Budget Friendly Menu Planning

This is our first full week of menu planning during the No Spend Challenge, and just to make things more interesting, we have a leak in our well. Nothing like trying to do your normal day to day activities with limited or no water. Yesterday I cooked three of our meals, so I'm hoping we can stick to the menu and that everything is fixed by mid week.

Monday: Beef Stroganoff and mashed potatoes
Tuesday: Sweet and sour chicken over rice, buttered peas and carrots
Wednesday: Carribean chicken stirfry over rice, lettuce salad
Thursday: Pumpkin black bean soup over rice, corn bread
Friday: Pulled pork with mashed potatoes and rolls
Saturday: Leftover buffet
Sunday: BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans and lettuce salad

Great menu! I have my menu up too for this week (it was posted Sunday at The Motivation Station). Check things out over there, lots of challenges! I would love to have you do a guest post for us when you have the time :-)

Oh and sorry about the well!

Menu looks great...especially the soup! I love all things pumpkin - can't wait to give this recipe a try!

Oooo pumpkin black bean soup sounds really interesting. I've never heard of anything like that.

Good luck with that leak. Oh - and my carrot cranberry muffin recipe is up!
