Menu Plan Monday January 3

I won’t say I will commit to this on a weekly basis, but I want to show you what I am doing to help not only budget my meals better, but try and keep from making 4 trips to the store in one week.  It’s true you always spend more when you go more often.

Sunday: Panko Chicken with Basil Aioli.

Monday: Sausage Bean Soup

Tuesday: French Dip – nothing fancy, just beef broth and roast in a crockpot, then put it on toasted buns.  If you want to get fancy you can add a beer.

Wednesday: Meatballs, baked potatoes, rolls, salad

Thursday: Costco Chicken.  My son catches a bus for Snowboard team so I need something easy for him that we can also have without making 2 complete meals.

Friday: Chicken Tortilla Soup:  No recipe, just a can of corn, can of black beans, can of diced tomatoes, chicken broth, chicken (either left over or something in the freezer), salsa (to spice it up a bit more), and optional toppings like chips, avocado and sour cream.

Saturday: Tacos
