Meal Planning Monday

One of the best way to control your grocery budget is to plan ahead. Put together a basic list to draw from -- dishes your family likes, are budget friendly, and take advantage of items on sale. This week, I have meetings two nights, so I want to make sure those nights are easy! I have some great veggies from the Farmer's Market that I want to use early on in the week. In addition, make sure you've got at least one extra meal you can pull together with pantry and/or freezer items if your week changes (happens a lot around here!)

Here's my plan for this week:

Monday: Roasted veggies (beets, butternut squash, onion) and pulled pork sandwiches

Tuesday: Chicken and cauliflower curry

Wednesday: Spaghetti, meatballs, french bread (homemade, in freezer)

Thursday: Bean and Cheese Burritos (make a big pot of refried beans in the crockpot) with salad

Friday: Homemade pizza

Saturday: Leftovers or Chili with cornbread

Sunday: Broccoli Soup

Perfect menu for our wet and rainy weather this week!
