Weekly Menu Plan
I didn't stick exactly to my menu plan last week - seems things always pop up at the last minute! But I am not giving up on menu-planning! It has saved my sanity plenty of times.
I am linking up to Menu Plan Monday!
Another very tight week in our household. Please don't get me wrong, we are so blessed, just having a lean moment! I'm using up absolutely everything we have in our cupboards and freezer this week!! Next time I grocery shop I want to load up on some healthier items, as I can see we are pretty carb-laden. I try and have at least one or two veggies with each meal.
MONDAY: Stuffed shells with cheesy-garlic pull-apart bread (We just had this and it was SO good! I made my own sauce out of what we had in the cupboards and it was quite good! Also, we used very inexpensive biscuits from Aldi, cheddar cheese I had left from tacos, garlic powder, and margarine - and it was still amazing!) Seasoned broccoli.
TUESDAY: Beef lo-mein with onion, garlic, carrots, broccoli, celery (made with Ramen noodles without the seasoning packet)
WEDNESDAY: Kids and I have dinner with my parents and sisters
THURSDAY: Creamy chicken and rice with broccoli
I will be shopping on Thursday, so we will have a few more options at this point! lol
FRIDAY: KID'S CHOICE - Breaded chicken tenders (made from chicken breast & Italian crumbs) baked "fries" (potatoes cut into wedges with olive oil and garlic and baked in the oven) with green beans and baby carrots
SATURDAY: Kids and I have dinner with my parents and sisters
SUNDAY: Ham and potatoes in the Crockpot with corn (I don't put the cheese in with the ham and potatoes, but i do add corn, it's really good! I also use Walmart or Aldi brand cream of mushroom)
BREAKFASTS: I won't lie - we're down to oatmeal or Thomas' Everything Bagel thins w/ an egg. Could be worse!! After Thursday there will be plenty to choose from :)
LUNCHES: Leftovers. Mac N Cheese w/ raw veggies. Stir-fried veggies w/ rice.
Have a blessed week!
