Menu Planning Monday 8-8-11

 So far we're doing pretty good on our 200 Challenge for this month.  We went shopping last week and spent $133.47 out of our $200 budget, leaving us with $66.53 left for the rest of August.  I'll be going to the store this week to pick up just a few things, but hopefully not much!  Here's the menu for this week!

Dinners - 
Monday - Black Beans & Rice, Veggies & Dip

Tuesday - Homemade Pizza, Fresh Fruit

Wednesday -  Mexican Layer Casserole, Black Beans, Yogurt Sundaes {with granola and peaches}

Thursday - Leftovers

Friday - Hubby & I will be out celebrating 5 years of marriage  :-)

Saturday - Out of town

Sunday - Crockpot Taco Soup, Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets, Sweet Potatoes

Breakfasts -
Apple Spice Cous Cous
Oatmeal {with honey, cinnamon, & coconut oil}
Orange Cranberry Muffins
Banana Muffins

Lunches - 
Peanut Butter & Honey Sandwiches
Lettuce & Tomato Sandwiches
Chimichangas {from the freezer}

I'll also be making some of these yummy Homemade Larabars just as soon as my Coconut Oil gets here!  :-)

I felt like I spent WAY too much of my budget on my first week this month too! I needed oil and flour and all those types of things that seem to drain the budget. I am going to be shopping tonight for a few meal items, hope to stay very conservative the rest of the month.

Is it just me or have some grocery items increased quite a bit??? I just feel like my budget is getting tighter and tighter! Sigh!

Happy Anniversary! Your menu looks great. Good luck staying under budget at the grocery this week.

Thanks for the anniversary wishes!

Amy, it isn't just you...the prices of many groceries are going up (even at Aldi). :-( It is making it VERY hard!
