Monday Menu Plan: 11/28-12/4

This week we’re on a tight budget. I spend $300 every four weeks on groceries for my family of four, which averages out to about $75 a week. But it’s the last week of the month and I only have about $35 left in our grocery budget, as we were grocery-heavy in the first half of the month . I’ve planned most of the week’s meals around what we already have on hand, so after shopping our pantry I should only have to buy milk, fresh veggies and fruit. In this case $35 is plenty, as I’m lucky to have a well stocked pantry and fridge =)

Breakfasts: baked oatmeal, fresh fruit, homemade yogurt and granola, scrambled eggs, waffles

Lunches: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, fresh fruit and veggies, leftovers

Snacks: fresh fruit and veggies, popcorn, veggie straws, brownies


  • bacon and cheddar crustless quiche
  • broccoli
  • curried chickpeas (this is a carryover from last week)
  • basmati rice
  • sauteed green beans
  • pasta with butter and parmesan
  • wilted kale
  • roasted chicken thighs
  • three bean salad
  • ham and cheese wraps (we’re going to a tree lighting so we need something quick, easy and potentially portable!)
  • carrot sticks and apple slices
  • chili
  • cornbread
  • dinner at my dad’s!
