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.


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


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
