Meal Planning for Spring Break

This week’s meal plan is very make-ahead and low maintenance to allow the kids to play and Mom to stay out of the kitchen.

This week is a break from school at our house. The kids will continue with a few subjects (math and reading), but overall, we’ll kick it a little this week. Or should I say, they will.

I’ve got work to do!

I’m coming up on a cookbook deadline at the end of next month and have a TV appearance on Tuesday, so I’m going to be working a lot this week. The kids will sleep in, relax, and play with the neighbor kids, and I will hash away at my to-do list in the hopes of getting a lot done before school starts back after Easter.

That means I need to stay out of the kitchen — unless it’s for recipe testing. It’s the ultimate irony to feed my family take-out when I’m writing a book to help people eat at home. I’m trying to avoid that scenario wherever possible.

To do so, I’m leaning heavily on this “On the Go” meal plan that I shared last week on Life as MOM as well as this freezer breakfasts plan. I’m also making sure that I have a 3×7 meal plan for the week.

  1. Ooh a new book! How exciting! When do we get to hear more about it? Will it be more freezer cooking?

  2. We have homeschool state testing the first half of the week and then we’re taking our (much needed) spring break! I’m also happy to get back to meal planning…several weeks of morning sickness had me in survival mode. :)

    Hope you have a productive (and relaxing) week!
