Meal Plan Monday

Here we are again an other Monday and an other meal plan. Don't forget to check out I'm an Organizing Junkie . She has lots of great tips and links to some great menu plans. We have been doing really well sticking to the meal plan. The days sometimes get moved around but we have been eating out WAY less then we did before. In fact I can't tell you the last time we ate out, well when we were not asked out by someone that is.Last week we did have some juggling and adjusting of the menu Thursday was Daddy and Daughter night so Riz took Sophia to McD's for a fish sandwich and then to the park to play while Mommy had some girl bonding time with her befriend, Lisa. I did not eat dinner that night I just was not hungry after all the coffee :) (Hey that sounds like a diet i could live with). Friday night I made home made Pizza from this recipe it is yummy.....It will be on our meal plan again. The Steak was moved to Sunday because my mom treated us to dinner on Saturday night (Thanks Mom). So all that being said the Pork Chops are going to be dinner tonight..

*Monday - Shake and Bake pork chops (Riz favorite), Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and of course Apple sauce.

*Tuesday - Chicken and Rice Casserole (Moved from last Thursday night). Grandpa watches Sophia for us on Tuesdays and sticks around for a visit when we get home from work so this is always an easy meal after he leaves.

Wednesday - Lasagna (It is Italian days at *Publix so everything Italian is BYGO free), Salad and Garlic bread. * there will be enough of this to freeze for an other meal. A true BYGO free meal LOL

Thursday - Left overs/Pot luck

Friday - Cheeseburger Hamburger Helper ( I know so bad for you but I love it and it is quick and easy)

Saturday - We will be eating out with friends from out of town

Sunday - Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe and Spicy Italian sausage (this is the 3rd week I have moved this up. I have everything we need to make this dish but time LOL. I want to cook this when we can really enjoy it so we will see if that will be this Sunday or not..

PUBLIX TIP: Kraft Parmesan Cheese 2 for $6 they are on a stand in the front of the store that has a tare pad of coupons for $1 off a can. Take 2 coupons and they will take each coupon off the $6 price so you get 2 cans for $4 a GREAT deal. Also there is a coupon in the Smart Source insert of the Sunday paper that give you a verity of $1 store coupons that you can use in conjunction with a manufactures coupon do give you more savings.

*UPDATE: We already have altered this weeks meal plan LOL. Monday night we did not have Pork Chops I though Riz took them out her thought I took them out they are still in the freezer.. A flaw in our plan LOL.. It was OK though neither of us felt like having them anyway so we had Pancakes, Bacon and OJ for dinner in celebration of Pancake Day today... And this morning my FIL came to watch Sophia and brought us a meatloaf with all the trimmings for dinner. So we don't have to cook anything just pop it in the oven. Thanks Mom and Dad for the meatloaf...So Pork Chops get moved to next week and the Chicken and Rice will be moved to next week as well...
