Menu Monday-January 23
Well last week worked out so nicely that I thought I would try again. Now this week wasn't as easy because I was out of town at a dance competition and had to make my meal plan on the fly. Again my goal was to use as much food from my pantry as possible. Here is what I came up with:
All of these items were already in the house-whoopee!!
2 lbs ground beef*
fiesta blend cheese*
soft shell tortillas*
*-items that had to be purchased; this is (approximately) a $12 meal for the 7 of us
all meal items were here
Gondola sweet bread
assorted lunch meats/cheese
*will have to buy bread-3 loaves $7
cold carrots with dip*
-we are the dessert so I will be making a coffee cake or cupcakes with boxed mix that I have
Our grocery bill for the week was $78. Not bad for a family of 7!!! I just know I could slash it even further if I could just get rid of convenience items for lunches!! I spend so much money on chips (baked), fruit snacks, etc. I wish I was diligent about buying more fruits and veggies!!
