Menu plan

Last weeks menu was awesome, I followed it to the tee, and everything tasted so good! We loved the Mexican lasagna!! This week I am trying something new. I will be making some dried beans in the crock pot, then separating them into individual meal sized bags to have ready when I need them. Dried beans are so much cheaper than canned, and beans are so much cheaper than meat. So even though beans arnt really my families favorite food I am trying to find new ways to use them. Times seem to be getting tougher for everyone and the more frugal ideas the better!! With my beans this week we are going to try bean taco bake. So here is the whole menu:

dinner at moms

bean taco bake

chili, cornbread

meat loaf, fried potatoes, corn (Bennie b-day choice)

pork roast, potatoes, veggies

tater tot casserole

un-stuffed pepper soup

My family didn't like beans either, but I have been slowly adding then in and now the love them...it is possible to teach children (and husbands) to like beans ;-)
