Sunday Meal Plan October 4-10 #Blogtober

 Meal Planning is a great way to save time and money, every week!




Welcome to the first Sunday Meal Plan post, from Mom, the Lunch Lady. I will be honest and say that I stopped meal planning when my SO and I moved in together about 2 yrs ago. While he isn't a picky eater, I was still trying to figure out his likes and dislikes. So our dinners often consisted of foods he was used to eating and I threw in easy meals when he was at work. Our work schedules are opposite, so during the week he is not home for dinner. 

Since the pandemic, I've noticed that I am spending more on groceries, and that I have a lot of food sitting in my pantry that I am not touching. Since I'm not sure when I will be returning to work (I've been off since March!) and money is a little tight, I though this would be the perfect time to start meal planning again. Plus I like having a list to choose from, instead of standing in front of the fridge at 5pm, hoping dinner will make itself. 

Here is the plan for this week



  • Chicken Cacciatore with Pasta
  • Crock Pot Ribs and Baked Potatoes, with corn on the cob
  • Eggplant Rollatini and Ceasar Salad


  • Leftover Fridge Clean Out
  • Cream of Broccoli Soup with Fresh Bread
  • Breakfast for dinner- Pancakes with fruit, and Breakfast Sausages

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
