Menu Plan Monday

Once again its time for me to sit down and plan my meals for the week. I sat down yesterday and went through cookbooks. My dh and I are trying to really buckle down this year and not spend so much, so I am doing my part by keeping the food budget down. So looking for new easy and inexpensive ideas. Here is our meals for the week. Looking forward to checking everyone else's out to get some inspiration!

Monday: Taco Grande, black beans and corn
Tuesday: Bacon ravioli, fresh green beans, garlic bread
Wednesday: Minestrone soup, corn bread
Thursday: Crispy chicken, baked potatoes, apple/carrot salad
Friday: pizza
Saturday: Meatball sandwiches, baked french fries -never made these last week.
Sunday: Dh will be somewhere watching the game, so probably pancakes and sausage, fruit

That is it, oh and I have never been a fan of low fat, cheeses or anything, but we are going to make a conscious effort to use low fat versions of things to make them a little healthier for everyone. I make a lot of casseroles and we eat a lot of cheese so that is one small step towards healthier living.
Check out Laura over at for more menu planning... Have a great week!!

Hi Heather, I'm an Ohio girl too. Good luck with the budget. I came home from the Grocery Saturday and asked my Hubby is he had a second choice for his Orange Juice. He promised to ration it and to prevent the boys from drinking big glasses of it. I guess I need to keep more Kool Aid around.
