Menu Plan Monday

I’m hoping to take advantage of a few sale items this week (strawberries and winter squash, in particular) to get some butternut squash muffins made…and some fresh strawberry-honey syrup into some cans!

Monday - Tuna BLTs

TuesdayChicken Caesar Pasta Salad from Mom Advice

Wednesday – Tomato Black Bean Barley Soup Recipe from Michelle

Thursday – A1 Beef Stew (Doubled to stash half in the freezer!)

Friday – Baked Chicken Spaghetti

Saturday – Leftovers or Sandwiches

Sunday - Grill for my birthday :)

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!

Thanks to Andrea at Mommy Snacks and Marcy at Stretching a Buck for posting the best deals and coupon matchups at my stores each week!

I am excited to see the recipe for the A-1 Beef Stew. I have lots of A-1 hanging around my pantry from some great sales!

those squash muffins sound great! I made sweet potato muffins recently, and greatly enjoyed them.

On Monday will be leftovers for 2 people and I’ll have pizza at a meeting where we are putting together bags, etc for our church women’s retreat coming up this next Friday. Tues-crockpot roast and potatoes or bread. Wed-maybe crockpot chicken. I need to make more broth so now I’ll have some. Thurs-leftovers or fishstix. Friday-Sat. leftovers or Phil eats canned clam chowder. Subject to change if I decide something else to make when I do more planning tomorrow. Have a good week and happy birthday next Sunday, Erin!!!! (new post with photos)
