Menu plan for the week

Since we'll be getting in late Sunday night after an awesome weekend with family, I thought it'd be nice to have our menu plan all laid out in advance. I was so excited to browse the store ads this week and find that just about everything we needed was on sale. :)

Eggs- 1.29
Chicken legs (59 cents a pound) 3.66
Pears (99 cents a pound) 1.13
Fells naptha soap (for homemade laundry detergent)- .99
5 pounds potatoes- 2.99
Unbleached flour- 2.42
Butter- 2.54
Salad dressing - 1.78

Total: 18.31

So here's the menu for the week.

Breakfasts~

Pumpkin muffins (they're oh so yummy and so autumnal!)
Granola with homemade yogurt
Eggs and toast
Cooked oatmeal or cold cereal
Pancakes with applesauce
Scrambled eggs and cinnamon bread

Dinner~

Saturday and Sunday enjoying time with family in Missouri. Hurrah! :)

Monday- Chili with cornbread (Oh! I just love soup season! :)

Tuesday- Shepherd's pie with corn and bread

Wednesday- Chicken enchiladas with salad

Thursday- Baked potatoes, homemade bread and salad

Friday- Shrimp and pasta salad

We often have baked potatoes for dinner. They are so good and with a salad, I think it is a perfect fast and easy dinner. Thanks for sharing. Stacy
