Menu Plan Monday ~ Episode 2

Last week I mentioned keeping my pantry stocked with certain items as a fail-safe way of making sure that there is always something that can be made for a meal. You wouldn't believe how many times my pantry staples have saved the day. Sometimes in the hectic moments grocery shopping just doesn't happen for whatever reason. Or I get home late and grocery shopping is the last thing I want to do with the little ones.

What follows are some of my kids favorite "unplanned" meal choices from our pantry staples. They are simple and filling.

  • Fried Rice, either vegetarian or with chopped chicken
  • Chicken Pot Pie
  • Cheese Pizza
  • Spaghetti with homemade bread
  • Loaded Baked Potatoes
  • Pancakes or Waffles with Bacon or sausage
  • Teriyaki Chicken and Broccoli with Rice
  • Calzones
  • Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Toast
  • Fried Potatoes with Eggs and Bacon
  • French Toast
  • Grilled Cheese
  • Chicken Noodle Soup and Grilled Cheese
  • Homemade Mac n Cheese
  • French Onion Soup
  • Baked Potato Soup
  • Lentil and veggie Soup
  • Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce
  • Chicken Alfredo
  • "Naked"Chicken Parmesan, (unbreaded chicken)
  • White Pizza, pizza with Alfredo Sauce, Chicken, Onions and Cheese
  • Potato and Chicken Curry over Rice
  • Sausage and Biscuit Sandwhiches
  • Biscuits and Sausage Gravy with Scrambled Eggs
This weeks menu follows. And if there is a night where I don't feel like setting up the planned meal, I'll likely pick something quick from the list!

  • Auju Sandwiches with chips 
  • Chicken Parmesan with Pesto Pasta
  • Sundried Tomatos and Beef over French Bread
  • Toasted Olive Salad Sandwiches and fruit
  • Kale and Ham Quiche
  • Chicken Wings with Potato Wedges

Here's to another great week in this New Year!
