Dinner menu

April 19th, 2015 at 04:14 pm

Okay today I decided to create a dinner menu and do my grocery shopping based on that menu.

Here it is:
- Sunday - salmon, rice pilaf, sweet potato
- Monday - spaghetti
- Tuesday - baked chicken and pasta
- Wednesday - left over
- Thursday - baked pork chops and corn
- Friday -homemade pizza and salad
- Saturday - salad and sweet potato

I made tonight's dinner, browned the ground beef for spaghetti that I'll place in the crockpot tomorrow. I went ahead and seasoned , froze both the pork chops and chicken, cutting down my cooking time. All in all, including snacks I spent $74 at the grocery store, not bad. I usually spend about $120 a week.

I'm thinking Sunday's will be my day to create my menus

    I have found that a menu plan helps us eat healthier and spend less. I did get tired of meal planning every week and have moved to making them for two weeks up to a month in advance. This helps with variety in our family. Hope this works for you!

    Thanks CCF, I may try the two week plan.

    I hope you enjoy the benefits of meal planning. I really like meal planning because it uses items at hand nearly eliminating the issue of expiry dates. It helps to keep all menu plans in a binder to replicate a few months later. I do my best to make the simplest meals on the busiest days and one special meal on Sunday that easily links to a 'plan-over' on Tuesday or Wednesday.

    I love meals that you can stretch for 2 nights too- not only cheaper but second night is no cooking yay!
