Healthy $10 a Day Menus

 A little later than usual, the menu plan is ready! I am trying, as much as possible, to work around what we already have in the house, adding only a few things to my grocery list. Here is what we will be eating this week.

Oatmeal, bananas, orange juice
Goulash (leftover from Sunday night), peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, milk
Spicy Rice, Bean and Cheese casserole, mangoes:

.50 cents for rice
.50 cents for beans (cook half a bag of black beans)
.50 cents for one can diced tomatoes
$1.25 for cheese
approximately.25 cents for onion and garlic
sour cream, lettuce minimal

Overnight Yeast waffles (these have been on the menu in weeks past but have always gotten booted for something else!)
Burritos with leftover beans and rice
Linguini a la Anne (with ham), Caesar Salad

Fried Eggs, toast, oranges
Vegetable beef soup (using leftover goulash; add beef broth and mixed vegetables), biscuits
Roast Chicken, baked yams, Normandy blend vegetables (a big frozen bag from Sam's with broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, yellow squash)

Peanut butter baked oatmeal
Chicken salad sandwiches (out of leftover chicken), grapes
Chicken and noodles in the crockpot, peas

Homemade Cream of Wheat
Carrot soup, rolls
Pizza, salad

Leftovers for lunch and snacks
Zesty sausage and pepper pasta (Use pork sausage instead of ground beef, brown, add half a green pepper and half a red pepper, saute lightly, add a jar of your favorite pasta sauce and half a 8-oz. brick of cream cheese; stir to combine and serve over penne pasta, or any pasta), salad
