Menu Plan Monday

I received another financial blow this morning. Because of that I am going to have to tighten our belts even more when it comes to groceries!

Last week I went to the store and pretty much blew my entire budget on one week's worth of meals and two weeks worth of snacks. But with a house full of teenagers, and usually extras, the snacks are depleting faster than I had planned.

In conjunction with the Eat From The Pantry Challenge,

and due to the fact that I really just don't have much more money to spend on groceries, I have gone through our freezer and pantry and have come up with meals that will just get us through until the next pay period. I will also be making some homemade snacks to finish out the week.

Monday ~ Hot ham/turkey and cheese sandwiches and pasta salad

Tuesday ~ Lemon pepper chicken and rice

Wednesday ~ FFY

Thursday ~ Cheesy meatballs over pasta

Friday ~ Cheeseburger Macaroni Hamburger Helper

Saturday ~ Open faced turkey sandwiches (didn't get to this last week)

Sunday ~ Thick french toast and turkey bacon (didn't get to this last week)


  1. sounds like a great eat from your pantry week! what homemade snacks are you going to make?

    hope your money matters work out! sometimes i just HATE money!

  2. The open faced turkey sandwiches sound good!
    I'm sorry to hear about your financial blow. We just got one, too! Our health insurance just went up again!

  3. I was going to officially do this Challenge too but wasn't sure I could do it. Maybe one day I will get the courage to try.
