Menu Planinng Monday

I've been trying hard to save money all around for when/if we move into the new place... I've found a really great key is leftovers.
Here is what's on the menu at our house this week:
Monday: 3 Bean Chili (non vegatarian)
Tuesday: leftovers
Wednesday: Grilled Chicken Wraps & Southwestern Vegetable Soup
Thursday: Spicy Chicken Marinara w/ Penne & Salad
Friday: leftovers
Saturday: Dinner w/ Heather & Ian
Sunday: ?
I find it so much easier to menu plan. Not only for saving money but it's so much easier for us working girls! It's very, VERY hard to work all day long and then come home and cook good meals. But I have it mastered for sure..
What's on your menu for this week?

sounds like a great menu... stretching meals to leftovers is great on so many levels!

I am all about cleaning out the freezer this week - random stuff I had bought ages ago and never cooked - so we will be having random combinations of tater tots, frozen waffles, and some variety of froaen veggie. lol

i'm all about leftovers as of late. this week, we are having potato soup, chicken pot pie (i could eat this EVERY SINGLE DAY) and grilled pork chops.

i always love planning out meals beforehand, it helps keep everything organized and, frankly, i LOVE making lists.

I was thinking of making chili for tomorrow night. Yum yum. Menu planning is easier and takes the stress out of "what are we having tonight???"

Oh yummy! Love this.

I never plan out the meals
for the week. Mostly because I
live at home and the parents
provide me with it. I'm lame like
that.

I haven't ever meal planned for an entire week, but I really think that I should! Your plan sounds SO good, too!
