dinner menu 1/25- 1/30

So in my attempt to save money I'm trying to plan out our meals for the week. That way I can actually make a grocery list based on what we need instead of just going up and down the isles tossing stuff that I know we use in the buggy. So here's tonight through Friday.

Sunday - Chili
Monday - Hamburgers and french fries
Tuesday - General Tso Chicken (homemade, I have almost perfected the recipe and I'll share mine once I do)
Wednesday - Spaghetti
Thursday - Chicken with BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese and bacon. Bacon green beans, & mac n cheese
Friday - Steak and fries and/or salad

I'm hoping that by planning out our meals I'll be able to keep from having to run to the store all the freaking time. Because trust me, with two kids, that can be quite the pain in the butt. I also started working on my coupon binder tonight, I clipped all the coupons from last weeks paper and got about 1/3 of them put in, hopefully that will make it easier to keep up with them.

I try to this myself...
I'm not really good at getting it cooked on the day I say I will.. but at least I've got a weeks worth of meals... (and I always pick up a couple of "quick meal" things for those unexpected late nights...)

I plan out our week most of the time too, and like Megan, I don't always do it when I say I will, but I always have enough for a weeks worth of dinners (and leftovers for lunches)

Sounds like great meals! Can't wait for you General Tso's recipe.

I know what you mean about the grocery store with two kids!

And, we try to plan out meals, too. We don't always do which days will be what, but we've got a week planned out. I think it helps.

Can't wait for the recipe.
