Menu Monday: Fun, Fun, Fun

Chance has extra time off this week and we plan to have fun.  All those meals I made last week were straight from our freezer and pantry, except for a very few items, so I've most of my budget this week for foods we enjoy only occasionally.  Some take out, some grocery specials and low cooking.  That's my plan.

Breakfasts will be easy to make: cereal and toast, croissants and homemade yogurt, bagels and cream cheese, fruit salad, etc.

Suppers will consist of leftovers or easy heat and eat meals: grilled sandwiches, nachoes, etc.

Monday:  Steak, Baked Potato, Roasted Asparagus, Strawberries and Cream

Tuesday:  Take out Chicken Dinner with sides

Wednesday:  Deli Chicken, Deli Macaroni Salad, Grape Tomatoes, Watermelon

Thursday:  Macaroni and Cheese, Steamed Green Beans, Sliced Tomatoes

Friday:  Hot Dogs, French Fries, Baked Beans, Coleslaw

Saturday:  Sloppy Joes, Chips, Coleslaw (leftovers)

Sunday:  Chicken Noodle Soup, Fruit Salad
(after two deli roasted chickens (1 last week, 1 this week), I expect to use the carcasses to make a pot of soup and offset the costs of the week.
