Menu Monday 8/29/11

Another week, another menu…I feed my family of four on a monthly budget of $300.  That budget includes any going out to eat, diapers for my son, and general household needs (toiletries, cat food, etc).  I wanted to post what we eat on a weekly basis to give you an idea (an asterisk indicates a new recipe I’m trying) :

Wow, it’s so different with the kids in school now.  I have been able to prep meals ahead of time, and am enjoying trying new things!  Unfortunately, the kids are kinda missing their usual foods…you know, the simple stuff.  So this week, I’m going to do a little of both…a compromise, if you will:


Monday – Sunday Leftovers, salad


Tuesday – * Cheeseburger Rice, fruit salad, carrots


Wednesday – Buttered noodles (for the kids, GF leftovers for me), Simple Chicken, fruit salad


Thursday – Mashed Potatoes, BBQ Meatballs, carrots, salad


Friday – *20 Minute Teriyaki Chicken and Rice, fruit salad

Saturday – Leftover night


Sunday – *Crockpot Scalloped Potatoes, salad
