Large Family Meal Plan of the Week

Welcome back to the next edition of the Large Family Meal Plan of the Week! You know I love sharing large family meal plans here on LargeFamilyTable.com and over on YouTube. If you haven’t seen it already, my most popular large family meal plan of all time is when I shared this large family meal plan for the entire month!

Large Family Meal Planning

This is my third post in the Large Family Meal Plan of the Week which is a new series on YouTube where I’m sharing what I fed my large family of ten last week (you can watch last week’s large family meal plan #1 here). It doesn’t share what I’d planned to feed us. This large family meals of the week shares how our meals actually worked out. 😀

You can click here to watch Large Family Meals of the Week #3 | Friendsgiving, Homemade Waffles, Meal Planning on YouTube and see our large family freezer meals, fresh fruits and veggies, omelet scrambles, and even a couple of cheat and treat meals in action! (That “Buy Two, Get Two” pizza coupon came in handy this week! Can I get an Amen? And pumpkin pie for lunch? Yes, please!) And you can hear the saga of the broken dishwasher, because it’s always something, isn’t it?

Feeding a Large Family

This installment of Large Family Meal Plan of the Week covers from Monday morning through the following Sunday, and the roughly 21 meals that I fed my large family that week before Thanksgiving. I hope you can use some ideas from this large family meal plan to help you feed your people!


Breakfast – Yogurt smoothies, turkey rolls, grapes, and a couple of ripe cantaloupes that needed to fulfill their destiny, LOL!

Lunch – Pumpkin pie 😀

Dinner – Chicken Parmesan Freezer Meal


This Tuesday was our Friendsgiving celebration with one of our local homeschool groups. I didn’t get much recorded beyond the pumpkin pies, banana pudding (instant pudding mix and vanilla wafers for the win!), and a big pan of Ultimate Cookie Bars (from a mix from Aldi!)


Breakfast – Fried eggs and cottage cheese for the younger kids, and omelet scrambles with black forest ham and pepper jack cheese for the rest of us.

And hot chocolate, because it’s that time of the year!

Lunch – Lunch today was a salad on the go while out and about for piano lessons.

Dinner – Domino’s pizza night, thanks to a “Buy 2, Get 2” coupon! And you know this mama had some hot wings!


Breakfast – Homemade waffles, snow cream (see how we make it at the end of the waffle video!) And the kids all enjoyed some morning hot chocolate again! 😀

Lunch – Leftover chicken parmesan!

Dinner – I didn’t get what we ended up having for dinner this night recorded, but there’s a good bet it came out of the freezer! 😀


Breakfast – Hard boiled eggs & yogurt

Snacks – Apple slices with caramel dip

And that’s all I got recorded on Friday, but no worries, I definitely fed my people! 😀


Breakfast – Two dozen donuts & some good ol’ Nesquik chocolate milk

Lunch – Keto Balsamic Rosemary Beef Roast, fresh veggies with hummus and/or greek yogurt dip. We also enjoyed some berries with cool whip!

Dinner – Chicken in the Instant Pot, carrots and dip, applesauce


Breakfast – Yogurt and cheese sticks, because Sunday mornings are often too busy for real cooking.

Lunch – this day we enjoyed lunches that each of the kids packed in children’s church. What an unexpected blessing that turned out to be!

Dinner – This food blogger was preparing several Thanksgiving food posts and videos, so we all got to enjoy an extra full Thanksgiving meal! Turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, corn, stuffing, apple and pumpkin pie, and homemade cranberry sauce! Yum-m-m!
