Weekly Menu: February 7th – 13th

Weekly Menus from Our Cozy Den ~ Feeding a family of 6 on under $250 a month!

It’s Monday again, so that means it’s menu day! My schedule has really started to fill like crazy these past few weeks. I’m trying not to get overwhelmed with all of the new activities we have been adding, and I’m considering cutting back on the blog posts. But I wouldn’t leave you without my weekly menu & receipt, so let’s see what we are eating this week!

 

As usual, a few notes before we get started:

  • Breakfast is not included in the menu, because in our house it is fend-for-yourself. But it is included in my budget and shopping. We pretty much eat oatmeal & eggs every day, with the occasional variance.
  • Snacks are also not on the menu, but my kids do get a snack each afternoon around 4 pm. Their choices are veggies (usually carrots and celery from my garden), fruit (I always have on hand a selection of oranges, bananas, apples, pineapple, berries, etc.), hard-boiled eggs, cheddar cheese sticks, yogurt, and granola bars.
