Menu Planning Monday: Week 3-4
It’s another week– and another week that I have planned out my meals.
When I do this, I always see a HUGE difference between how we ate and how much we spend on food for the month.
Menu planning and paring your menu with sales can save you at least 50% without using a single coupon! I also use my meal planner that helps me stay organized!
I forgot to post my menu for last week, so this is a 2 week menu:
Monday: Chicken Wings (broiled), Crunchy Broccoli, cranberry sauce, yams and a salad
Tuesday: Chicken Casserole (you can find the Easy and budget friendly chicken casserole here- I also added celery, squash and mushrooms to the recipe this time) * I made a huge pan of it to last for a few days. Added a salad and garlic bread
Friday: Pizza ( I splurged and spent $13 bucks) with Salad
Saturday: Taco Night
*I make lunches for my kids to take to school. For breakfast, we have waffles, pancakes, cold cereal or hot cereal. All things I have in pantry.
If you need some recipe ideas, be sure to check out what I have posted here!
Week 1/26- 2/1
Sunday: Chicken Wings (broiled), Homemade Mac& cheese, Mashed Potatoes, and Crunchy Broccoli.
Monday: Porkchops, mac & Cheese (left over from yesterday), cranberry sauce and fresh salad
Tuesday: Sloppy Joes with mashed potatoes, and fresh salad
Wednesday: Spaghetti with Kale, fresh salad, garlic bread
Thursday: Spaghetti with (or fettuccine) with homemade meatballs
Friday: Pizza (I am planning a grocery trip on Thursday to stock up on Pizzas)
Saturday: Free For All- which means it may be pizza, leftovers, breakfast, whatever we found around the house leftover from the week.
*unless noted- all of our meals cost me under $10 per meal. Many costing barely nothing. Like the Spaghetti with Kale. We grew Kale over the summer and froze it. Pasta is usually always free- .50 cents to buy.
