Menu Planning Monday 5/24/10-5/30/10

Linking up with orgjunkie.com again for meal planning… feel free to join in if you plan meals!

Monday, May 24: Leftover Chicken Mozarella Spaghetti with Broccoli

Tuesday, May 25: Eating out with a friend 🙂

Wednesday, May 26: Black bean and corn quesadillas

Thursday, May 27: Sloppy Joes and Oven Baked Fries (carryover from last week), corn on the cob

Friday-Sunday:  Whatever we get fed by out-of-town relatives! 🙂

And… whew… we made it through the month and on budget!  Okay, to be honest, we went out to eat at least once that wasn’t in the budget because we got a gift of some money to use for a date night and free babysitting.   🙂  I’m still impressed!

Speaking of budgeting, I am participating in a challenge starting June 20th to feed my family for $25/person for 4 weeks.  Check it out and join me! 🙂

  2. $25 a week? I think my teenage son eats that himself every 2 days 🙂 Good luck with it!

    • Well, I’d probably be struggling more with a teenager! I feel like I get an easy pass with a 4 year old who doesn’t eat much! Unless I feed him breakfast for dinner… then he out eats me! 🙂 Oh, and it is $25/person… so for us that is $75 a week.

  3. Thanks for the link to the blackbean and corn quesadillas. This summer I hope to try out a lot of meatless meals for my lunch, so that I can decide which ones to make for my husband (the resident carnivore;)). I think it would save us a bunch, plus beans are great for the heart!

    • My husband is a pretty big meat eater as well and he really likes these. I served everyone else’s except mine with leftover shredded chicken as well last time… he said he liked the vegetarian just as much as the ones with meat.
