Menu Plan Monday

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I guess I have a bad case of mommy brain because I didn’t realize until now that I never posted Menu Plan Monday for last week!  Trust me, we ate and we ate well.  That was evidenced by our $120 grocery bill.  It may not seem like a lot to some of you but for a family of three, I think I went overboard.  My biggest obstacle is finding reasonably priced organic meats and produce.  There are a few things I refuse to skimp on and organic milk and chicken happen to be on the top of the list.  I’ve threatened to get a cow and a couple of hens.  If prices keep going up, I just may do that. 🙂

Monday – Baked Prosciutto Egg Cups

Tuesday – Whole Wheat Pita Pizzas from The Picky Eater

Wednesday – Chicken Salad served on the leftover whole wheat pitas

Thursday – Asian Lettuce Wraps

Friday – Caprese Grilled Cheese  – this will also be my entry for the Crazy Cooking Challenge.  Come back for my version of the recipe next Monday.

Saturday – Cinco de Mayo Fiesta!  We’ll be serving guacamole, jalapeno popper dip and these un-fried, refried beans!  It’s going to be appetizers and Coronas for everyone. 🙂

Sunday – Leftovers!

My goal this week is to keep my grocery bill under $100.  I’ve actually clipped a few coupons and who knows?  I may just use them!

How much do you spend weekly on groceries?

  1. Menu plans are very important and this looks interesting and perfect one for my whole family.. Thanks for the idea!

  2. I have been wanting to create some sort of weekly meal plan, just afraid I won’t stick to it.

    • I usually don’t make things on the day I say I’m going to because I forget to defrost something or I run out of time and need to make the quickest item but so far, we’ve pretty much stuck with it. Trust me though, there are nights that I just want to order pizza!

  3. The Prosciutto egg cups…OMG!
    Whirlwind of Surprises

  4. Sounds good, especially the Fiesta!

  5. I wish we only have a $120 grocery bill although we are a family of 5 but still! Teach me your tricks!

    • Really? I thought my bill was high! I used to only spend $70-80/week when I bought mainly processed, convenience foods.

  6. I’m amazed you can plan that far in advance. I can barely plan each night’s dinner on that day.

    They look great too! Thanks for sharing. I might have to come back every Monday and get ideas…. 🙂

  7. Those look delicious! Can’t wait for Cinco de Mayo! My all time fav food is mexican food! ‘Specially green chili!
