    • Wow! I’m really impressed. Breakfast, lunch and dinner planned! I’m just counting on leftovers! I did make granola this weekend though and we have oatmeal in the crockpot tonight so breakfast should be covered. I’m excited about this blog! Following you!

      @Amy Walker, Hi, Amy! Thanks so much for following! :)

      I love having leftovers, too. I usually include them as extra “sides” when I pack my husband’s lunches (or mix them into another meal). Many of the planned meals include meats/broths that were leftover from another meal. (For example, all the chicken dishes are from one chicken that I cook on Monday.)

      Yum- granola & oatmeal. Two of my favorite breakfasts! :) Putting oatmeal in the crockpot was a wonderful tip I learned from a friend during my early postpartum days. It’s so handy & delicious! :)

      Michele, I love what you do with your meal planning. My meal planning isn’t quite so extensive but I do meal plan too. I have to admit, it is exhasting to look at all of the homemade things that you are preparing for your family. I would love to do the same but don’t know if I have the energy! You’re doing a great job, you’re husband must be proud.

      @Brooke Clarke, Hi, Brooke,
      Let me know if there are any meal items/tips you’d like for me to elaborate on, to let you know how I get them done.

      I try to mainly cook at the beginning of the week, and use leftovers for other meals throughout the week. I do make sure to bake our gluten-free breads (there aren’t any available to purchase in our small town, anyway.)

      It’s definitely a routine I’ve developed gradually, not something that has become exhausting. Take it in “baby steps”! :)

      Your new blog is so pretty! Can I just copy your menu plan?? That would make my life so much easier! Thanks so much for all the wonderful tips Michele. I’m going to make your millet and cheese casserole this week and see if my son (who LOVES mac and cheese) will make the switch! I would love to meet you someday. You have been such an encouragement to me!

      @Laurie Case, Thanks, Laurie! :)
      You’re welcome to copy any of my menu plans!
      Hope you like the millet! Cheesy brown rice is fun, too.


    • Your menus always look so good. I’m going to have to come back here for more inspiration! Especially Thurs night, that looks yummy.


    • […] I posted our week of chicken meals last week, many of you commented on the “work” of my “from scratch” meals. […]
