Menu Plan Monday 6/7-6/13

Last week's menu plan went pretty smoothly! I did have to get “take out” on Saturday night because we were busy all day and nothing was started in the crockpot. However, we were at my parents’ house unloading some sand on their property and were treated by them to Wendy’s.

For this week’s shopping trip, I stayed under my $100 budget. I purchased milk, eggs, fruit and then some deals that were not easy to pass up.

This week’s menus are cleaning out the freezer and pantry meals! It is the week before payday on the 15th so it is time to stretch what is on hand rather than do more shopping.

For this week, lunches listed are for the kids and I except for Monday! Unless we are having leftovers, our lunches are served with apple slices or carrot sticks along with fruit juice or water. Hubby usually takes a dinner leftover along with various snacks for his work lunch.
