Menu Plan- Freezer Clean Out

I'm trying to plan my entire week's menu with items that I already have on hand.  I spent $60 last week on groceries, and I hope to cut that this week to $40.  Not to mention the fact that my freezers (yes, both!) are almost completely full.  The menu plan really helped last week cutting down on the daily conundrum of "What should I make for dinner?"

Momma's little kitchen "helpers"

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shakes
Oatmeal with Cranberries x 2
Peanut Butter Toast and Fruit

PB and J Sandwiches
Macaroni and Cheese
Tuna Sandwiches
Leftovers x 2

Hamburgers/Cheeseburgers and Fries
Lemon Pepper Tilapia Filets and Salad
Italian Beef Sandwiches with Oven Roasted Seasoned Potatoes
Sloppy Joes and Almond Rice
5-Hour Beef Stew and My all-time favorite Quick Yeast Rolls

The picture of your kids is adorable! I like your menu layout with all three meal plans listed, I'm always searching for breakfast ideas and oatmeal with cranberries sounds wonderful! I think I'm also going to try the almond rice, thank you for sharing!
