Cheap and Easy Recipes ~ Weekly Meal Plan September 30-October 6, 2012

Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend! Did you do anything fun? Saturday, I took my camera down to Best Buy for repair. The shutter wasn’t opening properly and I wasn’t able to take many pictures this past weekend. I’ll have too resort back to my smaller digital camera for the upcoming week. I have to mention that I’m so glad I purchased a 3-year warranty on my camera. It might not be repairable so I may end up getting a new camera. We’ll see what the Geek Squad says.

After arriving back home, I started in on laundry and a few other household chores and helping our 6th grader pack for science camp this week. He’ll be away from us for a whole week. ūüôĀ We crossed off eveything on the list of what to bring with a few extra items.

This week, I’m sharing my family’s favorite fast, frugal…fabulous meals! I’m creating delicious comforting meals that S-t-r-e-t-c-h our budget! ¬†(This may be a theme for one of my local cooking classes in the future.)

My weekly meal plan and shopping list is completed and posted on our fridge:

Breakfast options:

Green Smoothie, Muffins, Fresh Fruit, Homemade Greek Yogurt, cereal, toast, and eggs

Lunch options:

Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Pizza bagels, leftovers, protein shakes, salad, fresh cut veggies and/or fruit

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? It’s time for another weekly menu.  I enjoy menu planning because of  the simplicity it provides for my life. It enables me to decrease my grocery shopping excursions to twice a month and it allows me to  have more free time to focus on my family and home. For ideas in the weekly meal plan, we’ll be focusing on a variety of family meals. You’ll find the recipes on the weekly meal plan also available on my Recipe Index page with a grocery list included.

Dinner (recipes will post throughout the week)
