and pantry.)
