Easy Weekly Menu Plan #29

WMP1

I’m stuck in limbo right now between wanting to cut out all of the eating out to save money and eat healthier and the obvious convenience of grabbing take out on a busy night. I’m having some uncomfortable tummy issues lately and I think the take out is the problem. As a compromise we are going to start getting pizza once a week. I can get a veggie pizza for myself and hopefully that will help. Instead of eating out after soccer I’m going to plan a crockpot meal for that night so it’s ready when we get home. Y’all- it costs us around $45 to eat out and that’s just for fast food like Chick-Fil-A. That’s insane! My budget has declared that it must stop. We can get 3 XL pizzas from Papa John’s on Monday’s for $30 thanks to their 50% off Monday special right now. So that’s what we’re going to do. And it gives us leftovers for Tuesday night. We’re going to give it a try for a few weeks and see how it goes. 

Monday: Pizza Night; Side Salad

Tuesday: Leftover Pizza Night; Side Salad

Wednesday: Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole

Thursday: Crockpot Creamy Black Bean Chicken Soup; Breadsticks

Friday: Game Day Crockpot Chili; Cornbread

Saturday: YOYO (You’re On Your Own)

Sunday: Chili Dog Cheese Fries Casserole with Leftover Chili

Here’s hoping my new menu plan works this week. I love that I’m using leftovers from our dinner on Friday to make our dinner on Sunday. It takes a lot to feed this crew and we don’t often have leftovers so getting 2 dinners out of one is a huge plus in this house!
