Menu Plan Monday: Last Week of January 2014

Welcome Monday!

Last week I went over budget on the grocery list....big time.  This week, I am on PROBATION!  

It's good to remember that just because you make a list, it's still easy to over spend, especially this time of year with out of season items.  Stocking up on pantry items and eating out of the freeze will get you back on track.

Here is our down-sized menu for the week ahead.

Remember to check out Laura's site for more menu planning ideas.


Monday: Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms and Roasted Brussels Sprouts (we will buy chicken thighs to cut down on the price)
Tuesday:  Garden Burgers with Tator Tots (always a freezer staple item we keep on hand)
Wednesday: Baked Potato Soup with a Garden Salad (soups are inexpensive to make and leftovers freeze well)
Thursday: BBQ Sirloin Steaks with 1/2 baked potato and Salad (I have 2 steaks in the freezer and we will split a potato)
