January 1-7, 2017 Meal Plan

This is our basic meal plan for the week. Sometimes we will switch the days around if I forgot to set something out or put something in the crock pot. Please feel free to use this or change it around to suit your family’s needs.

I do have ‘Snacks/Desserts’ listed as well. I always try to keep a bowl of fresh fruit out on the counter or table for the kids to snack on. Sometimes I will make a special snack or treat for us to enjoy.

Overnight Coffee Cake

This is a recipe that I found a while back. It is really good and smells so wonderful first thing in the morning. I have changed the original recipe around a little bit though. This would make a great freezer meal as well! Continue reading “Overnight Coffee Cake”

Breakfasts

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. During the week we have a schedule that we go by:

  • Mondays: Cereal/Oatmeal
  • Tuesdays: French Toast
  • Wednesdays: Muffins or Toast
  • Thursdays: Pancakes
  • Fridays: Cereal/Oatmeal

This helps keep the morning chaos to a minimum as there is no fussing about what we will be having.
