Menu Plan: 05/02 – 05/08



I never did get a menu plan done last week, but it would’ve been a bust anyway since I ended up coming down with a serious case of sinobronchitis!  Yuck!  We managed to survive, but I’m looking forward to getting back into a semi normal routine.   The kids will be home from school on Tuesday due to it being election day, so I’ll definitely have to make some goodies to have on hand for snacking.   Since the weather is warming up, you’ll probably start seeing more and more crock pot meals on my menu plans.  The nice thing about crock pots is that I can set them outside when it’s hot to keep from heating up my house! 

So, here’s my menu plan for the week will be out of the pantry:


  • Amish Baked Oatmeal
  • Cinnamon French Bread Breakfast Casserole
  • Apples with peanut butter or dulce de leche (caramel dipping sauce)
  • Crepes


  • Sandwiches
  • Leftovers


  • Grilled hamburgers & hot dogs
  • Grilled chicken with baked potatoes (cooked in roaster oven)
  • Poor Man’s Soup (cooked in the crock pot) with grilled cheese sandwiches
  • Crock Pot Pinto Beans, potatoes, & cornbread
  • Crock Pot Chili
  • Leftovers

I’m planning leftovers at least twice this week to give me a bit more time to recoup plus get a few things done around here that need to be done.

  1. I know what ya mean about trying to get back up to par after being sickly! Hope you're on the mend :)Your menu looks like a good one, both in terms of good food and relatively easy for mom to put together!~~


  2. Hope you are feeling better now! My kids and I have been sick for a while now too. Looking forward to having things back to "normal." Great looking menu…I love my crockpot too! (I'm going to try the Poor Man's Soup soon!)
