menu plan monday ~ january 10

We survived last week! The first week going back to work/school is always a tough week. I didn't get to everything on my menu planning list, which makes this week even easier because there are some repeats. There were a couple of fend for yourself nights at the end of the week. On Friday, Greg and Heather were so tired they went to bed without dinner. Stephanie had cereal and I ate the last crumbs out of the Doritos bag. Classy.

During last week's grocery trip, we went over my original plan of $100, but stayed under our weekly average of $132. There were some good P & G deals paired with coupons that couldn't be passed up. This week our normal store is having a case sale. I plan on taking advantage of that sale, while planning most of our meal items from what is already on hand in the pantry and freezer. Even with a little stocking up, I am confident that we can stay under $400 for the month.

On the menu this week:

  • shredded beef enchiladas
  • mac 'n cheese 'n burger
  • beef stir fry
  • cream cheese chicken
  • teriyaki chicken
  • chicken alfredo bake
  • potato cheese soup

What's on your plate? See what others are having at

Doritos are my love language.


I DO NOT BUY THEM because I will eat the entire family sized bag in one sitting.
