Menu Plan Monday: What's on Your Plate?

"Hey Cheapo! What's on YOUR plate this week?"

Ok everyone - make sure you are matching your meals up to the local sales flyer. Buy whatever is on sale and make a meal of it!

Monday - Ham & Provolone Quiche, mashed sweet potatoes, salad

Tuesday - Mexi Chicken, spanish rice, green beans

Wednesday - Pork Cutlets, Chicken rice, peas

Thursday - Baked Ziti, garlic toast, salad
(will be trying this recipe taking suggestions into consideration)

Friday - Fried Blue Gill, coleslaw & buttered bread

Saturday - Whole grain pancakes & bacon

Sunday - Sandwiches and "The Gathering of the Leftovers"

On top of buying items on sale - try and then match those items up with coupons (or triple coupons if your store has such a program). Here are McFrug's triple coupon savings this week.

(Item and price after coupon applied)

Tabasco Sauce $.21 to the plus
2 pkgs. Lipton Rice Sides $1.00
80 ct. Snuggle Fabric Softener $2.49
12 Yoplait Yogurts $ 4.80
Cottonelle 6pk double roll TP $2.49
2 Grands biscuits $1.00
Skippy Natural Peanut Butter $ 1.30

My total WOULD have been $24.53 - though Cheapo paid $13.43.
That's an $11.10 savings just by doing a tiny bit of planning!
Keep your money in your pockets, where it belongs! *wink*

I've got my meal planner on the desk right here, and am scribbling down ideas from your plan. Thanks so much! Can't wait for the chummy quiche! ;)
