Menu Plan Monday - Buying in Bulk Edition

This week on Frugal Feasting we are going to be talking about "Buying in Bulk." This can be a great way to save money on groceries and develop a great pantry. But not everything is great in mega-sized packages! We'll talk about what I buy in bulk and what I don't. I'll be posting lots of recipes using my bulk purchases - including "Apple Berry Bars" a delicious new cookie recipe I found!

As for dinners this week? I'm playing the "use what you have" game because I have a LOT of eggs to use up. Having chickens is great. I love watching them and mostly I love the fresh eggs I get everyday. Right now I'm averaging four eggs a day - that makes two plus dozen a week! Needless to say, right now I have an abundance of eggs and will be using some up this week in my dinner menus.


  • lunch meat sandwiches
  • yogurt with granola
  • Campbell's soup that I got on sale
  • leftovers
  • Bread and cheese souffle (using eggs), salad
  • croquettes (recipe posted this week), steamed broccoli and cauliflower
  • Taco stuffed shells, mexican rice (recipe this week), salad
  • Broccoli Cottage Cheese Casserole, fruit, bread
  • Homemade egg noodles with butter sauce, veggies with ranch, fruit
  • Soup and bread - bean soup in the crockpot
Make sure you come back tomorrow to check out the latest installment of Frugal Feasting. If you need more menu inspirations, go check out Organizing Junkie!
