It’s Large Family Meal Plan time. That’s right, It’s time for another episode in my Large Family Meals of the Week series. This week for Large Family Meals of the Week #6, I have a new schedule we are working on this week for this large family. Instead of starting out on a Monday, this week kicks off on a Tuesday. It will take some adjusting for sure.
Breakfast – I had some coffee, yogurt, and cheese sticks. The kids had a DIY breakfast of Rice Krispies and fruit.
Lunch – DIY lunch of cream cheese bagels, hard boiled eggs, blueberries, and raspberries for the kids. I had a large salad made with some iceberg lettuce, ham, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, and cucumbers. My full to the brim problem with cooking is the same when making salads. I always overflow the plate then have to put it in a bowl in order to add dressing.
Oh yeah, I’m still in my pajamas. Living my best life I tell ya!
Dinner – I made some tuna salad for the kids that were here. The ones still at dance can eat it later too. We had lots of veggies on the side per our usual. You can pair tuna with cheese and a variety of veggies for a quick, wholesome meal. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, add some ranch to dip those veggies in. We put ours on bread for some tuna salad sandwiches. Butter your bread before you put the tuna on. Sounds weird but it’s seriously life changing.
I may or may not still be in my pajamas. The world will never know.
Breakfast – I had three eggs, greek yogurt, and apple for a mid-morning snack. The kids had breakfast with Travis.
Lunch – We had some veggies that were already prepared so we made super salads on a sandwich. The kids have turkey, lettuce, pepperoni slices, mustard, and a slice of ham. With a side of fruit. I had a salad with Italian dressing, black forest ham, pepperoni, provolone cheese, cauliflower, broccoli, and lettuce. I wish I had some black olives for it.
Dinner – We had Creamy Baked Chicken Spaghetti Squash .
I was still feeling a bit congested this day, so I wanted to make some healthy chicken soup for comfort food.
Dinner – Chicken and rice soup made from the carcass of yesterday’s whole chicken, leftover veggies and other stuff.
This was our Aldi’s shopping day where the girls and I shopped for our weekly grocery haul and some filler items for the pantry. Pantry and freezer clean out is in progress so we don’t need a ton of stuff.
Dinner – Aldi’s pizza and ice cream because that’s what you eat on Aldi day and basketball practice.
Breakfast – Eggs with cheese
Dinner – Tacos as part of our large family cook with me series
We got about three to four inches of snow so we stayed home from church. A big breakfast was made so we could enjoy it while having church at the table. Of course, all this happens after I clean up from the hot chocolate explosion in the microwave.
Breakfast -meat and cheese scramble, bacon, and toast complimented with some hot chocolate and marshmallows.
Curious as to how I cook my bacon? I cook it in the oven on my bacon cooking sheets. Thanks to my awesome Youtube viewers who let me in on the secret to cooking lots of bacon in the oven, I now twist my bacon. This allows me to cook loads of bacon as well as get it in my mouth easier which is always a good thing. Yes and amen!
The kids’ egg scramble included cheese slices, milk, ham, turkey, and seasoning to taste. Travis and I had the same scramble but we added in some purple onion and peppers. In a #howJamerrilldoesit moment, I come close to overflowing the pan.
Hope you enjoyed a look into our large family meals of the week #6. Check out more Large Family Meal Plans here!
