A taste of My menu

Menu Planning is near and dear to my heart. It is essential that I plan what we will be eating if I am to stay on my budget. My goal is to still eat a well balanced diet, while saving money. Menu planning helps me do that. It also saves me time, for those of you who think that it might take too much time to do. Time is the one thing I covet the most, being a busy mother of six children.

With that being said, here is a taste of what a typical weekly menu looks like in our house. If you are reading my new series on How I feed my family of 8 for $300 a month, menu planning is one thing I will be covering. So stay tuned!

Cheesy chicken vermicelli
Sauteed squash
Fresh herb bread

3 bean chili

Homemade garlic bread

Homemade chicken pot pie

Homemade pizza--->the kids love to make these!
Homemade breadsticks

Mini meatloaf patties
Braised radishes
Cheesy cauliflower casserole

Baked chicken
Potatoes baked in foil, topped with butter, onions, and bell peppers

I am going to be bookmarking your blog and coming to read your series on feeding your family of 8 for $300!! I need to feed a family of 7 and would love to find some more "shortcuts" to trimming my grocery budget!

Enjoy your week!
