Menu Monday- With actual food this week!

Last week was horrible for food, I must say.  We practically starved, but we survived without leaving the budget!  Until we bought groceries this week... Apparently skipping a week means you will stretch out the money the next week- we needed everything.

But going over the budget was acceptable for us this week.  We just had to.  I'll find it somewhere else in the budget.  Or cry.  But that's later today.

Monday- Spaghetti with corn and green beans
Tuesday- Leftover spaghetti (I love the stuff)
Wednesday- Taco Salad
Thursday- Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
Friday- Leftover Chicken Pot Pie (I will be at yet another football game)
Saturday breakfast- Pumpkin muffins with eggs, turkey bacon, and mixed fruit
Saturday dinner- Chicken and rice (maybe will try a maple chicken glaze found in the link below)
Sunday breakfast- Pancakes and eggs, with mixed fruit
Sunday dinner- Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

For breakfast all week I have cinnamon bagels and bananas.  Plus my coffee... Oh how I love coffee.  For lunch I'm back to soup and sandwiches- it's becoming a quick favorite.  I also have fruit for lunch- no sugar apple sauce, pears, and peaches.  And for snacks?  I skipped the string cheese this week, but I have low fat wheat thins, applesauce, and apples.

I'm linking up- check out the other menus, along with the Maple Glazed Chicken
