Cooking on a Shoestring: Monday Meal Planning


Cooking on a Shoestring: Monday Meal Planning

meal planning

It’s Monday–time to share our dinner-time game plans for the week!  A little effort with meal planning at the beginning of the week helps me to provide my family with nutritious, budget-friendly meals, and also allows me to get my act together when our family’s headed in several different directions.


Here’s my plan for this week:

Monday:  Chicken quesadillas, fresh fruit and veggies

Tuesday:  Ham, baked potatoes, broccoli

Wednesday:  Dinner at church

Thursday:  Chicken Broccoli Rice casserole

Friday:  Fish sticks and mac & cheese (by request from the kids)

Saturday:  Dinner out with my friends from high school–yay!

Sunday: Crock pot roast beef, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans

How about you–what’s on your menu this week?  Do you have any tips for meals on busy nights?  Join the conversation in the comments or on Facebook!
