Here is our menu for the week! I’m trying several new recipes!

Veggie Soup & corn bread (leftovers from home group!)

Chicken Nachos, Black Beans

Baked Penne w/ Spinach and Sausage (from the freezer), Salad

Apple Walnut Pancakes (found a recipe and I’m going to see how it works with my favorite pancake recipe), scrambled eggs, fruit

Hamburger Steak & Gravy, Brown Rice, Cabbage and Tomato Saute

I didn’t get a chance to make the homemade Olive Garden dressing recipe! This week I will and I’ll let you know how it turns out! I had ranch dressing to use up last week! We’re having dinner with my family this week, but I went ahead and planned 5 meals because most of these meals don’t make leftovers like a big pot of soup or casserole.

The Cabbage and Tomato side is a new recipe I’m trying from one of my favorite food magazines, Everyday Food. I’m looking for ways to get more cruciferous vegetables in our diet! And cabbage is an inexpensive way! I’ll try and review each of the new recipes as I can!

I’ve totally been slacking on my Saturday $ense posts, but I will get back to them this Saturday. I’ve stayed pretty much on budget, with the exception of last week. I’ll get back to it this Saturday though!
