Frugalness, Simple Living and thoughts about Christ.

Menu Plan Monday!! September 29, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — handfulofquietness @ 10:33 pm



Cereal with Milk & Toast (can you say $.25/box Frosted Flakes!)

Bologna Biscuits (biscuits made in a big batch on Saturday morning!)

Toast, eggs & leftover bacon from Saturday morning!



DH – leftovers or sandwich fixings in his brown bagged lunch!

Me & Ryan – Chicken Sandwiches, homemade lunchables, fruit & chex mix when needed


Stuffed Peppers & Fried Potatoes – YUCK but it’s DH’s REQUEST!!!! He’s the pregnant one, lol!

Chicken Stirfry over Rice, corn on the cob maybe

Cubed Steak, Mashed Potatoes, English Peas & homemade biscuits or rolls

Grilled Pork Chops, Baked Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli

Hamburgers & Fried Okra – Chips or Mac & Cheese perhaps

Either Pizza or Chili Dogs with Chips probably Saturday night

Something in the crockpot for Sunday – depends on my week!


Things I’m doing to make it as frugal as possible – tonight’s specialty is Stuffed Peppers!! We of course had Lasagna and another hamburger dish late last week, so I took the leftover lasagna and scraped all the meat out – and added the extra little hamburger left over from the other dish and mixed it all togehter. The leftover pasta sauce was also in the fridge from the lasagna. I mixed it all together along with other goodies and then stuffed my peppers. They were fresh from my MIL’s garden, so total REAL cost for this meal is very low, even lower when you figure in I totally made it from leftovers or free stuff! Yay!  ALL these things are things I have stockpiled in the freezer – the only thing I need to buy for real this week is margarine (stick) and a large tomato. Everyone’s tomatoes are just fried around here, so I’ll have to pick up those things. 🙂 I do need to run to Kroger one more time this week since my 20 Glade coupons came in today! I think that promo ends next week, so I’ll need to hurry and get it done! That’s going to be a cost of $13.80 oop if I do it all at once – which I won’t, but it’ll net me $80 in catalinas!!! TOTAL moneymaker!!! 😀 Cannot WAIT to do it! I’m planning on rolling cats though – so I’ll have virtually NO oop. I won’t walk away with exactly $80 in catalinas, but it’ll be rather close. 🙂

    Looks like you have it worked out perfectly. I love fried potatoes, but I dont like stuffed peppers.
