Menu Plan Monday

Monday is tomorrow, but I don't know if I'll get a chance to do it then, plus it's on my mind at the moment, here is my menu for the week. Things are squeaky tight this week - My budget until Friday is $15.00. Yep I am going to have to be creative.

So here goes! This includes some notes to myself to remember too.

*I have ground beef in the freezer, taco seasoning and some taco shells and lettuce - I just need to pick up some cheddar cheese at the store.

Biscuits and Gravy
*I found a recipe I FINALLY like for homemade biscuits that I will use and use up more of the frozen ground beef.

Potatoes with Hot Dogs
*Have potatoes just need to pick up some hot dogs at the store, top with some of the cheddar and baked in the oven these are a simple dinner that my kids love. Me not so much, but I'm making due here!

Potato Soup
*I will save some of the potatoes from yesterday and mash them up for some soup. I won't have the bacon for seasoning, but I'll just saute some onion and throw in some celery seasoning and it should be okay. May need to pick up some milk at the store too.

Something special - I haven't decided for this day. I'll update it when I decide what to make~
Yay payday! :o)

Well done on making it with the $15.

This is why I let my husband shop - he's focussed so doesn't get distracted by specials LOL
