Menu Plan Monday

I ran out to the store on Saturday as part of my errand running and again on Sunday, since the kids wanted donuts. On Saturday, the crowds were horrible, so I picked up only a few deals and things that I new I needed for this week. But, when I went back on Sunday and the store was less crazy, I took a little time and picked up some meat. The store was having a BOGO sale on value pack meat and I was able to get pork chops for 6 meals for under $12 and ground meat for 8 meals for about $15. Big spends, but not on a per meal basis. I also stocked up on some frozen bread sticks with pizza sauce for dipping (12 ct per pack). They were on sale for $1.99 and they had peelies on them for $.55 that when they doubled made them $.89 each.

At our house, the focus is on dinners. I tend to only list the main course and any standard side we have with it. We do still have vegetables and/or fruit with each of our dinners, I just don't always call them out.

Skyline Chili

Sloppy Joes


Chicken Fajitas (Tyson kit)

Breakfast for Dinner

Dinner at our favorite local Mexican


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.

I have to do a menu plan. I have no clue why I don't! When you make the plan do you pic the meals then buy the stuff or just use what you have or...?

Eli's Lids -

I do a bit of both. In part, I choose things we haven't had in a while and then I back fill with things that I have on hand. This way, I use up my stockpile and I can keep variety in the meals.
