On Thursday evenings I go out to my ladies’ accountability group with some friends. Last Thursday, when I got home, I was surprised (and happy!) to see that my husband had made a meal plan for 6 weeks! Along with a list of side dishes and a grocery list for each week, plus how much it would cost! If we can stick to the menu plan, the next 6 weeks of suppers should cost us less than $200..this is including the cost of milk for the kids and fruit..wow!
One of my meals from last week was homemade hamburger helper..I decided to make some to freeze, and had enough left over to freeze 2 meals! We’ll see how this turns out thawed later..I’m never sure how pasta will come out after it’s been frozen.
Last week we spent just under $30 on groceries. This was also including getting most of the things we’ll need for the whole menu plan. Not too bad! Louis is getting a LOT better at not picking up bags of chips when he gets groceries 🙂
This week’s menu is:
M- Baked salmon with uncle ben rice and corn
W- turkey stew
F- shake and bake pork with a sidekick and peas
S- chicken wings
Su- crock pot lasagna
