As we head into a busy month it is so helpful to have a meal plan all set for our whole month. This month I kept our meals simple. I’m relying on easy recipes like curried lentils (which I accidentally put on our list twice!) rice and beans, and quiche. These meals use simple ingredients and are quick and easy to make.

I don’t plan our breakfasts and lunches. Our children are 12 and 14 and are pretty independent with these meals. I just make sure we have basic supplies on hand so they can help themselves.
What about Breakfast and Lunch?
Breakfast basics we keep on hand:
- Cottage Cheese
Hot breakfast meals I like to make occasionally:
Lunch basics we keep on hand:
- Lettuce and tomatoes
- Bread and wraps
- Tuna salad
- Chicken Salad
- Egg Salad
- Raman (if you have teens you probably have Raman Noodles in your house)
- Macaroni and Cheese
- Cut Vegetables and dip
