Monday Menu

I have been trying to come up with a good title for a weekly menu post. I really like Sunday Spread, with thanks to Tattooed Minivan Mom. I felt like crap yesterday so it got put off until today and I am hoping to have it again this coming Sunday!
This is what I have planned for this week (6 days worth, 1 day for leftovers or eating out). I have attempted to use some of the same ingredients with totally different dinners trying to cut cost for a budget that fits most family needs and cut your time in the kitchen without feeding your family boring meals.

Menu for the week
  • Meatloaf and loaded baked potatoes
  • Tacos, rice and beans
  • Homemade Mac and Cheese with fruit
  • Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo
  • Homemade chicken pot pies
  • Goulash (noodles, tomato soup and corn, ground beef) with a salad

Grocery list - $45.00 if you bargain shop. Not too bad for a weeks worth of dinners for 5 people.

  • 3 lbs ground beef
  • lg potatoes for baking
  • sour cream
  • Lg bag shredded cheddar cheese (split 2 ways)
  • small bag of long grain rice
  • 1 can refried beans
  • elbow noodles
  • Velveeta cheese
  • 1 lg rotisserie chicken
  • 1 small head of broccoli
  • 1 jar Alfredo sauce or Alfredo mix
  • 1 pkg Fettuccine noodles
  • 1 pkg frozen mixed veggies
  • 1 jar or mix chicken gravy
  • 1 pkg pie crust
  • 2 cans tomato soup
  • 1 can corn
  • fresh fruit
  • lettuce and any of your favorite salad fixings

If anyone is interested in any of these recipes just email me and I would be happy to share them with you. Happy cooking!
