I also make extra pancakes and french toast, but I don't freeze them.  I put them in a ziploc bag in the fridge and the kids eat them the next day, so freezing isn't necessary in our house :)  I also like to make the pancakes with a scoop of protein powder or a few extra eggs for protein.

The past 2 weeks I am trying something new with meal planning.  I have made a one-month meal plan, using a blank calendar page.  I planned out breakfast and lunch to be the same each week (Monday is pancake day, Tuesady is eggs, etc).  Then dinner I alternated weeks, so weeks one and three are the same, and weeks two and four are the same.  THat way I can buy some food in bulk and use it up over the month.  This has made my shopping and planning much easier so far.
