Menu Plan Monday - September 27
I'm trying to avoid the grocery store until Friday - which is the first day of the new month and payday. The checkbook is a bit tight and most of our bills are due end of month. October happens to be a three paycheck month so hopefully we can work on getting a little ahead of ourselves before plunging into the holiday season.
My husband has been away since Thursday and my daughter and I attended our local Girl Scout Council's Camporee Camp Out over the weekend. I neglected to menu plan last week and it was HORRIBLE. I had a hard time coming up with ideas and felt that all I did was rush and not feed my family very well. Needless to say we are back on track this week.
Here's what I'm planning for dinner at our house this week:
Sunday - Breakfast for Supper
Monday - (Hubby is still away) - Corn Dog Muffins, Baked Beans, Carrots and Celery w/Ranch Dressing
Tuesday - (Soccer) - Thyme Pork Cutlets, Ritz Cracker Eggplant Casserole, Buttered Noodles, Green Beans
Wednesday - (Dance) - Crockpot Chicken Pot Pie, Salad
Thursday - London Broil with Bobby Flay's Fra Diavolo Sauce, Mashed Potatoes, Broccoli
Friday - Spaghetti and Meatballs w/Homemade Sauce, Eggplant Parmesean, Bread, Salad
Saturday - Dinner at my Aunt's house
Additionally I'd like to make the following items for snacks and for the freezer: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, Zucchini Bread, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and of course Spaghetti Sauce.
