Menu Plan Monday – October 5th

Menu Plan Monday

I’m hoping to spend $20-25 this week at the store.  When I couldn’t find space in the fridge and freezer to put away last week’s groceries, I thought it high time for a Pantry-Fridge-Freezer Challenge

With the exception of ground chuck (which is on sale for $1.67/lb this week!!!), I’ll just be buying the basics…produce, eggs, milk and bread.

So here’s the plan for this week’s Pantry-Fridge-Freezer Challenge

Monday – Beefy Mac Soup

Tuesday – Baked Italian Chicken

Wednesday – Beef Roast with Carrots from the Garden

Thursday – Baked Chicken Fingers

Friday – Breakfast Casserole with Fruit

Saturday – Spaghetti

Sunday – Leftovers or Sandwiches

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!

    Ooh, I can’t wait for Beefy Mac Soup. We are big fans of hamburger stew with or without pasta tossed in now that it’s starting to get chillier outside.

    One of my online twin mommies turned me onto this site today and already I have so many recipes I want to try. Thanks for doing this!!! Having 2 yr old twins limits my time in the kitchen and my brain to come up with new meals all the time!
