Menu Plan Monday

This week is a "pantry/freezer week" at our house. I'm spending $8 at the grocery store tomorrow - solely on sale items that are available for less than $1 and are outright steals. Other than that, I'm making do with what I have. So, here is the plan:

Monday: Spaghetti (noodles from the pantry, sauce from the freezer)
Tuesday: Tacos (taco meat and shredded cheese from the freezer, perishables already in the fridge)
Wednesday: Chicken and Spinach Pasta Bake (I have everything but the mozzarella, and I think I'll just substitute for that ingredient)
Thursday: leftovers!
Friday: Chicken patties (freezer!) and baked apples stuffed with raisins

Wednesday's meal is because it just looks SO GOOD and because I have a lot of spinach in the fridge that ought to be used. Other than that...it is nice to go back to cheap and easy basics every now and then. Besides, I'm using the grocery budget for other things this week. :)

For more interesting menus (since mine, well, isn't) spend some time clicking through the participants at Laura's site.
