Menu for a Trip

When I leave on a work trip I often plan a menu for the family for the days that I’m gone. Not because they aren’t capable of  figuring out what to eat on their own, they most definitely are, but we are a team and with one player gone everything gets a tiny bit harder so if thinking about what to eat is a non-issue then I feel like I’ve helped a little.

They often switch things up a bit depending on how their day is going, but at least they have something to work with.

Here’s the plan for an upcoming trip where I’ll be gone a week:

Monday
Breakfast: Pancakes
Lunch: Tuna Sandwiches and Steamed Vegetable
Supper: Slowcooker Beans and Ground Beef with Rice and Salad

Tuesday
Breakfast: Quesadillas
Lunch: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches and Fruit
Supper: Baked Potato Bar and Steamed Vegetables

Wednesday

Lunch: Quesadillas and Fruit

Lunch: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Fruit
Supper: Slowcooker Roast with Sweet Korean BBQ Sauce

Friday

Lunch: Tuna Salad with Tortilla Chips
Supper: Pepperoni Rice and Salad and Garlic Toast

Saturday

Sunday

Lunch: NA (donuts and snacks at church)

Monday

Phew! That’s it. We’ll see how it goes.
