Menu Planning: Why I Do It And This Week's Menu

Sunday, September 18, 2011

Making a menu each week is essential if I do not want the temptation of running to our local Little Caesar's Pizza place for a couple of $5 pizzas.

While $5 pizzas are an "easy to justify" purchase, I mean come on, they are convenient & the kids totally LOVE them...


We are trying to save money, not spend it carelessly. So I try to stick with a menu.

So here it is our menu for this week. I did assign meals to particular days, however, that is all subject to change.

Sunday - Spaghetti & Salad
Monday - Grilled hamburgers & hot dogs, corn, pasta salad & homemade fries
Tuesday - Hashbrown & Pork Chop Casserole
Wednesday - Breakfast (pancakes, eggs, sausage & toast)
Thursday - Chicken tortilla wraps, corn & salad
Friday - Leftovers (possibly date night with hubby with our free dinner coupons to Outback)
Saturday - Homemade pizzas using the fastest & easiest homemade pizza crust ever!

Disclosure: We do eat out sometimes, we just try to plan and budget for it if at all possible. I just feel "guilty" if we eat out because of my unpreparedness...

Linking up to Organized Junkie's Menu Plan Monday


  1. The Hashbrowns and Pork Chops look good. I never know what to do with pork chops.

  2. I know what you mean..This will be the first time I made this recipe and anxious to try it.

  3. Looks like a delicious menu!! The chicken tortilla wraps sounds healthy and tasty :D

  4. You have to let us know how the hasbrown and pork chop casserole was. If it's good, it's getting added to next weeks plan!

  5. I definitely will! I can't wait to try it!
