That pic above is of my favorite muffin in a mug. It’s the coffee cake for one by Rhonda Sue. *drool*

Okay! Moving right along to the menu. I’ve decided to just list 7 breakfasts, lunches and dinners, along with several snack ideas. I realized that people start their weeks on different days, eat more (or less) snacks than we do, and  run into a night where they just want to make Thursday’s dinner on Monday. So I’m hoping this new list format makes it easier to tweak and make your own!

Breakfasts

eggs and bacon or sausage (2x)

cereal for the kids and muffin in a mug for mom (2x)

thm pancakes (page 223) with berries

oatmeal with cinnamon and diced apples (brown sugar and walnuts on the kid’s, truvia on mom’s) 2x

 

Lunches
