This is one of those weeks, so I created a menu plan that will use what we have in the house with only a few $'s spent at the store. We have plenty of apples to snack on and for cooking. We also received some more potatoes yesterday, so I may do something more with them.
Sunday: Breakfast Casserole
Monday: Spaghetti, marinara sauce, bread
Tuesday: Tacos, beans and rice (beans and rice are in the freezer, and shredded steak cooked in the crock for the taco meat)
Wednesday: Barbeque chicken, mashed potatoes, and fresh veggies
Thursday: Beans in the crockpot with homemade rolls
Friday: BBQ Pork and fried rice
What we'll need: dried beans, spaghetti sauce, and milk for a total of $5 at the grocery store.
Lunches are bologna sandwiches, peanut butter sandwiches, salads, and cheese and crackers for Kaia and Dana. I eat leftovers. Breakfast is cereal for the kids and Dana eats cereal alternating with sausage and egg.
On pay day, I plan to do some stocking up! Our freezers are empty of meat! I like to have at least a few pounds of ground beef, some inexpensive steak cuts and a whole chicken in the freezer. But, as you can see from the menu, we have chicken thighs, 1 steak, and the sausage is in the fridge. I'm hoping Wednesday's ads have some good prices!
What are you eating this week?
