September 7 – September 12, 2010 (Late Edition)
Meals last week that were well received were the following:
Tilapia Almandine/ Veggie Mix – (P-337)
Grilled Shrimp Teriyaki
The school year has started and it is even more important for us to have a menu. It saves us time and money! We have more things to do each evening, so saving time on supper is a must.
This week’s menu is a pantry challenge!! I decided to delay getting groceries by one week. I am planning my meals around just what we have on hand. Truthfully, I could probably do this for two weeks. We have only gone to the gas station for milk. This is a great way to build up your grocery budget and save money! I only needed to spend less than $5 of our budgeted $100 this week, so I can bank this week’s money to stock up on meat when I find it on sale. I try to plan a pantry challenge menu at least every other month.
Here is what is on the menu this week at our house.
Tues – Roasted Chicken/ Angel Hair Pasta/Brussell Sprouts
Wed – Baked Potato bar
Thursday – Ham/Mac and Cheese/ Corn
Friday – Cheese Beef and Bean Tacos
Saturday – Lemon Honey Chicken/ Twice Baked Potatoes/Veggie
Sunday – Apricot Pork Chops/Buttered Noodles/ Veggie
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! Just remember that a bit of planning will sure make your week go smoother, giving you more free time and saving you money!
