     Lunch:  Grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup
     Supper:  Spaghetti & meatballs and garlic bread

      Lunch:  Hot ham & cheese sandwich
     Supper:  Stew and homemade biscuits

Day 5:
     Breakfast:  Oatmeal
     Lunch:  Chicken noodle soup and turkey sandwich
     Supper:  Tater tot casserole

Day 6:
      Breakfast:  Bulls-eye (cut a circle out of a piece of bread, butter the toast and then crack an egg into the center fry in a hot skillet).
     Lunch:  PB & J sandwiches
     Supper:  BBQ Chicken, baked beans, rolls and peaches

Day 7:
     Breakfast:  Pancakes or biscuits and gravy
     Lunch:  Meatloaf

   With our breakfasts', we serve it with milk and some kind of fruit.
  Lunches are served with cubed cheese, pickles, and olives with a glass of V-8 Fusion to drink. 

We serve snacks in between meals and they consist of:  applesauce, yogurt, jell-o, carrots with ranch, bread/butter/sugar sandwich, granola bars, dry cereal, carrots and peanut butter, etc.

  2. Thanks for the comment. I will post the recipe in a minute. I went and checked out your page. I see we have a lot in common. My husband was in the USMC, we homeschool and we love the Lord too!
    Anyway, here is my recipe for french toast casserole.

    French Toast Casserole
    bread 4 eggs
    1 1/2 c. milk 1/4. c. sugar
    1/4 tsp. salt 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    3 tsp. cinnamon 1 T. melted butter/margarine
    1 tsp. nutmeg

    Turn on your oven and preheat it to 350 degrees. Spray a cake pan with cooking spray then line the bottom with whole pieces of bread. In a bowl, mix together the other ingredients and pour over the bread. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the bread with cinnamon and then place in the oven and cook for 45 minutes.
    Eat & enjoy!
