Menu planning has been difficult for me the past few weeks, but after a couple of crazy weeks with not a lot of food, I decided I had to meal plan.
I was tracking my grocery expenses as well for the month, working to stay on a certain budget, which I did quite well at thankfully!
Monday: BBQ chicken, egg noodles, coleslaw.
Tuesday: Leftover chicken, mashed potatoes/gravy, salad
Wednesday: Cream of Broccoli soup and Focaccia bread
Thursday: Chicken, broccoli, and pepper stir fry, rice and big salad
Friday: Cabbage Roll casserole
I may do this or do actual Cabbage rolls…I am unsure! = ) I want to do it in the crock pot.
Saturday: Ham and Cheese rolls, Potato soup, salad
Sunday: Dinner at church
Monday: Baked potatoes, BBQ beef in crock pot, Salad
Tuesday: BBQ beef on buns, Baked potato dip and dippers, salad
Wednesday: Potato soup, bread, salad- Bake for Harmony’s..and snacks for the week, zucchini bread, cookies, and bread.
Thursday: Shepherd’s pie
Friday:Baked Taquito’s, salad, Spanish rice
Saturday: Black Bean chili, cornbread, carrot sticks
Sunday: leftovers, popcorn
Monday: Crock pot roast, potatoes, and carrots with salad
So, yes, I got on a roll and planned more than one week! I will have to shop again next week, but only for a couple of the basics.
I am using my crock pot and rice cooker as much as I can to help save on time and planning on making snacks on Wednesday’s should help me.

    I noticed you have BBQ beef. For CR we made shredded pork. We just put the meat in a roaster pan and poured pop over it. Cooked it all day, then added BBQ sauce later. It was really good!
    You could try that with beef, but pork is so cheap right now.
