Menu Planning for Large Families

Homemade Pizza

Hamburgers/hotdogs/fries/tater tots


**Side note for these two meals, I will thaw out a chuck roast and then I will thinly slice 1/2 of it for the chinese (add lots of peppers, onions, water chestnuts, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, snow peas) and then I will chunk up, in bite sized pieces for the beef stew (I add a bag of carrots, a couple of potatoes, celery) to make it filling

Beef Stew

Spaghetti/french bread

Chili/Tacos (I can never do just one pot of soup…I have to have 2 pots of the same soup or two different pots of soup to fill up my family (makes for lunch for a few the next day, as well)…but I have discovered that chili and tacos meld well and the kids are thrilled and it is filling)

Loaded Baked Potato and Chicken Casserole/Green bean casserole/Corn


For Big Daddy, who is beginning his healthy lifestyle eating, I’m making him lunches:





Chicken slices/cheese/almonds

Sweet potato chips

Kale chips

Cottage cheese/pineapple

Homemade Yogurt

Crockpot overnight maple/brown sugar oatmeal

Homemade Granola

Homemade Trail Mix

This is our journey of adoption, love, homeschooling and living life to the fullest.....even if we do live in chaos (can't have anyone over syndrome).
