Grocery List - Menu Planning





Mondays are normally my grocery shopping day. The Monday following payday (like this one) is the heaviest one. The cost of groceries have gone up so much that I've had to cut down to frugal yet yummy recipes. So I've been doing a lot of searching online and different places to fine low ingredient, cheap ingredient recipes. We are a family of four and we live on one income so we do live by our budget. If I spent more money on groceries than we allot for that means no fun extra's. So I try to keep within the grocery budget.

So I'm meal planning this morning and after the baby finishes her nap we'll go grocery shopping before Big Sister get's home. So I thought I would share my menu plan with you this week. You may already know I keep a Recipe Blog if any of these are well liked by the family they will wind up posted on there maybe even with a decent enough picture, I always like to see what things look like before I make them but my camera is a cheap one and I'm no photographer.

So here are the recipes I have on my grocery list to make this week!

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf - This is one of the Recipe Challenges for this week.

Crockpot Tuna Casserole

Garlic Pizza With White Sauce - I'll be trying this Pizza Crust Recipe

Chicken & Rice Casserole - another Recipe Challenge recipe for this week

Beef & Rice Casserole

Chicken & Linguine In Creamy Tomato Sauce - Made this one once before

Dawn's Layered Chicken Casserole - Made a million times for years.

Only two recipes I've made before, Something has to really be excellent for us to eat it more than once a year because I try a bunch of new recipes every week.. Keeps it from getting boring for sure :)

Guess that's it for now :)
