Skidding in here a bit tardily on a very late Monday afternoon to post my Menu Plan Monday menus; so late, in fact, that tonight's dinner is simmering away on the stove as I type. And boy, does it smell good! I'll tell you what it is in just a minute.
The theme for this week's meals is Cheap and Even Cheaper. Last week was our spring break, and we elected to use some of our grocery money to have some treats, like the Redbox movie rentals I mentioned, plus lunch at Panera one day and some ice cream cones interspersed throughout our week. Planned beforehand, we can still eat very yummily, if not fancily.
Menu Plan for the Week of April 12, 2010
Monday - 16 Bean Soup and Skillet-Baked Cornbread
Tuesday - Refried Bean Quesadillas and tortilla chips with queso sauce
Wednesday - Beanie-Weenies and Velveeta Shells-n-Cheese
Thursday - Baked Spaghetti (leftover from Saturday and dressed up with mozzarella and pepperoni)
Friday - A trip to some restaurant that features a dollar menu. (The girls are going to a teen gathering from 6:00 - 9:00 and we'll be driving.)
On Saturday evening we had spaghetti and my homemade meat sauce with breadsticks and on Sunday we had patty melts (a very guilty pleasure), homemade potato salad and chips.
