Menu Plan {May 6th-12th}

Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo so last week I found some great deals on Mexican type food and ingredients. I found limes on sale 5/$1, avocados for 29 cents, salsa on sale, and a few other things.

So, this week is Mexican meal week at our house. We won’t have Mexican type food every night, but I did plan several meals around the items I found on sale.

The limes will probably get used in some fun desserts and I am sure some of the avocados will get used to make my easy guacamole.

Did you find any good deals last week on Mexican type foods? 

Here is the dinner plan for the week.


leftovers/snack type foods ( My goal is to start making our Sunday evening meal as easy as possible with either a very simple meal or breakfast for dinner.)

Chili Relleno Casserole ( Pictured above)

Chili Bean Casserole (New Recipe I am trying)

Grilled Sausages and Oven Potatoes 

Mexican Pizza

Deer Steak (I am not sure what I will serve with this.)

Homemade Pizza

  1. I’ve noticed that your family eats quite a bit of pork. Have you researched the effects pork has on your health? Our family quit eating it 5 years ago because of what we discovered.

  2. Avocados for 29 cents?? The “deal” here was an avocado for $1.29. I wasn’t going to splurge on that just so I could eat chips all afternoon.

    • Yes, Aldi’s had them for that price so I bought quite a few. I rarely buy them because the normal price is over $1 each usually, my daughter was thrilled when I bought them because she loves them and I rarely get them unless they are on sale.

    Maybe you can do a carne asada with the deer steak?

  4. I’m jealous of the deals you got! The limes is appealing. Of course that would require me making a trip to the grocery store and I haven’t been able to get there this past week.
