          Sorry, no menu here. I pull something out of the freezer each afternoon and try to use whatever I have fresh in the fridge. We rarely decide what's for dinner until that day, although we also rarely make special trips to the store for anything because I try to keep the essentials well stocked.

            plan by the day. depends on what the kids have not eaten for that day, and what we are in the mood for that night.

                  Re: what is your menu for the week?

                  I have never had a menu. We eat out of our pantry, a few basic meals, that vary with the seasons. A lot eggs, and bread, and beans, and torillas, and potatoes. Lots of combinations possible. I think it is very possible to be thrifty without a menu, if you eat many of the same basic low cost foods. Every now and then we have to use up a vegetable, but so many dishes can do that.

                      Re: what is your menu for the week?

                      Why so many menus?
                      I found that I was not eating a balance diet and need to use what I had in the freezer. As I do OAMC by mini plans. Cooking up a meal for four then freezing three portions in which I needed to use up within two months. These are menus for using up whose frozen dinners and having other meals at the same time. I have lived alone for past ten years. At the moment I am living off my freezer and pantry for next few months.
                      I'm posting an item on 'Meal Strategies for one' in my Blog in the next few days.

                              Monday...Pork chops, corn, rice
                              Tuesday...Tuna Helper

                              It's amazing how much money I saved by planning a menu...usually a month at a time. I used to hit the grocery store each day after work to pick up something for dinner. I can't even begin to think how much money I wasted by doing that.
