Menu Monday

One thing I do to try and save money is planning a menu for the week. I shop at Aldi's once a week....usually. If you haven't tried Aldi's, YOU MUST! Make sure you take your own bags and a quarter to "rent" your shopping cart. The quarter will be returned when you return the cart. One of my goals for 2008 is to not use the plastic bags...i.e. Wal-Mart bags....instead I take my own bags to the store. Wal-Mart does sell recycled cloth bags for $1.00 and I do use those. I like how they have the flat bottom on them. I also have 3 insulated bags. Aldi's is about 30 minutes from home and I need to keep the cold stuff cold.

So, here is my weekly menu:

Monday - Pasta Primivera (using chicken I grilled yesterday), hot rolls and salad

Tuesday - Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Sausage, tortillas (fresh from the farmer's market)

Wednesday - Baked Ravioli, salad, garlic bread

Thursday - Grilled Hamburgers, baked fries, baked beans

Friday - Going to a party - taking lemon bars, chip dip

Saturday - Family Reunion - taking deviled eggs, lemon bars, chip dip

Sunday - Turkey, dressing, corn, gravy, potatoes
