Menu Plan Monday 10/29/07

As busy as we have been lately, this week will be a designated "cheat" week. We are trying to keep it simple so I can cook quickly before the baby starts fussing, plus we are trying to eat fairly cheaply after the last two high spending weeks. Here's the menu thanks to Kraft's One Bag= 5 Dinners ;)

Monday- leftovers
Tuesday- Tex-Mex Rollups with Rice and Refried Beans
Wednesday- Meatloaf and baked fries
Thursday- dinner with friends, make salad and dessert
Friday- Fiesta Chicken Pasta with Corn and Salad
Saturday- Chicken and Rice, Zesty Green Beans
Sunday- Cheesy Chicken Soup (double batch for next week too) and Bread

The menu is based on one bag of groceries, which should cost about $37 for this week of meals based on what I usually buy (turkey instead of beef, generic brands instead of Kraft). The Cheesy Chicken Soup is a large batch and isn't part of the Kraft one bag, but is part of the $37 budget.
Here's a link to Kraft's One Bag= 5 Dinners.

I get a kick out of you using store brands as opposed to some Kraft products in your "Kraft's One Bag=5 dinners" :)

Great work!
