Weekly meal plans and Monday menus

Posted August 28

Here's the place to share your meal ideas for the evening or the week, post where you bought the ingredients frugally and even share a recipe if you would like.

If you need some inspiration for your own dinner tonight, take a look at the Comments section to see the meals posted by other readers.

What's on your menu tonight?

I don't have a full meal plan again this week. My dad is recovering well from surgery. Thanks to everyone for your advice and kind thoughts. My brothers flew in from other parts of the country to help out for a few days and I have no idea what they will want for dinner. I'll be batch cooking some meals later in the week.

I am pretty sure we will be having:

Creamy chicken and cheese pasta dish I posted to the Smart Shopper Facebook page last week

Salmon we found marked down to 99 cents for 5 oz packages at Food Lion last week (and froze)

Cheese tortellini from HT SD Sunday

Turkey sausage with veggies and rice

    lindabates - great menu this week! I'm all in for the cinnamon rolls! :-)

    aerogirl2084 - I didn't make the eggs for lunch as planned but I am am hoping to make a big batch of egg salad tomorrow to share with my dad. Thanks for the great idea! I picked up the eggs at HT today for $1.29 for the 18 count.

    Thursday: baked spaghetti and salad.

    Must be an egg kind of day -- the only thing I had "planned" thus far for the week is a batch of homemade egg salad, which should last a couple of days for sandwiches. Happy Monday to all!

    Happy Monday everyone!

    barbiedoll1967 - that sounds good! I think I am having eggs for lunch, actually. :-)

    I think tonight is going to be an egg sandwich. I have some eggs that have run out of date a few days ago and I need to use them up.
