Menu Plan Monday 8/3-8/9

**Another week is upon us so that means it is time for another menu plan! This is just a plan and it could change on the cook’s whim!

Last week’s menus went off without too much trouble! I did get some of my baking that I had planned done but I still have several things that I need to do so that my family doesn't start complaining of having nothing good to snack on or eat for breakfast! I did have to change some of the dinner meals around on the different days because I was getting a few complaints of the same types of meals being served. For instance, we had creamy chicken (#1), noodles and green beans for dinner last Monday so hubby didn’t want to have Easy Beef Stroganoff (no mushrooms and making own beef gravy), noodles, peas/salad, and biscuits later in the week so I moved that meal to this week and did something quick that night.

This week’s grocery shopping was more of a stockpile shopping week. I am to the point where I should just need to go after milk and fresh produce for this week! Come back later in the week to see if I did that or if I couldn’t help myself with the sales that are going on this week!! One of my favorite stores is having a 10 for $10 get 11th item Free Sale which has several good items!!!

Lunches listed are for the kids and me. Usually with our lunches I served carrot sticks, and some kind of fruit along with juice to drink. Hubby usually takes dinner leftovers each day along with several items for snacks.
