First, I chose what our supper “themes” would be. Then I came up with four meals for each one. Then I plugged them all into a calendar and had a look at how it balanced out. I didn’t want to be eating rice four nights in a row or whatever. Here is what our meal plan looks like for the next month.
S- Pot roast, veggies
M- Cabbage rolls
T- Fettucine alfredo
W- Chicken and baby corn curry soup
F- Salmon/rice/veg of some kind
S- Crockpot scalloped potatoes and beans
S- Pineapple ham, veggies
M- Cottage pie (like Sheperds pie)
T- Low fat baked ziti with spinach
W- Butternut Squash soup with bread rolls
F- Fish chowder
S- Crockpot chili
S- Roast pork, veggies
M- Chicken Divan
T- Spaghetti bolognese
W- Chicken stew with bread rolls
F- Fish n’ chips
S- Chicken Taco Chili
As for breakfasts, oatmeal with honey and frozen blueberries seems to be king at the moment. Every morning when I go in to pick Lucy up, she always says, “Hi…oatmeal”. I’m hoping she will eventually start liking scrambled eggs to give us some variety!
Lunch is probably my biggest struggle as far as meals go. Sometimes it’s an odds and ends muffin tin sort of lunch. Other days it’s leftovers, but I really would like to make more effort and have something like quesadillas or baked beans on toast. What is your family eating these days? I’m always so curious about what other people like to cook and eat with their families, especially those with small children.
I’m hoping to share recipes for some of these meals in the next little bit so come back and check it out. Happy Thursday!
