Menu Plan #1

Menu Plan #1

My plan for this week focuses on easy, especially for breakfasts. I am really nervous about being able to get myself and Quinten ready for the day all before 7 am. I hate, hate, HATE planning meals but cooking for seven makes you quickly realize the benefit of having a real plan every week. The weeks I’m too lazy to work up a real plan has us scavenging the pantry for something to eat.

Okay….I had a nice little table for my menu plan but I can’t figure out how to get it to post in its entirety….and it’s pissing me off. Here it is broken up and nowhere near as nice. Of course, as I’ve made changes, I’ve lost the links to the meals. I will come back and replace them soon.

I think I’ve listed everything that is included in the recipes. The amounts should feed 6 adults for 8 days. I’ve estimated that it would be $2.54 per person per meal or $7.63 per person per day. I panic over the cost some days until I break it down like this.
