A few days ago I posted our monthly menu plan. As I said at that time, I am still planning to break it down each week.
This week will see us gone two mornings. On those days I have planned either meals I can make ahead of time and require no cooking (salad) or crock pot meals. I love walking into the house and smelling the yummy food that we get to eat. It is even better to know that I didn’t just stand in the kitchen for 30 minutes to make it.
Sunday we changed out of our normal routine and had the Puff Pancakes instead of our normal crepes. We were supposed to have these on Saturday but changed out plans to eat out. I had my hesitation about these but was pleasantly surprised. They were each to make and didn’t take much time, yet came out looking and tasting great. These are definitely a repeat recipe for us. I can’t say the same about the Wine-braised beef stew. It wasn’t bad, but we have other recipes we like better.
- Puff pancakes with maple cream syrup, fruit, juice and coffee
- Eggs, toast, juice
- Chocolate Butterhorns
- Eggs, toast, meat, fruit

Also check out Confessions of a Homeschooler’s March’s Monthly Meal Plan. If this is a new concept to you, take some time to think it over. Imagine only having to sit down once a month to menu plan, rather than 4 or 5 times. It worked for me, perhaps it will do the same for you.
