Last week I ended up not cooking two of the days I had planned to. Tuesday we went out to dinner and Thursday my mom invited us over and she cooked. Last night we had Jon's birthday party and everyone had a great time. I stuck to my menu for the rest of the week, just switching things around based on time each day.
Here is my plan for this week. It is a short one because we are headed up to Maine on Thursday and I don't know how we will share the meal planning and cooking up there with Jon's family.
mac and cheese
Monday- Breakfast for dinner. A family favorite! Homemade pancakes, eggs, strawberries and sausage. Total cost for 4= $4
Tuesday- Turkey Empanadas Grande with homemade dough - $5.50 for four servings
Wednesday- Shrimp stir fry (this is a great meal to clean out the veggies from the fridge before we leave for the weekend)- total cost for 4= $6
