Menu Plan Week of October 18th-24th

by GettingFreedom on October 19, 2009

Last week was our last week of soccer until the spring season. Aaaahhhh. I’ve longed for some nights at home, in my pajamas!! Our weather has already cooled off immensely, and it is hard for me to realize that it is almost November. Christmas is going to sneak up on us.

We had another whirlwind of a week last week, and only the first half of last week’s meals went as planned. Thursday we ate a meal from the freezer because I somehow last my hamburger. Friday night we had a church function that I forgot all about until the last minute. Then on Saturday, we ended up eating dinner at a friends.


  • Breakfast:Bacon/Egg/Cheese Tator Tot Casserole.~Recipe to come later.
  • Dinner: Big lunch, so we snacked for dinner.


  • Breakfast: Oatmeal with Apple Butter.
  • Dinner: Spaghetti.($2.75) Green Beans.(from garden) Tri-Color Bread Braid.($1)($3.75)(8 servings=.47/ea)

  • Breakfast: Steel Cut Oats w/bananas
  • Dinner: Chicken and Dumplings ($2-ish) Steamed Broccoli. ($1) ($3)(5 servings=.60/ea)


  • Breakfast: Oatmeal w/bananas
  • Dinner: BBQ Pork Steaks(under $1.50) Baked Beans (leftovers in freezer) Frozen Dinner Rolls (these have been in there for ages, I have no clue what they coset. $1??)($2.50)(5 servings=.25/ea)

Friday: Pizza/Movie Night


  • Breakfast: Breakfast Casserole
  • Dinner: Giggin’! Fish Fry on the river. :)


  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Apple Pie

Total Cost of Dinners: $16.25 Average Price Per Serving: .50/ea

The last 3 weeks have been lower than any other week that I can remember. This week, being the lowest by $1.90. One thing to note, is there is 6 full meals–2 of which have no cost. Tuesday’s dinner I explained in last week’s menu plan, and for Saturday’s meal (gigging)–the fish are free, and the sides (potatoes, “whop biscuits”, and whatever else) are usually provided by my Mom-In-Law. In the event I do provide some sides, the cost is still minimal.

Taking advantage of wild game and fish, as well as growing and producing your veggies, is a GREAT way to lower your grocery budget.
