Menu Plan Monday - March 31st

I have a confession to make. I have a hard time sticking to a pre-planned menu. What I normally do is make a list of all the meals we like to eat and just go through the list and find what we have the ingredients for. However, I've been inspired by I'm an Organizing Junkie who hosts Meal Plan Monday on her blog.

So, we'll see how this works out. I hope it helps me focus on some of our more frugal recipes.

Monday: Split Pea Soup, oyster crackers

Tuesday: BBQ Chicken Burgers on homemade buns, corn on the cob, canned mandarin oranges

Tacos with homemade refried beans, Mexican Rice and avocados

Thursday: Leftover Night

Friday: Company for Dinner- Hawaiian Haystacks

Saturday: Homemade Pizza, canned pineapple, baby carrots

Sunday: Leftovers or eat at my parents house

Other things I will cook this week: Sourdough Bread (2 loaves), granola

Welcome to MPM! I'll say two things about this menu-planning thing, 1) you will save money, 2) it's so nice not to have to scrounge for food at dinner time.

Thanks for sharing your menu and have a great week.

My menu is up at Don't Eat Baby.

Welcome to MPM.

Everytime I participate I do better at following a plan and eating better.

Sounds like some yummy meals - especially the home made bread.
