Menu Plan Monday – 4/5

Wow, it’s Monday and I am actually sitting down to plan out my meals.  We are making progress!

When I was planning this week’s meals, I remembered the question from a reader over on the LRWC facebook page asking if we eat a lot of chicken and rice because it’s cheaper or was this our normal meals.  Honestly, I guess I never really noticed that we ate a lot of chicken and rice dishes but I guess when you look at it, we do.  Is it because it’s cheaper?  Hmm, that is a good question.  Maybe, but I’ve eaten chicken and rice dishes all my life so I never really gave it a lot of thought.

The one thing I can tell you is that we have so many variations of chicken and rice that it never becomes monotonous.  There seems, to us anyway, to be something different all the time.  Plus, if you ever asked my kids what they wanted for dinner that night, 9 times out of 10 it would be a chicken dish.  So, I guess it’s a little of both, cheaper and a normal meal for us.

Here is our plan for the week:

  • Chicken Francese with thin spaghetti
  • Chicken Caesar Salad (using frozen chicken we had prepared last week)
  • Breaded Tilipia, Red Roasted Potatoes, Broccoli
  • Flank Steak on the grill, Sweet Potato Fries, Salad
  • Homemade Pizza
  • Hot Dogs, Beans, Salad
  • Eat out!

    Do you have a go to meal/meat/dish that you prepare a lot?  Do you prepare it because it’s frugal or because your family enjoys it or both?

      We eat a lot of pasta dishes – I think partly b/c it’s easy, partly b/c the kids like it, and partly b/c it’s cheap! 🙂 It is easy to just toss in whatever meat/fish is on sale, with whatever veggies are on sale (or in the freezer) add a little olive oil, or a little milk & a dab of cream cheese or sour cream, voila! Dinner is served! 🙂 (And it makes for great leftovers!)
