Need some meal planning inspiration? Here’s what we are having this week!
Weekly Menu Plans – Fall at Home
In an effort to have a little accountability in my menu plans, I’ve decided to post them here again. I don’t really do a lot of menu planning in the summer because it’s just mostly trying to keep up with whatever garden produce I have for the day, but in the fall/winter/spring I like to have a plan so that we can have a better school day.
This is our plan for this week. I have the recipes linked for some but I haven’t posted all of them yet! There are a few days we will be gone which is noted by the day. On these days we have a snacky type of lunch that I can pack. We sometimes have sandwiches if I happen to have lunch meat on hand.
This plan is for our family of 5 who are all home every day since we mostly work from home. This week I won’t be including Saturday and Sunday’s plans because we are camping.
Hopefully, these plans will encourage you to make a plan of your own! For more details on how I menu plan, check out my post on The Easiest Meal Planning Method Ever.
**I do not plan side dishes, we make those from whatever fruits/veggies we have on hand that week.
Breakfast – Oatmeal
Lunch – Freezer Food
Supper – Steak and Fried Cabbage
Breakfast – English Muffins and Sausage
Lunch – Homemade Corn Dogs (Will use my cornbread recipe in muffin cups with cut-up hot dogs)
Supper – Peach and Steak Salads (using leftovers from the night before)
Breakfast – Maple Pancake Casserole
Lunch – Freezer Foods
Supper – Orange Chicken over Riced Broccoli
***If you’ve made it this far I’m sure you are wondering what the “Freezer Foods” are on my meal plan…
Basically, my freezers are currently full and we need to eat out of them so on those days that I planned “Freezer Food” for lunch, I’ll head out to the freezer in the morning and pick out some things and make a meal out of it!***
I don’t typically plan our snacks but there are a few things that I know that I’m making this week in addition to these meals so I’m including those recipes here too:
