Menu Plan Monday - August 3rd

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)

Welcome to meal planning. I like that you also list the cost with your meals. I try to do this as well (figure the cost, but I don't always list it). Have a great week!

Great menu. I should start keeping track of what our meals cost us. Good idea!

Welcome, your menu sounds yummy! I also like the idea of tallying the cost of meals. I do it in my head most times, but it would be great to have it written down next to my go to meals as a reminder.
