Ok so here goes - my first real attempt at menu planning for the week! I am heading out for a much needed vacation on Saturday, so I figured the short week was a good opportunity to get my feet wet. I decided to try and keep track of the cost of dinners too - most of my recipes are 5 bucks or less so if I can do a week for $35 total, I'm in good shape. It's just another way to stay on point towards my goal! I did a lot of reading on other posters at Organizing Junkie and it seems there are as many ways to go about it as there are bloggers joining in!
So here goes...
Breakfasts: any mix of the following: oatmeal and fruit, cereal and fruit, frozen waffles with yogurt, or eggs and toast
Lunches: Sandwiches, soups or leftovers.
Sunday: Dinner at the in-laws!
Monday: Slow cooker London Broil with potatoes and carrots, cheese biscuits ($4.10)
Tuesday: Tacos with lettuce, tomato, peppers, sour cream and cheese ($6.50)Wednesday: Homemade pepper, onion and cheese pizza ($3.75)
Thursday: Chickpea stew with rice ($3.44)Friday: Chicken Stir Fry (chicken, straw mushrooms, water chestnuts, broccoli) and rice ($3.65)
