At our house, we don't eat breakfast or lunch together during the week, so there is minimal planning that goes into those meals. For us, the focus is dinner.
Sunday Cereal Sandwiches Cheeseburgers
Monday Sloppy Joes
Wednesday Creamy Basil Chicken and Pasta (Macaroni Grill kit)
Thursday Potato Cheese Soup Beer Bread
Friday Cheese and Chicken Pizza
Saturday Cereal Sandwiches #54 / Burritos
Tonight, we took advantage of the warm Indian Summer weather and fired up the grill. We do still grill in the winter, just not as frequently or easily. On Saturday, #54 is the meal my husband orders at our Favorite Mexican Restaurant. I make a knock off version of it for him. The rest of us generally do burritos because his meal is a bit spicier than the kids prefer. The unknown in our schedule this week is a possible visit from my parents. If they come, they will be here for dinner on Friday and Saturday, which may influence our menu for one or both of the nights.
Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me. My son either packs or buys lunch at school. If he packs, it is generally a lunch meat sandwich or a PB&J with some sides.

I work full-time outside of the home, while being a full-time mom to
a 9 year old son and 6 year old daughter. I'm also a wife to my
husband of 13 years.
I started this blog shortly after I started CVS-ing. I was
reading about everyone's plans and successes, so I decided I wanted
someplace to share my money saving adventures. I'm working on adding
some regular "features" to the blog as well as continuing to share my
money saving adventures and participating in some recipe exchanges.
