Monthly Meal Plans

October Monthly Meal Plan – with New Worksheets

Sharing is caring!

We did it, we made it through one of the busiest months. Our September was full of birthday celebrations and back-to-school prep. Now that we’re in October I can look forward to the holidays around the corner and start adding my favorite comfort foods into our monthly menu.

Last month I updated my Monthly Meal Planning Workbook. It has several new printable meal planning worksheets and a new cleaner design. You can find out all about the workbook here: Monthly Meal Planning Workbook.

Keeping our Breakfasts and Lunches simple

I’m in a stage where I don’t need to plan much for 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. In the summer I need to really keep some extra food on hand, especially for the 12-year-old; he is growing so fast and eats 5 meals a day!

We like to keep breakfast basics on hand like eggs, toast, pancake mix, oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, and berries.

Hot breakfast meals I like to make occasionally:

Lunch basics we keep on hand:

During the school year, the kids eat at school and I use ideas from my School Lunch Idea List HERE.

I do keep some basic lunch items on hand like lunchmeat, cheeses, bread or wraps, chicken salad, tuna salad, hardboiled eggs, soups, and frozen pizzas.
