Next Week's Menu

In an effort to cut down my grocery costs and make each day run a little smoother, I plan a weekly dinner menu. No longer am I going to the grocery store on a daily basis for this and that, spending far more money than I need to, while not even being aware of what is actually in my pantry. I go grocery shopping weekly, on the weekends, and during the week I follow my menu. Not only has it been good for the pocketbook, it makes my life easier and saves me time. I also shop with the sales and with coupons, but that's another topic altogether.

Here's what James and I will be enjoying for dinner this week:

Sunday: Sourdough pancakes with blackberry sauce and sausage patties
Monday: Center cut pork chops with mango salsa, sauteed kale and steamed cauliflower
Tuesday: Meatball subs, salad and fruit (Crock pot)
Wednesday: Mojo Pork with black beans and yellow rice (Crock pot)
Thursday: Roasted pork tenderloin with roasted veggies
Friday: Chicken and Chile quesadillas with salad and fruit
Saturday: Go out, or stay in--our choice.

I post the menu on the refrigerator so James and I can prepare our tastebuds for dinner each night. He likes the disclaimer that I put at the bottom each week-- it says:

"All menu items are subject to change.
Verbal requests are gladly accepted."
