Menu Plan Monday: What's on Your Plate?

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

How quickly the weeks seems to roll around! McFrug has now realized, that she has made grocery lists and menu plans for so long now, that she's not sure how to grocery shop without them! The idea of actually walking into the store without a plan, sale flyer or list is just too scary of a thing. Not to mention the TIME it takes to buy grocs without a list - we're talkin' 20 minutes v/s 45 minutes here!
Did you make YOUR plan this week? If not, take 10 minutes now and do it! Start with what you already have in the fridge and cabinets - then fill in from the sale flyer and items you have coupons for. Ten minutes now will save you much time and stress in the long run of the week.

Here's mine:
Monday - Pork Cutlets w/gravy, mashed sweet potatoes, baby brussel sprouts, buttered noodles, cinnamon rolls
Tuesday - Chicken Stir Fry w/ brown rice, sugar free jello
Wednesday - Tacos, green beans, fruit
Thursday - Cauliflower Bisque topped w/cheese & bacon, salad, rolls
Friday - BBQ Cheeseburgers, Creamed Corn, Fruit
Saturday - 16th Birthday party to attend
Sunday - Pork chops, eggs, fried apples, biscuits

Was that difficult to do? Not at all. *wink*

Enjoy the birthday party.
My husband and I appear to have caught a spring cold or it's sinus season. Ugh!
Thank goodness we have a teenager who likes to cook.
I guess I'll take a day off, put my feet up and do some blog visiting.
Happy MPM.
