One of our goals at BFC is to help people out and give them dinner ideas, on a budget, for the week. I have been planning out our meals at home for a little over 2 years now and it saves me so much time and effort. Plus, it gives me one less thing I have to think about after I get home from work. Each week, you will see a sample menu. Please feel free to use it as a guide or take it for your own.

Having set meals in place will help you with your grocery bill. Before you go to the grocery store, you can check your pantry to see what you have already and what items you need to pick up for dinner that week. Make your list based on the items you need and also include your weekly basics. If you stick to your list, your bill will start to go down because you start buying only the things you need and not something that “looks good” that day.

Here is the menu this week:

Monday – Turkey Alfredo
Tuesday – Tacos
Wednesday – BBQ Sandwiches
Thursday – Spicy Mesquite Chicken Fettucini
Friday – Potato Soup
