Menu Monday is back...for now

Hi y'all! So, I'm trying to stay on track and keep posting Menu Monday. I'm still trying to keep us on our weekly budget that I first mentioned here and honestly I've been doing pretty good. I went grocery shopping tonight after work, which I hate to do but it had to be done, and went a little over budget spending $94.36. But, it's not to bad, I was able to stock up on some awesome meat sales Kroger was having so I am sure I have enough meat to last into next weeks menu planning. Is it just me or does meat take most of your grocery budget? It's getting crazy out there!!

I am loving my new menu board and the Mr has stopped asking me every day at 4:00 via a text message "What's for dinner?" because he is able to check it out on his way to work. One thing I have learned about posting my menu plans here is that we need to try some new recipes. I am kind of a picky eater. The Mr. will eat anything. So, I am going to be spending a lot of my free time checking out new recipes, if you have any good ones feel free to share :)

This is what we have planned at Twenty63 this week:

Me: Blueberry muffins and yogurt
Hubs: Banana and OJ

Me: Caesar salad with chicken, grapes and graham crackers and peanut butter
Hubs: Ham & Cheese sandwiches, grapes, fruit snacks, cheese crackers and baked lays

Monday: Pizza & Buffalo Wings
Tuesday: Baked Ziti & Garlic Knots
Wednesday: Grilled BBQ Chicken, Grilled Corn & Rice
Thursday: Enchiladas & Mexican Rice
Friday: Leftovers
Saturday: Brother in Law's Wedding
Sunday: The Hubs Birthday & Father's Day Dinner Out

This week we don't have a date night but we have a wedding to go to which will be fun. Saturday is the hubs birthday, as he welcomes on the big 3-1, our nieces birthday, she is turning 22 (which makes me feel old!) and Father's Day so it should be pretty busy.

What's on your menu this week? Have you tried any new recipes lately? I need to add some to my old book so add them below or copy and paste a link!
