Another Monday, another meal plan. I don’t have a picture this week (I’m sure you guys are tired of looking at the same meal every time!), but I’ll try to have a good one for next week from one of this week’s meals.
Before I get to the menu, here’s how we did last week.
Last week was a bit odd. We fought excessive errands and a power outage, which put us eating out more often than I’d prefer. (We didn’t want to open the fridge during the power outage since I’d just gone shopping the day before. The last thing we wanted was to throw out $100 worth of food.) Despite eating out for 3 (or 4; I don’t remember) of the meals, I think we did okay sticking with our menu the rest of the time. The benefit is that I bought lots of chicken last week, so I won’t need quite as much this week, which will help this week’s budget, especially since I took that into account when choosing the meals and selected mostly chicken dishes.
Here’s what we’ll be eating this week:
Monday (today), lunch: We were out doing errands today – getting our passports! – so we just got sandwiches and chips from the grocery store.
Dinner: Since it’s currently after 4:00 p.m. and I’m typing a blog post instead of shopping or cooking, *laugh*, we’re going to have take and bake pizza.
Tuesday, lunch: Macaroni and Cheese
Dinner: Enchilada casserole, Mexican rice
Wednesday, lunch: Chili and Quesadillas
Thursday, lunch: Corn Chowder, Bread and butter
Dinner: Parmesan Chicken, angel hair pasta, steamed vegetables
Friday, lunch: French Bread Pizza
Dinner: Mongolian Beef and Broccoli over rice
Saturday, lunch: Grilled Cheese, fruit
Dinner: Honey Mustard Chicken, rice, steamed vegetables
Sunday, lunch: Crock-pot spaghetti (our tradition)
Dinner: Pineapple Cranberry Chicken, rice, steamed vegetables
So that’s what on tap for us this week. What are you eating?
