2012 Menu Planning: 9/23 – 9/29/12

Changes in weather are welcome!  It’s fall and feels like it, finally.  Time for more oven meals and soups (especially with a dental issue for one).

I’ve been trying to lower my own carb intake, so casseroles and such are a challenge.  I usually add more protein to mine, take a smaller portion, and pile veggie sides on my plate.  It’s working for me.

Here’s what’s on our dinner menus this week:

Sunday: Roasted chicken (1.50), mashed potatoes (.50), broccoli (.33), carrots (.50).  About $2.85.

Monday: Ravioli casserole (ravioli 1.80, sauce .69, cheese .50), zuchinni (.33), salads (~.40).  About $3.80.

Tuesday: Cheesy potato soup with Progresso starter (~$2), biscuits (.50).  About $2.50.

Wednesday: Fettucini casserole from the freezer (1.90) with extra chicken from Sunday (free), green salads (.40).  About $2.40.

Thursday: Hawaiian pork roast (3.90), brown rice (.20), pineapple chunks (.91). About $5.00.

Friday: For 2: Roasted chicken leftover (frozen from Sunday (.75), brown rice (.20), green beans (.34).  About $1.30.

Saturday: For 3:  Pot roast (1.99/#), carrots (.40), potatoes (.40), salads (.30).  About $4.10.  There will be leftover beef for the freezer!

These home dinners for my family will cost about $22.00. Had to accommodate some crazy schedules, a sore mouth, and very limited funds right now.  Next week I’ll be getting really creative with what I already have, so stay tuned.
