Menu Plan 9/23

My maternal grandmother passed so I didn't keep up with anything much for a week. Getting back into my new routine now.

Sunday 9/23- A lazy and cheap mac-n-cheese mixed with cut up hot dogs.
Monday 9/24-Spaghetti
Tuesday 9/25- Crockpot Chicken
Wednesday 9/26- Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Thursday 9/27- Chicken dumpling
Friday 9/28- Tuna Cakes w/ salad
Saturday 9/29- Chicken Parmesan

All I need to buy for the week is milk for everyone (whole and 2%). Salad. And some more stuff I can't remember right now. (wow. My grammar skills are awesome.) I'm guessing I only need to spend around $25.00.

Homemade Drano

The sink in my downstairs bath was beginning to slowly drain down. I went to pull out some Drano to clear the clog and low and behold: No Drano! My car was in the shop and Big Dude was at work so I couldn't get to the store. After a quick search on Google I found this recipe:

Menu Plan 9/9/12

Last week's menu went really good overall. Friday night was a bust as I went at 6:30 to pick up some fast food (oops) instead of LO Chicken salad sandwiches. And Big Dude wanted crock pot roast chicken (again) Saturday so we had that and moved the Crock Pot BBQ ribs to Sunday night (Little Dude loved the ribs!)

Sunday 9/9- Crockpot BBQ beef ribs (Little Dude loved them!)
Monday 9/10-Chicken enchiladas with homemade refried beans (leftover black bean mix to use in tortillas also)
Tuesday 9/11- Chicken and spinach pizza with white sauce
Wednesday 9/12 (Big Dude's birthday)- Whatever he wants at home/out to eat
Thursday 9/13-Crab cakes and salad
Friday 9/14-Penne pasta with chicken and creamy white sauce
Saturday 9/15-Pulled pork bbq sandwiches

All I need to buy this week is milk, eggs, fruit, sandwich bread, and a few snacks. I'm gonna set my budget around $25.00 for the week. Last week I was over by 12 dollars.

Menu plan 9/2/12

First week of September menu plan:

Breakfast and Lunch aren't on here. Breakfast is just me and Little Dude all week long so I keep it simple. Scrambled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, etc. Lunch is either LO's or sandwiches.

Sunday 9/2-  Meatloaf (added in black beans, super yummy),mashed potatoes, corn
Monday 9/3 (Labor Day). Day got away from me. Leftovers.
Tuesday 9/4- Tilapia and Shrimp with broccoli.
Wednesday 9/5- Crockpot chicken, homemade gravy, mac-n-cheese, veggies. (save leftover chicken for round 2 meal)
Thursday 9/6- Blackbean burgers, homemade potato salad, veggies
Friday 9/7- LO Chicken Salad sandwiches (round 2 meal)
Saturday 9/8- Crockpot bbq beef ribs

All I need to buy right now is potatoes for Thursday night. I'll look at the sales adds tonight and see whats a good deal that I need to buy for next week. My budget for tomorrow will be around $60.00.
