Menu Plan Monday – July 26

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 25, 2010

We’ll be revisiting some favorite recipes this week…partly to clean out the pantry, use up my uber-cheap green peppers, and to eat a “Bargain Meal of the Week” meal that I’ll be making on my local Fox news on Monday morning!

Monday - Grilled Eggplant Panini

Tuesday – Stuffed Peppers from The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook

Wednesday – Grilling Guac Burgers with Friends

Thursday – Dinner out with the girls…”Psghetti for the Boys”

Friday – Honey Baked Lentils from The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook

Saturday – Slow Cooker Meal

Sunday - Grilling Chicken

I will post the recipes each night after I make the meal. If you see a meal you are interested in, please check back for the recipe later in the week!

I wish you posted more slow cooker meals, here in Texas we are burning up this year and it is just too hot to turn the stove on, so I have resorted to 4-5 meals a week in the slow cooker, just wish I knew more recipes and I always love yours

I was just thinking that today Lori! I have been doing so much grilling…and have thought little about the slow cooker! I’ll try to work a few in in the next few weeks!

Your Friday dish sounds great! I like to make a lentil and brown rice casserole with green beans and vegetable broth. It only has four ingredients, which makes it super cheap. It is also quite healthy.
