Menu Plan Monday: Harvest Term Begins

posted in: extra 0

simple easy homemade family menu plan

We completed a 5-week summer term, took a break week last week, and now we start our harvest term with freshly purchased pencils and the sound of the school bus rumbling down the street.

I adjusted my menu plan during the break week. I wanted to make sure breakfasts were getting everyone solid “brain food” with enough fats and protein and not simply carbs. I’m hoping it will help with coping and stamina.


  • Breakfast: weekend leftovers (cinnamon rolls or frozen pancakes, toasted) with eggs
  • Lunch: pbj on rolls
  • Dinner: grilled chicken, grilled bread, grilled zucchini


beef potato hash


Welcome Home Wednesdays

  • Breakfast: baked cinnamon French toast
  • Lunch: picnic! rolls, cheese, salami, garden veggies
  • Dinner: egg, canadian bacon, & cheese sandwiches on homemade English muffins


german pancakes

  • Breakfast: German pancakes
  • Lunch: baked rice w/ butter
  • Dinner: homemade pizza (no-carb pizza for me)


homeschool lunch ideas


  • Breakfast: pancakes from scratch, made by Daddy, with homemade syrup
  • Lunch: bits and pieces (clean out the fridge)
  • Dinner: home-grilled hamburgers, watermelon


  • Breakfast: Whole-wheat cinnamon rolls

All meals only involve ingredients on my basic master pantry list.
