Menu Plan Monday- 1/11/10

Although it has been absent from this blog the past couple weeks, Menu Plan Monday has returned! This week we are on a limited budget since I overspent the first week in January while shopping at the brand new Kroger Marketplace in town. I seriously need to avoid that place at all costs! The food is displayed so beautifully, how could I not spend money? So this week I am sticking to Aldi and the Meijer sales. I might venture into Kroger one time to snag some free toothpaste (after coupon is doubled), but that will be it!

Aww you're making roast chicken! You'll do great :-)

And the new design looks awesome, by the way! Very cheerful!

I'm so happy to have found your menus.
We eat 3 meals a day at home (all 7 of us)
and countless snacks.
Thanks for sharing your idea.
Happy Week.

I'm glad my menu plan is able to help! I'm home all day as well, so planning out ALL of the meals is crucial. It really helps things run smoother this way!
