Breakfast choices: Cold cereal
Lunches: (leftovers, brown bagged!)
Monday~ Nachos: Our homemade nachos are a family favorite. We use nacho chips (spectacular sale = big stock up), top with refried beans, diced tomatoes, and two kinds of cheeses (cheddar and pepper jack on sale). Add hot sauce for mom & dad! Believe it or not, we have a large stock of “fire sauce” from Taco Bell because when we do drive thru, that’s usually where we go. They put about 100 sauce packets in the bag, so I keep the extras and use them when cooking our Mexican meals!
Tuesday~ Potato soup (potatoes and bacon in a creamy milk sauce). This is adapted from my mom’s/Grammie’s recipe.
Wednesday~ Beef pot roast with potatoes and carrots and rice.
Thursday~ Crockpot beef and broccoli. This comes from a great frugal recipe I got online years ago. Fast, easy, cheap.
Friday~ **Leftover Love** (Mom’s night off from cooking!)
Saturday~ Dad’s barbeque cooking outside – hot dogs and chicken thighs and drumsticks.
Sunday~ Crockpot beef barley lentil soup. Cheap grains – I love ‘em!
