I have been very bad at menu planning these past 2 weeks. I did not do my shopping one day. Even without a menu these past 2 weeks we had success with eating at home whatever we had at home. I only had to go shopping once on Thursday and spent less than $5 on items. It is possible from time to time to eat what you have at home and skip spending money. Now this coming up week I will need to BIG shopping trip we are out of LOTS of basic foods. I will likely be heading Dollar Tree, Aldi, and maybe Costco. This menu is built off what meats I have in the home. I am going to try theme day this week.
This week’s dinner menu:
Saturday, Februrary 25th, 2017 – Instant Pot Veggie Chili
Sunday, February 26th, 2017 – Streak with a side Green Beans and Rice
Monday, February 27th, 2017 – Leftovers
Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 – Ravioli with Vodka Sauce
Wednesday, March 1st, 2017 – Pork Lion with Veggie and Rice
Thursday, March 2nd, 2017 – Leftovers
Friday, March 3rd, 2017 – Braised Honey-Lemon Chicken (p.291)
Saturday, March 4th, 2017 – Boy scout Dinner
I am Vegetarian (Yep, just me) I still have Leftovers Calzones from Aldi so I will likely have one of those for lunch. I am between if egg salad sandwiches and lentils. For dinners I will eat veggie sausages or burgers as a replacement of meat. Also yummy homemade premium salad plus I ended LOVING my green pepper, oinions, and mushroom veggie cheese steak thinking about doing this week.
We have so much stocked up this week so my shopping list should be very minimal! I have been hoping to increasing my meal planning to once every 2 weeks but this week is not the week. I have the most pack busy week I could have dreamed of that it’s not a good week to plan 2 weeks… and due to my husband traveling in 2 weeks and just life happening I am not sure I can get 2 week menu planned until March.
Bread – Already grabbed 3 lofts of Dollar Tree on Saturday morning.
Mama needs wine just a few bottles to make this week (YES, again)! – I already grabbed 1 bottle at Costco which made it only a few hours so I need to more of the check stuff from Aldi.
Fresh fruit ( Based on price) – I grabbed a big box of Strawberry’s from Costco. I still need grab few more items from Aldi
Fresh veggies ( Based on price) – Need to grabbed one or two fresh items at Aldi.
1 packages Mushrooms – I picked a big package at Costco on Saturday.
Fresh Lemon Juice
3oz of Vodka
Red Wine Vinegar
I am doing my shopping hopeful this Saturday, with my husband and kids… so wish me LUCK! What are you severing up this week?
