Menu Planning Monday

I am really excited about this weeks meals. I am only spending $25, yep that is right, and that $25 includes paper towels, and fun itmes too! So I am excited! I have mentioned that I need to re-organize my pantry, which I have not had the time to do (or made the time), but I have scheduled a block of time to do it tomorrow! So next weeks meals will be focused around the pantry! It is amazing, I will post pictures of the pantry before and after. I have a lot of room in there and I think I am addicted to buying pasta when it is on sale and I have coupons! Oh well, I will have a better functioning pantry when it is all said and done!

So here are this weeks meals! Also don't forget about the two giveaways I have going on, Angi's bow's, etc ends Monday tonight at 10pm and the Rachael Ray stoneware ends Wednesday!

Thanks for sharing your recipe for tilapia. I'm always looking for easy recipes for fish; my husband and son like it, but I don't, so it's hard for me to find recipes that sound good. :)
