Menu Planning Monday

I feel so scattered today so I hope this all comes out right and not disjointed.

There are two exciting things I have found this weekend in blogland. First I found Menu Planning Monday at I am not quite sure how to actually link back to a blog so until my husband is awake to tell me...this is all I can do.
Before I do my first week of meal planning I need to tell you about the other thing I found. It is the Eat from the Pantry challenge at Life as Mom. This will sort of dictate what my menu's look like.
My family of 3 only grocery shop once or twice a month as it is but this month we want to cut as much as possible to save money so no better time for the pantry challenge. So here goes....

M: Broccoli Cheese Soup with Chicken chuncks

Tues: Hambuger Helper probably cheesy Quesodilla

W: Talapia, potatoes, and green beans

Thur: Leftovers but probably along with Mac 'n' Cheese

Fri: Pork Chops, potatoes, corn

Sat: Beef Stew

Sun: Shepard's Pie

I will make extra of everything so we can have leftovers and so Clayton can have lunch for work everyday.
For me I will have a bagel and cream cheese for breakfast everyday and for lunch I will have either a lean pocket or progresso soup.
Since this is a first for me I have no pretty ready-made recipes to post as I go BUT as I go this week I will take pictures and ready posts to go along with it.
