Menu Plan: Week of 7/26/10

I went grocery shopping yesterday afternoon (by myself while hubby stayed home with the kiddos during naptime...bliss!) and was proud to come home and say that I only spent $60 on groceries for us for the week. I'm trying to use up a lot of what I already have in the pantry and freezer. Here is what our menu looks like for the week:

cold cereal (since my son will only eat Rice Krispies for breakfast!) and toast
Honey Crunch Granola with blueberries and yogurt
Raisin Bran Muffins

Grilled ham and cheese, tomato soup
Picnic lunches (sandwiches, cheese, fruit) outside on nice days

Monday: Cheese Tortellini with slow-cooker marinara sauce, kiwi fruit, lettuce salad

Tuesday: Vegetable Beef Skillet (new recipe), lettuce salad, orange and apple slices

Wednesday: leftover buffet

Thursday: Taco Soup (recipe to come soon), tortilla chips and salsa, pineapple

Friday: Baked Spinach Pasta (freezer - this poor lil' guy has been on my menu for weeks and keeps getting carried over...), lettuce salad

Saturday: Clean out the fridge night

Sunday: hubby's on his own - the kids and I are heading out of town to Nana and Papa's farm for the week

  1. That taco soup sounds really interesting. Looking forward to seeing your review of it.

  2. hope you enjoy the spaghetti sauce!!

  3. Looks great! My menu this week consisted of a lot of what we already had in our pantry/freezer too! Its a great way to save on groceries for a week or two :)

  4. SnoWhite - this sauce is a family favorite now! Love the fact that I can cook up a batch of healthy, veggie-packed, low-sugar sauce for my family. This time I doubled the recipe for the freezer!
