Menu Plan Monday

I've been reading my other money saving food blogs and every week they do a Menu Plan Monday. I enjoy reading what they do so I'm going to start doing this occasionally (I'd like to say all the time, but I'm sure I'll skip a few). When I grocery shop I always have a weekly meal plan. It is the best way to stay organized and save money for me. Check out Organizing Junkie for more great menu ideas. At Kroger this week chicken is on sale for $1.79 per pound and the rotisserie chickens are $3.99. I have a loadable Kroger plus coupon for $2 off so that is why its a chicken week! I will post the recipes after I make it for step by step pictures and instructions, but I also linked to them from where I originally got them. This week it's a kraft foods week. If you haven't been to their website you need to check it out and make an account. You can store all your recipes in a recipe box and come back and look at all of them.

Wednesday- Italian Chicken Quesadillas
Friday- Grilled Chicken Bruschetta with vegetables
Saturday-Steeplechase! (more on this later)

Welcome to the menu planning bandwagon. If you're working on trimming the budget for groceries, you'll quickly find that it really helps.
I love reading everyone else's menu plans too. It makes me remember things that I would otherwise forget to make for my family --- and gives me totally new ideas!! -- Even if I'm less than "committed" all of the time (I tend to get lost in life and forget the planning and prep part of the deal -- until my budget reminds me!!)
