This week I’m focusing on quick and easy meals that don’t take a long time to prepare. I’m also trying to eat up food we have in the house, so I can save on our grocery bill. It’s the end of the month, can you tell? The budget is getting tight, especially after my husband and I took a much needed but very spontaneous (read: not in the budget) date night last Saturday night.
Menu Plan Monday
MONDAY: Spaghetti (gluten-free noodles, of course) with meat sauce and a side salad. I’ll make this tomato sauce and add ground beef to it.
I now use Bionaturae Tomatoes exclusively because it’s important to me that my tomatoes do not come in cans due to BPA concerns. I keep my pantry stocked with these tomatoes and use them any time a recipe calls for tomatoes or tomato sauce. Bionaturae also makes tomato paste in small glass jars.
TUESDAY: Leftovers (I won’t be home for dinner, so it has to be something easy-peasy.)
WEDNESDAY: Chicken Stir-Fry over rice. Everyone loves it, it goes together quickly, and I have chicken in the freezer.
THURSDAY: Tilapia Parmesan with rice and oven roasted broccoli
FRIDAY: Shepherd’s Pie with a green veggie
