Menu Plan Monday (1/29/12) Freezer Foods

This week for Breakfast:

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Muffins (Gluten Free Pantry) with enjoy life chocolate chips

Gluten Free Waffles with scrambled eggs (Better Batter)

Lazy Granola and Yogurt (coconut and milk based yogurt)

Gluten Free Pancakes with scrambled eggs (Better Batter)

** Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins _YYYYUUUUMMMOO

For the pancakes and waffles I try to make a double batch and freeze them so I can cut my breakfast making time down! I try to do a breakfast with eggs on 'school' days so that preschool Veg has some extra energy!

For lunches, we are continuing our "homemade lunchables". The kids lunchables will be filled with homemade applesauce, lots of fresh fruit, gluten free/allergen free snack items, gluten free crackers with sunbutter (new soy allergy) and also gluten free sunbutter sammys!  I am also working hard to incorporate more raw veggies into lunch.  This week we will be eating carrots. :)

For dinners:
This week we are using mostly freezer meals.  Its the first time I've done a large batch of cooking.  I will say that I liked my grocery bill this week, since it was buying mainly fresh fruit and veggies as well as milks. :)
