Menu Plan: Summer (Sept. 9-15)


     This week I'm mixing some familiar recipes with some new ones. I will be focusing on making a ham the central component by using this one ingredient in three meals. Several of the other meals involve ingredients we already have on hand.  Using one main component three ways and working from a basic pantry are two ways in which we can make real food with a real budget. We have about 15 different meals and 4 snacks planned for this week. The total for groceries this week was only $43! That amount divides out to about $6.14 for three meals for two people each day! Not too shabby, if I may say so myself :) 

-parfaits (yogurt, walnuts, strawberries, granola)
-omelet (eggs,diced bell peppers, diced onions, diced mushrooms), toast, fresh smoothie/juice
-granola cereal with dried berries, banana 
-oatmeal, strawberries, walnuts
-egg sandwich (egg, cheese, canadian bacon, biscuit)  {Tip: make these in advance and keep them in the freezer)

-Ham, green beans, sweet carrots
-Mini turkey burgers with sweet potato fries
-Blackbean tofu burritos, pico de gallo
-Plantation Ham
-Ham primavera

-{breakfast for dinner} Idaho Sunrise (one of my favorite breakfasts!)
-Curried butternut squash soup
-BBQ tofu sandwiches, freezer slaw, baked beans (we didn't get to this one last week)
-Fish with baked potato fries
-Caesar salad (romaine, herbed croutons, Parmesan cheese with homemade caesar dressing)

-fruit (watermelon, apples)
-olives, cheese slices
-veggies (broccoli, carrots)
