Menu Plan Monday
Today I am participating in Menu Planning Monday at orgjunkie.com.
Now that summer is in full swing I'm finding that I need to be more deliberate about my menu planning. Both boys are in sports this summer sometimes having games or practices in the evenings. It's these times that can really wreck havoc on the budget by sending us straight to the drive-thru! I don't want that for my family as our budget is pretty tight right now and those extra bucks are designated to go other places. I've learned that if I start cooking dinner a littler earlier than I normally would that we all have a chance to eat and not be in such a rush once the game time rolls around! Here's what's on the menu this week:
Cincinnati Chili w/all the fixings
Steamed broccoli and carrots
Homemade cinnamon rolls
Tater tot casserole
Homemade dinner rolls
Corn on the cob
Salad w/homemade croutons (recipe to come later)
Chicken & Dumplings (recipe to come later)
Homemade Pancakes (recipe to come later)
Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup
I also plan on doing some freezer cooking. Hopefully I'll get some cookies and muffins made later this week. If so, I'll post some pics of what I decided to make!
