Menu Plan Monday & Grocery Round Up: 9/6-9/12

by Karen on September 6, 2008

As it turned out, Hanna wasn’t too bad at all. The wind and rain kept me up all night, and the power was out for a few hours, but overall it was pretty mild. Thankfully. Now that the skies have cleared, it’s back to business as usual today.

We spent $57 on groceries for the week! That includes 5 pounds of chicken breasts bought at $1.99/lb. Most of our meals are chicken-based, and $1.99/lb. is the cheapest I’ve seen it in my grocery stores, so I like to stock up when it hits that price. We should have plenty for the next few weeks!

And now on to our menu plan:

Saturday: Blackened catfish and rice pilaf
Sunday: Round roast and mashed potatoes
Monday: Chicken fajita tortilla soup
Tuesday: Sandwiches/leftovers
Wednesday: Whole wheat spaghetti with marinara
Thursday: Three-cheese stuffed manicotti
Friday: Homemade pizza

We were in the mood to mix things up this week, so we took a lot of time planning our meals to include new things (the manicotti) and old recipes that we haven’t made in a while (chicken fajita soup). I’m really looking forward to our menu for the week!
