Menu Plan Monday 3/26/12

This week, I decided to try to include a few meatless meals. The prices of meat are out of this world, and I can’t seem to adjust to the new normal for them. A good sale price to me used to be under $1.99/lb for ground beef. Now it’s apparently $2.69 or above. That puts a real pinch on my budget. I’ve been falling back on boneless skinless chicken breasts which I can still find for under $2.00/lb.

The Pasta with Asparagus is one of my favorite spring recipes because the prices of asparagus are low, and you can get cheaper grape or cherry tomatoes. I practically lived on this when I was an Out of Time Single Gal. It’s great topped with your choice of cheese. (Fontina is delish if you’re the fancy sort)

So this is what is on the plate this week. Special thanks to Orgjunkie.com for the Menu Plan Monday linkup.
