Our Menu (Week of January 1, 2012)

I’ve been out of town for a week visiting my family so I had no need for a menu plan last week.  Now that we are home I am ready to begin the new year by keeping up with my organizational and household management tasks.  First task (yes, before even unpacking our bags): menu plan.


Oatmeal with dried cherries, bananas, freshly squeezed orange juice x 2

Fruit smoothies, breakfast burritos  (filled with skillet potatoes, bell peppers, onions, breakfast sausage and cheese)

Lemon blueberry pancakes, fruit salad

Morning muffins (new recipe, I’ll let you know if it’s tasty), fruit salad, cider

Toast with strawberry freezer jam, bananas, freshly squeezed orange juice

Easy breakfast casserole, blueberries, cider (I usually use a different casserole recipe, but thought I’d try give this easy and versatile one a go.  Will let you know how it goes.)


Leftovers x 2 plus fruit

Peanut butter and grandma’s peach jam sandwiches, apple slices, milk

My mom’s homemade-best-ever-potstickers

Dinner on the road

Leftovers Night


Bananas, apples, oranges, blueberries



Carrots, celery, broccoli, dip

What’s on your menu this week?  Anything new you are testing out for the new year?
