A March Menu Plan

Last week I struck gold before I went out grocery shopping.  I was trying to put together a meal plan for about a week or so, when a flyer came in the paper for one of the smaller grocery stores near us.  I regularly buy our meat there, as the quality has consistently been [...]

The Birth Week Menu Plan

It’s a birthday week here at the Tummy Treasure household!  My little man is turning eight and we’re all excited about that.  He chose the birthday dinner on Friday, and I also wanted to allocate as much of the grocery budget as possible to Friday- to allow for cake, ice cream, a few sodas [...]

Menu Plan Monday

I was thinking yesterday about why I haven’t been able to really stick to my $82 a week budget- and I am starting to think that when all is said and done, and I reconcile the totals at the end of the month, it will all work out beautifully.  The thing is, this weekend [...]

This Week’s Menu Plan

There are quite a bit of thoughts that go through my head when it comes to meal planning every week.  The very first thing I need to do is look at the calendar for the week and see what activities we have.  The dance schedule really never changes, but other things come and go, [...]

The Menu Plan

As I mentioned before, I really struggled with getting back into the menu plan groove this week.  I have a few days every week that get a little tricky.  We have one day that the kids eat at the dance school, so the evening meal must be portable.  We’re not sandwich fans, so it [...]

A Grocery Challenge For The New Year

I’ve been thinking about doing this for years.    Pretty much ever since I started blogging, I’ve wanted to really focus and do a month long grocery challenge.   I’d been thinking about doing it again, and this time I was getting closer to actually doing it.  I was going back and forth until this last [...]

Meal Kits For Camping

It feels like 104ºF outside right now.  It’s been hot all week, and as you can imagine, there isn’t much cooking going on.  We’ve been existing on salad and melon all week.  Fortunately, one of the local grocery stores is having a huge sale on melons, so Sunday I went and picked up a [...]

Menu Planning Monday: Farewell 2009

Is anyone else thinking on their New Year’s resolutions?  I know I am, and one of the things that I’m thinking of is that I need to work harder at coming up with some new dinner ideas.   Well, new meal ideas for that matter.  Breakfast, lunch, dinner, they are all in a rut, and [...]

Menu Planning Monday: Pantry Edition

So this week’s theme is “what can I cook with what I have on hand.”  Of course, that theme happens a lot around here, but this week it’s particularly fitting because I want to save the grocery money for Thanksgiving deliciousness.  I can’t believe it’s less than two weeks away- I have a [...]

Menu Planning Monday

Here’s how the week looks so far.  I can’t remember the last time I actually stuck to a menu plan for the week, so we’ll see how we do. These are just the dinners this week.

Sunday: Homemade pizza

Monday: Black Bean and Pumpkin Chili

Tuesday: Beef and Broccoli Lo Mein, Pot Stickers

Wednesday: [...]

Menu Planning Monday

The last few weeks have been extremely busy!  Wow! It seems that we have just not stopped with all the going, and meals have pretty much been whatever I can scrounge up at the last minute.  Not exciting at all.

I wasn’t going to menu plan this week either, but then I was looking [...]

Menu Plan Monday

You may have noticed a few changes to the sidebar over there as of late.  I’ve been shrinking the blogs that I’m concentrating on right now.  With my time seriously crunched, I still want to continue blogging, but I want to do it justice.  So for now, my Savvy Bookworm and my A Piece [...]
