Weekly Menu Planning

Just a month or so ago I came across some blogs that had Menu Plan Monday. I started implementing that into my own home management and it has really helped me. It also fun for me and Eric to chat about the up and coming week. Anything that brings in organization and communication with my hubby is good for me! Since we don't get paid until Thursday, and we have little left in our grocery money envelope (we use the envelope system) I am making things out of stuff I already have and mixing it with some food I can buy for around $40.00. So, without further ado, here is my weekly dinner menu:

Monday- Chef Salad
Tuesday- Eric will have left overs at work and I will be eating at my brother and sister-in-law's home since I am watching my nephews.
Wednesday- Chicken Tortilla Soup (It's a crock pot recipe and I save those for Wednesday nights since it's our Bible Study night)
Thursday- Left over soup from the night before.
Friday- The last of the left over soup (that soup seriously gives us 3-4 good meals)
Saturday- We are having a cards night at my brother's home on Saturday and he hasn't decided yet what he wants to eat!

Sounds great!

How does the envelope system work for you? I have been interested in this, so would love to hear more about it.

Have a great Monday!
