Weekly Menu Plan Jan 6-12

Time for another round of weekly menu planning. I got a lot of questions last week about how these meals work in our family and who eats what. The breakfast options, while certainly can be for the entire family, are mostly just for me in our home. The kids eat cereal most days before school, and I make myself breakfast when they get home. The lunch options typically feed Derek and myself, and Kyle eats hot lunch at school, and Kinsley eats whatever she'd like for lunch when she gets home. We all eat the same things for dinner each night.

We try to eat as many healthy meals as possible, every night of the week. Meals that take longer, we prepare in the slow cooker. Having a weekly meal plan really helps us to save money, and have great ideas for what to eat throughout the week. I always need meal ideas laid out ahead of time or else I just won't eat, or eat junk food. That's why I try and plan some easy meal ideas for myself for breakfast and lunch each week so that I know I'm not skipping out until our big family meal each night.

  1. I so need to get into this habit. I probably won't post it anywhere, but being better about planning ahead, not running to the grocery store as often and using up what we have so we don't waste any food. Its hard, but so worth it. Thanks for giving me some motivation.
