Menu Plan for the Week of February 20th
Happy Monday! Sometimes the weekend can get so hectic, I’m actually glad when Monday does come, and we can settle back into more of a routine.
Craving greenery around here, so here is a picture from July in West Virginia.
Ok, on to the menu plan… It’s a pretty simple menu this week as I’d like to use up some of the items I have on hand.
(Any combination of the following)
Egg whites and spinach (hubby’s choice)
(We like to add fruit and/or carrots to any of these “entrees”)
Pasta (my kids love it)
Macaroni and cheese
Vegetarian corn dogs
Chicken, turkey or ham sandwiches
Graham crackers and milk
Peanut butter and fluff sandwiches
Whole wheat toast
Yogurt or cheese sticks, crackers
Leftovers from dinner
Pizza Bread Salad
Grocery list: lettuce, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, breadsticks, tomatoes, Italian dressing, basil
Tex-Mex Bake and Cornbread
This is so good! I made it when we had my parents over for dinner, and they liked it so much, they served it when they had company. Fresh tomatoes on top and taco sauce was a nice addition.
Grocery list: rigatoni pasta, ground turkey or beef, onion, corn, black beans, salsa, cottage cheese, egg, taco seasoning, cilantro, cumin, Monterrey Jack cheese and cornbread fixings
Chicken noodle soup and the best Light rolls
Grocery list: I start with canned soup, and then doctor it up with extra chicken, broth and vegetables; light roll ingredients-flour, yeast, eggs….
Grocery list: Tortillas, meat, taco rice, black beans, cheddar cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, taco sauce, ranch dressing
The pizza bread salad is such an interesting dish and sounds yummy! I found you through Organizing Junkie and I totally agree with your grocery shopping method. I like to plan my meals with fresh produce and lean meats to get the most nutrition. I have a site, http://www.coupon-kitchen.com where I base my meals plans around the produce and meat on sale. I may spend more than your average couponer but I feel like I’m getting the most out of my money!
Looking yummy! I really love hot dogs.. One of my favorite budget saving foods.
Looks great! The tex-mex bake sounds really good! My son would really like that!

I thought it was funny that you listed vegetarian corndogs and hamburgers….then hot dogs. It made me feel better about our usual lunch choices.
