I took time off of menu planning in December.  The month was so busy that I had trouble getting to it!  But life is much easier with a plan so I don’t wind up doing the 5:00 scramble that so often ends in ordering pizza.  So I’m definitely ready to get back to it.

2 Week Meal Plan


  • cereal
  • oatmeal
  • homemade breakfast burritos
  • coffee cake
  • banana bread
  • pancakes


  • sandwiches
  • leftovers
  • muffins
  • pizza
  • soup


Our snacks and extras include

  • fresh fruit
  • cookies
  • cherry pie
  • ice cream
  • soft pretzels
  • popcorn

And that’s it!  I try to keep my meals pretty simple, and they do become repetitive.  But my family enjoys these foods and they are frugal enough to keep on the menu regularly.
