Menu Plan Monday - Memorial Week

Happy Memorial Day!! I wonder how many people are BBQ-ing. We didn't BBQ, but we did go visit my grandparents and made a trip to the cemetery to say hi to my daddy. Then we came home and made lunch... Chinese! It was my dads favorite as is my Hubby & Vetty too! And it was a very frugal meal as well. It was a soup. I can't remember the name... but guess what! They are usually like $1.19. I had tried them some time last year because Hubs always likes to try the foods in the "Chinese" section of the grocery store (none of those meal in a bowl). And because it's recommended to be made by boiling the noodles then adding the "base" in your bowl makes it more authentic. Anywho... they were on sale for $.25 a few weeks ago at my local H-E-B! I bought like 6. So for this Memorial Day lunch I only made two. The water I used to boil the noodles in was FREE (at my local watermill promotion). So, $.50 total for a family of 4 = $.12 a person!! So hoping to keep the meals this week this low... I only have $6 left for the week! Remember I was on a really tight budget! Wish me luck!

Monday: Chinese Soup

Tuesday: Fish Sticks with pasta salad (Fish Sticks were FREE!)

Wednesday: Bacon n Egg tacos with cheese (Tortillas were FREE!)

Thursday: Chili n corn bread (corn bread was $.29)

Friday: Leftovers
