Menu Monday

I thought I'd share my menu for this week. I like to read other people's menu posts because it gives me some new ideas to try. And I am always on the look out for new stuff to cook. Plus, menu planning helps with the grocery budget.

Our "week" starts on Fridays. It's payday. It works for us. :) So when you read this we will already be done with Friday-Sunday.

Here's our menu for this week:

Breakfasts: waffles, French toast sticks, cereal, oatmeal, grits, toast, fruit (whatever the kids are feeling)

Lunches: sandwiches, beefaroni (don't judge), Mac and cheese, leftovers, garlic butter pasta, salads (again, whatever the kids are feeling)

Snacks: fruit and veggies, Popsicles, veggie chips

Friday-eat out (grocery day)
Saturday- Mexican Night (taco salads with chicken, beans and fixings)
Sunday- BALT's (bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato sandwiches)
Monday- family dinner night (we eat with my Mom and Sister on Mondays...sometimes I cook, sometimes I don't...this week I'm making Mac and cheese to go with what my mom is making)
Tuesday- family dinner night (we eat with Matt's parents and grandmother on Tuesdays)
Wednesday- copycat California Pizza Kitchen California Club Pizza
Thursday- BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, green beans


That's our menu for this week. We've been bad lately about buying groceries but then eating out instead. Last week we only ate out on Friday evening. Hopefully this week will be the same. So far so good. 


  1. I cannot stop thinking about your BALT's....Im probably gonna cave and make one soon...Seriously, love bacon and avacado and tomatoes.....groan, is it lunchtime yet? :)

    Thanks for sharing your menu with us. You are so blessed that you have 2 family nights of dinner in your week, every week. We usually manage once a month with my family. Husbands are too far away.

    We eat out WAAAAY too much. Too much for our budget and too much for my waistline. We just cant get organized. And Husbands vegatarian ways right now make it even more uninspriring. Have a good week!

  2. Oh - I love reading your menus. Going to write some of these ideas down!
