Menu Plan Monday- July 14th 2008 Edition

This coming weekend we are taking a trip back to my husband's home town.  This 6 hour one-way drive should be interesting with a toddler:)  If you have any ideas to help with that feel free to comment!  In saying that I am pretty much saying it is a light week around here since  I won't need to worry about food for about 3 days thanks to my husband's wonderful family who will be hosting us! Here is my plan for the week:

Breakfast: Unfortunately in this house there are not many options.
  • Frozen pancakes (made from scratch and then frozen) and fruit
  • Oatmeal with fruit
  • Cold cereal (if you coupon long enough you will never run out of cereal!) with fruit
  • Yogurt with fruit
  • Eggs and toast with fruit
  • Leftovers
  • Meat and cheese sandwhich
  • Grilled cheese sandwich
  • PB & J sandwhich
  • Mac and Cheese
  • Rice and veggies
Note: All lunches are served with fruits and veggies from what I was able to buy for the week

Sunday: My family decided to get together for a birthday dinner in honor of all the July b-day's we have, so no cooking for me!
Monday: Sloppy Joes/baked beans/steam broccoli/strawberries
Tuesday: Chicken patty sandwiches (these are from the free fast fixin chicken I got)/mashed potatoes/peas/orange slices
Wednesday:  Potato soup (I'll post this recipe Tuesday)/bread/apple slices (this recipe is big enough that we will be taking half of it to a friend who just had a baby!)
Thursday: Breakfast- sausage/egg scramble over potatoes with banana chocolate chip muffins and fruit.
Friday-Sunday we are out of town!

Have a great week and don't forget to check out other great menu plans here!

It all sounds good to me!

I made a trip from Ohio to Alabama last week with my kids (5 and 2) and my 21 year-old sister. Frequent stops and the $100 portable DVD player (not frugal, but DH and I consider it $$ well spent) were what kept us sane.
