Menu Plan Monday

Hi y'all, hope everyone is staying warm. The mornings are crisp here, the days remind me of spring in MI, short weather - LOL
Well I shared my exciting finds of new recipe/food sites yesterday, so all that's left is to share this weeks menu plan. After reading the $5 dinner blog I took a closer look at my meals, and I need to do better. I know there are more people in my house, but I don't have more money. I thought by having some meatless meals I would save money - no. Dairy prices are thought the roof! Since I am shopping this week for the next two weeks, I am going to spend the next couple days prepping by calculating meal cost and seeing if I can do better. Although I maintain that food is not my biggest expense, it is all the paper/toiletries ect. Even items like new socks and underwear seem to come from my grocery budget. So, will see if I can cut anymore corners (already cut like 5, how many more are there?).
Here is our dinner menu for this week -
Monday: Beef Stroganoff on noodles w/ broccoli
Tuesday: Sesame chicken wings w/ cabbage wedges and corn bread
Wednesday: Church/mom's night off
Thursday: Sloppy Joe w/baked fries and coleslaw
Friday: Ham and Potato casserole w/green beans and spicy oat muffins
Saturday: Home made pizza w/ tossed salad
Sunday: Italian pinto beans w/garlic bread and mixed veggies

Whats for dinner at your home this week?
Blessings, Beth Ann

hi, enjoyed your blog. good menu. I'm a lot like you. We live 22 miles from civilization with stores and shopping. So I stop at Piggly Wiggly on my way home from work to every couple weeks to do grocery shopping. It's convenient and I know where everything is, so it make for a quick grocery stop and shop. I don't really like to grocery shop!!

Have you tried beans for dinner? You can make a big pot of red beans, add a little meat for flavor and serve over rice. Very in-expensive.

I know Tenn. is just beautiful right now in this crisp fall weather
