Starting for December, we started planning our menus a little bit more regularly and consistently. The idea builds upon Kosher on a Budget’s November Meal Plan. But instead of doing the exact same thing every week, we settled on the same type of thing for each night. Read more here.
Our kids were actually dealt better with the meals when they knew what was coming up and could make a decision based upon the theme of the night. There is a lot of evening meetings in January, so I think we’ll need to figure out a lot easier meals.
For January, we are going to try to stick to this routine, but add one night besides Friday Night that will be of Variety.
Leftovers from Shabbat or Pizza
Mexican (Quesadillas, Burritos, Enchiladas)

We usually do Sandwiches for the kids as they are exhausted from the walk back and forth, especially when it’s cold and just need time to vedge.
For the adults, we have been doing deli and soup.
