Menu Plan Monday: 3/15

So, since we're fully on board with our budget and squirrelling away money like..... well, like squirrels, I guess..... I decided that I'd better get on board with  menu planning as well.
We've always done "well enough" with taking advantage of specials at the store and organizing food based on what's in the house.  But, I'm thinking that with a little extra organization and planning, I can do even better!!
So, here's my first attempt at posting and organizing our menu plan Monday --- (thanks to Organizing Junkie for organizing and motivating everyone on this)

Breakfasts

  • oatmeal with strawberries
  • frozen waffles 
  • english muffins with peanut butter and fruit
  • yogurt and fruit
  • French pillows (I'll post a recipe later -- they're amazing!!)
  • egg sandwiches
  • oatmeal again -- with whatever fruit is still around
Lunches
  • leftover carmelized onion pizza (we had a pizza fest last night and have a ton of leftovers)
  • salad with leftover cut-up steak
  • pasta with sauce
  • leftover artichoke pizza
  • leftover mac and cheese
  • leftover unstuffed cabbage
  • sandwiches -- 

Dinners
  • pork chops with stuffing, applesauce and green beans
  • unstuffed cabbage
  • macaroni and cheese
  • pasta with sauce and salad
  • fish with Hungarian cabbage and noodles
  • potatoes gruyere with salad
  • asparagus with poached eggs and baked potato

Welcome to joining the Menu Plan Monday group. For me, it has served as a great motivator for meal planning...knowing I desire to post to the group weekly. Plus, visiting others that are also meal planning has provided new recipes that have been tested already...I'm not one for experimenting much. ;-) Hope you enjoy participating weekly, too.

Blessings ~
