Menu Plan Monday

For the past two months, I’ve been taking part in Menu Plan Monday. I can honestly say it has changed my life. Not only have I eliminated the “oh-my-goodness-what-am-I-going-to-make-for-dinner?” dilemma that I used to experience mid-day, but it has also provided some relief to my wallet. I try to plan my weekly menu based on ingredients already in my fridge and pantry. If it is a recipe that requires meat, I make sure I can bring it home from work.  I no longer have to make last minute runs to the supermarket, which usually resulted in impulse purchases and overspending. Thanks to Organizing Junkie for a great idea!

Here is this week’s menu:

Monday: Barbecued Spare Ribs, Macaroni and Cheese, and Baked Beans
Tuesday: Pierogies with Sauteed Onions and Spicy Sausage
Wednesday: Skirt Steak Tacos, Black Beans, and a Side Salad
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Baked Falafel with Molly’s Mouthwatering Tzatziki Cucumber Sauce
Saturday: Spaghetti with Asparagus, Smoked Mozzarella, and Prosciutto
Sunday: Leftovers

What’s on your menu this week?
