So not much has been going on this week. Trying to stay home and not spend money. We are pretty tight with our last money coming in, it wasn't the greatest (at least the bills our paid and we can eat) God has really been good to us since DH startd his own business. So to not leave the house to much I decided to do a two week menu plan instead of a week. Figure if I need to get out of the house then we will just have to freeze it out at the park (brr it sure is getting cold here)

Plus we are hopefully taking a dirt bike trip the second weekend of October so I'd like to have some money for that too.

So here are a meals for the next two weeks. I don't set a specific day for these. It is just easier for me to decide that day which one I will make.

-2 days for leftovers

-1 free night (we sometimes make meals w/ friends so I like to leave a night open for this)

-Oven fried Chicken Chimichangas, refried beans

-Chicken over biscuits

-Pulled pork sandwiches, fries

-Breakfast for dinnner (pancakes, sausage)
-Meatloaf, cheesy potatoes

-Homemade Chili w/ fritos
-German Style pork chops w/noodles
* As a note these are the best. They are so good. Yummo!!!

A dessert for this week-
No bake cookies

I understand completely about penny pinching! You did a great job with setting up your menu for the two weeks----flexible too! BTW--I love having breakfast for dinner too! There is something about it that makes it comforting!

Your meal plan is great! I'm working on a budget too and actually plan for 2 weeks at a time. It saves money when I go to the store and do one big trip, instead of several over the 2 week period.

I'm going to add those German pork chops to my favs.

Mandy said...

I am so impressed with your menu planning...that is one area that I'm sadly deficient in. LOL :)

Denise said...

I have a rotating list of standards for the month...sometimes what I plan for a week ends up stretching 2 weeks!

yum, breakfast for dinner. Haven't done that in a while.

Take care.

Noelia said...

Oh my goodness, your menu looks delish! I love pulled pork! I plan our meals for a week as well. I do groceries only once and I've noticed since I started planning that there's a lot less wasted food and I also buy less and save $.
Thanks for sharing those ideas!
