Menu planning has been difficult for me the past few weeks, but after a couple of crazy weeks with not a lot of food, I decided I had to meal plan.
I was tracking my grocery expenses as well for the month, working to stay on a certain budget, which I did quite well at thankfully!
Monday: BBQ chicken, egg noodles, coleslaw.
Tuesday: Leftover chicken, mashed potatoes/gravy, salad
Wednesday: Cream of Broccoli soup and Focaccia bread
Thursday: Chicken, broccoli, and pepper stir fry, rice and big salad
Friday: Cabbage Roll casserole
I may do this or do actual Cabbage rolls…I am unsure! = ) I want to do it in the crock pot.
Saturday: Ham and Cheese rolls, Potato soup, salad
Sunday: Dinner at church
Monday: Baked potatoes, BBQ beef in crock pot, Salad
Tuesday: BBQ beef on buns, Baked potato dip and dippers, salad
Wednesday: Potato soup, bread, salad- Bake for Harmony’s..and snacks for the week, zucchini bread, cookies, and bread.
Thursday: Shepherd’s pie
Friday:Baked Taquito’s, salad, Spanish rice
Saturday: Black Bean chili, cornbread, carrot sticks
Sunday: leftovers, popcorn
Monday: Crock pot roast, potatoes, and carrots with salad
So, yes, I got on a roll and planned more than one week! I will have to shop again next week, but only for a couple of the basics.
I am using my crock pot and rice cooker as much as I can to help save on time and planning on making snacks on Wednesday’s should help me.
