Menu Monday: Cheap, Easy, Frugal

February 23, 2009



Well it definitely was a busy week last week but I did get my menu planning done. How do I approach my menu planning? First it has to be fast and fairly easy. I now get home at 6 pm and want to be able to put dinner on the table within 45 minutes. I also want it to be inexpensive and healthy. If you look over at my goals you can see that 2 of my goals losing weight and saving money make me a very aware shopper. This week some really good buys I took advantage of included buying wholewheat pasta for less then $1 a box, 10 boneless chicken breast for less then $10, pancake mix for $1.99, 2 family size boxes of cereal for $7, and tomato sauce for less then $1 a can. For me I have to flyer shop and combine that will coupons.

So what is on the Menu this week.

On Monday we are having  Easy Chicken Cacciatore and salad..It is storming here so it will be a nice fast dinner after a yucky day.

On Tuesday it is National Pancake Day so of course we will be having Pancakes!

On Wednesday I will be using my slow cooker and make Chicken Chili .

On Thursday it will be fast and easy as well Chicken Nuggets, Fries, and corn.

On Friday it is Taco time.

On Saturday we will clean out the fridge of leftovers.

On Sunday my mom and her friend are coming for dinner so I’m making Mushroom Pot Roast, red potatoes, and carrots.

Now I off to Organizing Junkie to see what is on the menu for others.
