The First Menu of 2013

Here is the weekly menu for the first week of 2013 (and the first week of my grocery challenge)...

Sunday:  Homemade pizza (Herbed pizza crust, Four Cheese white pizza for me, meat for the rest of the crew).  We were supposed to have this last week but we had plans change things up for us...

Monday:  Appetizer night (with my parents and sis/family).  One of the favorite nights of the year.  Just about every dip and snack you can think of. I have a few recipes to share from that in the next week or so)

Tuesday:  Hopping John
(Cinnamon swirl bread for breakfast)

Wednesday: On Your Own night (probably finishing up appetizers and desserts from our festivities the last week or so :)

Thursday:  Butter Cream Chicken over angel hair pasta, stuffed cheese rolls, carrots/ Ranch

Friday: Creamy burrito casserole (new recipe)

Saturday: Bacon wrapped pork tenderloin (new recipe), black eye peas, fingerling potatoes, some kind of bread or roll...to be decided :)

So far with our receipts, we have used 29.5% of our grocery budget for the month.  I am going to have to buckle down next week and shop a little lighter to make sure we have something to eat that last week of January. :)

What is for dinner at your house for this first week of 2013?
