Menu Planning - Week of 4/11/11

Monday's here again. Yesterday we had a beautiful day here in Cincy, so we were able to grill out. Today, not so much. We do have some leftover burgers and metts, so hopefully we can grill out tomorrow evening since today is so yucky and rainy.

And as usual, we didn't make all of the meals from last week... so we are gonna use some of those again this week. I'm also trying to budget wisely this week with my menu plan. We have been eating out a lot which has been pricier than I'd like. So this week's menu plan will be a cheap one! But still a good one, because being on a budget doesn't mean you have to eat crap!

Monday 4/11/11:  Barbeque Jack Chicken - already have the cheese and bbq sauce, just need the chicken!

Tuesday 4/12/11:  grill out with burgers, brats, and metts - already have everything... leftovers from Sunday

Wednesday 4/13/11:  Skillet lasagna - have noodles, but that's about it

Thursday 4/14/11:  Pork Milanese - only need to purchase pork and eggs

Friday 4/15/11:  Crunchy Garlic Chicken - we will use panko bread crumbs instead because that's what we have on hand, again.... only need to purchase chicken

Linking up to Menu Plan Monday at I'm An Organizing Junkie.

What kinds of meals do you all make when you are on a budget?

Peace, and bacon grease!

@ Heather - Ha, I plan the menu but so many times it doesn't even happen :(

@ Kate - Thanks for following back :)It was hard to plan for the week at first, but all in all it is better than tryin to decide what to make that night!

@ Angie A - I'm blushing :)

@ Faith - Hey girl, how ya been?! That garlic chicken does sound amazing... I'm wondering if I should add actual garlic to it to make it more garlicy than if we only used the garlic powder.

@ Ms - Thanks for letting me know about your linky... I'm off to check that out right now!

Hi Desi, I agree that just because you're on a budget doesn't mean you have to eat crap! I felt the same way when I was in college!

@ Gwen - It's nice to splurge of course, but no one can do that all the time! That french onion soup you just posted looks phenomenal!
