Menu Plan Monday – November 10

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 9, 2008


This week is a Pantry Challenge Week for me! Perhaps this is an old concept for some of you, but it’s new to me! I have a very short grocery list for the next 2 weeks…mainly bread, produce and yogurt. And perhaps I’ll take advantage of the Kroger Mix and Match sale one more time! I did pretty well last week (saved $130!), but I don’t plan to get near as much this week! Goal: $35 or less…

Monday – Lentil Meatloaf

Tuesday – Mango Chicken

Wednesday – Fish, Potatoes and Squash

Thursday – Chickpea Stew

Friday – Pronto Beef and Rice (Thanks Peggyann!)

Saturday – Hubs in the Kitchen!

Sunday – Birthday Party

THAI DINNER GIVEAWAY! Be sure to enter the Thai Kitchen Dinner Giveaway! Contest will close at 11 am EST on Wednesday, November 12th. Simple…just leave a comment for your chance to win!

I will be out of town this coming weekend…running a half marathon with my sister on Sunday morning…so Hubs is going to take the $5 Dinner Challenge on Saturday night!!! Can he do it? Stay tuned to find out!!!
