Menu Plan Monday – September 8th

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on September 7, 2008

Monday – Tilapia
Tuesday – Pork Roast and Potatoes (The leftover pork from this meal will become the pulled pork on Friday!)
Wednesday – Entree Vous Dinner**
Saturday – Homemade Pizza
Sunday – Grill Burgers and Eat out on the Patio!
**I got a coupon for Entree Vous in a recent mailer. BOGO! It expires next week, so I thought I would try it out…This is how I figure it…I will get 2 meals for $19.99 (no tax on food to go in Ohio!). The meals serves 4-6 adults. This means that I can use 1 meal 2 times. Bringing the 4 meals just under $5 each. I will add a cheap veggie or fruit to complement the dish. So for just over $5 we can get 4 ready made and healthy meals from Entree Vous!
Happy Cooking this Week!

I’m loving your blog. You inspire me. I try to keep things cheap, but I hardly ever actually breakdown the cost of a meal… may have to start that! :-)

I’m thinking of starting a site review, once a week, on my blog. I’d love to start with you!

Oh, yes, and I love the song, If You Want Me To, which is playing on your blog right now… :-) and Legacy too!

OK, your pizza boats were a HUGE HIT at my house. This week will be the wraps. Um, next week? The taco mac & cheese. Looks like I'll just be picking one of your recipes every week! Thanks!

Have a delicious week!

I agree with Erica M. I'm also loving your blog! Together with my husband we have 5 kids total & thinking about adding number 6, so the idea of saving some dollars is even more appealing to me!!
The taco macaroni & cheese sounds yummy!!!

Have a great week!

I love pulled pork sandwiches. They are delicious and so easy!

So glad I found your blog via MPM! I am adding your button to my blog, as it is a blog pretty much devoted to taking care of your family as frugally as possible. I am so going to be a regular reader! Love the pork roast recipe, I adore pork roast!

Great menu! I love being able to use leftovers for something completely different. Dh is always amazed with what I come up with. LOL! The Entre Vous sounds intriguing. We have places like that here, but I haven’t ever tried it.
