Meal Plan Sunday- November 5th, 2012


Well, after not really having any time for much of anything on Mondays anymore, I've decided to start posting my meal plans on Sunday. I've started helping in Queenie's class all day on Monday, so mornings are a little more hectic. I need to make sure I'm ready for the day, plus get the kids ready for their day. So, Sundays will be menu posting days. I totally have to be honest and tell you that I haven't been menu planning at all, for over a month. And I've seen the affect on my grocery bills. Not to mention the various times we've eaten out in the last month..... just too much money is going to waste. And wouldn't you figure that my lack of planning has resulted in a VERY tight budget for groceries this week. With Halloween just past, rent, car/home insurance and gas $$ for Hubby's traveling to work, I need to be super creative with what I have in the house. We will have to get a bit of fresh produce, milk and bread; but the rest of the menu will consist of pantry and freezer items. So, let's see what I can come up with this week

  • homemade pigs in a blanket, with blue box mac n cheese and peas
  • Crockpot braised beef, with noodles and green beans (frozen)
  • Lemon Ginger Beef Stir Fry, with brown rice
  • Pork roast with potatoes, carrots and ruttabaga
  • Pork Taco soup (using leftover roast pork)
  • Cauliflower and Leek Soup with Roast Garlic Bread
  • leftovers
