Using What You've Got...MPM (June 25-July1)

Hey there!

This year has really flown by! Summer is already in full swing and in just over a week, it will be Independence Day! There has been a lot going on around here and my menu has been all over the place. So has my cleaning routine, but that's another story for another day! I'm back at it though. Some unexpected purchases have me searching in the pantry and freezer for easy summer meal ideas, as I haven't had my usual grocery budget.

Unfortunately, we are one of millions of households that live paycheck to paycheck. I do my best though, to really stretch my dollars when I can. The freezer isn't very stocked (it's small and honestly hard to organize. When I get a new fridge...whenever that will be...I will not get one with the freezer on the bottom!), but the pantry has some treasures. DH is out of town until Saturday, so that has helped stretch the budget, too.

Here is what is on the menu this week:

Monday- kids ate at Grandma's.

Tuesday- breakfast nachos

Wednesday- my version of American goulash

Thursday- kids will be back at Grandma's.

Friday- cheesy polenta with cherry tomatoes and spinach

Saturday- Your On Your Own

Sunday- Hungarian hamburger steak, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, cucumber salad, peanut butter pie
