Menu Plan Monday - Mar 10

So far, so good with Menu Plan Monday. I don't always stick strictly to the menus, but this is really helping me keep up with grocery shopping and cooking regularly. This week I'm trying to use items I already have at home since I have to replenish some pantry items and I'm trying to keep the food budget down.

If you want to see other people's menus for this week or post your own, go to


Breakfast: Porridge (this is what my kids call oatmeal when I soak the oats overnight), milk
Lunch: Tuna Melts, carrot sticks
Dinner: Cheesy Chicken Vermicelli, steamed greens


Breakfast: Oatmeal Muffins (Allyson makes these), fruit
Lunch: PB & J, milk
Dinner: Chili, cornbread, salad

  1. Looks like you have a great week lined up! I'm so impressed that you plan all 3 meals. I have to ask: is squirrel bakes made from squirrel, literally? (Your blog name always makes me smile--my maiden name is Elliott.) Have a great week!


  2. Your menus sound delicious this week!! Holly
