Recipe For A Simple Life

Simplify your life, one day at a time

Menu Plan Monday

I went to Aldi today and picked up the groceries for the week.  I can usually get what I need for around $50.00 for our family of 5, but this week I had to re-stock some of the school lunch supplies and a few staples so it was over $70.00.  Then I went to Kwik Trip because milk is on sale until September 28 for $2.19 a gallon and spent another $10.00.  I was feeling kind of bummed about how much I spent until I sat down to write this post and my son came into the kitchen.  He opened the frig to find some supper (it’s leftovers on your own tonight) and said to me, “Mom, we have too much stuff!  The ‘frig is too full!”    Awwww, what a sweetie! :o)   Here’s what I’m planning to make with all those groceries:

 Our Menu This Week:

Venison Chops or Chicken Breast, Spinach Noodles, Carrots w/ Dip

Cheese Ravioli, Tossed Salad, Breadsticks

Sausage Cheese Muffins, Eggs, Fruit

Tacos, Corn, Applesauce

Stir Fry Veggies & Fried Rice

We also plan to eat out one night with friends after our opening night of fall soccer and we’ll be working on some leftovers by the end of the week.  I was really itching to put some soup on the menu, but decided I better wait just a little longer since that’s always more of a fall and winter food around here.  No sense in rushing summer out the door just because school started again…….

What’s on your menu this week?
