4 - 7 Layer Dip, Chips (we have stuff we need to use up!)
5 - Quesadillas, Guacamole
6 - Mom's Night Out (but I'm making Lasagna before I leave)
7 - Burgers (with some sort of veggie)
8 - Feta Pasta with Veggies
9 - Tilapia, Couscous, Broccoli
10 - Leftovers from the week

Mama to (DS 7) and (DD 5), wife to DH

Well I have our week set, though I may wiggle some things around:

Here is is:
Sun:Pork chops w/ mushroom soup gravy, stuffing, peas
Mon: Grilled salmon w/ mango salsa, curried apricot cous-cous, salad(never made the cous-cous)
Tues: Skillet turkey pot pie
Wed: Grilled greek chicken wraps w/ hummus and salad(I made this one up)
Thurs: Cobb salad and garlic bread
Fri: Tortellini sausage skillet w/ marinara sauce, salad and garlic bread
Sat: Cook's choice(as always on Sat)

These aren't set in stone, but most of the items are already on hand and are in the pantry, I will be going to the store tomorrow, and will be getting stuff for the week(and beyond). I hae to get some avocados and mango, but both are on sale, if I really wanted to I could make all these for under $30 for the week. We'll see, I have a few big ticket stock up items that I have to get tomorrow, but for most of the food stuff it's pretty cheap.

A few for this week.

All dinners served with salad and usually a veg side.

5/4- Spaghetti and meatballs
5/5-Meatballs and rice
5/6-Potato soup
5/7-Chicken Pot Pie
5/8- Beans and Rice

lunches:
gyro sandwiches and salad
picnic lunch at the park
tuna sandwiches, apples, carrot sticks
quesadillas and leftover beans and rice
mac n cheese with fruit side


Nothing excited but maybe someone shopping their pantry will find an idea.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

5-5 Chana Masala and Briyani
5-6 Spicy stir-fried tofu with dried and fresh mushrooms over brown rice
5-7 Dinner out
5-8 Black Bean polenta Casserole or Tamale Pie
5-9 Pizza night at home (starting this on Fridays this week!)
5-10 Red Beans and Rice
5-11 ? Probably something with quinoa since I have a lot of it and just discovered how much I really like it.

That's as far as I've got on this week. I'm doing the pantry challenge, too, and with all of these things I don't actually need to buy anything else for the week.
I also have a huge box of salad greens, so a large salad will be part of our meal every evening, too.

I'm so off my game

M (tonight) - meat loaf, creamed spinach, mashed potatoes
T- spaghetti (home made meat balls from the same base as meat loaf mixture, home made sauce)
W - split pea soup and corn bread
TH - grilled jerk pork chops, collards and coconut rice (stole that from someone here)
F - roast chicken
Sa - curried chicken salad (left over chicken) w/ grapes
Su - probably more pork chops, maybe with pasta salad.

at some point I am baking an apple pie. I just need to find the motivation to make the crust and prep all those apples.

Hi ladies! I would love to join this thread, I take it's just about meal planning ahead? I am not an organized person by any means so hopefully this will motivate me more. Any helpful newbie links or hints would be much appreciated!!

I do have a question and not sure if this is where to post, I keep wanting to stock my pantry full of 'staples' but it seems like I'd have to spend alot just to get it stocked - I usually buy beans, dry goods, etc. a little at a time and just joined a coop so hopefully that will help but did any of you 'vegans/non vegans on a budget' feel overwhelmed with getting staples or is it just me?

cthulhugrrl ~ Do u have a recipe for this dish? "Black Bean polenta Casserole or Tamale Pie" I have been trying to find casserole type dishes that my 14 month old will enjoy its been a challenge finding something he will hold down that doesn't consist of pasta or bread :

Thanks ladies!

nik_907-Here's what I do, first I keep track of sales, I learned this on the Frugality and Finances board on here. I started keeping track of the patterns of sales, I have tried to keep a price book, but for me I find that I have a pretty darn good memory for the stuff. That said I *am* going to start keeping track of the 20 items we buy most, as posted on another thread, this will help me know when it's the best times to stock up on these things.

Recently I have bought 2 cases of organic tomatoes, my local store(the only one we have) was selling the 28 oz cans for 1.99 a can, totally cheap, so I bought 2 cases for the reg. price of one case. I also saw that refried bean are on sale, I will be buying a case of those also. I like to have some items of convenience available to us as we live in an area where the power can often go out, so I like to have some easily reheated items, plus we use them. I have become a pretty savvy shopper thanks a lot to this site. I really only buy things on sale, you don't have to buy everything at once, just start small. My pantry is growing, but I also am getting rid of things that I don't want, but I'm more into stocking up. We have a feast or famine household, DH is really busy working then can get laid off for week in the winter, I'm kind in the squirrel hoarder mentality right now, I try to buy extra for those times when there are no extras, KWIM? Start small, and also meal planning is saving us money because of less leftovers, and because I plan according to what we have, stock up what we need when on sale, and it saves my sanity. It really has been helping us.

