So I'm doing Menu-Plan Monday again this week! It's so fun seeing what everyone has on their menus for the week. You can go on over to www.orgjunkie.com to see some more tasty menus!
This has been an interesting week for menu planning! My husband gets paid monthly, and we budget accordingly. But there are a couple of months of the year that have 5 weeks in them, and this is one of those months! I try to set aside a little bit of our monthly budget each month to allow for these longer months, but alas, I still find myself short. So this week is a major eat out of the pantry and freezer week! I managed to spend just $40 at the grocery store this week, getting only the absolute basics - milk, bread, butter, juice, bananas, cereal, etc. (all organic). The meals will be based on what I alread had in the house. So this is my pantry meal plan. :)
As usual, my menu runs from Saturday to Friday.
Saturday - Alphabet Tomato Soup & Biscuits (The kids loved this! I found some great organic alphabet pasta shapes a couple of weeks ago at the grocery store. On the back of the box was a recipe for alphabet tomato soup. It was delicious! I'll post it if I get the chance.
Sunday - Homemade pizza
Monday - Potato Kugel & Steamed Broccoli
Tuesday - Baked Beans & Perogies, Veggie Chick'n Nuggets for the kids
Wednesday - Yellow Split Pea Dahl (This is a new recipe - I had a bag of yellow split peas and didn't feel like making soup, so I thought I'd try something different. I'll let you know how it turns out!)
Thursday - Vegetarian Goulash
Friday - Millet Loaf, Mashed Potatoes & Corn (Another new recipe - I bought a bag of millet awhile back with good intentions but never made anything out of it! So this will be something new).
