Menu Plan Monday

I inadvertently spent quite a bit of money on groceries last week, so this week I made a concerted effort to plan cheap meals that I had most of the ingredients for already - it worked! I only spent around $30, which is pretty good for me.
As usual, recipes/pictures will be posted daily, or as often as I get around to posting them.
  • Monday: Kielbasa, roasted potatoes, corn & bread
  • Tuesday: Chicken caesar salad, garlic-cheese bread
  • Wednesday: Sloppy joes, chips, celery sticks, ranch dip
  • Thursday: Shredded beef chimichangas, beans, Chipotle-style rice
  • Friday: Tuna casserole, bread
  • Saturday: Beef fried rice, crab rangoon (carry-over from last week)
  • Sunday: Chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls

I realize this may be a good time to mention that my husband LOVES bread. He pretty much can't have a meal without it. So if my menus look a little carb-heavy, they probably are!

I was just thinking that about the bread... why can some people eat and others can't without gaining lots of weight?
