Monday, February 28

menu monday.

How was everyone's weekend? Did you watch the Oscars? 

We did and I was SO excited that Natalie Portman won Best Actress ... I absolutely adore her! 


Here's what's on our menu board this week: 

Monday: Roasted chicken & vegetables {from my budget cookbook}

Tuesday: Bean Burgers & Sweet Potato Fries

Wednesday: Quesadillas {using leftovers from Monday}

Thursday: Chicken and Spinach Mac & Cheese {I add chicken to it ... SO YUMMY!}


Saturday: Family Birthday Party :) 

Sunday: Pulled Chicken Samis & Homefries

We're still on a serious food budget {got to get to Fashion Week!} in our house ... And I'm surprised with how well it's going! I spent $50 the other day on 2 weeks worth of groceries {I splurged on a few things which is why I spent $20 more than last time!}

But y'all I must say planning ahead and using some budget cooking techniques SERIOUSLY helps! 

Happy Monday Y'all! 

*** Oh my! I almost forgot ... I may have a GIVEAWAY up my sleeve ... Stay tuned! ;) ***

I loved Natalie Portman's acceptance speech too! She is so cute and articulate, I'm glad she won :)

Your menu looks yummy--we made some spinach mac and cheese a few weeks ago and put some chipotle adobo sauce in it for a little spice without the heat--tasty!
