Menu Plan Monday - 5/11/09

I took a week off from menu planning to see how it would go. I was pleasantly surprised. We ate in every night except the weekend which I would have planned for anyways. I didn't stress over what to have since we really had many options. The biggest problem that I am running into is baseball games/practices. We normally eat between 6:30 - 7:00pm. With baseball 4-5 nights a week, it's hard to fit dinner in before and it's so late after that nobody's really hungry. I think that's why skipping a week of menu planning went so well. I wasn't wasting my time preparing a meal that either not going to get eaten or would sit for 2 hours until we returned from baseball.

Here's my menu plan:

Breakfast Options:
French Toast
Omelet/Scrambled Eggs, toast

Lunch Options:
Soup/Grilled Cheese
Bologna Sandwich, salad
Bagel Bites
Salad, Fruit

1. Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue, Veggies of some sort
2. Swedish Meatballs and Egg Noodles, salad

3. Cabbage Rolls
4. Cheeseburgers and/or turkey sausage. cole slaw, french fries
5. Pork Chops with Cider Gravy, Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Sauteed Apples and Onions
