This Week’s Menu & Household Budget

It’s been a while since I did a menu post. Our freezer is full of deer and vegetables from this years garden. We also have plenty of canned items from the garden as well.

This weeks breakfast choices are eggs, toast, cereal, or oatmeal.

This weeks lunch choices will be leftovers, sandwiches(grilled cheese or peanut butter), baked sweet potatoes,and fruit(apples or bananas).

Snacks will be popcorn and baked yummies. 🙂


Fri.(today)- Sausage, Biscuits, & Gravy

Sat.- Chili Beans & Crackers

Sun.-Steak, Baked Potatoes, & Green Beans

Mon.- Venison Stew & Crackers

Tues.-Roast, Potatoes, Carrots, Onions, & Green Peppers

Wed.- Philly Cheesesteak & Corn-on-the-Cob

Thurs.-Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Baked Beans, Cranberry Sauce, Relish Tray, Pumpkin Pies

$97.64 was spent at Dollar General Market & $25 was put into savings. I have $22.33 left that will go into savings also.

    • It was 10.67 and was a little over 14 lbs. They are on sale for .75 a pound. We got the same turkey last year, a Jenny O, or something like that. They come with a large bag of gravy mix that you mix with two cups of water. It makes a ton of gravy.

  1. I love reading how people save money and how they do their menus. I like planning at least a weeks menus just so that I know what I am doing each night! Thanks for sharing. Nancy
