okay, I know I am a day late but dh is home sick and that changes my routine. Here is what on the menu this week:


cold cereal, oatmeal, toast with peanut butter or eggs and toast


leftovers or sandwiches


grilled cheese and soup
meatloaf, mashed potatoes and veggie
spaghetti with meatballs
slow cooker salsa chicken ( new recipe for us)
date night
homemade pizza


popcorn, pretzels, pumpkin bread

As you notice we eat that same sorts of meals each week. I seem to be in a rut. I will try to add a new recipe the next couple of weeks to see if I can't get some variety into our diet.

Week #11

I just didn't get around to meal planning this week. I wasn't feeling well and we just kinda made do and spent to much money on take out. Already working on next weeks plan. I have $10 of my food money left. This next week will be a pantry week. Hopefully I will not need much to make it work.

Week #10

Well it didn't take long to plan this weeks meals as I have no food money left and I must use what is in the house. Thanks goodness for my pantry. I had purchased extra slbl chicken breasts on sale last week as well as frozen pizzas as I was not home Friday night thru this afternoon. Dh didn't eat at home much while I was gone so most of the pizzas are left. Here is what is planned this week:


cold cereal, eggs and toast, waffles


leftovers, sandwiches


hot dogs and mac salad
whole chicken (in the crockpot), stuffing and veggie
chicken stir-fry (leftover chicken from above)
meatloaf, mashed potatoes, veggies
date night
pizza night
eat on the run


popcorn, fruit, pretzels

Recipes I want to try:

-chewy granola bars


-pumpkin bread
-banana bread

Week #9

The menu for this week just didn't happen. What I originally had planned just didn't work. The temps were just to high for some things on the menu. Will post this weeks soon.
