Thank you for starting this thread and for posting the link.
I'm going to be starting my 20th and final year of homeschooling in just a couple of more weeks. My oldest is a college graduate with a BS in Math. I started homeschooling him way back in 1989. Now my youngest will be a senior this year and I'm excited and sad all at the same time -
Our whole family has been McDougalling for about 5 years. We pretty much eat the same things week after week, so it's easy for me to share my menu with you all:
Breakfast is usually one of the following, in addition to fruit:
oven baked fries
oatmeal or steel cut oats
whole grain cereal - kind of a mix of oats, raisens, dates, shredded wheat
whole wheat pancakes (usually on Sunday)
Peanut butter or almond butter with all fruit spread
Baked potatoes and a vegetable
Macaroni with nutritional yeast cheese sauce
Leftovers from dinner nite before
Soups and stews in the winter (a favorite)
Always a steamed vegetable or large salad with the works, and then either a potato, pasta or rice dish.
Some favorites are:
Black bean sloppy joes
Pasta with marinara
And again, I rely on soups and stews in the winter with a salad, and maybe some cornbread or brown bread to go along.
I shop once a week at Stater Bros. and once a week at Sprouts. I don't really write down a menu for the week, but I usually have in mind what I want to do and then go with the flow of the week. If I've had a real busy day or am tired, I always opt for the easiest for me to prepare which is a salad and potatoes.
I'll look forward to hearing from other homeschooling moms out there!
