Menu Monday

This is my menu for the last week of July. We've been living by our budget as much as possible for the past 15 days, but have a new one all ready to go for August. I'm excited/invigorated/ slightly nervous about adopting our new budget for a full month, but I'll save all that for another post later this week.

Because we didn't live by a written budget for the first half of the month, I found my grocery budget was GONE before the last week! So, I took stock of what I had in my freezer and *voila*! An entire week of menu without having to buy any ingredients! Seriously. I'll go to the store for milk (we drink a ton) and some romaine lettuce because we eat an insane number of salads, but past that, we're good to go!

I encourage you to take stock of what you have already in the weeks you find your wallet tight, but encourage you even more to have a realistic written budget and menu plan accordingly!

Steaks and French Fries
Tuesday: Italian Sausage and Pesto Linguine
Wednesday: Chicken Foccacia Sandwiches
Thursday: Sweet and Spicy Kielbasa
Friday: PIZZA NIGHT!!!
Saturday: Bacon and Eggs
Sunday: Lima Bean Soup (we didn't have it last week because of overtime shifts)
