Weekly Menu Planning #2
It's week 2 already. I guess this year is going to try to fly by me too. While I might not be able to control time, at least I will be organized and frugal as possible.
The house is finally back to normal schedules and the older kids are gone. So hopefully my grocery budget will creep back down. The bad news is I am $15.79 over budget this week and for week one $22.34 bringing my negative total to $38.13. BOOO!!!! I keep telling myself it isn't too bad considering we had New Years Eve and company.
Now back to regular life! Phew!
I am dusting off some family favorites this week. My family got neglected in the weeks leading up to the holidays due to my busy baking season. So this is our menu this week.
Parmesan Crusted Talipia
Cheesy Corn casserole
Spinach salad with lemon vinaigrette
Homemade Pizza with whole wheat crust
Pepperoni for the kids
Canadian bacon with pineapple and jalapenos for hubby and I
Leftover night (Probably Wednesday)
Ham and beans with homemade cornbread
(made with yummy ham bone from the holidays)
Soup and salad (french onion and some crusty bread)
One night for sure we will be running around like maniacs and just forage through the refrigerator. Does anyone else do that? Oops. told on myself!
So that's the week in food. What's cookin' in your neck of the woods? Have a wonderfully frugal week!!!
I just wanted to add that I will be linking up with Susie at SusieQTpies Scraps of Life for Menu Planning Monday. I just love her blog and am so glad I found it. Go check her out!
