Hi, mind if I join? so many great ideas on this thread! you ladies are so inspiring!

Money is super tight for the next couple of weeks so I am planning to do as much as possible from the pantry/fridge/freezer without shopping. And I think that posting here will help keep me on task--these are all meals I brainstormed from stuff I already have on hand.

Here's what I have planned so far:

13: dijon-tarragon sauced chicken breasts, short grain brown rice, balsamic glazed turnips, green salad
14: spaghetti with marinara sauce & cannellini beans, green salad
15: salmon-rice patties (made with leftover rice) with yogurt-tahini sauce, green salad
16: sauteed breaded pork cutlets w/ cheddar-mustard sauce, roasted fingerlings, frozen peas
17: sweet potato & black bean enchiladas, Mexican style quinoa
18: lentil minestrone w/ whole grain crusty bread (from freezer)
19: nachos with refried beans, cheese, salsa & guacamole, leftover quinoa

Hi everyone,

Just found this thread and thought I'd like to chime in, if you don't mind. I menu-plan a month at a time, and have been doing so for over 5 years now. Now and then, I fall off the wagon and wing it, but mostly I stick to it b/c it makes such a difference in both my stress level and in our grocery budget. I do my menus on the computer, and after the month is over, I just file them in the back of my recipe binder -- that way, I have years' worth of menus to look back on to give me ideas if I'm feeling uninspired. I'm all about not reinventing the wheel, yk?

Oh, and a * indicates that I doubled or tripled the recipe to freeze for later...
