Menu Plan Monday

This week started out with the wrap up of birthday party weekend for my daughter. We had guests through lunch and took an easy out for dinner.

I decided that we really need to use up some of our stockpile to make sure we are getting good rotation, so this week we are eating what we have on hand. I did a quick stop to the grocery store today, where I spent under $20. I didn't really buy any meal items other than some Velveeta for Monday's dinner, some egg noodles for Tuesday and a TGIF Skillet Meal that was on sale, just for having on hand. The rest of my order was brownies, spices, and food coloring.

At our house, we don't eat breakfast or lunch together during the week, so there is minimal planning that goes into those meals. For us, the focus is dinner.

Donuts and Bagels
Leftover Turkey dinner
Pizza out

Chicken Sonora Pasta

Beef and Noodles



Cube Steaks and Rice

Out? Not decided yet.

Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me. My son either packs or buys lunch at school. If he packs, it is generally a lunch meat sandwich or a PB&J with some sides.
