Menu Plan Monday

Go visit Orgjunkie for oodles of menu plans from bloggers this week.


Cincy Chili (with all 5 ways available)
(I use the GoldStar spice packet to make mine; to make from scratch, use this recipe)


Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Egg Noodles and Broccoli


Shredded Beef Enchiladas
(I use leftover beef from the pot roast; substitute green enchilada sauce for the red and monterey jack cheese for the cheddar -- oh, YUM!)


Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops (or Steaks - on sale at Kroger B1G1Free this week!) + Sweet Potato Oven Chips


Pigs in Homemade Blankets with Mac-n-Cheese
(My kids will be thrilled!)


Chicken Tortilla Soup with tons of garnishes


Free Day/Leftovers


I've posted the grocery list needed for this menu plan as a GoogleDoc; find it here. You should be able to print it right from your browser.

If you see that I missed any ingredients, please drop a comment or email me; I'll revise the document as soon as possible.

Thanks for reading and subscribing to The New Frugal Mom!

Anon: Thanks so much for reading and for reminding me I still have some "housekeeping" issues to take care of on this blog template.

I'll update the Email Subscription button for you (and anyone else out there) with my correct feed info.

Thanks for commenting!

I love your tips! I am a Krogerer too. They made me a fan for life with the personalized coupons I get in the mail.

That pot roast recipe sounds amazing - especially paired with Kroger's BOGO sale on boneless chuck roast this week. Some for now, some for later!

Suz: That potroast is GOOD! My kids absolutely love the gravy.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

That's awesome that you provide a grocery list. I should figure out how to do that.

Have a happy day!

OrgJunkie {Laura}: Thanks so much for commenting! It's not too hard to add docs if you use Google Docs. I highly recommend it!

I'll be linking up my menu tomorrow! Love your site -- very pretty and...organized!

I think it's really fantastic that you provide a grocery list.
I'm subscribing!!

Wholegrain: Thanks! And please let me know if I missed an item on the grocery list for the recipes; I'm human and MORE than capable of making a mistake!


Wholegrain said...

You've really inspired me to not only post my menu plans somewhere but also post the corresponding shopping list.
It's such a blessing for someone going thru a hard time to have such precious tools made available.

Wholegrain: I'm glad my site's been of help to you! That a big part of the reason why I blog here.

Take care!
