Week 65 Menu

I am back in the GRIND, folks. I have a lot of freelance work right now, which means I really need to get organized food-wise. This week I started doing dinner food prep while Cate eats her lunch. It was very helpful…if you’re home during the day, definitely a good tip for making dinnertime a little easier.

Here’s what we’re eating this week (probably). Bring on the menus! I seriously read through them every week to plan my menus. I’m so happy you all share!

MONDAY:
– Leftovers

TUESDAY:
– Orange Chicken
– Rice
– Steamed veggies

WEDNESDAY:
– Manicotti
– Salad
– Bread

THURSDAY:
– Leftovers? Hot Dogs? I don’t know…

FRIDAY:
Baked French Toast

SATURDAY:
– Eat out

SUNDAY:
– Pork Chops

    Jane, this is a great blog. How do you find time to make such great meals? Seriously, I don’t know how you do it. I am just not that great in the kitchen. Also, is your grocery bill a lot of money or is it not too bad. I totally want to follow your example but I am scared we will be living out of our car if we eat like a king. 🙂 Give me some tips!

    hey jaci!

    planning a weekly menu totally helps me save money right off the bat b/c I only buy things that I actually use. we definitely spend less now that I am consistently planning.

    I also shop at least 2 stores each week to save money.

    here’s a post I did about budgeting a while ago:
    http://www.thisweekfordinner.com/2007/04/kitchen-tips-working-with-budget.html

    trust me, we don’t eat like kings and I’m not a fancy cook at all. 🙂 definitely look at the budgeting post for ideas!

    oh – I think when life is normal I probably spend $80-100 per week…I never break $100, actually. but that’s not counting eating out probably 1 night a week.
