Menu Plan Monday

Monday, Monday - here again. One way that we have found to cut down the grocery bill is to take advantage of store sales and coupons to stock up - then eat from your stockpile in between sales. Last week we shopped the sales. This week we're enjoying the surplus and will have to buy only bread, fruit and possibly milk.

Breakfasts: scrambled eggs, brown n serve sausages, pancakes or waffles (we have many of these homemade and frozen)

Lunch: left overs; tuna or lunch meat sandwiches, carrot sticks, fruit


  • Chili
  • Sloppy joes, steamed cauliflower
  • Homemade chicken and noodle soup (have a whole chicken to cook in crockpot; use the stock to make soup and freeze the rest of the chicken pieces for future meals)
  • Homemade spaghetti
  • Tacos(with either hamburger or chicken)
  • Hamburgers, fries, corn
  • Chicken and rice skillet
We are taking a day trip to Chicago on Tuesday (field trip to the Shedd Aquarium with my daughter) so I'm not sure yet if we'll be home for supper that day, but I'll have a plan in case we are.

What will you be enjoying this week? Take a look in your freezer, your pantry and fridge. Make a menu plan in advance - I guarantee it'll save time and stress for you as the week goes on!
