Menu Plan for September 28 – October 3




This is my first time to participate in Menu Plan Monday!  Yay!

I don’t particularly care for the menu planning process but it is necessary for me and my family.  If I go into the store without a plan, I will come out spending big $$ and I have no idea what I’m going to cook.  So I try to plan my menus two weeks at a time… that way I don’t have to do it quite so often!  ;0)  Now if I could just get organized enough to do it  once monthly or less often that would be great!

This week’s menu:

Monday – To Die for Crock Pot Roast, green beans, broccoli, rice and gravy

Tuesday – Potato Soup with turkey bacon, lettuce,  & tomato sandwiches

Wednesday – Crockpot Chicken and Noodles, salad, green beans, and possibly homemade rolls (if I find time to make them)

Thursday – Red Beans & Rice with sausage, cornbread, fruit salad

Friday – Spaghetti with meat sauce, veggies, salad, and garlic bread

Saturday – Oven Fried Chicken Chimichangas, salad, corn

Next week, I will be trying to reduce our grocery budget as I menu plan.  Right now we spend about $100 - $120 a week for seven people.  So I’m going to shoot for $75 - $100 as I plan next week.  I’m always up for a challenge!
