{November 3, 2008}   Menu Plan Monday: staying on budget

This week I am planning my menu on a super tight budget. I wanted to come up with a good way to serve meals that would taste good but still fall within my budget for the week. I considered doing cheap meal ideas but then thought better of it and decided to go the lucky leftover route. Lucky leftovers are when you make a menu planning to use your leftovers for the next days meal, but still have a totally different meal than what you had the day before. Here is What I’ve come up with for this week.

Monday:
Spaghetti and meatballs

Tuesday:
Meatball subs (using leftover meatballs)

Wednesday:
Steak (an inexpensive cut bought in family pack for extra savings per pound)
Baked potatos

Thursday:
Fajitas using the left over steak
(also still have some fresh peppers and onions that i bought for last week’s pasta)

Friday:
Potato beef casserole
(using left over baked potatos sliced up)

The potato beef casserole totally sounds like something my hordes would eat. Thanks!
