Menu Plan Monday 5/24-5/30

Last week's menu plan went pretty smoothly!  I made creamy pork over noodles rather than pork gravy over mashed potatoes for last Monday and I have to say that it was a hit with the family!

For this week’s shopping trip, I only had a $100 to work with and I was determined with calculator in hand that I was not going over that amount. I did it and still have some change leftover.   Sara over at Learning the Frugal Life is having an Eat from the Pantry Challenge during May and you can read a glimpse of the positives and negatives of the week here.

This week’s menus are either going to be quick and easy or fix it and forget it type meals!  This is crunch week for my church’s spring play that my hubby and oldest son are involved in.  My hubby is the technical director so he has lights to figure out and stage/props to finish.  My oldest son has practice every night except Wednesday night.  So hubby and oldest son will be gone every night this week!  PLUS this is the last week of soccer practices for two other sons with them having a game on Saturday.  PLUS my MIL is coming into town on Friday afternoon to be here to see soccer games Saturday morning and spring play on Saturday night.  Thankfully hubby has taken the week off from work this week so we can get in some family time despite all the activities going on.

For this week, lunches listed are for everyone!  Hubby is home all week!  Also with hubby being home this week, this menu plan might get thrown out the window! LOL It always seems that he is home things like menus get changed more!
