Menu Planning Monday


We are continuing our budget minded meal plans and eating. No eating out since January! With that in mind I need to feed my freezer (FTF) again. This week I will be making some soups, chili, pancakes and waffles so that I have quick and easy meals on hand for those days that take out sounds so tempting!

Monday - roast in the crockpot with carrots, celery & onions, fresh basked whole wheat biscuits (probably this recipe with soymilk for the milk)

Tuesday - beef & vegetable barley soup using leftovers from Monday, spinach salad, bread or biscuits

Wednesday - big pot of black bean and beef chili (FTF), cornbread, veggies & dip

Thursday - something special? Look for some tempting ingredients at Costco - even a nice steak and asparagus would be cheaper than going out!

Friday - breakfast for dinner - whole wheat/flax waffles (FTF), eggs scrambled with spinach, sausage, sliced fruit

Saturday - pumpkin pancakes (FTF)
vegetable bean soup
chicken thighs, baked potatoes, broccoli

Sunday - breakfast casserole
tilapia, spinach, orzo pilaf

Baking for this week -
Granola bars (modify last week's recipe)
whole wheat bread

Breakfasts -
baked goods
breakfast casserole
5-7 grain hot cereal
