Menu Planning Monday: Using my stockpile!


From doing a bit of stockpiling the last week or two I am able to do this menu almost completely for nothing. I did have to buy a bit of meat(only because my freezer went out and I lost my chicken), and of course fresh fruits, veggies, and milk. This menu was just a little over $30.00. Since my budget is $75.00 a week, that leaves me about $45.00 to stock up even more with all the great grocery sales. You can see a few of the deals i've been getting here.

Breakfast:
Monday: Waffles and fruit
Tuesday: Baked oatmeal
Wednesday: Muffins and sausage
Thursday: eggs and biscuits
Friday: Pancakes and fruit
Saturday: Eggs, hashbrowns, and a meat
Sunday: Country ham and gravy over biscuits

Lunch:
Monday: Grilled hot dogs, homemade mac & cheese, and a veggie
Tuesday: Sandwiches and a veggie
Wednesday: Grilled chicken salad
Thursday: Grilled cheese sandwiches and fruit
Friday: Baked potatoes and vegetable plate
Sat and Sun: We either eat leftovers, or a salad, or sandwiches

Snacks:
Monday: Banana bread
Tuesday: Fruit
Wednesday: Homemade cookies
Thursday: Veggie and cheese tray
Friday: Tortilla wraps---> Filled with peanut butter, banana, and/or honey

Dinner:
Monday:
Chicken and stuffing
Corn
Yeast rolls

Tuesday:
Sloppy joes
Coleslaw

Wednesday:
Chili cheese enchiladas
Mexican rice

Thursday:
Chicken and stuffing
Corn
Yeast rolls

Friday:
Pizza
Cheese bread

Saturday:
BBQ at my sisters house

Sunday:
Roast
Potatoes and carrots
Salad

Looks wonderful - we've been using what we've got too - I keep telling my family that I'm not going to the grocery store until this weekend, so whatever we have (milk, etc.), they better make it last!!! :)
