Another week of menu plans! I like making my menu plans based on what I have on hand and what’s on sale. It keeps my grocery budget in check. This week I ran into a great sale at Aldi on ground beef (93% 7% fat!!!!) and pork cutlets. Although they are not on my menu plan this week, they will be making an appearance in the next few weeks.
You may wonder why I make a 4 night menu…because I like the structure of knowing what I am going to be cooking but I also like the flexibility to add other menu items. Plus, I like to leave some room for leftovers. Most of our leftovers do get packed into my husband and daughter’s lunch boxes but sometimes I make so much food that I have some extra for a night’s meal.
So here is the plan!
Day 1: Fried Chicken Cutlets & Zucchini
Day 2: Grilled Fajita Pizza
Day 3: Grilled Pork Chops with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Salad
Day 4: Citrus Basil Salmon with Salad & Rice Pilaf
