Menu Plan Monday ~ June 10, 2024


My Frugal Week

This week I made a gallon of green tea, a gallon of sweet tea, and we used drink packets to flavor some of our water. I mostly drink my water plain, but this week I used one Gatorade Zero Glacier Freeze while Bailey loves the Starburst Cherry ones. She also likes to add the Mermaid Skinny Syrup to her water. Someday I would like to try the Cotton Candy Skinny Syrup and see if it tastes good. 

We stopped at the Farmer's Market while we were out at yard sales on Saturday, and picked up fresh tomatoes, a head of cabbage and a watermelon, all for $15.00. I chopped up two of the tomatoes to go with dinner that night and they were delicious. 

Recipe of the Week

Spiced with ginger and cinnamon, this is the perfect warm drink. Both turmeric and ginger have anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties, so this is also a healthy drink. 

Golden Turmeric Latte


1 teaspoon Honey

Pinch of Turmeric Powder

Pinch of Ginger Powder

1 teaspoon Cinnamon

1 cup Nonfat milk your of choice 

Pinch of Pepper (Turmeric needs pepper to work)


Warm milk in a small pan and add honey, turmeric, ginger, pepper and cinnamon and whisk until combined.

Heat on low to medium heat until warm.

Pour in a mug and enjoy!

What’s on the Menu for This Coming Week

So far I am thinking we will have Cube Steak, Chicken Fajitas, and I'm undecided after that. 

How about you?

What’s been on the menu in your home this past week?

  1. We have lots of chicken fajitas leftover from entertaining, so we will definitely be having that! (Hawaii Planner)

  2. This past week, I have had chicken, green beans, chopped slaw, salad, potato one day, carrots, strawberries, grapes, blueberries, bananas and apples. I get on a jag where I want more beef than I should have, then I just go back to chicken. It is my favorite, anyway.
    After cleaning out half the freezer, I found so much cooked food that we could eat protein for a month without cooking. Plus, there is so much frozen raw meat that I don't need to look for a special for a long time.

    1. It's so nice to be stocked up on both cooked food and raw meat, so you don't have to look for specials for a while. You did so well getting in your fruits and vegetables. Kudos to you, Linda.

  3. I think I might have over done the meat sauce so after this nights Baked Spaghetti meal (along with one for Wednesday) I will be freezing the leftover sauce and probably a couple of slices of the Baked Spaghetti for later in the menu rotation.

    God bless.

    1. Freezing the leftover sauce is a great idea that way you can have it another day. Baked spaghetti sounds delicious!
