Menu Plan Monday for Sept 5/11
I keep things as simple as I can around here. We are short on money and time so I am doing the best I can with what I have. This week I went to the store and spent about $50.00. That was Gator Aide for me to take to work, 4 boxes of Steak Ums *to stock up with at 5.00 a box, Milk, Bread, 4 doz eggs, Velveeta (cause it was 3.00), 2 packs of Juciey Juice Juice Boxes and thats basically all I can think of. I had the Family with me so it was a little stressful...LOL I love them but I dont think Family's are meant to go grocery shopping together....LOL
Meal wise for this week we are eating what is here...as you can tell from the little bit I bought at the grocery store. Last week we signed a Family Compact to NOT go out to eat for a month. Im not sure if I posted about this already or not, BUT we have stuck to it so far. One week down and 3 to go....I think I am going to do my best to go longer than that. We really need to start saving money around here and I know for a fact that going out to eat is where we waste it most at this house.
Ok here is my simple menu plan for this week all out of my freezer and pantry!!!
M- Stovetop meat balls (we did not eat them last week we had sandwiches instead), french fries and a spinach salad.
T- Shepard's Pie
Ground Beef cooked mixed with gravy and then corn, peas and mashed potato's layered on top YUMMY SIMPLE and CHEAP...LOL usually makes enough for Roger and I to take in our lunches too!
W- Grilled Chicken, julianne potato's, and green beans from our garden
Th- Salisbury Steak, noodles and peas
F- Cheese burger Macaroni
Ground beef cooked with minced onions in it mixed with macaroni's, ketchup and Velveeta
This too usually makes way more than we need so I freeze it up into single serve dishes for lunches
S- Lunch Leftovers
Dinner the kids are spending the night at my moms because....Sunday is our 13 year Wedding Anniversary!!! So hard to believe that we have been married that many years!!! It seems just like yesterday that we were in High School going to dances together and marching band events!!!!
So I have no idea what I am making yet!!!
S- kids are still with my mom so Ill play it by ear.
