Please visit I’m an Organizing Junkie for more great Meal Plans.

We have lots going on this week, Andrew turns 18 on Monday, Spring Break, and Easter.

Monday ~ Probably Leftover Buffet, as we had the Homemade Chicken Nuggets and Fries for Birthday Dinner on Sunday

Tuesday ~ Homemade Corn Dogs (recipe from Chaos in the Kitchen, originally posted on MomAdvice)

Wednesday ~ Chicken N’ Noodles and mashed potatoes


I try to boil a whole chicken, mostly for the flavor but also the cost. While you are picking the meat off the bone, bring a pot of water to boil, cook the noodles. When the noodles are done, mix them with 2 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup and 1 can of milk. Stir in the chicken. Sometime I put them in the crockpot to keep them warm.

Thursday ~ Tuna Casserole and fruit

Friday ~ Enchiladas, chips and salsa

Saturday ~ Stuffed Baked Potatoes and Chicken Wings (recipes)


Sunday ~ Easter Dinner – Ham, Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Cheesy Potatoe Casserole (recipe) Green Beans, Asparagus, Jello Fluff Salad, Desserts and Dinner Rolls

Here is a re-cap of last weeks meals and what I spent.

Monday ~ Fettucini Alfredo $4.92

Tuesday ~ Breakfast  $3.70

Wednesday ~ April Fool’s Day Dinner – Snakes and Bugs  $6.26

Thursday ~ Chicken  $3.40

Friday ~ Bacon Cheeseburgers and Fries  $6.10

Saturday ~ Chicken Ranch Salad and Crescent Rolls  $4.34

Sunday ~ Homemade Nuggets and Fries, Chocolate Pudding (son’s bday dinner)  $5.97

I always am able to keep the cost down for our dinners, it’s all of the other food that I can’t seem to get the budget down, but I’m working on it.
