Menu Plan Monday

Ok, I am going to try to keep up with this as it is very popular in the bloggy world and a very good idea I might add! I am still having trouble keeping my grocery budget down but am working on it. I don't need to get much for my dinners this week but I find I need to purchase a lot for breakfast and the kids lunches. I am hoping to try making snacks from scratch and weighing if the savings is worth the time.

My DH gets paid on Tuesday's so my menu goes from Tuesday to Monday:

Tuesday - Tuna Melts, Potato Wedges & Fruit
Wednesday - Smothered Pork Chops, Sweet Potatoes & Corn
Thursday - Ravoli, Salad & Bread
Friday - Crockpot Pork Roast, Rice & Broccli
Saturday - Sloppy Joe's, Mac N Cheese & Beans
Sunday - Oven Baked Drum Sticks, Potato Patties & Corn on the Cob
Monday - Burrito Casserole (new)

I tried to come up with 7 days of different breakfasts and here they are:
Microwave Omelets
Cinnamon Sugar Toast & Fruit
Egg and Cheese Sandwich
Cinnamon Rolls

I also tried to come up with some lunch box snacks:

Granola Bars
Crackers & Cheese
Dried Cereal
Fruit Roll-Ups/Snacks
Veggies (carrots)
Fruit (apples, grapes)

Well, this is what I've come up with for this week. See you again next week (hopefully)

  1. E~Mealz has a point counting dinner menu, so I've recently subscribed to that. I had let my subscription lapse and was doing terribly with my planning!

    I used to try and plan breakfasts too and finally realized that we are going to have cereal or oatmeal pretty much every morning. I'm not going to cook three meals a day; I'm just not. So breakfast gets the instant treatment.
