Menu Plan Monday – March 10-16



This is my first week since starting Menu Plan Monday that I have not had to plan meals around what is in my pantry or fridge. I am thankful, of course, for our free food and also for the stockpile we had in the pantry because it allowed me to cut $300 off our grocery bill last month. Now my pantry is empty and my fridge is bare, and I get to menu plan from scratch. The only problem… I have no idea what to make!

I’ll start with breakfast and lunch since they stay the same.

Breakfasts– pancakes, waffles, French toast, oatmeal, cold cereal

Lunches– sandwiches, muffins, fruit, veggies, cheese & crackers


Monday- Dinner out for the birthday boy

Tuesday- bow-tie pasta with asiago cream sauce, blackened scallops, salad, french bread

Wednesday- salisbury steak, egg noodles, corn, sweet potatoes

Thursday- Roast, mashed potatoes, green beans, whole wheat bread

Friday- homemade pizza with whole wheat crust

Saturday- shredded beef and bean burritos, rice

Sunday- Spaghetti, salad, French bread

  6. I have a coupon problem and I know you could help but I cant find your email address. Do you mind emailing me? lbmoore66 at hotmail. I really would appreciate it and I think you will love my problem.

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog during the blog party. I envy you, cutting money from your grocery bill. I should really look into that.

  8. Thank you for the kind and encouraging words you posted on my blog. Earlier today, I was thinking, “Should I cut out Monday Meanderings?” Your post let me know that I should continue to post. Perhaps I will leave out my plans for the week, then I can just cut/paste whatever devotion the Lord places on my heart for that week.

  9. Your week sounds yummy!

    Happy birthday to your birthday boy!

    Enjoy your week!
