Menu Plan Monday

This week, I am borrowing a lot of ideas from this great blog that I found! She has so many great ideas on cutting your grocery bill and I am going to try and see if I can make it work for us!

So, here is this week's menu:


German Pancake & Fruit
Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
Cinnamon Toast & Fruit
Amish Baked Oatmeal & Scrambled Eggs
Baked Creme Brulee Oatmeal & Fruit
Eggs, Sausage, Baked French Toast


Grilled Cheese
Breakfast Burritos
Bean & Cheese Burritos
Tuna Salad Sandwiches

Dinner or Supper:

Broccoli Rice Quiche, Salad

Loaded Baked Potatoes, Salad

Grilled Smoked Sausages on buns, Kraut, Relish, the works, Salad, Cherry Fluff (recipe below)

Rosemary Grilled Chicken (Rachael Ray 30 minute meals), New Potatoes, Squash (fresh from the garden, yum!)

Chicken Fried Rice, Salad

Oven Fried Chimichangas, Salad

Ribeyes, Salad, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dessert (Charlie's dessert of choice; Father's Day!)

Sounds yummy & pretty cheap, too! The chicken meals will be made with 1 jumbo package of chicken thighs cooked and shredded. The salad & veggies are all from the garden (except the broccoli). So, that is going to help a lot. Well, there you go, our Menu Plan this week! I will let you know how well it goes over with our family.

Head over to Laura's for more menu plan ideas!

Cherry Fluff:

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (16 oz) container Cool Whip, thawed
1 (20 oz) can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 (20 0z) can cherry pie filling
1/2 c. chopped pecans(optional)
3 drops red food coloring (optional)

Fold milk into Cool whip in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and Stir gently but mix well. Chill at least 1 hr. before serving.

What a great menu plan! I wish I was harvesting from my little garden already. At least I can use the herbs. If you like the recipe for the Rosemary Grilled Chicken will you share it? I have a bunch of rosemary and don't have a lot of recipes to use it in. Plus a little of it goes a long way.

I can't wait to try those Boston Cream Cupcakes you linked to. They look delicious!

Hope you have a great week!
