Menu Plan Monday- 26Jan- 01Feb

Wow, it has been a very long time since I posted a planned menu! I have been menu planning, just not getting around to posting it.

I decided to increase our grocery budget, I actually doubled it. It was too small & then with the prices going up, something HAD to be done. Not to mention the fact that we eat out about once a week (weither for lunch or dinner).

Before I post, can I share some good news? I am eating better throughout the day. Not craving as much fast food & junk. Although chocolate is still a fave, I go for two pieces of dark chocolate (rich in antioxidants) rather than endless amounts of cookies & candy bars. lol. Yaye!

Okay so here is my menu for this week:

Monday: Chicken Paninis with broccoli cheese soup

Tuesday: Steak, baked potatoes, & green beans

Wednesday: Minestrone (we can't get enough!)

Thursday: Spaghetti w/mixed green salad & garlic bread (ohhh I can't resist)

Friday: Salisbury Steak, mashed potatoes, corn (Corey's fav)

Saturday: Fettucine Alfredo with Broccoli

Sunday: Chicken Ceasar Salad

  1. You're ridic. I can't believe you can eat that well. You have some amazing willpower!

    P.S. I've been menu planning as well. $200 for 3 weeks of groceries. Shut the front door.

  2. Chicken paninis? Do tell!
