Alright, so we just finished the meal plan and grocery shopping for this week. We are trying to keep the recipes frugal and straightforward to get the best bang for our dollar. As this week is the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend, we planned for six meals only and the menu was planned with the intention of utilizing the crockpot for many of these meals to help out with the busy weeknights.
I post my weekly menu to encourage menu planning and to give meal ideas, not as a nutritional standard. You should feed your family based on your priorities and values.
We always have eggs, bacon, oatmeal, pancake mix and cereal readily available in our stockpile.
◊Ham and Cheese Wraps/Mini Buns
◊We often eat leftovers for lunch.
These items typically last more than a week, and because we buy them every week, we usually have plenty in the cupboard.
◊fresh fruit (depending on what is in season)
◊great value granola bars
◊great value rice krispie squares
Dinners: You don’t have to make the same meals each day, feel free to mix it up in your way. This week we planned to use our crockpot a lot.
Sunday: Canadian Thanksgiving Family PotLuck (not included in meal plan)
Monday: Meatball Subs with Caesar Salad
Tuesday: Crockpot Lasagna
Wednesday: French Onion Pork Chops
Thursday: Swiss Cheese and Stuffing Chicken
Friday: Creamy Baked Ziti
Saturday: The Best Crockpot Ham
∅ I couldn’t find ziti, so we decided to use noodles we had in stock.
This week we spent $163.27.
