Menu Plan Monday

September is birthday month around here. My second son turns 9 this week and requested steak. So in order to get that in the menu I tried to be extra thrifty with our other meals. I had lots of chicken meat leftover from a roasted chicken last week that I used to make White Chicken Chili. I'll be adding that meat to our menu in the form of a stir fry and then boiling down the carcass for the last of the meat and broth for delicious homemade chicken noodle soup.


Toast with Plum Butter and tea
Oatmeal with almonds, brown sugar, and apples
French Toast
Yogurt Parfaits
Crumb Topped Banana Muffins
Leftover muffins
Scrambled eggs, bacon and toast


Broccoli Pasta, fresh veggie tray
Stir fry chicken and veggies over rice
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup and buttery bread machine rolls
Chicken Rice and Spices Bake, green peas

Leftover Night
Steak, Mashed Potatoes, green beans and birthday cake
Spicy Bean and Rice soup, Peasant Bread
Check back tomorrow to see how our $60 budget stretched and for more menu plan ideas go HERE.

Just discovered your blog from the menu plan monday links. From what I have seen so far I am going to be visiting regularly. My goal for this year is to cut our grocery budget WAY down. So far, I'm not doing great but with a new baby that arrived in May I kinda got side-tracked.

Great menu plan and great blog! I'm big on meal stretching too, nothing goes to waste in my house!

The Broccoli pasta sounds really yummy. I copied down the recipe and will probably be making it soon!

Great sounding menu. Thanks for sharing it. I hope you will soon join me for Crock Pot Wednesday. Not only is it free, it's just a fun thing to do. I will look forward to your post on with Mister Linky.

Thanks for the link to the banana muffin recipe. I bought 80 lbs of bananas last week, sliced them up and froze them. I'm excited to use them in this new recipe.
