Menu Plan Monday

I picked up some great grocery deals in the last two weeks and stocked up on some items. Mostly meat. My freezer is pretty full and my weekly grocery lists for the rest of the month are going to be pretty minimal. Just some dairy and produce each week! This week, we have one free meal (yay!) because of hunting and gardening. And one or more of these meals may get switched if I can figure out what to do with the two ice cream pails full of green roma tomatoes I was able to pull before the snow (yes, snow) this weekend. If you have any green tomato recipes, share them now!

Breakfasts- oatmeal or eggs, bananas or apples, milk ($2-3)
Lunches- PB&J, pretzels or popcorn, apples or grapes or carrots, milk ($5)
Monday- Venison roast, potatoes, squash (free!)
Roast and potatoes in the crockpot with onions and garlic
Bake squash and serve with butter and brown sugar
Tuesday- Chicken potpie casserole ($2-3)
NEW Chicken, cream soup, mixed veggies, biscuit dough
Wednesday- Fried rice ($1-2)
Leftover venison, rice, mixed veggies, soy sauce, spices
Thursday- Quesadillas ($1-2)
Tortillas, cheese, salsa, sour cream
Friday- Birthday dinner out (budgeted separately from groceries)
Saturday- Pizza night ($2-3)
Pizza dough, tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni, sausage
Sunday- lunch with (10 or so) friends- Tomato Soup, Grilled Cheese, Apple Crisp ($5-6)
Tomato sauce, chicken broth, spices
Bread, cheese, butter
Apples, oatmeal, flour, cinnamon
dinner- Eat what you want night (leftovers!)

The cost for our meals this week is in the $20 range. For two adults and four kiddos.
That's our plan! For more menu ideas, check out the Organizing Junkie's website.
