Menu Plan Monday!

I don't always plan what I am having each day.  I usually just plan a menu list of ideas that I can pull from.  I do of course tend to make crockpot meals on days that we are running out of the house for Bible Study and choir, it really just makes life easier.

Another thing that has been extremely helpful lately is crockpot meals on Sundays!  It is SO lovely to come home to dinner right after church.  It makes for a much more relaxing day.  We eat dinner early and then later in the evening people can either have seconds or a sandwich.  I am really not sure why I haven't always done this!

So here is my list of Menu Ideas just as it is posted on my refrigerator...

  • Baked Oatmeal - this is a staple here nowadays!  
  • Cereal - Yes, I am a cereal mom : )  I do get the "good" cereal like Raisin Bran and Honey Nut Joe O's and then I don't feel as bad.
  • Waffles w/ Fruit
  • Pancakes w/ Fruit
  • Cream of Wheat - I hook it up with bananas, cinnamon and honey
  • Apple Muffins - the Lil' Chef Makes these and they are yum-mee!

  • Chili Dogs  - from left over Chili the night before
  • Mini Tacos - I try not to buy a lot of convenience foods but these Little Mini Tacos from Trader Joe's are a WOW!
  • Homemade Pizza
  • Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup
  • Mac & Cheese w/ Apple Slices and Grapes
  • PB & Honeys w/ Carrot Sticks and Orange Slices
  • Tuna Melts on Pita Crackers
  • Chicken Spaghetti - This is a good throw it in the crockpot meal.  I throw in boneless, skinless chicken thighs and a jar of spaghetti sauce.  I cook on high for 4 hours, then when I come home from church I just boil some noodles, mix, and top with mozzarella cheese.  I pair it with a salad and eat!
  • Chili w/ Rice
  • Tacos
  • Sloppy Jane's (crockpot), Broccoli, Homemade Potato Wedges
  • Meatball Subs - make the meatballs the night before and then throw in the crockpot with a jar of sauce.
  • Pizza
  • Homemade Potato Soup w/ Homemade Bread

  • Yogurt Tubes 
  • Cheese Sticks
  • Fruit
  • Apples & Honey Spread
  • Celery & PB
  • Pretzels & PB
  • Air Popped Popcorn w/ Olive Oil
  • Playgroup Granola Bars - This is a must try!  My little peeps LOVE these!
