Frugal $5 Menu Plan Nov 4 – Nov 10

This post may contain affiliate links.

My goal is to provide dinner for my family for an average of $5 except on special occasions. We don’t have to eat beans and rice to accomplish this goal!  I shop the grocery sales each week.  Then I plan my menu based on the foods I have already at home (at a great price). I balance more expensive meals with less expensive ones. Because we cook multiples of each dish, we spend less time cleaning, cooking, and meal planning!
We were blessed with a load of produce last week so we’ve been eating lots of corn and potatoes.  Hubby has also been eating a lot of cabbage but he’s the only one who will touch it 😉
Dishes We’re Cooking

Chicken Enchiladas with Corn on the cob

Stouffer’s Lasagna with loaded baked potatoes (actually mashed potatoes loaded up with all the fixings)

 Toaster Strudels with Apple slices and Scrambled eggs
Chicken Nuggets with Corn on the cob and Bananas
Seasoned Potatoes and Garlic Pork (Grilled Tenderloin)

I’d like to work in a few new recipes this year.  I’d love to hear your suggestions of things you haven’t seen on my menus before!
