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
