Menu Plan Monday 2014 ~ Week of January 13th

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a list of meals that I planned on preparing throughout the month.  The meals I chose were budget-friendly and we had most of the ingredients already in our pantry and freezer.  

I wish I could say that we were able to stay away from the grocery stores.  We seem to always run out of bread and milk and other necessary items that require a trip to the market.  Aside from the bread and milk, any other items that we've picked up (spaghetti, vegetables, etc.) have always been on sale.  And while we haven't been able to avoid the grocery store, we have stuck to eating at home.  No dining out and no take-out.  I will admit that we have treated Grace to her Happy Meals when we're out.  

Over the past two weeks, we've enjoyed some delicious dinners:  15 Bean Soup, Red Lentils and Rice, Goulash, Pulled Pork with Potato Salad, Enchilada Chicken Chili over rice, hot dogs served with baked potatoes and baked beans.   We also enjoyed a foil pack dinner of a patty of ground beef topped with thinly sliced vegetables.  I especially loved how simple it was to prepare that meal!  

I think I'm better organized this week and may be able to really limit what we need from the store.
