Weekly Menu Plan & Once a Week Cooking

This week I cooked up most of my meals ahead of time. I get such a great amount of joy when I am in the kitchen preparing meals. The more I cook the more peace I feel. My children are kept busy and quiet while they learn new tasks in the kitchen. I only wish that if my kitchen were larger I could have them all in there at one time. I try and set up stations to compensate for the lack of space. One child will rinse veggies at the sink. Another will chop at the table while another kneads dough in the dining room. And I am always at the stove.

My menu this week consists of the following….

Breakfast
Pancakes (2x)
Oatmeal (2x)
Cereal (2x)
9×13 meatloaf (2 dinners)

Lunch

Mac & Cheese (2x)
Pastrami and Baked Bread (2x)
P-b-&-J sandwiches (2x)


Ground Turkey Soft Taco filling (1 dinner)

Diced Chicken Enchillada filling (1 dinner)

8 cups of Chicken Broth

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (3 dozen)

1 loaf, 1 roll of white bread and 5 cookies (reward for the childrens hard work) Dinner

Jerk Chicken, Rice & peas, Cabbage

Meatloaf with rice, gravy & veggies (2x)

Enchilladas/Soft Tacos with Spanish Rice (2x)

Salisbury Steak with gravy, rice and veggies

KFC 20 piece family meal (My In-Loves bought us dinner)

  3. I love the way you have everything organized! I am so much more together once school starts (I homeshcool my youngest and the two older go to public schools). I plan on trying this once things settle down and having my daughter start to learn more about cooking!

    Blessings to you and yours,
