One thing we have been doing to save money is planning our meals ahead, and of course doing more bulk cooking. I recently noticed a several other frugal and money saving bloggers are taking part in something called Meal Planning Monday. I love the idea! It’s a great way to get new and fresh recipe ideas for your family!
So, I decided to give it a try this week, and post our meal plan here. You can check out all the other meal planners for this week at OrgJunkie.
Our meal plan for the week of 1/12/09:
Lemon garlic chicken breasts (thanks Angel Food ministries) with teriyaki noodles
Beef pot roast (via crock pot) with carrots, mashed potatoes, white gravy
Slow cooked BBQ baby back pork ribs (thanks Angel Food ministries) with green beans
Smoked sausage and Yukon gold potato bake
Chicken breast patties and french fries (thanks Angel Food ministries)
As you can see, we use Angel Food ministries food quite a bit. We love the stuff we get from there, and it really stretches our food budget.
