A Meal Plan at Last!

Summer's seem to be an unscheduled, go with the flow time for us.  It's something that definitely does not work during Fall, when Kaia is in school (and Morgan is enrolled in the Virtual Academy), and Dana and I are both busy at work.

With everything that has been going on this month, we haven't left that summer schedule behind, and it shows!  The house is a disaster, meals are last minute, and the grocery budget is out of control.  It is time to stop this insanity, and get some order back into our lives.  Step one is a meal plan!

Monday: Connecticut Beef Supper and green beans.  This is a Betty Crocker Recipe that is a favorite.  It's sliced beef (any inexpensive steak cut works) browned with onions, then cooked with thin sliced potatoes in a cream of mushroom, sour cream and milk mixture.  Topped with shredded cheese and crushed wheat cereal.

Tuesday: Spaghetti and meatballs.  The sauce is going to cook in the crock pot all day, so when I get home, all I need is to cook noodles.

Wednesday: Pinto Beans and Ham in the crock pot.

Thursday: S.O.S. with fruit

Friday: Chili Dogs

Saturday: Potato Soup

Sunday: Roast or leftovers day

What are you eating this week?

WOW the S.O.S. sounds yummy! That might need to be something we try. I'll post my meal plan as soon as I come up with one...!
