Menu Plan Monday for week of March 30th

I took a break for a bit from Menu Monday but decided this morning to get back on track. We started the envelope budget system again and I am thrilled to report that I did not use all of our grocery money as I had anticipated. I know there are many women out there that can shop for $75 a week or less, but I have not achieved that yet!!! Try as I might, I cannot leave the WalMart without spending $100-although there was one trip this month that only cost us $90-that was a major milestone!!!!

Here's the menu for the week:

Monday Grilling out hamburgers/hotdogs corn on the cob

Tuesday Nuggets and fries

Wednesday Smoked sausage and fried potatoes

Thursday Beef stew and biscuts

Friday Mac and cheese (Jr. Gamma Phi Circus Opening Night)

Saturday Manicotti

Sunday What's left in the fridge?????

For more great recipe and menu ideas head over to

Have a great week!!!!

Can me & my crew just come to your house for dinner this week? Your menu sounds yummy!

I need to get better about writing up a weekly menu. I'm tired of just flying by the seat of my pants! ;)

Love the name of your blog, we have sort of done the envelopes, Walmart is expensive for me too, and I love the ideas on your menu, I need to add variety. Thanks for sharing.
