My normal menu planning routine includes hunting through the fridge, freezer, and cupboard to see what we already have. I try to plan around that and then fill in the gaps with sale items from the grocery store.
Last week was crazy at our house. I decided to boycott grocery shopping as long as possible. I ended up making a last-minute run to the grocery store on Saturday morning, attempting to get home in time to catch the Ohio State football game. Needless to say, I didn’t have a menu plan. I didn’t have a great list. I was flying by the seat of my pants.
While I was at the store, I picked up some chicken and ground beef and a few other items and figured I’d create a menu plan around that. So here goes!
:: Breakfasts ::
Homemade granola with fresh fruit
Gluten-free pumpkin pancakes
Gluten-free pumpkin muffins (I *almost* have this recipe perfected for you!)
Eggs, sausage, fresh fruit
Apple cinnamon baked oatmeal
Smoothies, scrambled eggs
:: Lunches ::
Sandwiches, veggie tray
Hot dogs with chili sauce, carrot sticks
Munchy lunch (cheese, popcorn, celery with peanut butter, fruit)
:: Dinners ::
