Meal Plan: First Week of 2009

Well here is my menu plan. I guess late is better than never this week. I am still struggling with how to cook healthy, simple, frugal meals for my family. I have been researching buying local produce, dairy and meats lately. I will write another post on that, but this is one of my hot topics for the moment. It is not as easy as you would think to know exactly where your food comes from. If you are buying locally please leave me a comment with any tips for me as I try to provide local foods for my family.

Menu Plan

M: Open faced Cheeseburgers on homemade bread, salad, sweet potato fries
T: Chicken cacciatore over brown rice *this is a wonderful almost one pot meal where the veggies are in the main dish so no side dishes
W: Make your own cornmeal crusted pizzas, loaded with veggies
TH: Frozen Meal (this is my third day on at work…I need a little reprieve)
F: Homemade soup, salad and bread
S: Hubby is cooking (I am going out with the girls to celebrate a friend’s birthday)
S: Main Course will be some sort of salad with chicken thrown in for protein
