Menu Plan Monday – September 22

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on September 21, 2008

This week is a tough one to plan, as we still do not have power! We were blessed to be able to use my mother in law’s kitchen all last week, and can continue to do so! It is waring, however! Also, my mom is coming in town this week, so I’m not sure what and where we will be eating. Nonetheless, I will still have a plan! I am planning a MAJOR Kroger run also…using up lots of good coupons they sent me in the mail a few weeks ago. I’m glad that I held onto them…as my bare fridge and freezer will need to be restocked!

Monday – Entree Vous Dinner with Rice and a Veggie
Tuesday – Oven Fried Drumsticks, Bread Machine Rolls, Veggie
Wednesday – Pesto Spaghetti and Veggie
Thursday – Honey Glazed Pork Chops (Crockpot), Sweet Potatoes, Peas
Friday – Out to Eat with Nana
Saturday – Birthday Dinner (Happy Birthday to Me!)
Sunday – Church Picnic, Bring Potato Salad

Oh how I have been looking for you!! I was just saying to a friend that I really need to cut back on my food budget. I spend too much each month and have been wanting to cut back. I am excited to explore your site and find some frugal recipes/tips. Thanks!!

I might actually plan a menu for the week!! I am so inspired =)

Ugh! Still no power? Hope you are able to get it back on soon.

Happy Early Birthday!!

Great looking menu!! Hope you are able to get the power on so you can cook in your kitchen again!

Do you have recipe for Honey Glazed Pork Chops. We bought a whole hog and have lots of pork to eat! Need all the recipes I can get.
Your menu looks good!

I hope you get power back soon. We got ours back Monday. My mom still doesn’t have hers. Makes meals difficult.

I’m going to have to check out some of your $5 dinners! There’s got to be a way to save money and still eat well.

I’m sorry that you are without power going into your second week. I sure hope you get back on soon.
