Menu Plan for the week of April 20th, 2009
Menu Plan Monday is hosted at Orgjunkie!
Now that we are in a new, extremely busy phase of life with renovating a house and preparing for baby girl#2's arrival my meal planning has gotten very flexible! This week we've been to dr.'s appointments over 1 hour away at dinnertime, Daniel's been fixing our car or working on the house almost every night. The nice thing about having almost-free couponed convenience items on hand (like progresso soup) is that when weeks like this one happen we don't spend extra money on fast food. Especially since that would defeat the purpose of doing all this work on the house ourselves to save money$$$!
Breakfasts: Applesauce Raisin Bran Muffins, Sourdough Pancakes, Cinnamon Rolls
Lunches/Snacks: leftovers, fruit,white bean dip and tortillas, spicy popcorn (from Miserly Moms) cold cereal, carrot sticks and ranch dip, and if I have time today I am going to make Cheerio Breakfast Cookies, thanks to Grocery Cart Challenge for the recipe link!
M: Thai Noodle Meal(from Miserly Moms, but will add some leftover chicken to the recipe) and Salad
Tue: Slow cooker Split Pea soup using last week's ham bone and broth & sourdough rolls
Wed: Stir Fried Rice with lots of veggies and spicy pork (still haven't gotten to this one)
Th: Chicken Noodle Soup, biscuits OR Corndogs & Mac N cheese, carrots (these may be used any time this week since hubby will be spending most nights at the new house working and may need my help...so quick and easy!)
F: Over at friends' house for dinner!
(my parents are coming to help with the house this weekend, so I will be flexible with what they want to do/eat-so this is subject to changes:)
Sat: Pepperoni Pizzaand veggie sticks or salad
Sun: Fettucini Carbonara garlic bread, & peas OR tacos
What's on your menu this week?
