Meal Plan Monday
Meal planning is one of my favorite things to do. I can see what is on sale for the week and what I have that can make meals cheaper in the long run.
This week will still be a laid back week for me. My kids are coming home Wednesday. I am so excited. I have missed them ALLOT!! We won't have a whole lot of time with school starting and orientations, so quick meals will have to cut it for us this week.
Here is what I have in store for this week. Nothing is ever written in stone in my house but certainly close to it :)
Monday- Dad and I are grocery shopping so we will pick up something nice from the Deli. Like a nice rotisserie chicken
Tuesday- Basil Chicken over Angel Hair Pasta Pasta and basil tomatoes that we got on sale @ Publix for less then $2.00. This meal may cost about $7.00 to make which is mostly the chicken breasts.
Wednesday-Breakfast for dinner since my kids come home this evening this is on of their favorites. Eggs and Egg beaters that were on sale Also I can get farm fresh eggs from my Sister, THANKS LISA!!! Sausage and pancakes. Which are on sale THIS WEEK, check it out!!!
Thursday- Chicken and Gnocchi-soup crock pot I plan on using the chicken left over from Monday and boiling it down for a nice chicken stock for this dish. I had this for the first time @ Olive Garden, THANKS TO LISA !!! and it was a very nice soup. Not to heavy an lots of flavor
Friday- Dinner out!!! We still have a few gift cards that we are going to use. Something Special for the kids since they start school soon. I am thinking RED LOBSTER!!!
Saturday- we plan on taking the leftover Gnocchi soup and turning it into a chicken and dumplings with spinach and carrots. Yummy!!!!
Sunday- We have church and a nice lunch planned for the kids @ Make"N the Dough in Lake Placid, FL This is a very nice family owned Italian Restaurant which we had lunch there last Sunday. Talk about a nice group of people and EXCELLENT food. We had our belly's full and lots of leftovers for dinner. Love the Italian leftovers..... YUMMY!!!
all in all this week should be a nice dinner week. I know that I am only cooking 3 days this week and eating out for a few days which isn't the normal @ all in our house. Considering the time we have and things to get done this will still work out to be a less expensive dinner week.
