Meal Plan 9.1.14

We start back to school on Tuesday so things are going to get busy around here.  I spent two days last week prepping freezer meals, veggies, and canning so hopefully that will help keep us organized.  I’ll try and link up recipes when I have them and you can check out my Pinterest boards for more ideas and inspiration.
Breakfasts: We have a variety of breakfast items kicking around the house and pick and choose as we go.  This week we have yogurt, cereal, and english muffins.

Lunches: I typically pack our lunches the night before.  Most of the time it is leftovers from dinners but some of our other favorites include, english muffin pizzas, quesadillas, crackers and hummus, and sandwiches. For toddler lunch ideas, check this out.

Dinners: I plan these out one for each night.  Typically we’ll have a “breakfast for dinner” night once a week and at least one “meatless meal”.  I try to stick to traditional real food (no food dyes, artificial coloring, flavoring, or sweeteners)  I also try to make as much from scratch as possible, it is cheaper that way and I can control the type and source of my ingredients.

Note: Tilly eats the same things we do because 1. I don’t want to make extra work for myself and 2. I want her to be exposed to lots of different flavors and textures.  I just make sure things are cut into pieces she can handle.

  1. Not really. I use my bread machine and mix up a regular wheat bread (I use the recipe the machine came with) but add a couple shakes of italian seasoning, parsley, and garlic powder. Then when it's baking i sprinkle some shredded cheese on top. Sometimes you just have to make things up 🙂
