Menu Plan Monday, December 31st

We have come to the last menu plan for the year of 2018. I can’t believe tomorrow it will be the new year. If one of your goals for this year is to eat at home more often, meal planning can make that happen.

See what’s cooking at our house this week below…

Menu plan with recipe links


For this last menu plan for the year of 2018 we are sticking with comfort food.

 This week our menu plan has some great comfort foods I love to make.

We will be having a snack type lunch this week along with a snack type dinner on New Year’s Eve. A snack type lunch is something  my kids love to have once in a while. We fill a plate with lunchmeat, cheese, cracker, fruit slice and vegetable sticks.

My son has certain things that he has to have on his plate for our snack lunch. One of the items is a piece of bread with butter on top, cut into 4 squares. It’s so simple but he loves it so much.

Most mornings our breakfasts will be our usual, toast and eggs. But on the weekends, I like to make something a little special for my family.

This weekend it will be our standby favorite, pancakes and then omelets which is my husband’s favorite breakfast.

If you have picky eaters, let them help plan the meals, it gives them a little control and can help them not be so picky at meals.

  1. I love the snack lunch idea! I will have to do that on a day I didn’t have anything planned to cook. We just picked up some spanish meats so with some cheese slices, olives and crusty bread, lunch is served! Hope you stop by and linkup with our Small Victories Sunday linkup open all week.

  2. My kids love having their sandwiches cut into 4 squares…for some reason, they just get so excited when there are 4 pieces on the plate. Who knew something so simple could make them so happy?

    I hope you have a wonderful New Year!
