One of my New Year Resolutions was to plan meals more accordingly and save money - well today I did both. I saw on another blog where the lady had a theme every night and planned her menu around that, so here is what mine looks like:
Monday: Lite night - something simple and light after all the bad eating we did over the
weekend. (This week - Grilled Chicken Chef salad with Homemade ranch dressing)
Tuesday: Mexican (This week - Chicken Tacos with 7 layer dip)
Wednesday: Open - because we have a friend that usually joins us for dinner every Wednesday night, we decided to leave this one open. (Chicken casserole & Green beans)
Thursday: American (Tater Tot casserole with Corn)
Friday: Italian (Minestrone soup with French Bread)
The weekends are a little harder to plan because we like to eat out. So I will play that by ear. I went to the grocery store today and used my coupons saving over wait for it.....$8.00. Ok, so I'm no Melody Winberry....yet! John said that he will track my savings - he loves to track stuff and at the end of each month put it into my savings account for me to do whatever I want with it. Wow, now that's an incentive.
When I got back from the grocery store, here's what I came home to:
Luke and John are both asleep, but at least John is laying down. Luke has fell asleep sitting up!
Have a good week.
