Menu Plan Monday ~ January 11, 2010

We got some not so terrific news today…the house we’ve been renting has been sold.  The new landlords take over on February 1st.  What this means is that we are most likely going to have to find temporary housing from the time our lease ends (June 30th) until our new house closes on October 6th.  UGH!  That’s going to cost.  We are hoping beyond hope that we can negotiate with the new landlords for a 4 month extension.  Wish us luck.

Here’s our menu for the week:

Day Meal  Cost
Sunday Cranberry Roast, Mashed Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts $10.28
Monday Chicken Stove Top Stuffing Casserole, Rice $11.07
Tuesday Swedish Pork Chops, Roast Potatoes, Broccoli $9.48
Wednesday Crockpot Lasagne $13.24
Thursday Pasta E Fagoli Soup $9.25
Friday Tilapia, Rice, Veggies $13.69
Saturday Hot Dogs, French Fries, Coleslaw $6.50**

 **The 3 grups are going out to dinner on Saturday night in honour of Amy’s Birthday on the 8th.  We waited until my boys were at their dads house so we can save on babysitting.  Only Charlotte, Austan and the Meri-saur are having the hotdogs this week.

So our total dinner costs this week are $73.51 for our meals at home.  We’ve budgeted for Amy’s dinner and the babysitter by stashing money away for a few weeks.  We also have $50 in gift certificates for the restaurant we’re going to.

Have a great week everyone!

  1. It’s absolutely amazing how you have such great meals for such a wonderfully teeny food jar budget.

  2. I love your goal widgets on the sidebar! Where did you find them?
