Weekly Menu Plan #2

 photo menuplanbutton_zps2e0e0fd6.png

Morning lovelies! I am writing this post on Friday, since I know my hubby is coming home this weekend and the last thing I will want to do is menu plan, so I am trying to get some things done ahead of time. I plan to do nothing but hug that man of mine this weekend. He also has some red heads that are missing him like crazy, so we are going to be catching up on some family time.

This week's menu is printable and consist of five recipes. I have included ways to make your meals stretch and roll over into other meals throughout the week, so you actually can end up with 7-8 meals. More than enough for the week. I always like to have a leftover day and usually a homemade pizza night on Fridays. We sometimes pair this with soda, I buy it when it is 99 cents or cheaper. This is a real treat for my littles on Fridays:) Pop in a movie and you have a quick and easy family night in the making!

This week all of my recipe's come from 101 Homestyle Favorites by Gooseberry Patch. I found this gem via ebay for just a few dollars!

Don't forget to scroll all the way down for the printable recipes :)

Hope you are all having a fantastic start to your week.
Stay frugal!

Weekly Menu Plan #1

Good morning Lovelies! I'm a week late starting our weekly meal plans for 2014, the flu hit us and it hit strong. We are all better now and I am ready to start this year off right! I have a goal of taking it slow this year and creating a more peaceful home. I feel like when our meals are planned out, then I become a happier Momma. When I am a happier Mom, than we definitely have a more peaceful home. Our day just flows more smoothly and we have more time for fun, since the "What should I make for dinner?" question has already been answered.

The print out also has all the cookbooks I used sited. All of this weeks cookbooks were ones I found via ebay. I love searching ebay for fun, new cookbooks. You can always find great books for a fraction of the "new in store" price. 

Hope you are all having a fantastic start to this new year.
Stay frugal!

Good Morning Lovelies! I have some yummy recipes this week...like pigs in a blanket. Oh my these things are good.

There is really something for everyone. So get your menu plan on and be awesome this week!

Saturday June 1- Friday June 7
BBQ hamburgers with French fries and fruit
spaghetti night (with ground turkey)
meatloaf with mashed potatoes and vegetables
pizza night
breakfast night
pigs in a blanket with broccoli salad
leftovers

Thrifty Living Tips and Tricks
-On Spaghetti Night I will reserve 1 cup of spaghetti sauce to use on pizza night. I also only use ½ lb of ground sausage in my sauce. I save the other half for meatloaf night.
-On breakfast night I will be doing pancakes and bacon. Making extra pancakes to have during the following days for breakfast is always smart! Just store in your fridge or freezer and microwave for about 1 minute and eat on busy mornings. I store mine in gallon size freezer bags. Rinse them out when you are done and use again!
-I will also save leftover bacon on breakfast night to use in my broccoli salad. Saving leftovers and preparing ahead saves you time in the kitchen throughout the week!

All of my tips and tricks are ones I have learned from Cut Your Grocery Bill in Half with America's Cheapest Family. This book is my thrifty living bible :)
