Menu Plan Week of 1/11

The arrival of hubby's smoker caused us to move some things around, so I didn't follow this past week's menu exactly. I'm bumping pizza tonight, as I'd planned bbq chicken pizza, and we've done a lot of bbq between ribs and tomorrow's brisket...so I'm a little burnt out.

A really nice week for the budget. Monday through Sunday's meals come in under $29. Taking advantage of cheap ham and broccoli from Target, .50 bags of spinach from Fareway after coupons, and leftovers from the freezer.

buttered noodles .75

My husband got a smoker a couple of years ago, and he just LOVES it. He spent the better part of last summer smoking meat to freeze for winter. Whenever my son is home from school, we always break out a package of brisket - it froze beautifully!

I like your menu, especially with the price tag of everything. I will have to try the chicken tender recipe. My kids love "nuggets."
