Menu Plan Monday - July 7th

Hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th weekend! As enjoyable as the long weekend was, it's time to get back to the routine. This week begins an exciting journey for us. Ashleigh takes her first steps into elementary school! Which means I'm going to have to step up my menu planning to include lunch box items.

To get started, I made a list of all the main meals and snacks that Ashleigh would most likely eat. And as my mother used to say about me, she eats like a bird! So needless to say there were alot more items under the snack category than under the main meal category. But it's a start!

Here's our meals for the week. For more meal ideas visit Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie.

Breakfast & Lunches - Items already on hand


Saturday - Leftover BBQ sandwiches with cole slaw, beans and corn on the cob & Hot dogs

Sunday - Spinach Lasagna

Monday - Smoked sausage with onions & peppers over brown rice

Tuesday - Whole wheat pasta with marinara sauce & honey wheat bread

Wednesday - Seven Layer Taco Salad (didn't get to make it last week)

Thursday - Dirty Rice (using ground pork sausage)

Grocery Totals - Total spent: $85.60

Have a great week!

The dirty rice sounds yummy and simple to make.
I think we are going to have that this week too!
