Menu Plan - April 28th to May 16th

I'm sitting here working on my menu plan, and I don't know what it is, but I'm drawing a bit of a blank.

Used to be that I could just sit down, pull out a blank sheet of paper and the meals would just flow onto the page, but lately it's not working that way, it's quite frustrating actually.

I want to be able to share new recipes with you all, so I'm always on the look out for a new one to try, but there are days where I just want good ol tried and true recipes that I've been making for....well...for my whole life.

Anyway, here are the plans for the next two weeks, I may change one or two things around, but for the most part, this is what I'm sticking to. Oh and I'm totally going back to planning breakfast and lunch as well, it definitely makes things easier around here.

Breakfast will always include coffee for me, the kids will drink juice or milk.  Lunch will be either leftovers or something easy like sandwiches.

  1. Love this! I'm a mom of 2 ( 3yrs and 4 months ) and returning to work part-time from maternity leave next week...I'm giving a two week menu a try!

  2. Hi
    love to see your menu plan..
    Sandra can you follow your menu plans , I try but I can stick to probably 2-3 days to the max , so its incredible to see you planing for so many days.. what if there are leftovers how do you manage??

  3. Hi
    I love reading your meal plans .. they are so different from what we make at home but so interesting.
    Do you always follow what you plan as I too make a weekly menu plan but its only about 50% of the times that I really follow them as there are leftovers or sometimes there is change of plan.
    How do you manage your leftovers??
