Menu Planning Monday
We're already a few days into December and I don't know about you but I bet you're busy like me! The good news is that I'm under budget for this month and due to the holidays I'd like to keep it that way so I'm focusing this week's menu on what I have on hand. Currently, meat wise that means a lot of chicken. Fortunately I can change it up in a number of different ways to keep us from getting "bored" with the same meat day after day.
I've also included a meatless recipe (the ziti) so that I don't have to run out and buy a given meat at full price. One more way to save a little cash!
Monday: Chicken Salad and Appetizer Meatballs - I had a nail party today and we just ate what was left for dinner
Tuesday: Chicken Taco Bake
Wednesday: Sante Fe Chicken Casserole
Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie (my recipe)
Friday: Date Night and Kids Pizza Night
Saturday: Creamy Baked Ziti
Sunday: Burgers N Fries Pot Pie
Just one more week of menu planning for me to go this year! Since we are spending time with the family over Christmas it will be more of a combined effort hopefully this will save me some time and money! Of course, the holidays are rarely about being cheap so we'll see...
