    I did my big shop today as well as planned meals from now till New Years. I did things a bit differently, because I dont know the kids plans each day yet.. so I decided on a set number of meal.. bought the ingredients needed and we will have whatever works best of whichever day it is needed. Here is a basic idea. Take notice of all the comfort meals... I am in mothering mode again.

    Breakfast options.
    oatmeal..using often

    monkey bread Made for dessert on Tuesday and having it with fruit for breakfast , only used half the sugar it called for.. no one noticed.
    baked donut holes
    eggs/bacon today
    creamed chipped beef had as a late lunch
    waffles yum
    pancakes. yum
    DH and I went out to breakfast yesterday and I have a sorority breakfast tomorrow.

    Lunch options

    grilled pork chops, perogies, corn.
    Haluski... DS fav!.. Yum!
    meatloaf , homemade mac and cheese, string beans.
    pork and sauerkraut.. going to have this before NYE because of DS and DH traveling to take DS to catch flight for Dominican.. not the best thing to eat before a long car ride.. or flight. Didnt have.. will make when DH and DD return from trip
    bque chicken, baked potatoes, baked beans.
    shrimp, oven fries, salad.
    potato soup and garlic cheese biscuits
    leftovers lots of these
    Take out pizza.. grocery store party pizza $10!!!! Never did have.. saved that $10
    Christmas eve.. meat and cheese tray, macaroni salad, broccoli salad, cookies, fruit tray, and what others are bringing.
    Christmas Day.. making homemade rolls and pull apart herb bread to take to dinner as well as strawberry pretzel salad.
    We had roast beef in crockpot.. mashed potatoes and corn.. forgot to add it to this menu.

    attended a movie night party at a friends last night and the appetizers ( plenty!) were our supper. We are so full from holiday.

    snacks..

    Holy moly!!!! I'm impressed. I don't think I could plan all that out like that. Or have the room to store it all.

    WOW

    I didnt cook it all at once... So the storing isnt that hard. We do have an extra fridge down in our basement that we use around the holidays when absolutely necessary. It isnt the most energy efficient thing.. but it works in a pinch.

    I am in the process of making turkey pot pie now... smells soooooo good.
