Menu Planning Monday 15
I have decided to try something a little bit different this week! It is grocery shopping week here, and as we only go fortnightly; I have decided this week that I am going to seriously stock up (hopefully still within our budget though), and buy enough for the month... I will be trying to menu plan for the whole month also, and thus the next pay we can save some of the grocery budget instead.
I am NOT expecting to save the entire grocery budget next time, BUT I figure if I can save half the budget - this will go a long way towards our goal of moving, and buying our own place (as long as I can keep it up)! It is also the way I am thinking we can shop once we move - big shop once a month out of town, then smaller shops each week/fortnight for fresh produce etc locally.
I have not written a menu up for this week, but I will come back and share once I have had the chance to put together at least a few days; if not the whole month. However, I have been a lot better at noting what we have been eating over this past week or so, and will quickly jot them down here for you:
Wednesday 10th September = Quinoa Fritters
Thursday 11th September = Mini Meatloaves
Friday 12th September = Pizza and Homemade Burgers
Saturday 13th September = Zesty Lemon and Soy Chicken
Sunday 14th September = Panfried Fish, Salad & Hot Chips
Monday 15th September = Honey, Ginger and Soy Chicken
Nothing is decided on beforehand, so I cannot give you any indications of what we'll even be having tomorrow night! But I will get onto it this time, it has just been a busy few days here (and it's only going to get worse over the coming days/weeks, so I just need to get my butt into gear and get sorted)!
I am hoping to be able to try a few new recipes in the Ultimate Bundle of E-Books I bought last week; so exciting! I have been banned from buying any more recipes books for a while now, although have a few more on my list I'd like to purchase yet! Might just have to start saving my pocket money *grin*!!!!
Hope this finds you happy and healthy, and ready for the new week!
