Menu Plan Week of 4/20

Last week went "roughly" according to plan. We changed a couple of things. Friday I worked really late and I had a coupon from BzzAgent for the Taco Bell Fiesta Family Meal ( I will blog about that later), so I had hubby pick that up when I left the office so we could have dinner when I got home. Saturday was the school carnival and the boys had pretzels at school, and cotton candy, so by the time we got home they weren't even hungry. Not a nutrititious meal, to be sure, but they don't have nights like that very often.

This week we're using some freezer food and some easy meals, as I will have another busy week at work and will need food that I can throw together quickly. I figured the Italian beef dinner into a meal plan 2 weeks ago because I didn't expect the amount of leftovers we had. So that means this week clocks in right around $22. I'll take it.
