Weekly Menu Plan ~ April 11-17

It has been a little while (too long) since I have made bread, and it was so good to take one afternoon this past week to make up another batch of bread with my Bosch machine. It only takes about 2 1/2 hours from start to finish, including grinding up the grain in my Whisper Mill. With our 20 year-old son coming home for the week, I knew that I needed to take time for bread-making ... he loves this homemade bread!

I've also been taking some time these weeks to learn a little more about using coupons and anything else that I can start implementing to keep the grocery budget down. Prices are going up ... not a fun thing. One of the foodie bloggers that I have come to appreciate is hosting a focus at the beginning of each week, along with eight other bloggers, called "Eat Well / Spend Less". You might want to check out their blogs for helpful ideas ... click here for the posts from last week, and here for the one this week. 

My menu plan for this week, being flexible, but yet wanting to have some recipes selected:

Main Dishes
Cheesy Chicken Subs
Chicken Alfredo Bake
Pizza Loaves
Saucy Pork Chops

BLT Sandwiches
Beef & Bean Burritos
Chicken Wraps

Orange & Feta Salad with Almonds & Balsamic (New)
Pesto & Feta Pasta Salad with Cranberries (New)

Egg Quiche

Banana Cream Dessert

  1. Hey there! Dropping by from Orgjunkie's Menu Plan Monday. Your bread looks amazing! We're trying to bake a loaf of whole wheat bread a week, it's getting easier with practice! Hope you have a great week!
