Menu Plan 8/29 - 9/4

It's time for Menu Plan Monday.
I think I have said it before but making a menu plan is so, so, so helpful for so many different reasons. It has really helped me save money by only having to go to the grocery store once a week. It saves time, and it definitely saves stress. I don't have to worry about what we are eating everyday. I just get it all out of the way in one thinking session, and then I can live in glorious bliss for 6 days until I have to plan again:)

Same old - waffles, bagels, eggs with sausage or bacon, banana bread (recipe at the end of this post) yogurt, fruit

Grilled Cheese
Tuna Sandwiches
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
Macaroni and cheese

Monday - Pasta with Tim's special sauce (we skipped this on Sunday because we got into a car accident on our way home from Jacksonville and didn't get home until almost 10 pm.)
Tuesday - Taco night with all the fixin's, homeade salsa, and Mexican Rice
Wednesday - Chicken tetrizzini (in the freezer from when I made it the last time)& bisquits
Thursday - Tortellini Soup (also from the freezer) with garlic knots
Friday - Pizza night
Saturday - Steak on the grill, twice baked potatoes, and broccoli
Sunday - Pasta again
