Menu Planning Monday 5/10
Today is my 14th anniversary (and yesterday was Mother's Day) so this week is a little different. We didn't go out to dinner tonight because we were painting the family room (my anniversary gift and I LOVED it!!) but I'm saving my out to dinner night for later this week :)
Here's my menu plan for this week - kind of basic though we did try a new recipe tonight that was very good!
Monday: Chicken BBQ Sandwiches w/ Mac and Cheese - used my own mac and cheese recipe but it was still good :)
Tuesday: Mini Meat Loaves with Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans - family favorite that we have a lot - or at least whenever I have I have ground beef in the freezer
Wednesday: Shepherd's Pie - same thing - I use the leftover mashed potatoes
Thursday: Either chicken stir-fry or chicken ceaser salad - haven't decided yet but will be using the Perdue chicken short cuts for dinner
Friday: Out to eat - yea!
Saturday: Leftovers unless we have some friends over then I will have to make something :) Hoping for the guests over the leftovers.
As for grocery shopping this week I went twice to pick up a few things. No picture since there wasn't much there and it was mostly just ingredients for our dinners along with a few deals.
I spent: $21.75
And saved: $20.13
