Meal Planning Monday

Here is this weeks meals. I cooked a ham on Saturday so I am trying to use up. Yes, I know most people ate ham last week but since we raise hogs, ham really is not a treat for us.
I am trying a new recipe for split pea soup. I will post it, if it turns out well. I will also try to post my recipe for baked oatmeal. Mine is a little different than most, you make it up the night before and it has yogurt in it. I also have some desserts planned and will post them if I get them made.
boiled eggs and toast
cereal and muffins
yogurt and muffins
eggs and toast
baked oatmeal

tuna sandwiches
mac and cheese
lunch meat sandwiches, fruit, and chips
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches

split pea soup
baked potatoes topped with freezer chili
hamburgers and oven potatoes
tacos (cooking extra to freeze)
grilled cheese sandwiches

    Welcome. This is only my second week with MPM.

    Meal plan looks delicious. We usually make pancakes from a package. Are they really better homemade?

    You are super-organized! The menu sounds delicious.

  8. Pancakes- We like the homemade ones much better. I think they are also cheaper to make. I have even done a few homemade mixes. My favorite recipe though is the overnight one I listed on this week’s menu. It is so easy to make it up the night before and then cook in the morning. I no some say you can make the batter up and leave it in the fridge for a few days. I have tried that and we think it gets to much of a sour taste. This recipe does not do that since it is only overnight. I do keep some mix on hand though. Sometimes I do my grocery shopping very early on Saturdays. My 10 year old daughter will make pancakes using the mix on those days. She feels like she is so grown up making pancakes and the mixes make it easy for her.

  9. Welcome to MPM! Your menu sounds yummy. Have a great week!
