Menu Plan Monday(2/26/07)

This week I have been inspired by Heather over at 10,000 things to be happy about. She has been adding how much each of her meals cost and then breaking it down to how much per person. So this week I thought i would give it a try. So here we go our menu plan for this week.

Sunday: Fish and Mac n cheese. Cost $9.00 cost per person $1.50

Monday: Marvelous Mini Meatloaves mashed potato and corn. Cost $9.13 Cost per person $1.52 with a penny left over guess that would be a tip.

Tuesday: Swiss steak(in the crock pot) and baked potato. Cost $10.67 Cost per person $1.77 with a $.05 tip

Wednesday: Easy Chicken Pot Pie and apple crisp for dessert. Cost $8.71 Cost per person $1.45 with $.01 tip

Thursday: Stouffers frozen family size Lasagna with garlic bread Cost $11.92 Cost per person $1.52 with $.01 tip

Friday: I'm not sure about Friday yet. I still have not ate the Italian Sausage That has been on my plan for what now 3 weeks. So maybe that but It will just be me and Little Man so we might end up just doing leftover or getting taco bell :)

On Friday Princess softball team is going to be staying in the hotel in a town an hour from here(but it is more like 3 hours from where her softball team is from) and Friday night they are having a pizza party at the hotel. DH is going to take both girls to that while I stay home to get Mr Man to one of his friends birthday party so Mr Man will be eating at the party so I only need dinner for Little man and my self.

Saturday: We will be eating all our meals out that day, Princess is in two tournaments. One for her Basketball team and One for her fastpitch travel tournament softball team. The softball team is putting us up in a hotel but thankfully it is close enough for us to travel back and forth to get her to her basketball tournament in the morning and her get back in time for her softball tournament that night.

Well there you have my meal plan for this week, meals are set and more then likely will not be changing but the day I eat them on might change depending on my mood and my taste buds :)

What a great menu ... and I have meals on my menus, too, that keep getting put on there because I never get around to them.

Tell Princess good luck at her tournaments!

I love how you calculated how much each meal costs. Very clever!

Neat idea to keep track of what each meal costs. I wonder what mine would come out to be? I'll have to give that a try sometime.

Your menu looks delicious! I keep seeing those Mini Meatloaves on lots of blogs--I'm really going to have to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Have a great week!

How cool. The cost feature is extremely helpful to those of us on a budget.

I've thought about calculating the costs, too, but since I usually plan on Saturday or Sunday and shop on Sunday or Monday, I haven't quite figured out how to swing that yet. :)

Looks great, though! Good luck to princess in her tournaments.
Have a great week!

Kelleigh said...

Oh bother, I like fish - but it's always so expensive, lol! It's amazing to compare the cost of a homemade meal to eating out. Your menus look delicious. Happy cooking, Kelleigh

LOVE how you include the cost of your meals! That is very helpful.

Carrie! :o) said...

Great menu! I think the cook should get a tip for every meal! :o)

Anna said...

I hope our meals are that cheap, but I'm thinking they probably aren't. LOL And you even got a $0.01 tip?? NICE. =)

ooooh, my menu this week is using up things from the freezer, because cash flow is a little tight this week, and I don't remember what some of this stuff cost, but I might think about doing this next week.

His Girl said...

Oooh...mini meatloaves sound fun!! I love your blog colors!

Wow, you have a busy week! Sounds like a great menu and how nice that you get to have one-on-one time with your son! God bless.

Heather said...

I don't know how you do it with all the things you have planned! Busy, busy, busy. Meals look great, funny that I didn't plan out the cost this week, I barely planned the menu! Ahhh!

Jill said...

Your menu looks so good. I also love seeing the cost of the menus, that is so helpful!

Wow! That's amazing how you figured all that out! Good job! Where is the mini meatloaf recipe? That makes my mouth water and Husband would love it too. Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I did have a really bloggy weekend, lots to print off for my journal for the grandkids! I hope some day they actually do read it!

JennaG said...

Thank you--You will have to let me know when you try the ritz chicken and if you like it--it sounds so yummy!

Lynanne said...

You should be demanding a 15% tip at least :)
