Weekly Supper Menu

Ok.  The last two weeks of supper meal planning have been a learning experience.  The plans have worked well except for Friday nights.  Why do the Friday night plans change?  Hmmm, whatever could be the problem?  I think I know…it is the end of the week and I am just tired and ready for something quick and easy.  Lesson learned.

Last week, I only had to stop at my local grocery for a few perishable foods and only spent about $30.00.  Yay!!  This week I will probably have to make a trip to the next town to visit a bigger grocery to re-stock the fridge and pantry with a few items.  I had planned on waiting until the end of the week to do this, but Mother Nature has other plans, so I guess that means a mid-week grocery shopping excursion.  Woo hoo!  Here is this week’s supper plans:

Tonight: Supper at my nanny’s-I made cookies for dessert.

Monday: Supper at C’s mom and dad’s-more cookies for dessert

Tuesday: Tacos and fruit salad

Wednesday-Grocery night means supper out.

Thursday-Apple cinnamon pancakes and sausage

Friday-Chili & grilled cheese (I still have one container of chili left in the freezer.)

Saturday-Hot cheese dip with chips

This is getting easier.  By watching what I fix from week to week, I can tell which nights are good “cooking” nights and which nights are good for quick and easy meals.  Again, I would love to know your opinions on this.  Leave a comment for me and let me know!
