Wow, it seems like forever since I posted meals. Actually for the 3 weeks that hubby has been home (after surgery), I haven't been making a meal plan. And boy have we suffered! Meals haven't been as great, and they are always later then normal, because I am out mowing or gardening or whatever, and then realize it is 6:30 and the boys are going to bed at 8.
So, I KNOW meal planning works for us!
And I am still excited about having my Internet back finally! Because I actually get to plan my grocery trip better this week. Hopefully I can do better, even though the last 2 weeks haven't been bad at all. And then I can post them again!
As most of you know, I am feeding 6 people. 2 adults and 4 little boys (8 years to 1 year). We drink milk like it is going out of style, and I try to keep a well balanced meal so we don't need as many snack foods around! So, here is our weekly meals:
Monday- Grilled Pork Chops, potato skins, (homemade) pasta salad
Tuesday- Cavatini and salad (lettuce)
Wednesday- Tuna Noodle Casserole
Thursday- Leftovers (we always have so many & a great way to save your family money is to make sure you eat ALL of the food, don't throw anything out that you don't have to!)
Friday- Pizza & Homemade potato chips
Saturday- Chicken (from Fundraiser, for our Children's Ministry), homemade potato salad, fresh fruit
Sunday- Crockpot Chicken and Veggies
Most of my meals are BELOW $5. I usually only buy meat on sale or marked down (2 days before their sell by date), and I shop sales and use coupons. On Thursdays, starting this week, I am going to be hosting a segment called $5 Dinners. This is where I will show you exactly how we do dinners for under $5. There will also be a chance for you to link up OR to leave a comment sharing with us how YOU do $5 Dinners. Come back and visit us then!
Have a great week!
