Menu Plan: 3/14-3/20

Somehow time got away from me yesterday, and I completely forgot to get my menu plan for the week posted. No time now for anything but the menu today.

It’s a really simple week this week, and fortunately a really inexpensive one. Our total was $52.

Sunday: Pasta with meat sauce
Monday: Tacos
Tuesday: BLTs
Wednesday: Whole wheat pasta with pesto
Thursday: Chicken wraps
Friday: Homemade pizza
Saturday: Restaurant with visiting friends

I hope your Monday is a little less rushed than mine!

    I noticed your meal plans tend to have a lot of carbs in them and was wondering if you thought about looking at this in an alternative manner. I spent $32 this week in groceries and came away with a whole chicken and 1 lb of ground beef; total before coupons was $40. My meal plan for the week:

    whole roasted chicken/rice/veg
    breakfast for dinner (my teenage daughter loves this) and it usually turns out to be some sort of frittata or omelet
    Chicken casserole (leftover chicken from Monday) with noodles, veggies, sauce baked
    Tacos (ground beef)
    Soup night (cooked chicken carcass/leftover chiken), celery, carrots, with either crackers or biscuts

      Thanks for your suggestions. I do tend to fall back on pasta dishes with my schedule is tight. They’re quick and easy to make, and they are also easy to reheat for lunch the next day. The problem with most meat dishes is that they’re not as convenient for lunch the next day. I don’t follow a low carb diet, but I do practice portion control when it comes to carb heavy meals.

    Try doing meat dishes in crock pot as they are ready when you get home. Look for some good simmer sauces or make from scratch. Also, if you don’t have access to a microwave for lunches try a thermos or even “warm and tote”. You can look for it on the web.