1. beef & bean nachos with homemade guacamole
2. 15-bean soup & cornbread
3. roast with potatoes, carrots, & green beans, rolls
4. scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits

two nights of leftovers, one night out

I think I found this in the frugality forum on the $2 and under meals thread. But I just copied and sent it to myself in an email (that's how I keep track of all the recipes I want to try )

So yeah, without some major digging I don't know who credit this to, but here it is:

A cheap meal I make for the two of us is a polenta and blackbean casserole!
Sooo good!!

1 can of black beans(dried are cheaper..I use 1/2 can for two people)
cornmeal(follow package to make polenta)
garlic cloves(as many as you'd like)
1/2 carrot
1 stock celery
1 onion
1/2 can corn(for two of us)
salsa(this is where it gets expensive...I buy the cheapo biggest jug of salsa around 7 bucks here and it lasts like 5 differrent meals where I use salsa!)

Make the polenta(season with chili, oregano, anything you have on hand)
Put the polenta into a casserole dish, bake to harden(15 min)

Dice garlic, carrot, celery onion, mix corn and beans all together. Pour on top of polenta then pour salsa on top and bake!!


I haven't tried this yet, and to be honest I probably would do things drastically different when I make my own (probably white hominy instead of corn and salsa verde instead of tomato, etc). Think the idea of it sounds yummy!

Well I have so much food in the house we really could have just about anything we want, but here it is:

Sun: Quiche(had mass eggs to use up and little tidbits in the fridge) and yummy salad

Mon: Turkey manicotti(made one for tonight and one for the freezer)

Tues: Teriyaki pork kabobs with pineapple and couscous

Wed: Grilled steaks with baked potatoes, and salad

Thurs: Chicken Fettuccini, garlic bread and salad

Fri: Pizza(thinking ham, broccoli, and alfredo sauce)

Sat: As always cooks choice

I have a super stocked household and I have been pantry challenging it also, but I am in the midst of a MAJOR stockpiling of everything. My goal is to not have to really shop for meat, canned goods, for a few weeks. My pantry is almost taking on a life of it's own.

I just wanted to say, I've been so inspired to meal plan (from you ladies!) that I did, for the whole month. I made a little folder with 20 meals (5 per week for a month, we usually have leftovers once, and go to family/friends once a week) and shopping lists for each week. Our 'before' grocery budget was $80-$100, for 3 adults and two children. I have cut that to $40 a week!!!! AND, this week, most everything (veggies/fruit/milk/meat) I bought was organic!!! Yes, I even was able to buy organic meat, since I cut back the number of meat dishes we make, and am only using 4 oz of meat per person.
It feels so good, to go to the store all organized and not wasting our money on last minute buys. I only buy what is on my list, and allow myself to get one 'fun' thing if I stay within my budget. This week it was some interesting simmer sauces (3-$10) from Target. We rarely eat Indian food, since I don't know how to make it, and we dont have the spices. But with one jar, I am able to make 2 Chicken dishes, and we had some fun Indian flavored food!! Next week, I'm getting the Asian inspired one! Can't wait!

Doesn't it just feel so good, to be organized and prepared. I only started meal planning a month ago, but we are loving it. For me it's nice to just know what we are having, instead of waiting until mid-day and going, hmmm I wonder what we should have tonight?? DH has been all for it, he is also liking the fact. Although, I have been frequenting the store, but I am searching out very good deals(my store has a bunch) and I have been feeding my pantry and living off it at the same time. I love menu planning, I really enjoy trying something new every week. Last night I made these AWESOME kabobs using a teriyaki pork tenderloin and pineapple, OMG they were so good. Tonight I have steaks that are already marinated in sauce and will be eating those and big ol baked potatoes(YUM). I love that you can plan ahead, follow sales, save $$$ and eat great stuff. Tonights dinner I think will end up costing about $1 per person, plus we should have some leftovers.

Well here is this week for us. Believe it or not I have everything we need for this whole week without having to go to the store (and I haven't been since last week). Oh well I am buying produce at the farmer's market, but that is it. I have way too much food in the house that we need to use up. And, I am trying to keep it simple so that I can keep up.

18 - Pork Chops, Potaoes/Zucchini w/ Parmesan
19 - Spinach Feta Chicken, Sweet Potato Fries, Salad
20 - Burgers, Salad
21 - Leftovers
22 - Chicken Pasta Salad
23 - Fish, Broccoli, Parmesan Rice
24 - Spaghetti with homemade sauce, Salad, Garlic bread
25 - Quesadillas w/ guacamole

5-11 ? Probably something with quinoa since I have a lot of it and just discovered how much I really like it.
Sorry I missed it -- I'll be happy to come over this week, though!
