Menu Plan for First week of Feb, 2010!

I will be cooking for 4 adults and one toddler for the next three weeks-I love it! I brought a ton of canned/dry goods over with me to offset the increased costs of living with my folks for the next bit and I plan to do most of our eating from the pantry.

My dad loves red meat so I have to have some of that in most meals so I am looking for deals there. Yesterday my dad and I swung by Safeway and found ground beef marked down for $1.50 for 3 lbs! $0.50/lb is amazing! So we bought two and left a dozen others for someone else (but those were marked $2.50 each for 3 lbs-still an amazing deal!)

Breakfasts:
cold cereal, pancakes, scrambled eggs with mix-ins, french toast, homemade donuts on Friday (for my birthday-anyone have a fool-proof homemade recipe?)

Lunches:Leftovers

Dinners:

Monday: Roast, acorn squash, carrots in the crockpot, bread & leftover salad

Tuesday: Leftovers, soup (parents at Bible study tonight)

Wednesday: Thai Peanut noodles with leftover roast on the side for dad, frozen broccoli

Thursday: Chili and Cornbread

Friday: Red Robin for my birthday (free birthday burger-yay!)

Saturday: Meatloaf from freezer, mac n cheese, peas

Sunday: Enchiladas, green beans

We love thai peanut noodles. It wouldn't occur to me to serve roast with it, but I'm sure your meat loving dad will appreciate the sentiment!
