And She Lived…

{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.

Spaghetti and meatballs

Meatball subs (using leftover meatballs)

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

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

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


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