Menu Plan Monday - Jan. 19


Well, after cooking brownies for 2 hours in my oven and just about losing my "cool", I'm not sure if this menu will work out the best. I think I can do all but the pizzas pretty well in the microwave if I have to. I know, I know. I keep saying we'll get the oven fixed but we don't. I'm not frugal - I'm ultra-frugal and I don't like to spend money unless I absolutely must. Anyway, here's what I've come up with for the week. A note about Sundays: We always have spaghetti and garlic bread for lunch. For suppers, it's an on your own type of thing because it's a day of rest. Why should Mom have to work all of the time with no day off? You get the picture.

Monday

Broiled Pork Chops
Mashed Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole (the french fried onion kind)

Cheesy Turkey and Rice Casserole

Everything looks yum! I am trying to learn to be ultra frugal! This week I only spent $100 on my week groceries and I was very proud of myself!

Sunday's dinner sounds very good. I like Saturday's too, but Thursday would be more like something we would have.
