Menu Planning: Week of April 20th

I am going frugal. I must. I have $97.00 until I am paid again and I have to feed four other people besides myself breakfast, lunch and dinner on it as well as get to and from work. Each week, I will be posting my kosher vegetarian dinner meal plan for the week and at the end of the week, the amount of money spent to get the ingredients.

You will note the Friday/Sunday option. Sometimes we are invited out for Shabbat and in that case, the recipe will be for Sunday. Thursdays will always be quick leftovers because it is Taekwando night.

Recipes of a select few to follow the menu. Some are tried and true (TT) and some are newbies (N).
