The first Menu Plan Monday of the whole year! Let’s see if I can make good on my new year’s “goal” of getting back to menu planning the right away. Today I only planned this week’s menu, since I don’t need to go grocery shopping yet. But at the end of this week, I’ll menu plan the next two weeks and grocery shop for that all at once using our weekly sales flyer to make the most of our money. On another note, this week’s menu isn’t as full or healthy as I’d like because *gasp!* I went grocery shopping without a list or plan – one more reason to plan ahead of time, make a list, and do it right.

This week:



  • Breakfast ~ Cereal
  • Lunch ~ Tuna Salad & Crackers
  • Supper ~ Taco soup & Corn Salad


  • Breakfast ~ Buttermilk Pancakes & Bacon
  • Lunch ~ Baked Potatoes
  • Supper ~ Smoked Sausage, Homemade Mac N Cheese, Veggies


  • Breakfast ~ Cereal
  • Lunch ~ Grilled Cheese & Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
  • Supper ~ Porcupine Meatballs, Veggies, Cornbread


  • Breakfast ~ Eggs & Bacon, Toast
  • Nacho Supremes
  • Pizza Pasta


  • Breakfast ~ Buttermilk Biscuits, Bacon, Gravy
  • Lunch ~ Leftovers
  • Supper ~ Salisbury Steaks & Veggies

At some point, I also want to make this peanut butter pie that I’ve had the ingredients for but haven’t gotten around to! (I was supposed to make it on Christmas Eve – oh well!)

Menu Plan Monday is hosted by Laura @ I’m an Organizing Junkie!

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
