Menu Planning Monday 2-2-09

This week we're trying to keep it simple and cheap. I plan to cook mostly using items already on hand and I hope to have just one small run to the store this week. Here goes...

Monday - Black-eyed peas, corn bread, greens (I didn't end up making this one from last weeks' menu)

Tuesday- Tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwiches

Wednesday - Leftovers

Thursday - Blueberry pancakes

Friday - Tostadas (lettuce, tomatoes, beans, rice, cheese, salsa, sour cream, etc. on a tostada shell)

Saturday - Baked potatoes, salad

Sunday - Leftovers

I also plan to bake bread and make some homemade granola, pumpkin bread, apple spice cous-cous, raspberry tea, and baby food to store up for snacking, lunches, and freezing. Hope you all have a great week!

Your tostadas sounds great. I'll have to remember that when I get tired of the usual tacos!!

Your menu sounds great and cheep and as always helps to inspire me! Thanks! I need to sit down and plan next weeks menu too. Robby and I are also trying be more frugal with meals and are not going to go shopping this week if we can help it so I am also cooking out of the pantry.

You can add some Spanish rice to your tostadas if you want a complete protein, as I know you are trying to watch that...

Your Sis,

Yes, our girls are twins, and we are originally from the Upstate! We'll be returning there in April. Small world. Thanks for coming by to "meet" me.

Sounds yummy!!

You are so ambitious to cook all those extra things. I also do baby food stored up for the week. When we have a soup or veggie I store in Gerber jars for the rest of the week. I don´t have room to freeze though but at least I am saving from having to buy even more Gerber’s and I am feeding my baby healthier.

I so long to make bread. Hope to do it this week too. It has been so long.
