Menu Plan Monday 2/1-2/7

Last week's menu plan went pretty smoothly. There was just one “hiccup” where I didn’t get my roast, carrots, and potatoes meal in the crockpot on time for it to be ready for our dinner hour. I had a “plan B meal” in place just in case so we ended up going with the “plan B meal” and the roast dinner ended up being a simple heat-up for the following day! I tried a new recipe by tweaking it for my family’s tastes. The dish was a success and will definitely be making it to my master main dish list.

This week’s shopping trip was a little different for me in that I really did not use much in the way of coupons and still saved money by shopping at Save A Lot & Aldis and the sales at the grocery stores.

This week’s menus are another round of family favorites. I decided to give my family a break from the new dishes by doing the tried & true recipes.

Lunches listed are for the kids & me. Unless we are having leftovers, our lunches are served with apple slices or baby carrots along with fruit juice or water. Hubby usually takes a dinner leftover for his work lunch.
