Menu Plan Monday

My husband got off a little early on Friday, so he met G and I at the grocery store. It was really fun to do our shopping with Daddy and G loved him pushing her around. I loved checking out with all of our great stuff under budget :-) Two weeks in a row I have gotten a ridiculous amount of stuff but saved a lot of money. The bagger even asked if we had a large family at home...I just replied I like to stock up on staples when they are on sale :-) I saved nearly 50% and we've been eating great!

We're still loving our grill, so there's not much going on in the oven lately. I'm perfectly fine by that...and it makes clean up a lot nicer too!
Before you check out our dinners, please feel free to read my recent post about several Giada recipes I've made lately. I give you my brief opinion on them and include some photos. I link to all of the recipes in that blog.

  • Monday: Grilled chicken, baked beans, grilled corn (I add onions and peppers inside the foil), and grilled zucchini (I prefer to cut into circles so grilling takes less time, the foil keeps them super moist)
  • Tuesday: Grilled burgers, potato salad (may try to branch away for my traditional method and try this recipe or this one), and sauteed sugar peas from the Farmers Market (soooo good)
  • Wednesday: leftovers
  • Thursday: leftovers (depending on how much we have) or pizza
  • Friday: Salmon Burgers, curly fries, steamed veggies 
  • Saturday: Spaghetti & meat sauce, salad, garlic bread
  • Sunday: Mother's Day :-) I've requested grilled steaks

  1. I love shopping as a family too! Isn't it strange - if I had been told as a 15 year old that I would someday love grocery shopping with my husband and child, I would have laughed!

  2. Thanks for the potato salad recipe
