Meny Plan Monday

Monday, August 13, 2007


Well, the financial situation has seemingly abated, but it's a nice feeling to know that despite the low finances we've been able to eat well, and even have food in the house. I did the shopping this morning for the coming week, and apart for $5 I need to spend still on veggies later in the week for stir fry, I came in under $50 for the week. Not a bad effort.

Monday - Meat pie, mashed potato & peas & corn
Tuesday - Apricot Chicken Drumsticks, rice & beans
Wednesday - Sausages & potato salad
Thursday - Crumbed chicken & Potato salad
Friday - Dinner out (we're childless)
Saturday - Pork Stir Fry (childless again and the kids don't like it)
Sunday - Roast chicken, roast veggies and Apple crumble for dessert

I picked up some more great meat specials this week. 700g of Stir Fry Pork for $5, 6 chicken burger patties for $4, and 4 lamb chops for $3.50. The last two will go in the freezer for next week.

    Sounds good!

    Just have to tell you... up until a week or so ago, I had this exact same template. You're the first person I've seen who has also used it! :)
