Menu Plan {3.11-17}

I made sure to stock our fridge/pantry with grocery staples this week, in preparation for the coming days. I’ve put together a meal plan, but if our baby arrives soon, we’ll probably end up just pulling stuff from the freezer at various times. I made 1 1/2 gallons of yogurt last week, as well as a big batch of bread dough to simplify meals/snacks.

    Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to hear news of your newest little one!! I wanted to ask: when you make a big batch of bread dough in advance, do you freeze the dough or refrigerate it or what? I’ve been making an extra loaf of bread when I bake so I can put one in the freezer to have when we need it. But I’d love to have 2-3 batches ready so I don’t have to make it every week. Thanks!


  • I use the gluten-free bread recipe in the book “Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a Day,” which suggests refrigerating the dough (about 3-4 loaves’ worth). For a “regular” loaf of dough, I’m guessing you’d want to freeze them. :)

    Do you eat pork at all? How do you get green veggies into a picky eater? My daughter only wants to eat beans, bananas, cheese and bread! Help! I do not know what to do to ensure she is eating a well balanced, nourishing diet.

    We don’t have a good source for pork around here, so we just occasionally have some bacon. I don’t have picky eaters; they’ve been served a variety of foods their whole life, and really don’t get options. (Eat what you’re served.) :)
    Veggies get tucked into all sorts of recipes: dips, casseroles, soups/stews, quiches, omelets, meatloaf, curry, stir fry, salads, etc. The kids also love “finger food” plates that include raw veggies (sometimes dip makes it extra fun). :) They also like to help make their own sandwiches, chef salads, wraps/tacos, and pizzas.
