Sample Meal Plan

I don't HAVE to make these on a certain day. I do make these meals during a week and only buy the ingredients to make the meals.
Please note that we have 3 kids here and most of the meals are "kid friendly" :)
We change it up every week. This is just this weeks :)

Monday: Shepherds Pie, Cottage Cheese/Pineapple, Jello
Tuesday: Spanish Rice, Oranges, Broccoli
Wednesday: $1.50 Happy Meals at McDonalds! We all get one - 4 meals = $6.00
Thursday: Grilled Salmon, Salad, Cottage Cheese, baked potato
Friday: Homemade pizza, salad (made enough the night before for 2 nights) ice cream
Saturday: Lunch- Grilled cheese/tomato soup, carrots, some sort of baked yummy that I made for the kids lunches that week.
Supper - Pancakes, sausage or bacon if it's on sale, scrambled eggs, orange slices
Sunday: Spaghetti, garlic bread, green beans, mandarin oranges
Sunday night: Leftovers!! The kids have "days" Odd # = James Even # = Hannah, whoever has the day it is gets to pick first.
Monday: Grilled Pork chops, homemade fries, broccoli, applesauce
Tuesday: Grilled chicken, mac n cheese, green beans, some sort of fruit

This is a hard area for me too. One because of my picky eating habits, and two because Dean doesn't have a normal work schedule. Last week he was in the UP for a few days. Most of the time we fend for ourselves, or I make something different for each of us. I will have to work on this since Addie is starting to eat more and more table food, and I want us to have family meals together. Thanks Pam.

THANK YOU!

I'm going grocery shopping tonight - I have been procrastinating on it all weekend. I'm hoping to meal plan so I can make my list off that solely.

i'll let you know how it goes!

I like that Sunday night is left over night. Does James come home for lunch or does he pack? Most of our left overs go with Kraig the next day for work.
Thanks for the sample meal plan.
