Menu Plan Monday

So, I am a little tired of grilled cheese and ramen and eggs and ...... well, I wanted to "cook" some. This month we have a week where we will not need any meals so I thought I would try something different.

I think I have talked about these before .... Kraft Foods has a "line" of recipes that are called "1 Bag, 5 Dinners." Chris and I have done a couple in the past but I thought I would try one again this week and see how much more my grocery bill was. The only problem with these is that I don't always have the basics in the pantry that they think I should have. But the good thing is that when you buy some ingredients you will have some left over and to do that recipe again, there will not be nearly as much to buy.

We spent $79 in all this week. I was actually surprised. I thought it would be more. ((We are trying 4 new recipes this week - wish us luck!))

Here is the menu:

Monday - Tuna Cakes, Mac-n-Cheese
Tuesday - Pizza, Chips (for Chris and the kids) I will be meeting The Pioneer Woman at Davis Kidd!
Wednesday - Velveeta Egg & Veggie Bake, Green Beans
Thursday - Pasta Primavera Alfredo
Friday - Ravioli Bake, Garlic Bread
Saturday - Christmas Party!
Sunday - Leftovers and Sandwiches
