Menu Plan Monday #45
Last week had it’s ups and downs. I felt like I had caught up to so many things that I had let slide while my Mother was here visiting. Feeling caught up on blogging meant that I could get a few things done in the garden and in the house.
It has been so hot here! Is it hot where you are? I make sure that I get up early in the morning (not my favorite thing to do!) so that I can pull a few weeks, dead-head a few flowers and walk my dog before the heat wears me out!
As you know, I have been paying more attention to the cost of my meals. My goal is to make all of my suppers cost around $5.00 per meal. Yes, you read that right, $5.00 for a protein, carbohydrate and vegetable or fruit. I have spoken about how I am not looking for proteins that cost under $2.50 per pound. Veggies and fruit should cost around $1.50 per pound and carbohydrates should take up the rest of the $5.00. These meals are for 4 people!
So, with that said, here is my Menu Plan Monday #45
Monday – Ravioli with Corn and Arugula (Meatless Monday)
Tuesday – Homemade spaghetti sauce with pasta, french bread, green salad
Wednesday – Tex-Mex Taco Pasta, green salad, fruit
Thursday – Grilled Tilapia, almond sesame quinoa, watermelon
Friday – Black bean burritos, fruit salad
Saturday – Grilled burgers, fries
Sunday – Grilled chicken thighs, potato salad, Red, White and Blueberry Salad
Do you meal plan? If not, you might want to think about it. You save time, money and frustration! Here are a couple great posts that will help you plan your meals.
