Menu Plan Monday - Quick n Easy

Well, my job search has gone into full gear. I have signed up with my local work force, job force program and I have done pretty good so far. I've submitted like 8 applications. What does this mean? Daddy is staying home. Crazy, isn't it. If you all don't know. Hubby was laid off last December and I have been working, doing contract work. I love it, but recently bills have gotten tighter so I have to look for a salary job. WISH ME LUCK!
So.... this week will be super different as far as our meals. I signed up for the Job Club and I plan on being here 7 hours a day! In the morning, I'm going to make breakfast and then drop off my daughter and mom at work and then head on over here. I am also going to bring my own lunch that way I don't miss out on any seminars or trainings that go on here all day. Dinner might not change much, depending if hubby takes out the meat to defrost and if he washes dishes as well.
Here is the menu plan for the week:
Breakfast: Oatmeal w fruit
Lunch: OTE - Villa Pizza
Dinner: Chili con Ccarne Gorditas
Breakfast: Cereal w/banana
Lunch: Tuna Sammies
Dinner: Oven Roasted Chicken w rice n cheese
Breakfast: EggSammy w/bacon n cheese
Lunch: Pasta Veggie Salad
Dinner: Chicken Stir-Fry
Breakfast: Bacon n Egg taquitos
Lunch: Chicken Alfredo
Dinner: Hamburger Helper (home-made)
Breakfast: Pancakes
Lunch: Grilled Chicken Ranch Wraps
Dinner: OTE - Chinese Restaurant
That's my menu for the week. Now am I going to stick to it? I have no idea. But I'm going to try because you know I hate spending money by going out to eat. I am also going to go to the farmers market on Wednesday to get the fruit n veggies for the week. Can't wait. I think I only have one banana left from last week. oh and the recipe for this will will be the traditional mexican flat corn sandwhich, the Gordita!
For more menu ideas head on over the!


  1. Best of luck hon, it took me a while to get good at shopping on a budget and keeping all those leftovers but I've finally got the hang of it. Your plan for the week looks great. xx

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
