Menu Plan Monday 9/6/10

We are slowly getting back into the swing of things for school, thank heavens!  Now, if we can only get into the swing of things by sticking with the menu plan, I would be ecstatic! 

I've been experimenting with only shopping at Aldi for the last two weeks, and I have to say I am broadening my horizons.  I have always been open to trying new things, and we've now found some favorites that can only be purchased there.  Applewood spiral sliced ham, YUM!  I also have found that I am actually saving money by not using coupons.  Whew, I needed a break.  I'm sure that I won't be able to exclusively shop there because, my family likes them some Hellmann's mayo!

I'm linking my post to Menu Plan Monday where there are LOTS of other great meal ideas.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today...and leave me a comment,  I always LOVE to hear from you!
