Menu Plan: 3/6 - Lent: Simple Menus, More Time for God

Menu plans for the next few weeks will be pretty simple. We are beginning Lent and, for me, this is a time for some sacrifice and prayerful focus. Less money spent means more available to give. Less time in the kitchen and stores means more time for prayer and reflection. For this season, this works for me...

Here's what's hittin' our table:


B-Cereal, Yogurt, Juice
L-Breakfast Burritos, Grapes, Juice
D-Ravioli, Broccoli


B-Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
L-P,B,&J, Oranges, Pretzels, Water

B-Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins, Cheese, Juice
L-Katie's Homemade Hamburger Helper, Corn, Milk
D-Lemon Pepper Chicken, Carrots

Wednesday: (Ash Wednesday- I will be fasting.)

L-Jelly & Cheese Sandwiches, Peach Jello, Water
D-Garlicky Clams Linguine


B-Jelly Toast, Cheese, Juice

B-Smoothies, Fruit
L-Cheesy Beans & Rice, Water
D-Mushroom & Onion Pizza w/ Goat Cheese*


B-Scrambled Eggs w/ Cheese, Toast
L-Grilled Cheese, Fruit
D-Poor Man's Chicken Parm Sandwiches w/ Peppers

*All pizzas on our menu plans from now until Easter will be MEATLESS in keeping with our Catholic tradition.

How about you? Will you be doing anything differently during Lent?
