This is what we are going to have on the menu using the groceries I purchased this week and the stockpile in my pantry and freezer from previous weeks and months of $60 shopping lists. Remember that one of my New Year's goals is to serve a meatless meal once a week, and we have three theme nights per week: Taco Tuesday, Pizza Friday, and Breakfast for dinner on Sundays.

Wednesday- Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Tater Tots, Fruit Bowl (sounds like cafeteria food but it was the kids' request)
Thursday- Brown Sugar Salmon, Baked Potatoes, steamed green beans, Caesar Salad and garlic breadsticks
Friday-Pizza night! Veggie Pizza and Baked Apple Pizza
Saturday- Oven baked mac and cheese with Frosted Flake topping, grilled sausages and steamed broccoli.
Sunday-Breakfast for dinner! French Toast
Monday-Pork Roast, Baked Potatoes, Spinach Salad with grapefruit, avocado, almond slivers and poppyseed dressing
Tuesday-Taco Night! Carnitas, rice and beans
