Menu Plan Monday - March 8

We had a few plan changes during last week that affected my menu. The Turkey Pot Pie never got made and on Friday night we had beef stew instead of steak. So I’m bumping those two items into this week. I grocery shopped on Thursday last week (results here) and am going to need to go grab a few things this week as well. After reviewing the fliers and my pantry I think my only stop this week will be at Aldi. Since I spent more than I budgeted last week I’m going to keep this week’s list very short.

Here’s what we’re eating at our house this week:

Monday – Turkey Pot Pie, Salad

Tuesday – Grilled Chicken, Broccoli, Mashed Potatoes

Wednesday – Cheeseburgers, Baked Beans, Carrot Sticks

Thursday – Takeout Pizza (my birthday and dance lesson night)

Friday – Steak with Mushrooms and Onions, Roasted Potatoes, Green Beans

Saturday – Grownup birthday dinner out

Sunday – Dinner at my parents

For my birthday I’m requesting The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook: 200 Recipes for Quick, Delicious, and Nourishing Meals That Are Easy on the Budget and a Snap to Prepare, which I already previewed from the library. It has some great shopping tips and family friendly, frugal recipes. Also my husband once again has microwave access for lunches so that will be a great time and money saver – he can once again take leftovers!
