Menu Monday

I have been making a dinner menu for several months now.  I actually make a menu and buy groceries for two weeks at a time but I am only posting one week.  I was able to cut more than $300 off of my monthly grocery budget by planning dinner menus.  It blew me away at how effective it is and easy.  I don’t have to worry about having what I need to make dinner and I can easily switch up days if I need to.  Here is the menu for this coming week. 


Monday- Crock Pot roast, sweet potato caserole, green beans

Tuesday- BBQ Chicken on the grill, potato salad, corn

Wednesday-Beef Stew

Thursday- Sloppy joes, asparagus, black eyed peas, pineapple

Friday- Turkey noodle bake , pinto beans, greens

Saturday- Honey is taking me out to eat.  Woo Hoo!

Actually I just did a post on having “Irish Twins” as my youngest are only a year apart. I love what you said about it not being about breeding, but about relationships! Have a wonderful week!! 🙂
