Weekly Menu

So in the hopes of being more organized, more prepared, and to save money on groceries I have decided to plan my weekly menu ahead of time.

So here is my first attempt:
Monday- hotdogs, rutabaga (my mil gave us some to try and told me how to prepare them), baked beans
Tuesday- broccoli and noodles and salad
Wednesday- Chicken with a Trader Joe simmer sauce (not sure what flavor yet...got to have some spontenaity in life!) with string beans and black beans and brown rice
Thursday- loose sausage and pasta (again my mil sent us home with some homemade loose sausage...sooo good!) and salad
Friday- homemade pizza (noticing a trend: my mil gave us a pizza crust)

Don't know if I'd do beans and broccoli back to back - you'll produce enough gas by Tuesday nite to propel you to Long Island!!

we could save even *more* monday if we just had Thursday dinner every night.

And it's easier to plan!

That's great Jamie! I plan all of our meals ahead of time before I grocery shop and it has saved us a ton of time, energy and money! Some websites we find especially helpful are startcooking.com and tastyplanner.com
