As a way to save money grocery shopping, I've been trying to be really good about planning out our menu. Last week I also tried to plan out our menu based on what was on sale in the weekly store ads. The last part didn't go so well. By the time I hit the worst grocery store ever, only a few of their weekly sale items were still on sale. The next day, I tried the other grocery store that supposedly had roast on sale only to find out that their ads expire on Thursday (it was Friday). Argh.
Here's my menu plan for this week, I'll try again next week with the sale ads... I suppose:
Sunday: BBQ Beef Sandwiches
I usually buy a tiny potato or macaroni salad from the deli section since only Jed and I will eat the salads. Sometimes I make Broccoli Madness to go with it.
Monday: Chicken Salad Sandwiches. I half it and use a variation of this recipe (minus lavender, tarragon and almonds, plus red grapes) and serve it on yummy croissants.
Tuesday: Penne Rustica
My friend Erin has been posting her menu, and shared this recipe that sounded yummy. **(I've since made this recipe a bunch and LOVE it!)**
Wednesday: Egg Salad Sandwiches
The kids will probably want fried egg sandwiches, or ham sandwiches, they don't love egg salad like me.
Thursday: Pizza Bubble Ring with a salad
Friday: eat out
Hmm... we're having a lot of sandwiches* this week. Do your menus plan out like this with similar meals all week?
*It's me that wants to eat all the sandwiches. I had an egg salad at our Valentine's Party last week and it was so yummy I wanted more. BBQ beef is an easy crock pot recipe for when we're at church late. I went to Sam's Club yesterday and bought a huge thing of croissants and know Jed loves chicken salad sandwiches.
