Cooking on a Shoestring: Monday Meal Planning

Cooking on a Shoestring: Monday Meal Planning

Good Monday morning, friends!  Time to share our dinner plans for the week.  Meal planning is an important tool for stretching your budget.  Plan around food you have on hand, along with what’s on sale for the week.

Here’s what we’re eating this week.  How ’bout you?

Monday: Crock Pot boneless country-style ribs, au gratin potatoes, green beans, apple crisp for dessert  (we ended up not having this last week…the kids begged for grilled cheese one night, so why would I argue? 😉 )

Tuesday: Chicken nuggets, tater tots, and broccoli, cupcakes  (the birthday boy picked the menu for his special day…he’s 4, what can I say?  At least it’s easy!)

Wednesday: Trick-or-Treat party with friends–taking a pumpkin-shaped veggie tray

Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie

Friday:  Chili, corn bread, homemade applesauce

Saturday: Crock pot roast beef, mashed potatoes & gravy, veggies

Sunday: leftovers 🙂


Okay, your turn!  What’s on your meal plan for this week?  Any favorite time-saving tips you’d like to share?  Sound off in the comments below!
