Menu Plan Monday: Week of October 31st
Wow! October really flew by! I can't believe that it's November 1st and we're heading into Holiday Season! And of course with holidays come disrupted plans. You'll see some repeats from last week in this week's meal plan because things got a bit derailed towards the end of last week.
Thursday was Trick-or-Treat night in our community and it fell right during dinnertime so we ended up getting a pizza around 8pm. Friday was the end of a long week and a couple busy days and this momma didn't feel much like cooking so we ended up getting take out again. And Saturday Mark decided we should take advantage of a Buy-1-Get-1-Free entree coupon good for Halloween weekend that we had for a restaurant that we like. That plan kind of failed because we didn't feel like waiting an hour to eat dinner and I'm sure Jack wouldn't have appreciated it very much either. We still ended up eating at a restaurant Saturday night, but not the one we had originally planned to.
Which brings us to this week where I'm going to try to get to the meals that we missed last week and keep the overall grocery budget down to make up for the unplanned food expenses of last week.
Sunday: Asian Chicken Wraps with Broccoli
Monday: Apple-Cheddar Stuffed Chicken with Butternut Squash
Tuesday: Shepherd's Pie
Thursday: Baked Potato Soup (CrockPot)
Friday: Homemade Pizza
