Menu planning

Well, Ro's car needed repair work. That's twice each for both of our cars in the last few months! Between cars, HVAC repairs, and dying appliances, I've given up on trying to get ahead for now and am just trying to keep our heads above water. Whee! Little by little, we will get back on track, though.

For now, it's all about budgeting and menu-planning. No last minute supermarket runs (which always cost more!) and no take-out (haven't done that in a while, though). Besides, the thought of fast food turns my stomach now. I don't remember the last time I had a fast food burger, which is a good thing!

This week's menu is based around what I have in the freezer and pantry right now and what is on sale at the supermarket. I'm putting it here so I make sure I follow it. Normally, I'd print it out and put it on the fridge for us to follow, but the printer gave up the ghost, too. It'll scan but when I ask it to print, it just laughs at me ;)

Saturday: Amish pot roast (no idea why it's Amish, it has soy sauce and coffee in the recipe!)
Sunday: Chicken, rice, vegetables
Monday: Pasta primavera
Tuesday: Meat loaf, mashed potatoes, vegetables
Wednesday: Beans and rice
Thursday: Leftover pot roast
Friday: No clue yet! Clean out the fridge/freezer leftover time?

What's nice is that all of this makes enough so that I can also bring leftovers for lunch, which saves a lot!
