OK, so now that all of our leftovers are gone, I guess that means I have to start cooking again…
Remember, my budget for groceries is $50 a week, and I didn’t go shopping at all last week except to get a few essentials (milk, etc.). So, this week I will need to restock my pantry and fridge while making good meals for my family.
Breakfast- Scrambled eggs with cheese
Lunch- Penne noodles with marinara sauce.
*At this point in my day, I will go to the grocery store*
Dinner- Meatloaf with green beans and mashed potatoes
Breakfast- Cinnamon french toast
Lunch- Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
Dinner- Sesame Chicken with sweet and sour sauce and rice
Lunch- Chicken nuggets
Breakfast- Scrambled Eggs with cheese and toast
Lunch- Chicken quesadillas
Dinner- Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti
Breakfast- Banana and peanut butter toast
Lunch- Turkey Roll Ups
Dinner- Pizza- every Friday we usually run to Little Ceasars and grab a pizza. A treat for all of us, and only $5!
Breakfast- Banana pancakes
Lunch- Leftover pizza
Dinner- We try to go once a week to my in laws or my parents’ house. We’ll have a barbeque or just hang out and snack all night.
