Mr K is not a fan of a weekly menu but I am. He is going to try it my way for awhile. Especially since our little man is starting Kindergarten this week. I don't think Mr. K understands how super busy he will be.
That is not the only reason we will try it my way. We are also fans of Dave Ramsey. We budget down to our last dollar. We spend $300 a month on groceries out of our budget. We also have challenged ourselves (and our waistlines) to eat out only 4 times a month. So far so good! So here is my menu for this week.
Sunday: Nacho Bar- (our favorite night!)
Monday: Spinach and Tomato Pizza's on FlatBread
Tuesday: Minestrone and Garlic Cheese Bread
Wednesday: Tuna Melts
Thursday: Parmasan Minute Steaks
Friday: Tortellini Carbonara
Saturday: Crockpot Cranberry Chicken with Stuffing
It is so nice to have my kitchen back!
In order to stay organized I have worked my butt off in getting my recipes in order. I found this adorable metal box to hold them all. I then went through all my scrapping scraps and cut the scraps to fit the box. Of course then I had to embellish the divider cards! I still have a ton more recipes to copy and clip. I may have to look for a second box! I am also addicted to a few cooking sites. Tasty Kitchen and $5 Dinners.
I have also had to go to a dry erase board to keep track of everyone. With soccer, school, and boy scouts starting soon we will be an on the go family. I found this nice little one that fits perfectly on the fridge! If I move on of our nine million magnets that is!
We now have a little guy to pack lunch for everyday. If anyone has good lunch box ideas or know of any sites let me know! Poor guy has limited choices at the moment! Due to mom's lack of creativity!
