It's Monday again and that means it is time to plan our meals for the week. It is so nice to have stress-free mealtimes because I know ahead of time what we are having each night and I am not caught in that last minute meal-time panic! We have a menu full of healthy and frugal options this week. What's on your meal plan?
Recipe database! In case you missed my post last week, we now have a great new Recipe Database with recipes I refer to in the meal plan often as well as recipes from Brian Shrader and Lisa, Sarah at Go Ask Mom and more! Click the "Search WRAL Recipes" in the box above to see available recipes.
Grilled fat free turkey hot dogs
Sautéed zucchini, squash, mushrooms and onions (all deals at Aldi this week)
Pasta salad with tomatoes, black olives, and yellow peppers
Out to dinner with the family using a Groupon to celebrate my 5th grader “graduating” from elementary school (yes, they actually have a graduation ceremony at the high school for elementary school kids) and my 7th grader getting through her Algebra EOC. We are all so happy this school year is coming to a close that we simply have to celebrate!
