Weekly Menu - week of March 9th

Here's my menu plan for this week. We'll see if I actually stick to it this time! ; )

Sunday - flat bread and leftover hummus

Monday - chiles rellenos, refried beans, tortillas, and green salad.

Tuesday - sukiyaki with rice

Wednesday - grilled tempeh, spicy cajun potato wedges, greens with oil & vinegar

Thursday - pizza

Friday or Saturday - Coco Ichibanya curry, salad with Coco's dressing, flat bread

Sounds like a plan! The Coco's curry is some that we bought in Japan and brought home with us when we moved. By the way, just in case any of you guys in Japan read this and feel compelled to pick up some packages of mild pork curry and mail it to us, we would very, very gladly reimburse you for the cost of the curry, shipping & handling, and your time. I'm just saying... You could not possibly send us too many. ; )

This weekend the kids are staying over one night at David and Jaimie's house, but I'm not sure which day yet, hence the "Friday or Saturday" up there. Whichever day they're home, that's what we'll eat.

The best part about this menu is that I hardly have to buy any groceries for it, and Papa Murphy's pizza is really inexpensive -- cheaper than buying ingredients to make it myself, which is why we're going that route. I think this week's total food bill will be under $30. Sunday's meal was just leftovers, Monday's only required the purchase of poblano peppers, cheese and lettuce (less than $5), tonight's cost us just $10, the pizza should be $10-ish, and the only other thing I need to buy this week is a couple pounds of potatoes. You can't beat that!
