Used to be that I had a regular plan for breakfast all 7 days. And then FishBoy12 requested that I not feed them oatmeal on Monday mornings. And then FishBoy5 started requesting instant oatmeal every morning. And then I tried to do many things at once in the mornings, and it turned into a fend-for-yourself breakfast.
But I’m seeing the error of my ways. My kids and my kitchen will do better with a breakfast meal plan. But, obviously, it wasn’t working with the plan or without. So, time for a new plan! I’m giving it a twist by allowing a few more choices. I’ll let you know how it goes. With homemade convenience items, I think it will work well.
Sunday – cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit, sausage, hot cocoa
Monday - french toast or bagels, fresh fruit, milk
Tuesday – eggs and toast, fresh fruit, orange juice
Wednesday – muffins, smoothies
Thursday – cereal or oatmeal, nuts, dried fruit, milk
Friday – pancakes, sausage or bacon, fresh fruit, milk
Saturday – chef’s choice
As for our dinnertime, this is the outlook for the week:
16. Baked Chicken, Roast Potatoes, and Green Salad – The chicken is prebaked and frozen. Potatoes and Green Salad are easy side dishes.
17. Grilled Fish, Seasoned Rice, and Steamed Veggies – An easy dinner to throw together. I’m thinking I might be able to cook the rice and steam the veggies at the same time in the rice cooker.
19. Family Field Trip
20. Family Field Trip
21. Birthday Dinner
22. Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Steamed Veggies – The meatballs and mashed potatoes are made and frozen. The rest is easy to pull together.
