Frugal Family Favorites, 7 Day Menu Plan

It’s Monday again, and time to figure out what on the menu plan for this week. I have to say this week felt like a lazy menu planning week for me. When I’m having trouble coming up with things I want to cook I fall back on my family’s favorite meals.

Menu plan with recipe links

Lucky for me my family likes the frugal and easy recipes I make so this week will be an easy cooking week for me.

If you’ve seen past menu plans of mine, you know that I will make breakfast for dinner at least twice a month. It’s something my family loves and it’s easy for me to make.

Another favorite of ours is Mexican food. This week we’ll be having tacos and burritos. To make this dinner easy on me, I’ll prepare all the items and everyone gets to make their own. It’s great, everyone gets exactly what they want.

Another year-round favorite at our house is pizza. Pizza takes many forms in our house from stromboli to pizza pockets or even pizza prepared on the grill. Any way, I make it, my family loves it. We have it at least 2 times a month at our house.


Here’s what’s cooking at our house this week,

I love how easy these cinnamon twist scones are to make. They are as easy to mix up as biscuits, but turn out looking so fancy. Great for breakfast or brunch when company is coming over. They are also a frugal breakfast recipe costing only $.10 each. My family gobbles these up every time I made them.

Toast and Eggs


Cinnamon Twist Scones, Eggs, and Sausage

Eggs, Sausage, Hash Browns, and Homemade Biscuits

  1. Your menu looks so good this week! We also love having breakfast for dinner and taco night…taco night is great because everyone can make their tacos the way they like them, and breakfast is just so easy to throw together.
