Menu Plan Monday: 03/11/2013

This week Joe and I have a lot to do to get ready for the tool show this weekend.  So we'll be gone two whole days this week working at Joe's grandfather's house, and the rest of the meals, I tried to keep super simple.  The weather has started to warm up here in Westminster, but there is still a little chill in the air, so I'm getting in one more week of cozy crock-pot comfort foods while I can :-)  Here's what's on the menu this week...

Breakfasts: Cereal, Waffles, Bagels

Lunches: Leftovers, or Sandwiches with Chips

Sunday - Sandwiches
Monday - Crock-pot Lasagne, Garlic Bread, and Green Beans
Tuesday - Crock-pot Pork Roast with Baked Potatoes, and a Vegetable
Wednesday - Away at Joe's Grandfather's house
Thursday - Away at Joe's Grandfather's house
Friday - Nachos (with this meat)
Saturday - Homemade Pizza, and Veggies with Dip

Extras: Butterscotch Pudding

Weekly Spending Report: 03/03-09/2013

This week was the first full week of spending for March, and I think I did pretty good.  I spent close to half our budget for March, but I finally feel stocked back up again.  The freezers actually have enough things in them to make meals, which is nice.  I think my spending should be minimal the rest of the month, or at least I'm going to try and curb it.
