Now here’s something I haven’t made for several months:
Caramel Popcorn isn’t something I think of to make for a treat in the summertime. Now that it’s fall, it seems perfect. I’m making a huge batch to serve the teens tonight who are coming for Bible study. Easy, inexpensive, filling, and fun!
Speaking of something I don’t think to make very often…I rarely think to make breakfast for lunch or dinner. Why not? I have no idea. It’s easy, it’s inexpensive (usually), and it doesn’t take much time. I decided that today for our Sunday Dinner, we would have pancakes and bacon. No one will complain, I guarantee you that. :) Do you have breakfast for dinner very often?

Get free fall menu planners here and here. We’re working on designing new and different planners to use with different methods of menu planning. Watch for those later this week!
Well, one of my friends just gave us some happy chicken eggs, so we’re having over easy eggs in tortillas a lot. For lunch, for dinner, whenever.
This week I’m going to try the noodles my hubby requested again – apparently, I made them wrong last week. I’m learning! They’re supposed to be stir fried, not just cooked… oops. :-)
We often have waffles made with freshly ground flour on Sunday nights – our syrup is berries, spinach, chia seeds, and maple syrup for sweetener blended in a vitamix. Kids love it and it’s nutritious! And easy for parents!
We love breakfast for dinner! I dad topped meal planning because there are only 3 of us. I find it easier and more fun to keep a variety of ingredients and decide that day. I do plan ahead for busy days. I need to do some freezer cooking for migraine days. If I had a large family I would definitely meal plan! It just makes more work for me in my situation though!
We have breakfast for dinner every Sunday. It’s an easy thing for me to make on a day I want to rest, and the kids love breakfast foods. Plus, it gives me an opportunity to make breakfast-y things that we don’t have time for on weekday mornings.

We have breakfast for dinner every Sunday night. Its easy so I can relax on Sunday afternoon and still have dinner ready quickly.
A note about those giant breakfast cookies listed on Friday – I have been making them for a couple of years – it is one of the few “frozen” make-ahead items that my 14-yr-old son will grab from the freezer and eat for breakfast. He won’t reheat a muffin, or a pancake or waffle, but he will reheat these “cookies”. Thanks for the recipe!
We have breakfast for dinner at least once a week. I LOVE breakfast food! It’s usually the night when our kids eat best too…wonder why? ;)

Could you share your recipe for tater tot casserole – I have not made it since we started eating healthy. Thanks
I rarely make Tater Tot Casserole anymore because it’s not the best for us. Since I was cooking for a large crowd of teens I knew would like this, I compromised. I browned meat with onion, made a white sauce, added cooked rice and green beans, a little sour cream, then topped it with cheese and tots. Easy and filling!
