This menu has been included to show you how easy menu planning is. Of course your menu would be different from this one as it would be planned according to your family’s taste and needs.

Menu Planning Hints Used:


  • Left overs from Sunday’s Chuck roast are used to make sandwiches for Monday noon.
  • Baked beans, pea soup, eggs and peanut butter are used to keep meat costs down.
  • Chicken left over from Wednesday evening makes a delicious stir-fried dish on Thursday.
  • Some seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables are a bargain at certain times of the year. At other times, frozen or canned are cheaper.
  • This menu would be good for a week when the newspaper advertises roasting chickens and ground beef are “On sale”.
