Simplify Your Homeschool’s Meals

5dayssimplifyhomeschool

After years of homeschool I have learned that the easier my homemaking tasks it allows me to spend more time on our homeschool. Homemaking is a priority to me so it want it to be done well.

Breakfast, Lunch & Snacks

Several years ago for my breakfast, lunches & snacks we set up a weekly meal plan. I have a weekly meal plan for lunch and breakfasts are the same each week. It is printed out and posted in our kitchen.

Breakfast:

  • Monday: Pancakes with fruit
  • Tuesday: Oatmeal
  • Wednesday: Corn Meal Mush
  • Thursday: Waffles
  • Friday: Bagels & Cream Cheese
  • Saturday: Homemade Cracker Barrel Breakfast

Lunch

  • Sandwiches, fruit & veggies (a couple of times)
  • Macaroni & Cheese , fruit & veggies
  • Corn Dogs, fruit & veggies
  • Burritos, fruit & veggies
  • Hot Dogs, fruit & veggies
  • Sunday:  Church Fellowship Lunch

Confession- I do not always eat what the kids eat, to maintain a healthy weight & sanity.

UPDATE: In order to make our mornings run more smoothly we still have a one week plan but I have switched to quick meals the kids can make: frozen waffles, instant oatmeal, instant grits, frozen pancakes and more. So I have kept the same format but changed the meals to quick choices and it has been working great for the last several weeks.

Dinners

I have done two things for dinners planning dinners bi-weekly and setting up a long range meal plan. When I say long range I mean about 6 weeks of meals. So every six weeks we start our meal plan again. If there is anything we didn’t like or want to add I adjust the meal plan and the grocery list. This allowed us to eat our favorites and after one planning session. I didn’t need to plan for meals for the rest of the year.
