menu plan monday...

although it is tuesday, here is our menu plan for the next two weeks for dinners.

note: over the last few weeks, especially with having all the kids with me, i have begun planning and shopping for two weeks worth of meals, it is helping our budget and my sanity!!! this week i shopped at costco and the harris teeter express lane (online ordering). i took all four kids to costco on friday. and couldn't bring myself to do aldi's with all four today, so i shopped the vic specials at harris teeter and combined with what i had in the refrigerator - i manage to stay in budget!!!! woo hooo!!!!!

our dinners should get us through about 2 weeks - we will be having leftovers probably two nights as well, i can not let food go to waste!!!!

here are our simple summer meals:

spaghetti and meatballs (will make the sauce in the crockpot!) w/ garlic bread

chicken caesar wraps w/ sun chips & fruit

shrimp & grits with bacon and chives

chicken fettucini alfredo w/ salad

bratwursts w/ mac n cheese & sliced cantaloupe

lasagna in the crockpot w/ garlic bread & salad

chicken crescent squares w/ creamy spinach tortellini

sausage & pepperoni party pizzas - {simple, cheap & easy}

ground beef tacos w/ chips n salsa & refried beans

philly cheese steaks w/ chips

crispy chicken wraps w/ fruit salad

** if anything sounds yummy to you, feel free to ask for a recipe, i will be glad to share!!!

Dawn, Don't you just love Aldi's? I think their prices are just the best around especially for NJ I wish we had a Costco we have either Sam's Club or BJ's ! Can you please post the recipe for Crock-Pot Lasagna? That sounds different and easy!! I also do a meal plan, Haven't in the last few weeks. Two of my friends are so organized that they acutally have a 12 week rotation and the other one has a 62 week rotation!! Only in my dreams LOL!!! Thanks for posting!!
Blessings,
