Menu Plan & Shopping List January 30

Happy Monday!  I love the beginning of a new week.  It's like a fresh start to get on track with the meal planning, housework, & laundry.  I love how meal planning makes the day so much easier & not stressful.  If you haven't tried it yet, you should!  Most days at our house require quick kid-friendly meals.  Make sure you read all the way to the end of this post for my shopping list for these meals!

Here's what we are eating this week:

Tuesday: Tuna sauce on rice -- I'll get a picture up soon.  This is our cheap go-to meal.  Make a white sauce seasoned with lemon pepper.  Add 2 cans of tuna.  Serve over white rice.  Cheap, quick, and the entire family loves it.

Thursday: Asian Beef & Ramen -- Also one of our favorite quick go-to recipes.  I teach piano a lot in the afternoons so quick meals are a must after teaching up until dinner time.  Recipe & Pictures coming later this week!

Saturday: Homemade Egg McMuffins -- sausage patties, fried egg, cheese on an english muffin.  Kids love it!

Shopping List: (many of these items you may already have in your pantry)
Cream Cheese
Sour Cream

1 Can Black Beans
1 Can Corn
1 Can Rotel Tomatoes

1 Can diced green chilis

I am working on finishing up my menu planning/coupon binder.  I can't wait to show it to you once it's finished.
