A view to economy (Menu Plan Monday)

(Want to participate through I'm an Organizing Junkie? Details here, including banners. For more menus, this week's Mr. Linky will be posted on the IaOJ blog.)

This week's menu is based loosely on Miss Maggie's Hillbilly Housewife $70 Low Cost Menu. I rearranged some meals, using what we have including some frozen convenience foods already in the freezer (like the quesadillas). I also eliminated the cornmeal mush since nobody here will eat it.

I'm not writing in the breakfasts here: they're mostly hot or cold cereal, toast, muffins, juice. Everybody seems to have their own preferences. One weekend morning we'll have cinnamon rolls.

Monday
Lunch: Cold cut sandwiches, carrot sticks, apples, yogurt
Dinner: Meat loaf, squash, salad, maybe rolls or crackers

Tuesday
Lunch: Quesadillas, raw veg
Dinner: Salmon, brown rice, peas, egg rolls, canned pineapple mixed with frozen mango, maybe cookies

Wednesday
Lunch: Tuna sandwiches, celery sticks & dip, canned peaches
Dinner: Burritos made with ground turkey and green peppers; leftover rice, salad

Thursday
Lunch: Frozen pizza, raw veg/dip, applesauce
Dinner: Baked beans with bacon, cooked carrots, muffins or bread

Friday
Lunch: Leftover beans, cheese or peanut butter sandwiches, fruit
Dinner: Spaghetti and meat sauce, salad

Saturday
Lunch: Crockpot soup, sandwiches
Dinner: Either takeout chicken or bbq burgers and hot dogs

Sunday
Lunch: Quick after-church food
Dinner: Family meal at relative's.

Also: popcorn, milkshakes, cheese sticks, apple butter on rice cakes, etc.
