Post image for Frugal Meal Plans #7

We ended up camping last week so I used some of my canned items and easy items for meals. I also ended up being sick for most of the week so nothing fancy was made! Now that the weather is starting to cool off (hopefully!) the vegetable bounty is going down and we have less variety to choose from so my meal plans will start to get a little more "planned".


  • Smoothies 
  • Cottage Cheese + Fruits
  • Gluten Free Applesauce Muffins *recipe coming!*
  • Chocolate Banana Gluten Free Muffins
  • Leftovers (Yep, that's all. We are leftover people I guess!)
  • Cucumbers
  • Leftovers
  • Meatballs and Tomato Gravy (I made extra meatballs, cooked them up and put them in the freezer for future meals.)
  • Fried Zucchini & Onions
  • Roasted Tomatoes with Mozzarella Cheese
  • Steak
  • Chicken, Canned Potatoes
Dessert & Snacks:
What are you planning for meals this week?

I’m a leftover people too. I don’t plan lunches at our house because I rely on leftovers. If we don’t have leftovers, I usually just do cheese, crackers and fruit or a scrambled egg with some veggies or something. My 7 year old packs his lunch, but I have a 5 day rotation of “entrees” for him with a reserve few extra ideas. He never gets tired of a peanut butter sandwich or cream cheese rolled up in a whole wheat tortilla.

I love this so much! We are trying to have frugal gluten/free free also. My major challenge is kids lunches, its almost tempting to homeschool we would save a fortune!
