December Meal Plans - Week 1 Review and Week 2 Meal Plan

The Week 1 meal plan  options were based on what I had on hand, in the fridge and freezer, including Thanksgiving leftovers:

December Week 1 Meal Plan Options:

Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch:  Milk rice and seeni sambol✓, fruit✓, scrambled egg and toast✓, French toast✓, pancakes, waffles✓, sandwiches✓(eaten as a tea time snack!)

Dinner:  Chicken "pie"✓, smoked sausage stir fry✓, cheese burgers, leftovers✓

Snacks/Desserts: Fruit✓, candied yam muffins✓, nuts✓  

Here's how it turned out to be:


Monday (November 30)
Brunch:  Stuffing waffle

Snacks/Dessert:  Tangerine, candied yam muffins

Well, that was a good week because I kept to the meal plan options for the most part!  The chicken pot pie gave me four servings and the smoked sausage stir fry made three servings (made with half a 14 oz. smoked sausage).  

On to Week 2!  I have some fresh produce in the fridge which are no longer all that fresh and need to be used up.  

December Week 2 Meal Plan Options:

Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch:  Stuffing Waffle (Monday), scrambled eggs and toast or hash browns, toast with peanut butter and jam, pancakes, sandwich, soup, salad.

Dinner:  Hamburger (Monday)/Cheese burger, chicken curry (with rice, cabbage, lentils, etc.), soup

Snacks/Desserts: Fruit, crackers with cheese or peanut butter, nuts, fish patties if I make some

What are you planning to make for your meals, this week?

  1. Currently, we don't have a plan, so that's why we had Subway last night. However, there was a deal to buy two and get one free, so it worked out well. In addition, we were able to order online so it was an easy pickup. Tonight you have inspired me to make a chicken pot pie.
