Happy Sunday Friends!  If you are like me, you are always scrambling around every month for meal ideas .  It has to be simple, easy, hopefully healthy, and most important yummy for this crew of mine that I have to feed at least 457 times each day.  Smile

So without further ado, here are the menu plans for our family this week…



  • SundayCranberry Bagels, served with cream cheese or jelly
  • Monday – Homemade Granola  {recipe coming soon}
  • TuesdayBiscuits – sausage, jelly, apple butter, or cheese  Your Choice!!
  • Wednesday – Cereal  This can be served hot or cold.  We keep a variety on hand.
  • ThursdayCinnamon Rolls + Milk
  • Friday – Eggs + Bacon + Toast (Cinnamon or Cheese)  My boys prepare this one each week.
  • Saturday – Homemade Waffles + Sausage Links


  • Sunday – Chili Fellowship with our Life Group Class.
  • Monday – Sandwiches + Pretzels + Greek Yogurt
  • Tuesday– Nachos with Beans and Cheese Sauce
  • Wednesday – Ramen Noodles with Bacon Bits  My kiddos call these “curly hair noodles”.  It is a strange combination for sure, but it is a simple, cheap lunch that fills them up.  Ha!!
  • Thursday – Sandwiches + Chips + Fruit
  • FridayPeanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches + Apple Slices
  • Saturday – Cheese Crackers + Fruit + Lit’l Smokies + Other Fun Appetizers  We are having our “just us” Thanksgiving celebration this day so I am not 100% sure of the menu yet.


  • SundayChicken and Cheese Taquitos, served with sour cream + salsa
  • MondaySwiss Chicken Bake + Sugar Snap Pea Stir Fry (new to us) + Salad
  • Taco Tuesday – Soft Beef Tacos + Black Beans + Chips and Salsa
  • Wednesday – Fellowship Meal.  No Cooking for Mommy!!  Woo Hoo!!! 
  • Thursday – Baked Potato Bar + Salad
  • Friday – Homemade Pepperoni and Mushroom Pizza + Salad + Soda + Cookies
  • Saturday – Grill Steaks + Lots of Yummy Sides + Desserts  This is our “Just Us” Thanksgiving Meal. We chose not to eat turkey again on this day.  I am not 100% sure of the entire menu yet.

So there you have it…  That is what’s cooking at our house this week.

I hope you like this new blog series.  I plan to post each Sunday so I hope you will come back next week for more meal planning inspiration. 

Be sure to tell me in the comments below what some of your favorite appetizers are for this time of year.  I would like to try a few new ones on Saturday for our family day. 

Blog - School - Signature


Have you heard about the grocery pickup option at your local Walmart?  We have been using this service for 2+ years now and LOVE it.  You simply go online, order all your fresh groceries + household items, schedule your pickup date + time, drive to your local store, and they will load everything up in the back of your vehicle.  Easy Peasy!! We LOVE It!!!  I also love that there are no fees or subscriptions.  The prices are the same online as in the store and you pay exactly what you would shopping the traditional way but without the wobbly buggy and having to stand in line to checkup.  We all miss that part, right?  Ha!

So what are you waiting for…  Give it a try!!  I even have a $10 coupon code for you to use on your 1st order.
