Healthy $10 a Day Menus

So it's been awhile since I've last posted a menu plan. Please be assured that I am still feeding my family three meals a day (and plenty of snacks for my boys, who seem to graze all day). :) Here is our menu for the week:

  • Old-fashioned oatmeal, cooked with vanilla and cinnamon, and with a bit of butter, brown sugar and milk in each bowl
  • Cranberry orange scones, yogurt and granola with berries
  • Chocolate Malt O' Meal (one of my son's favorite breakfasts)
  • Waffles, strawberries
  • Eggs and toast, oranges
  • Pancakes

  • Tuna salad sandwiches, carrot and celery sticks
  • Southwest Salad (using leftover chicken in lime butter, shredded; add some corn and black beans; crush tortilla chips over romaine lettuce; top with salsa and ranch dressing mixed together)
  • Macaroni and Cheese with my free pasta, carrots and celery sticks
  • Dinner leftovers
  • Grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup
  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, apple slices
  • Chicken tortellini soup, homemade herb rolls (although this may turn into a cold soup depending on how hot it is outside on the day I make it)
  • Chicken in lime butter, orange rice, broccoli
  • Bbq ribs in the crockpot, mixed vegetables, mashed potatoes
  • Leftover ribs turn into pork bbq sandwiches, oven fries, coleslaw
  • Homemade pizza, Caesar salad
  • Taco Lasagna, salad, corn
Now that it seems like summer is finally upon us, don't hesitate to use your crock pot to keep your kitchen from heating up too much! I wrote more about that, and about a good source of crock pot recipes, in this post. Have a great Monday!
