BREAKFAST - Our breakfasts are always simple. I'm not a morning person and even when I would force myself to put some effort into cooking a big breakfast the kids would come to the table, look at it and say "we wanted cereal." So cereal it is, along with a glass of juice.

Monday - Sandy's Casserole ( from the freezer), Green Beans, Applesauce, Milk
Tuesday - Lasagna (frozen store bought), Pears, Impossible Pumpkin Pie (Austin)*
Wednesday - Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, Tomato Soup, Applesauce, Milk
Thursday - Hamburger Chow Mein, Peas, Applesauce, Milk
Friday - Pizza (frozen store bought), Pears, Milk (Austin)*
Saturday - Taco Salad, Corn, Southern Style Chocolate Pound Cake (from the freezer), Milk

Monday - Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Salad, Milk (Amanda)*
Tuesday - Twice Baked Potatoes (will make extra for the freezer), Herbed Green Bean Casserole,

Wednesday - Fettuccini Alftredo (Tuna Helper), Corn, Applesauce, Milk
Thursday - Easy Vegetable Soup (from the freezer), Blueberries, Italian Herb Bread, Milk
Friday - Sausage Tomato Soup (will make extra for the freezer), Twice Baked Potatoes (from the freezer), Bacon Cheese Muffins (will make extra for the freezer), Milk

  1. I desperately need to get some freezer cooking done! Just can't seem to find the time. Thanks for checking out my menu :) The Garlic Buttered Noodles are so easy! Just cooked Egg Noodles,about 3 TBLS butter and a nice shake or two of Johnnys Garlic Spread Seasoning - course every thing is good with that stuff on it!
