Menu Plan Monday $7 Dinner Challenge

We are into week 3 of my menu plan challenge. 

I am making meals for 5 for $7.00 or less each night. 

How am I doing?  Check out Week 2 and Week 1.

You can also check out all the other menus over at I'm An Organizing Junkie.


This week on our families menu:


String Cheese Pasta
Green Salad

Total Cost:  $7.14


Spicy Cheesy Chicken & Vegetables over Rice*

Scrambled Eggs

Beef & Broccoli Stir fry

Total Cost: $7.91

Garlic Bread

Total Cost: $6.57

Again, not too bad.  $38.72 for 5 for 6 nights.  I am getting the hang of this and my pocket book is liking this too!

What is on your menu this week?

*I didn't include the cost of rice since I had almost half of box left over from last week.

**I didn't include the cost of bread since this is a staple we always have on hand.

Today is filled with possibilities. WW
